Easy Cheesy Bacon Rounds

Yesterday was amazing,actually this past week was incredible! it was hectic as usual, with the kids and their activities. Both kids are in dance, my daughter is in tap and ballet, and my son recently tried out for hip hop and he loved it so there is our Monday nights and then on Tuesday nights we have boy scouts meetings and of course school but all in all it was fantastic. Yesterday we went to Sweet Frogs which is a frozen yogurt place by us, this is where I take the kids every Friday,  that's of course they do not have any behavior issues in school for that (and yes I bribe them with that! :) and it works!).  Anyhow, last night we had family movie night we watched the movie Epic and my husband was the only one who lasted through it!  the baby was already fast asleep before the movie, so he only had to carry my daughter ,son and me to bed! he said that he looked over and Jasmine and I were in a cocoon on the couch together snuggling and my son was snuggling with pups.  But then this morning we all committed that we would finish it and quite frankly we just haven't been able to get around to it yet.  For family movie night I wanted to make a really yummy snack for us and I made these yummy cheesy bacon rounds, so if you like potato skins you are gonna love these and the best part it really doesn't take a lot of work like regular potato skins, because they cook in about 30-40 minutes!  From my kitchen to your's Happy Eating!
