It's been great except for the rolling black-outs they are conducting! You know, when it's a bone-chilling 16 degrees -- a few minutes with your heat off doesn't take long for your fingers to start turning blue! Not to mention, we have no carpet in our house! These hard-surface floors get cold in a hurry! Lucky us, we have a frozen pipe in our bathroom! With the space heater plugged in and blowing hot air on it, hopefully we'll escape without any trouble.

|We've had this marble track for about 9 years|
and it still entertains us! This time the kids
started the track off of the mantle and used
a marble jump to land to the rest of the track
on the ground! It's totally cool!
Snow days, or in this case, ice days, are a blessing from the Lord. I really believe it's His way of saying "slow down!" It's really a sabbath of sorts!
With such a cold day outside, the yumminess of something creamy and hot will just hit the spot. I don't think I've posted this recipe yet. It is so easy and a crowd pleaser with the kiddos!
Creamy Crock Pot Chicken
4 frozen boneless and skinless chicken breasts
1 package Good Seasonings dressing packet
1 - 8oz block of cream cheese*, cut up
Noodles or Rice to serve under the chicken
Place frozen chicken in your crock pot and sprinkle with the dry dressing mix. Turn on high and cook for 4-6 hours or until done. When done, using 2 forks, shred the chicken into chunks in the crock pot.
About 30 minutes before serving, drop in cream cheese and melt. Stir around, mixing the seasoning, cream cheese and chicken together. Serve over the noodles or rice.
*I use the Weight Watcher's cream cheese. It's cheaper and healthier than the other leading brand!
