Pretty sure that the Bubonic Plague has hit the Hicks household. Mike had it Tuesday-Saturday-ish and I got hit hard yesterday, poor Brent I think has had it since Friday, and Blake has slept for probably 1/2 the day today. It's the weirdest thing, We feel okay in the morning, and then like death come early afternoon. This morning we had these for breakfast.


Pretty tasty if you ask me. { I mean, Anything rolled in butter is good right?} Well, it was for the 10 minutes I kept it down. I'm not sure what I was thinking eating cinnamon and butter on a sick stomach... 
Our poor kids, Brent has been a terror. He's teething and I'm pretty sure he has this bug, So he has been screaming nonstop. And not sleeping through the night. Neither of our parents could come to the rescue today either... Thank heavens for the greatest friends and home teacher, They brought us dinner without being asked. Seriously an answer to a prayer. I couldn't even move from my bed to the couch without being exhausted. And Mike can't cook anything. No, really, Unless it's a frozen pizza and even then he has to ask me what to turn the oven to and how long it cooks for. {Even though it's on the box}
The house is disastrous, The laundry is in piles as tall as mountains... I hate being sick. Trying to catch up from the days of doing nothing is going to be terrible. I have at least 6 loads of laundry and a good few hours of cleaning. It's not happening for a while though, let's be honest. 
It was however, Really nice to just stay home and cuddle with all these babies in our bed. Watching Disney movies and taking naps. 
The house is coming along... still slow.... And always with a wrench in the plan. Now we are going to have to design the laundry room after we move in because the supplier doesn't carry the sink and faucet I want. Really? It's a galvanized bucket sweet cheeks. I could probably find one on the side of the road. Oh well. Just gives me more time to find more ideas right?!
Obviously this sickness has thrown off our summer scheduel... But the important things are still getting done and being taught. Hanging out with babies, and Blake and LaLa are doing fabulous with this pre school curriculum... And these sight word flash cards.
I'm hoping to have him reading by himself by the summers end. I'm pretty sure he could do it now, But the kid is so dang lazy. Any who, As soon as the plague has cleared, I'll get back to the exciting and productive posts. I started a project 4 days ago and still haven't finished it. {SO not like me!}

Crock pot chicken cordon bleu

Oh boy oh boy, Do I have a recipe for you to try! 
I don't know why But I cant find the page that this is linked to!~ Oh NO! It's from chef in training.


  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 ounces sliced ham
  • 4 ounces sliced Swiss cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) package herbed dry bread stuffing mix
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


  1. Mix together the cream of chicken soup and milk in a small bowl. Pour enough of the soup into a slow cooker to cover the bottom. Layer chicken breasts over the sauce. Cover with slices of ham and then Swiss cheese. Pour the remaining soup over the layers, stirring a little to distribute between layers. Sprinkle the stuffing on top, and drizzle butter over stuffing. Cover, and cook on Low for 4 to 6 hours, or 2 to 3 hours on High. 
HEAVENS TO BETSY IT"S GOOOOD! We had it last night, I made it organic using a few of my favorites... 
 I cut the ham (Canadian bacon) into small pieces, Just so it was easier for the kiddos to eat. Holy moly, I think I could have eaten the whole pot!

the turtle

mike and I were on our was out, the kids with granny gar and grandpa mike, and not even around the corner of our street and mike slams on the brakes! theres a turtle, lets go catcb it! so mike got out i drove the car home and we now had a pet turtle! only for a few hours though! im not a fan they are germy little critters so i was freaking out ! "dont let blake touch it, wash your hands with hot soapy water,not just hand sanitizer that doesnt get all the germs off!" maybe i over reacted but id rather be safe than sorry! we let the little bugger go at mikes grandmas lake that afternoon, so he could have a buffet of fish! and not just die in our backyard!
