Proving it is possible to be tense and lazy at the same time.

I haven't been taking many photos (Sears or otherwise). I haven't been writing about anything. Life is just kind of rolling along.
Becca is really into coloring these days. I bought a big roll of paper at IKEA the other week and it is so fun to just cover the kitchen table in it and let Becca go with the coloring! I guess I need to go out and get some more markers and crayons. We have about four of each.
Playgroup is here tonight. So, I'm whipping up one of my all-time favorite dips and getting ready to have a little fun! (And hoping no errant and wild kids poke any holes in any walls.)
Hot Bacon and Swiss Dip (courtesy of Jean Blair) 8 oz. bacon slices 8 oz. cream cheese, softened (I use light cream cheese) 1 cup mayo (I use light and use a little less than 1 cup) 1 cup shredded swiss cheese 1 bunch green onions, chopped (the entire thing, green and white parts) Butter crackers
Cook bacon until crisp. Crumble. Mix cream cheese, swiss cheese, mayo and green onions together until well combined. Spoon into shallow baking dish. Sprinkle bacon and crushed butter crackers on top. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until heated through.
