Yummy Hamburger Soup

My friend Claudia made this soup for me when we first brought our new little guy home from the hospital! ILOVE IT!!

So when I woke up this morning and saw the rain that should turn to snow I decided its a soup day!

Hamburger soup

Brown 1 lb Hamburger (or ground turkey)
Put hamburger in bottom of crockpot
Peel and cube 5 or 6 potatoes
Add celery (optional)
Dump potatoes and carrots on top of meat
Mix 2 cans cream of something-mushroom, chicken, ect.
1 envelope dry Beefy Onion Soup mix
Spread creamed mixture over the top of veggies
Pour HOT water slowly down the edge until water is visible on top (2-3 cups)
Cook covered in crock pot on high heat
After 1 hour, stir, Cook 5-6 hours until potatoes are tender
Can also cook in covered pot in oven on low heat for about 3 hours!

Its yummy! Enjoy this nice fall/snowy/rainy day!!

My Family Blocks

I have had these letter blocks FOREVER!! I just had them sitting in this exact spot just painted! I had finally had enough and NEEDED to craft! So when the kids went down for a nap, I finally started to do something creative! Here is my version of the family blocks! I know everyone has these and has shown them, but I am proud of them because its my first craft in sooooo long! I am LOVING the lime green! I wish I could redo an entire room this color...someday!
