Baby Play Day

Yesterday was our Baby Play/Reading Time. We went to Ginger's house. She really went all out for us. She read two pumpkin stories, did an art project, made Pumpkin shaped Rice Krispy treats and had pizza. It was one of our best times ever. Thanks Ginger for all your hard work! For the art project, our babies dipped their precious feet in white paint and printed them on a black paper. The papers were then turned upside down and given ghost faces. They are darling. I will keep Emily's forever. Emily loved chewing on the stem of her pumpkin and looking at their dog out the patio window. I love getting together with these other Moms and babies. It is ALWAYS fun!
My friend Beth is coming Sat to visit. She lives in Tulsa. Her husband, Joey and baby, Baylor are coming too. Steve and Joey are going to the Razorback game. Beth and I will have so much fun. I have lots to show her and tell her. We are taking our babies to a pumking patch and taking their piuctures. I can't wait! In the morning, I am going to eat with Hillary and Kelly. I love being with them. I wish Megan could be with us too.
Well, I need to get busy cleaning the house for Beth. She has the nicest, cleanest, neatest house that I have ever seen.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
