Last week I got to volunteer in Kathleen's room for USA day. I think I was just as excited as she was! She wanted me to ride in on the bus with her, lol. When Hayley started school we were new to the area and Kathleen was just born so I had no one to watch her so I could volunteer for Hayley's school functions. I always felt like I missed so much. So this year I have signed up for everything!! Camera in tow of course!!
Here is Kathleen modeling her outfit for the day....complete with sparkly shoes!
And another cause she so adorable!
Then we added a little sweater because it was quite chilly that day!
Getting ready to say the pledge of allegiance at their big flag out front of the school. They made special flags.
This little boy was so sweet! Every time he saw me lift my camera he started to smile the biggest smile!
Hot dogs, apple pie, and red, white and blue! Can't go wrong! ;-) The little boy next to her is one of her "boyfriends" :-)
When she got home she came up from the basement (playroom) dresses as a Princess. There's ol Sally always by our sides!
Today I went in to volunteer again and this was the only picture I had time to take because most of the time was supervising the puppet craft and the glue from getting everywhere! They are reading Miss Wishy Washy.
So tonight is another busy night, we are headed out to the YMCA for our cycling class. I needed an easy dinner recipe and decided the crockpot is my best fit for these evenings of running. So I got it all prepared..
There are carrots and potatoes underneath there, I can't wait to get home tomight and smell the delicious dinner already cooked! Perfect for this rainy day we're having too. Even better is there will be enough for lunch tomorrow for Jerry and the girls too.
Here's the recipe:
One Pot Easy Chicken
6-8 medium sized potatoes quartered (I use mini red potatoes and leave them uncut)
1-2 large onions sliced (I reduce this amount just because the girls are not big fans of onions)
3-5 carrots cubed (I use prewashed carrots)
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
5 lbs chicken skin removed (quarters or legs and thighs work well)
1 small onion chopped
3/4 black pepper
2 tsp. whole cloves
2 tsp. garlic salt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano ( I use dry and it works fine too)
1 teasponn dried rosemary
1/2 cup lemon juice
1. Mix together potatoes, sliced onions, carrots, 1 tsp. garlic salt, and 1/4 tsp black pepper in bottom of crockpot.
2. Rinse chicken and pat dry. In a bowl mix together chopped onions, 3/4 tsp. black pepper
cloves and 2 tsp. garlic salt. Dredge chicken in seasonings. Place in slow cooker over vegetables.
3. In small bowl mix together oregano, rosemary, and lemon juice. Pour over chicken.
4. Cover. Cook on low 6-8 hours or until vegetables are soft and chicken juices run clear.
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
