Whats for Dinner

Tonight we thought we'd put our new Vita Mix blender to work and make dinner. Chicken Spinach Potato Soup! Made mostly from left over food from last week.
it was delicious!!
If your thinking that you haven't heard of this blender, your probably more familiar with it than you think. Its basically the same blender that Jamba Juice and Smoothie King use to make you smoothies. Theirs are just more automated. you can find out more HERE

visiting the great grand parents

Went up to Dale, Tx just out side Austin to visit Matty's Great Grand parents just for a day. While Lei and Helen were busy inside making all kinda Christmas goodies. me and Matty played out side mostly. Matty loved playing in the dried crunchy leaves on the ground and even chewed on the stems of a few. Lei did come out to play a few times.  we all had a great time.

Picking our Christmas Tree

This is probably my favorite thing about being in the mainland. Being able to pick and cut down our own christmas tree.
we had a good ole time together. Helen made some yummie Hot Apple Cider and we bought some peanut brittle from one of the vendors at the farm and had a little picknik.
