So much for April showers!

Today we hung out at Robin's house and let the kids play in the snow. They had so much fun! Daxton did such a good job making his very own snowman!

Aly loved being outside in the snow!

Karley loved playing in the little house!

Pretty little Snow Princess Karley!

Dax worked so hard building his snowman!

Dax put every detail into this snowman. He wanted whoppers for eyes and buttons, and a carrot nose and he found a stick for it's mouth.

He even gave the snowman his own hat so that it would have one!

Jaxon and Daxton with Daxton's awesome snowman!

The kids loved making snow angels!

Josh teasing Daxton by stealing his easter eggs.

Good old Josh jumped into our picture....gotta love him!!!!

We spent Easter Sunday with my family. We had an easter egg hunt for the kids and they loved it. We ended up having to help Karley because Daxton was too fast and good at it. After the egg hunt the kids and I decorated easter eggs.

Karley's Family Birthday Party

Ok don't judge this cake.....it did not turn out very good! I usually don't have a problem decorating cakes, but this one was a challenge for me. I could not get her eyes and mouth right to save myself. After re-doing it like three times I gave up. Everyone said that it was good, but I knew they were just being nice. I honestly kept looking at it thinking something was missing, but I just figured it was because her eyes and mouth were so crappy. After thinking or dreaming about it all night long, I woke up and knew what I forgot... her dumb eyelashes! I am sure that would have helped make her look a little better....lol! Well maybe there is a way I can photoshop them on and maybe while I am at it I can fix her eyes and mouth...lol

Nick got these flowers for Karley for her birthday.....she loved them

Karley's 4th Birthday Party

The invitations that not only frustrated the crap out of me , but took way too long to make...lol

I tried to get a picture of all of the girls together, but Karley wasn't cooperating. I thought that if I hurried and put her on the couch, that I might be able to snag one of all of them....but I was too slow. I got one of her getting away and all of her friends are looking away except one....bummer

I can't believe my little girl is now four years old....wow time sure does fly by! This year Karley wanted to have a little mermaid party. The kids ate lunch, made bracelets, played games, and broke a pinata...oh and I can't forget the best part they all got to dress up as their favorite princess's.... so freaking cute!

Chicken Divan

12 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast, thawed and salted, 1/4 cup lemon juice.

Place chicken on a baking dish and sprinkle with salt and lemon juice. Cover with foil and cook in the oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.

24 Spears of Broccoli
Steam broccoli until fork tender and set aside. ( I used asparagus, it was also just as good).

2-8 oz Packages Cream Cheese, at room temperature
2 cups milk
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Salt
1 Cup Parmesan Cheese, divided

Using a hand mixer, combine the cream cheese and milk until completely smooth, add salt and garlic salt and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Mix well. Cook in a heavy pan or double boiler, stirring until thickened.

Arrange 2 spears of broccoli on each plate. Place a chicken breast on broccoli. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese over sauce. I sprinkled fresh Parmesan over the top, but you can do either. You also can half this recipe.

Makes 12 servings.

Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
