It is rather cold outside today. Jacob is so sick and I think Baby Jacob is getting sick again too. Not fun. My poor guys. We had soup and grilled cheese for dinner last night. Yum. Great thing for a cold day. I got this campbells select or something... Mexican Chicken Tortilla soup. OMG. So good. I am not a huge soup person but I really like Chinese Hot and Sour soup and Mexican Chicken Tortilla. This soup was so darn good. I am going to stock up on some before they go off sale at Stater Brothers.
Off on Wednesday to LA to Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles to see the doctor for a follow up visit with the orthopedic doc. Baby Jacob has had his foot brace since September and they want us to come and see how it is changing his foot. I cannot believe how much it is changed just in that short time. So we will see what they have to say Wednesday. I love making progress, but I hate going down there. It is such a long drive in horrible traffic and it is an all day thing. I am glad Jacob got to take the day off though and is going to be able to go with me. He goes most of the time, but sometimes just can't get the time off work.
I want to get some loose end projects done here so I can start on some new ones. I have a few things I want to do, but don't want a million started and not finished things around. If that is the case I tend to get nothing done. :)
We are having pork strips for dinner, and they have been marinating since yesterday morning. We were going to have them yesterday but went with the soup instead. I am marinating them in Lawrys Steak and Chop marinade. YUMMO. Salad and angel hair parmesean noodles. Making me hungry now.
Until next time

I recently found this recipe and I love it.
Chicken Breasts (approx.4) I however used a whole chicken and shredded it up
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cans of Rotell tomatoes. I used mild
Shredded Cheese, Mexican blend
Doritos (plain or nacho cheese or spicy nacho cheese, which ever you prefer)
Cook chicken and shred.
Mix soup and tomatoes together. Pour over chicken in a cassarole dish.
Sprinkle with cheese.
Crunch up doritos and sprinkle over the top.
Cover with foil.
Bake at 350* for about 40 minutes or until heated through.
You can sprinkle more cheese over the top right when you take it out and let melt.
Great with a small dolup of sour cream on top.
I know I am going to make this for dinner again one night this week.
* 8 ribbon packs
I cannot wait to get started using up all of these yummy goodies.

I cannot even believe that my baby turned 7 months old last Friday. WOW. I love this picture I took of him on Friday. Each month I take a picture of him on his month birthday. This is my favorite from that one.
This is my favorite picture of the puppy who is officially now named Ginger.
Yes count them, I got 18 photos on this double layout. So proud of myself. I am not completely done yet, but this is the photo placement.
I am not a huge card maker, which is really strange. I love making cards, but for some reason I just don't make them very often. Here is one I just made the other day. I love how it turned out. I used watercolor paper and then watercolor pencils to color them all in.

Welcome to 2008...Happy New Year ! Can you even believe that it is already 2008? I swear it was just 2000, and they thought all computers and electronics would not work at the stroke of midnight that year. Wow, we have come along way since then. Can you think of all the things in your life that have changed since the year 2000? I saw something one time and it had all these questions including things like what were you doing 10 years ago this month, and 5 years ago this month and a year ago this month. Wouldn’t that be a fun scrapbook layout?
I have a few things to do today, but nothing major.
I don't really have "resolutions" per say, but goals more like I guess. Things I want to accomplish and get done this year I guess. Things I want to start doing more of.
I want to make more things ahead of time, like dinners and put them in the freezer for later nights. This is one of goals at least. I want to get "caught up' close to date on my scrapbooking. I have a few projects around the house I want to do.
I am glad that 2007 is over, and am looking forward to a new start on a year. I am anticipating alot of change is going to happen in 2008. Jacob may be getting laid off, but we don't know anything for sure yet, so we will see. I hope this is a good year and only time will tell.
Have a great day.
