So I saw this same idea on another friends blog (thanks Liz) and thought it would be fun to see what kind of response I get. I love to cook but just like so many people I find that I make the same thing over and over cause it is easy. So any of you that have any good recipes, that are easy but not common I would love to get them and try them. I decided as well since I am the one begging for "non common" recipes that I could share one myself hope you all enjoy!

Chicken Rotell:

4 chicken breasts
1 can rotell tomatos (mild)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1-2 cups shredded cheese

Cook chicken and shred it. Mix rotell tomatos and cream chicken soup together in bowl then add shredded chicken. In a 13X9 baking pan start to layer, Doritos first then chicken mixture then cheese and repeat until pan is full. Cook in oven at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes just until cheese is melted and chicken mixture is bubbling a bit. Serve with a little sour cream and maybe a salad on the side mmm it is really good.

For all of you that try it let me know if you like it and thanks for sharing if you do ;)

Auntie Jess took pictures of Kai and Eli the other day and I just couldn't pick one they were all cute. Can you believe Kai is only a month older than Eli!? In some of these pics he looks way older. What if Kai has Giantism?

Kai was TaGGed by Brooklyn...

Kai was tagged by his cute little friend Brooklyn so now I get to write 10 cute things about him this will be a fun tag for me sorry if it is not so fun to read..

1. Kai has always been a great sleeper he slept through the night at 8 weeks and has ever since, this is number one to me and I know all you mama's will understand why.

2. I love how Kai always has a smile for anyone that wants one, you smile at him and he will smile right back.

3. Latley one of his favorite things to do is play with his toys. Every morning I put his toys on the bed with him and he will serioulsy play alone for almost 30 minutes.

4. Kai has a really fun giggle I wish you could all hear it, he doesn't giggle on command so it is one of my favorite things when he does.

5. I love that he talks himself to sleep and wake's up talking to himself (gotta love baby monitors).

6. As you all know he has a helmet and I was really nervous about him having it but he has been so good with it and doesn't act like it bothers him at all.

7. Latley Kai loves the bath as you have seen from other posts and being a swimming teacher this makes me so happy.

8. Kai loves going for walks and because of this I have been able to take advantage of the good weather when it comes and get a workout. I can tell already most of our summer will be spent outside.

9. I love when Kai and cousin Eli play together it is so cute how interested they are in eachother.

10. I love his chubby legs and how he has never said no to food. A lady in church said "well he hasn't missed a meal huh"..I don't know how I feel about that because I am not a skinny mom but it was funny anyways.

Dad's day off...

JR had a day off this week, so we decided to make the best of it. Kai's day started off in the toy box, then we decided to visit Grandma and Grandpa Great! (JR's grandparents) they were thrilled to see Kai, and Kai got to hold a 2 day old chihuahua while we were there it was soo little and cute but I forgot to take a picture :(. After we left G and G great's house we went with Erin and Tom for lunch at Ruth's diner (very good food), and then we went back to their house for a good ole game of canasta and of course Erin and I won! Then we can't forget the sore loser's (Tom and JR) crying on the couch. Then Skyler (Erin and Tom's dog) almost knocking Kai off his back cause JR decided to call for him right as Kai had sat down..uh hello! All in all it was a nice day it's fun to have daddy home with us during the week.

BEWARE naked baby!

I just love this kid! Kai's new favorite thing is to play with his superman ball in the tub. We threw it in one night and these were the results, he even figured out how to splash the water so the ball would come back to him. He is so smart. Hope you enjoy the pics, I always love a cute naked baby don't you guys?!! P.S. if you look close in the second to last picture you can see Kai's two bottom teeth.

TaG a RooNie!

Jorg this is for you......
1. What is your most embarrassing moment? I pooped my pants ( I was 20 years old) all I am going to say is everytime I pass Yuba Lake I can't help but think of that tragic night!
2. What is something that you think about and laugh at every time? Well I wasn't even home when this happened but here's the story Jessica my little sis and her friend Kaylee were having a sleepover and my mom decided to shower, after her shower she laid down on the couch while Jessica and Kaylee made Mac and Cheese. Well anybody that knows Jess knows she can't cook and I guess niether could Kaylee they ended up getting so much crap on the kitchen stove that the fire alarm went off and by this time my mom had fallen fast asleep wet hair and all and as soon as the alarm went off my mom rolled off the couch with an expression I am sure (by the way Kaylee and Jess tell the story) will live in their minds forever. Anyways mom is rolling off the couch and freakin out half awake hair matted to the side of her head and all! Needless to say if it were a real fire they probably all would have burned. (can't you just picture dorth wet matted hair to one side and her genuine concern for her life!! hahhaha I seriously do laugh everytime I hear that story and even though I wasn't there I have a pretty good picture of what it looked like)
3. What is you favorite season and why? Summer Summer Summer do I really have to say why?
4. Who is your hero? Well for those of you who know JR he thinks he is everyone's hero but, I would have to say as of right now in my life Joseph Smith is he could have so easily just said ok I am lying and just avoided all the persecution but he didn't so he is my hero today.
5. What have you learned throughout your life that you would share as advice for others? Don't ask for other people's advice unless you really want it.
6. What is your favorite goofy thing that your spouse does which makes you fall in love all over again? When he sings songs to me and adds my name to song somehow I love it cause it is so out of his character, but he aint no Josh Groban!
7. What is your favorite book(s)? I love Twilight but have been pretty disappointed in the second one New Moon I just can't seem to get through it.
8. What is your favorite quote? I don't have a favorite quote per say but I love quoting movies so here ya go "you can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking your head up a bulls ars but wouldn't you rather take the butchers word for it"
9. Where in Utah is your favorite place to hike? I love hiking in Southern Utah I have been to many cool places there but one I have very fond memories of and would love to go back to is goblin valley and little wild horse (but I love most of the hikes I have been on in Utah)
10.What is your favorite hobby? I love a good game of badmitton! LOL I am joking although that game can be fun! But I really love sewing.

aPriL fOOls dAy pranks!

Ok so I know I am a day late but this is pretty random I love the guy pranking dancing around like a big dork (you just have to watch the video link above). I have not participated in april fools day jokes since Aunt Neta and Ralda and even then I was the one being pranked, and now I can't get away with anything cause I have teased JR so many times that he never believes me, I mean he didn't even believe me when I told him I was pregnant with Kai he made me take a pregnancy test in front of him hahahaha I am totally the "girl who cried wolf". Well happy late april fools day and if any of you have some funny prank stories, do tell...
