Emily Found Her Some Make-Up!

Last night Steve and I were very into American Idol and Emily was out of the room and VERY quiet. I told Steve that she was probably up to no good. When she is REALLY quiet for a long time it is usually not good. I told Steve to go find her. He found her in our bed with my make-up bag. He called me in there and I thought she had swallow poison or marked on our duvet with a Sharpie or something because of his reaction. I fell out laughing when I saw her. Steve picked her up and took her to the mirror to show her the work she had done. Her face was the exact same reaction that Kelly and I had several years ago when we got complimentary make-overs/facials at the mall. We were horrified when we saw ourselves in the mirror. It looked like they were trying to get rid of all their non-selling colors. Well, it looked like a two year old had done our faces. This is the dazed look Emily had when she saw herself. She stared for a LONG time and then pushed her hair out of her face and said in her most mono-tone, weak voice, "I painted my face" Yes she did! I don't think it was the look she was going for. I'll teach you later on Emily!

I love those pictures. I love that even at 2, she could tell it didn't look right! It looks like she gave herself whiskers to be a cat.

Love this! My niece loves to find my make-up bag when she visits. Once she put make-up on Rhett! So I've started hiding my make-up when she comes over.

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.
