Slow cooker freezer meals

If you follow us on IG, you saw the post about HG and I preparing tons of meals . As of today, it is up to 36 meals whether lunch or dinner, they are ready to go. Well, probably will be 35 by the end of the day because I a feeling like I've been hit by a truck again.  I love Sprouts and their healthy selections of meats. If you watch for their sales, it is a win-win situation and HG loves all their chicken sausage in the fresh market.  That teamed up with a over flowing buggy from Kroger allowed us to prepare for his arrival. The meals should last us a good while, thank goodness. I know we won't eat one daily with family in town, Taco Tuesday and I'm sure a much needed pizza night.  HG helped until she got bored or worked up and began coughing. I shooed her out of the kitchen quickly when that began allowing her to have Disney Jr time. Harper, she refused to nap but was so good the majority of the day. She was really into Blue's clues yesterday and screaming at the TV. It was a hoot. She knows the clues and wants Steve to see see, right next to him.

Cousin Laura gave this to Harper filled with Melissa and Dough stuff.
It is awesome and very kid friendly, she is the best.
Many people forget that kids can be rough on stuff, and thick plastic can be perfect.
I spy Brobee.
HG sleeping in this morning on her last morning before school begins again.
What a Christmas Holiday this year, praying next year will be better so we can come visit after Christmas.
Harper being silly.
HG gets to celebrate her 1/2 birthday at school on Thursday with a chocolate donut party.
I love that her teachers do this since she has a summer birthday and we are planning to move before July.
