Last night for supper I made Chicken Tortilla Soup by Ree Drummond - The Pioneer Woman Cooks.
It was soo good!!  Be sure to have all the fixings in the center of the table for people to choose from.  We had Pico de Gallo (also from her site), avocado slices, limes, cilantro, and sour cream. Although we fried the corn tortilla slices first and ate them as a side.
This was hit with everyone and and I'll be making it again!

Tonight's supper (since I have fixings left over) I'm making Fish Tacos from Michelle's site Bite By Michelle .  I'll let you know how it turns out.  I'm looking forward to trying it.

Hanlin's 8th Birthday!!

We celebrated Hanlin's 8th birthday last weekend with a Pirate Party!!
It was a huge success!  We started out at the house, where upon arrival each kid was quickly transformed into a Pirate!  We slathered them with Tattoos, earring, eye patch and a sword!!  (Lily took her transformation very seriously, and ran around yelling Argghhh matey!! That is her Argghh pose -  although it looks like she is in pain..lol )
The big sisters made an amazing Treasure Chest Cake and Abigail made a huge map for the table and I used Chinese coins for bits of treasure on the map.
We had cake and opened presents, then headed off to the Movies to watch The Pirates!! Band of Misfits!!  The kids got popcorn, juice and smarties!  They were so excited and soo well behaved!
Lily and her friend never took off their eye patches wearing them under the 3D glasses!  Too Cute!

 It was a great idea for a party.  We were only at the house for 45mins, not enough time to completely destroy the place, and the kids still played outside, ran around, saw a movie, got tatts and piercings!
Good Fun!
