Our home has been pretty boring for the past couple of days. We have had lots of guest and now they are all gone and it is kinda sad. My college friend, Kim came last weekend. We always have so much fun together. Kim is so funny and FUN!!!!!!!!! I am always smiling when she is around. We ate lots of good food last weekend. Then on Monday my lifelong friend, Kelly and her children came to visit. Emily loved being with Logan and Lauren. She was royally entertained. Kelly and I also had lots of good food and fun shopping together. Kelly always has such good taste in food and stores. She introduced me to Bath Junkie. It was fun to look and smell, but SOOOOOOO expensive. I bought a little candle there. Money up in smoke! Kelly and I had such a great time together. Kelly can make anything fun! I was so thankful that these two wonderful friends could come see us! I can be myself with these girls. We will always be close.
Emily has been singing a lot latley. She is just a happy little girl. She tries to sing her ABC's. It is precious. She also loves stuffed animals these days. She tries to feed them. She gets one of her purses and carries it on her arm with a stuffed animal in her hand and says "bye bye" as she walks to the door. Emily is so much fun! I love her more than I can imagine.

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.
