Hello Dear Carrie,
What an absolutely beautiful baby, and what a beautiful picture of you and Boston. Carrie you are in for the most wonderful ride of your life, having grandchildren in your life is the icing on the cake in this wonderful life that God has blessed us to have and share. May you have many wonderful days with him.

This soup sounds like one that we would enjoy, our Christmas eve is usually quiet, we have oyster stew,listen to carols,and so enjoy it. But I guess we will have to have ours on the 23rd this year, as we will have company for dinner this year, about 15 guests. Quite a I am so looking forward to having family here.

Take lots of pictures of Boston often as he will change everyday.

Thank you for your concern,but most of all for your prayers, I am feeling so much better.

That sounds really good. I"m copying it and I'm going to try it this week. I was going to make potato chowder any way this week.

Yum that soup looks great. I have potato soup simming right now. About to eat lunch. I want to try this one though. Sounds great.
I wanted say congratulations on your new grandbaby. I noticed the swaddle blanket. They are wonderful. My gbaby slept in his till he was over a year old. He just loved being in it. We quit putting his legs in though. Just having his arms wrapped made him comfy. He is 18 months now and still loves rocking and humming. I hum Jesus Loves me and even when he is fuzzy,cranky or mad (because he can't have something) he settles down and listens and puts his ear up to my face to hear me humming. I know you will have some wonderful memories like these. Congrats again and Merry Christmas.

Beautiful baby!!
On the soup, don't add the salt until the very end if it needs it at all. This recipe is very similar to mine and sometimes the ham takes care of the salt. I sometimes add some corn as well. I'm too lazy to dice my carrots, so I use the shredder and set it to fine shred.

your little grand baby is getting
cuter by the minute!!!! :)

Love~ Miss Jen

This soup is SO GOOD! We are having it tonight! I didn't have any ham on hand, so I used about a tablespoon of bacon drippings and more cheese- YUM! Thanks for posting! Congratulations on becoming a Grammy :) Boston is a beautiful baby. BTW- your BBQ meatball recipe was a winner! Merry Christmas!

Hi Carrie, Merry Hope You Had Nice Christmas and a Wonderful New Year 2014! Thank you for the Christmas Jelly recipe, it was wonderful. I don't usually save a jar out for us to try; usually given as gifts, this year with homemade biscuits from Prudent Homemaker and some with pear jam. Again Thank You and God Bless you and your family for a healthy, joyful prosperous New Year!!! Sandy
