Chicken Broccoli Casserole & a list of Christmas lights in our local area!

The girls are gone, Pepaw is running the vacuum cleaner and I am washing up the school girls cloths and cooking lunch and dinner. For lunch I am using some leftover chicken and making homemade chicken salad, a family favorite. For dinner I am making my "Chicken Broccoli Casserole" and serving it with a baby lettuce salad. The girls love this casserole so I thought it would be just the treat to serve before we go to view the "Lights Under Louisville", and maybe Momma will have some leftovers to serve them later.

We had several special times of singing Christmas carols with the girls. I love, love Christmas music so that was right down my alley.

"Lights Under Louisville" was a lot of fun it was cold and rainy so driving through a cavern looking at Christmas lights was the thing to do. These are special times that we will remember for years to come, I hope the girls do.  For all of you local people I ran across this and it looks like fun too. I plan to check it out when we get home. Clink HERE, then click on the letters over Mississippi and it list the info and driving directions.

Here's the list:
Woodland MS Lights
West Point, Mississippi MS

Check some of them out, it makes for a good family time. Let us know what you think!!!

Baby Joshua got home right before we left for Louisville and after our tour we hurried home to see him again.

Steve and I will be traveling tomorrow! I'm excited about making plans for Christmas with our SMALL family. Our older girls and their families will not be with us and we'll dearly miss them but we'll try to make the best of it until we're able to all be together again!!!

We LOVE ALL our kids from the youngest to the oldest!!!!
