First REAL Haircut

This week Emily got her first real haircut. I had cut her little mullet about a year ago. She just needed the back of it shaped up a little. I was so glad we did it. Emily's hair is fine and thin, like mine. My hair is just fizzle dust. I pray Emily's hair will get thicker. She was VERY VERY good during the haircut. I think the sucker is what did the magic.
Emily also had one of her favorite friends over to play this week. They are playing hide and seek in the closet. They thought this was so funny!

Fizzle dust? HAHAHA!!! I'm so proud of Em for doing good for her hair cut! It could have been disaster! She and her friend (Reese, isn't it?) are so cute!!!
I'm sad you won't be able to join Kelly and I on Sat. Have fun in C!

I was wondering how the hair cut went! I'm glad it went so well and I'm sure it looks super cute!
Emily and Reese are adorable together!

How cute! Hair cuts can be tricky. I'll have to remember the sucker trick. I can't wait for play dates for Ella Grace!

She's so cute in the chair for her hair cut! I like taking Rhett to get his hair cut--I think he looks so big in the chair, and he always carries on funny conversations with Debbie as she cuts. He constantly asks her to put more powder on his neck because he's itching and asks to play with the clippers, etc. I think Alexee is going to need a trim before long--she's approaching a mullet!

How cute that she sat still for her first haircut! We have a mullet now and I just don't know what to do. Ella will be 2 in March and has never had a haircut/trim or anything! Her hair is very short on top and the sides and long in the back, but she has tons of curls that I just don't want to cut off!
I ordered her the kitchen today like ya'll have! I'm glad I saw your pictures so I could ask you about it. Hopefully she will like it. :)

Emily looks like a big girl sitting in the beauty shop chair! When the new baby comes, Emily will really seem like a big sister! She will probably be lots of help with baby sister! So sweet!

What a big girl! You were smart to bribe her with candy--it's good the first hair cut was a good experience to set the precedence for next time. Your hair always looks cute--what is fizzle dust??

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 chu

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.
