Happy Valentines!

What a busy week! We celebrated Valentine's with a special lunch before Brian went to work. We all got small but special gifts to celebrate.

Aubree and Carter went to the dentist this week for their cleaning and check-up. Both got good reports, however, he did say that we would probably know for sure at the next appointment whether or not Aubree will need braces. I really hope not! Caleb is still battling the teething thing. He's not sleeping well at all and is just almost miserable. Poor little guy! It's heartbreaking to see a little baby hurting.

I have to include something here about Whitney Houston. I was so saddened to hear of her passing this week. As a young girl growing up in the 80s and 90s I really loved her! I can't tell you how many times we sang and danced to her music at many slumber parties! I don't care what demons she faced in her life. All I know is that she loved God, was an awesome mother, and could sing! I know she is at peace now.

And I tried a new recipe this week so I thought I'd share. It was a hit!
Sour Cream and Bacon Crockpot Chicken

7-8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup sour cream
2 cans of roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup flour

Cook bacon in a pan being sure that it remains pliable and NOT crisp. Drain on paper towel.
Wrap one piece of bacon around each chicken breast and place in 4-5 quart crockpot.
Combine soups, sour cream, and flour in mixing bowl. Blend with wire wisk and pour over chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
Remove the chicken and blend the sauce with wire wisk until well blended then pour over chicken.
I served mine with wide egg noodles but think rice would be good also.
Enjoy! :)

My 3 little Valentine's!

The shirt says it all!

He did so good!

My flowers from Brian. Iris's and Stargazers!

One of the greatest singers of my generation! This is how I will always remember her. She had a beautiful smile and voice.


  1. I have a similar recipe and love it, but mine's not for the crock pot. I'll definitely have to try this one though because everything is much easier with a crock pot! Pretty flowers...looks like y'all had a good Valentine's! And it looks like Carter is actually lying still for his teeth cleaning...I didn't know he knew how lol!

  2. Yes! The crockpot makes life easier! This was Carter's second time to go to the dentist. He made me hold his hand the first time but was a big boy this time.
