I decided that I better blog today before I get kicked out of the blogging circle. I blog today in a new home. Three weeks ago we moved 30 minutes up the road to be closer to Steve's work and our beloved church and friends. We are really loving it. I miss my old neighborhood and neighbors, but I LOVE my new house and my new space! I also love being so close to church and the activities I am involved in.
I was thinking last night that Steve and I have been through a lot of changes since we got married:
1. We changed churches.
2. We got pregnant 6 months into marriage.
3. I stopped working when Emily was born.
4. Steve started a new job in his company.
5. We made a move to a new house.

That is a lot for two and a half years of marriage. It has all been great changes.

Another change, Emily is walking EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME!!!!!!! She is into everything. I am loving my time right now when she is asleep. But, when she wakes up after a good nap I am always so excited to see her and be with her again and and say "no " a hundred times before bedtime.

A lot has changed in the last 3 or so years! :-) But all for the good!
I'm so glad you now live 3.5 miles from me!

Welcome back to the blogging circle. I really think you should post a description and video of Emily doing the robot. I still laugh every time I think about it.

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.
