When Emily was so sick recently we did something I said I would NEVER do, WE LET HER SLEEP WITH US! I got NO sleep because I was so afraid we would roll over on her. Emily was so happy to be in the bed with us. She would smile and say,"Hi Mama!' "Hi Daddy!" This went on for quite a while till she would finally go to sleep. After her illness, we got her back to her crib. Now, when I can't find her, I go to our bedroom and find her on my pillow lying in the dark. She pats beside her and says, "Come night night Mama." She does this several times a day. I think she just likes remembering sleeping with us and how much it comforted her. Our bed IS very comfortable and cozy. She sleeps in a flat, hard, pillow-less crib. Who could blame her?

How sweet! I always said my babies wouldn't be in the bed with us either, but now my 15-month-old still sleeps with us! I have got to get her in her crib! Emily is sooo cute!

Oh that's funny! Good habit not to get in, I guess :) Isn't it funny how all it takes is one time for her to remember??

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.
