Internet Problems

Heather, funny that I have to post a blog entry to have you do a couple things to try and fix our https problem. (for anyone else reading we currently cannot connect to any secure website, which means any website that starts with https, which means no email or anything which requires that you log on)

Brian says to click the start button and on the right side by where the control panel is click 'run' and type "cmd.exe")

a new window will open with a black backround, type "telnet google.com 443" (without the ")
it should say "connecting to google.com..." for a second and then go to a blank screen.

If that doesn't work try typing "telnet google.com 80" and that one should definitely work.

My (latest) favorite recipe

Cheesy Chicken & Rice Casserole

1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1- 1/3 cups water
3/4 cup uncooked, regular long grain rice
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1. Stir soup, water, rice, onion powder, black pepper, and vegetables together. Pour into 8X11" shallow baking dish.
2. Top with chicken. Season chicken as desired. Cover.
3.Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes or until chicken and rice are done. Top with cheese and let casserole stand til cheese melts.

I found this recipe in a magazine and it screamed "easy" and "comfort food" to me. I made it and it was delicious! Talk about an easy meal. Anyways, just thought I would pass on the yummy goodness of this easy recipe.

Valentine's Day

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. Josh and I had a fun date during the day, during Matt's long afternoon nap. We went to the Utah Museum of Fine Art up at the U of U. It was an interesting change of pace from our normal go to dates...fast food and/or a movie. We had lots of yummy treats at our house, thanks to our family for sharing :) Matt's favorite gift was a bunch of balloons Grandma and Grandpa Whitmer brought over. He loved to pull on the string and bounce the balloon off his face. I've never seen someone blink so fast! He was very entertaining to watch, so of course we got it on video for everyone's enjoyment. (Sorry if it is dark)

Big Boy Bath





Matt got a big boy bath tonight and he had a blast. It was Dad's idea (he always comes up with fun new experiences first!). Matt loved slapping the water and got totally soaked. Here are some pictures to show just how much fun bath time can be.
