Crock Pot French Onion Soup

As I've said it before, my kid will eat just about anything, he's never been a picky eater.  French onion soup is one of his favorites.  Since we got the call last night from his school that today would be a snow day I decided to make this for him last night to enjoy today (ya know, before I send him out to shovel my car out of the snow, lol)
