Kids cook {bubble up pizza}

Now that the kids are getting older it is time for me to let them help out more with cooking and baking! 

 found the recipe for Bubble up Pizza over at The Country Cook through Pinterest.
This recipe was super easy and Jordan {8 years old} was able to make this completely on his own. 

What you need:
• 1 pound Italian sausage
• 1 (15 oz.) jar pizza sauce 
• 1 tube (12 oz.) refrigerated Pillsbury      Grands Jr. Biscuits
• 2 cups mozzarella cheese
• pepperoni slices 

• preheat oven to 375 degrees
• spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
• brown and crumble Italian sausage and drain any excess grease. I skipped this step by using leftover homemade spaghetti sauce with sausage from the day before. 
• cut biscuits into fourths or eighths depending on size you want. 

• in a bowl, combine pizza sauce with cut up biscuits and cooked sausage. Stir to combine.

• spread mixture evenly into prepared baking dish.

• then top with shredded cheese and sliced pepperoni. 

• bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes and until biscuits are cooked through. 

• then serve and enjoy!

Las Vegas Vacation

In the middle of September Josh and I took a ten day trip to Vegas,
The first five days were spent in a house with Josh's softball team.
They were playing in the world's tournament here.
They ended up going 3-2 and took 33rd place.

Friday night we took a group trip to the strip.
A couple people went to a show and the rest of us went
dancing. That was a ton of fun.

On Sunday it was our 7 year anniversary!
We went to the strip with a group from the team to watch
the Seahawks game. Afterwards Josh and I went and watched
Afterwards we went and tried Pho for the first time.

Monday most people went home.
We moved over to strip for five more days.
Joel and Christine also came for a few days and 
Josh's friend from the team came for an extra day.
We stayed at the MGM signature which are condos!
It was so nice having a kitchen to cook food and a jetted
tub to relax in! We had Safeway delivery food so we didn't
have to hassle with that!

We spent a lot of time out by the lazy river pool
at the MGM. On Tuesday night we went to dinner
with Joel and Christine at the Rainforest Cafe. We then 
went to a Comedy show. In the five day we were there
we never did leave our hotel. We have been here enough times
now we don't feel the need to walk around much.

Here are some pictures random pictures I took over the five days.
I took a lot selfies with no kids around to photograph.
