Fun in the Snow!

On Monday we finally got enough snow to go out and play in. Before this, it had always been a dusting. So, the boys got all dressed up, went out and made snow angels and had a snowball fight. They had a lot of fun, and didn't want to come back inside! :)

New Year's Eve Celebration

My parents and Laura were able to come celebrate New Year's Eve with us. We had Christmas with them when they came. Here are the boys opening some of their gifts.

Here are the boys opening their gifts from Great Grandma & Papa.

After opening gifts, we went shopping to get some snacks for that evening. Here are the boys in the store. As you can see, D.J. enjoyed it, but Brandon got a little bored. :)

We had a lot of fun eating, playing games and waiting for midnight!

As per request :)

Here is the chicken recipe that I was requested to post.
Crock pot Chicken
2/3 c. flout
1 t. basil
1 t. seasoned salt
1/4 c butter (or margarine)
2 c. chicken broth (sometimes I use the canned, sometimes I make my own with bullion cubes)
In a bowl, combine flour, basil and seasoned salt. Coat chicken with flour mixture. Reserve remaining flour mixture. Melt butter in a frying pan, and use to brown chicken on all sides. Transfer chicken to slow cooker. Add 1/4 c. flour mixture to skillet. (Although it does not call for it, I usually have to add more butter at this point also.) Stir until smooth. When it begins to bubble, stir in chicken broth and bring to boil. Boil 1 min., then pour over chicken. Cook on high 2-2 1/2 hrs.
