Calm After the Storm

We have had a very eventful past few days. Emily went to the E.R. last weekend for constipation and an ear infection and upper respiratory infection. Then we got a ticket for our car tags being expired, then to top it all off, Steve had a wreck. WOW! We only have one car now. We are praying that God will lead us to the perfect car for us. Emily is doing just fine now. In fact, she had a good day in the nursery yesterday. That is always a blessing.
Steve went to the Razorback game at Auburn. I am so glad he got to go to that game. He had a wonderful time.
I got Emily a Halloween costume. She is going to be a cowgirl. It is really precious. I had gotten her a bee costume, but I decided it was too short for her. She couldn't stretch her legs out. So, I took it back.
This week I am planning to do some cleaning. There are lots of things we need to get rid of. I also have to clean because our parents are coming this weekend. Steve and I are going to Branson for our two year anniversary.

I can't believe it's already been 2 years since you got married. Seems like just yesterday was your wedding but it also seems like ya'll have been married a long time too. I'm sure you know what I mean!

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.
