The Mullet Cutting

Since the first time we ever saw baby Emily she had a rat tail. As she has grown and her hair has grown , it has become an all out mullet. Only a mother's love can love that little mullet on my precious daughter. It has actually really entertained Steve and I thinking that, " our daughter has a mullet." It is just the way her hair grows. Bless her heart. Last Thursday night I decided to cut the mullet. It had began to cause her problems when I would take a bib off and accidently pull her hair in the bib's velcro. She would scream and cry in protest. As I looked at her last Thursday morning, I thought," there is no reason for her to have her hair this way. I am going to cut it when Steve gets home." Of course, Steve did not object. I wet her hair down and in one chop got the mullet. I was a little nervous to see it at first. I rushed her to the bath for a good hair washing and styling and it looked great! I was so glad I cut it! It stills comes to a point, but she is a much more refined looking baby girl now! I will get some pictures on here soon so you can see before and after photos.

She's the only beautiful baby I know who could pull a mullet off and make it look great! Did you save the lock of hair from her rat tail for her scrapbook?

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.
