Fun and Terror for Emily

We had a nice Thanksgiving in MS. On Saturday we took Emily to Tupelo to see Santa at the mall. I put her in a very precious Christmas dress with a big red bow in her hair. We waited in line for over 30 minutes and wouldn't you know, the minute we get to Santa Emily had a major meltdown. I told Santa to hold her anyway and they took her picture. It is VERY cute. She was screaming 'Mama!" They also had a carousel at the mall and Emily rode it at least six times. She adored it! Steve and I took turns riding with her. It is so fun to let her experience these things.

Complicated

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 good thing, …

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:

Just a Hodge Podge of Stuff

SK LOVES her long locks!  I recently talked her into getting her hair trimmed a little bit!
 My favorite spot of my house is our breakfast room.
 I'm trying to keep these succulants alive!  They lose a leaf each day!  I haven't figured them out yet!
 We visited Steve's parents during Spring Break and ate at a wonderful little joint called The Second Line in Memphis!  I got fried oysters and cheese grits!
