What a month!

Here we are, July 3rd....already!  Where did this month go?  

HAHA!  Obviously it JUST started has already been a long one.

Before I go any further I want to give a shout out to my oldest of my little brothers.....Blake!
Circa 1980-something...sorry for the blurry-ness
Today is HIS birthday!  WooHoo!!
Our little family

We love you Blakey and hope you have a WONDERFUL day!

Ok, now on to why it has been a LONG month.....already.

So, last week I noticed a hole in one of Mads teeth.  Fantastic.  I made a quick call to the dentist and got an appointment ASAP!  I also made an appointment for MG at the same time just to get her checked out......a lot of money later and.....

She needs a root canal.  Awesome.  Ugh!  But, we aren't real sure they will be able to do one since the tooth is still fairly newish and her being so young the roots may not have closed yet.  The things you learn when calling doctors/dentists.

So instead of a root canal they may do this thing called Calcium Hydroxide Treatments.  Yeah, have no idea what it is or why it is done but, they do it when the roots aren't closed.  BUT, she may just need to get it filled.

All in all...we just aren't sure yet.  I do know when I close my eyes, all I see is.....$$$$$.

So, when do we go in for this treatment, or not, may just be nothing, who knows?


In just a few hours.

Please keep her in your prayers that she will not feel the pain and everything will go smoothly and she recovers just fine.  Everyone keeps telling me it will be OK and she won't feel anything.  People!  I have had root canals done feel something and that something does NOT feel good!  Add me to your prayers as well, that I will stop freaking out inside.

As for MGs checkup?
Waiting at the dentist
It went great.....sort of.....

She has no cavities!  Which is GREAT!

But....she bit the dentist.

I am not surprised though, if you knew this child (no, really knew her...not just see her every now and then), you would not be surprised either.  She is a little stinker!  But a darn cute stinker!

Oh, see that little spot on her cheek?  Remember the rash and diarrhea (sorry, I know that is SO beyond gross) episode we went through last year?  Well, the rash never went away and we still have no clue what is causing it.

We go to the derm about that next week.

What else am I doing this month?  Well, someone put me in charge of 35 bloggers for a campaign over at Cbias!  I know, who would do that?  Right?!?  I can read your mind!  But, it is FUN and a lot of hard work and...I am LOVING it!  I will tell you more about it in a few days...once I have a second to actually think.

So, for right now...that is my month.  At any given time it can change, and I am sure it will.

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL week and a safe 4th.

Much Love,

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
