Emily Facts

Over the weekend I got Emily some new shoes. She loves them! In fact, she slept in them Sat night. I had a Dr appt. today and my sweet neighbor kept Emily. The Dr gave me an antibiotic for this mess I have. I sure hope this is the last of the cold/sinus infections.
Here are some Emily facts:
1. Everyday when she wakes up, she says,"Daddy at work." That is the very first thing she says.
2. She wants a spoon or fork for EVERYTHING she eats. She wanted a spoon tonight to eat chips. She put each chip on the spoon and ate them that way.
3. She LOVES to flush the toilet and she says,"I close the door, Mama." That is what she says as she reaches for the lever to flush.
4. The bath water must run the entire time she is in the tub. Turning off the water is a major tragedy to her.
5. She loves to put on a bow or perfume or my shoes and say, "I pretty Mama!"
6. She is constantly trying to get her babies to go night night and many times she will come to Steve or me and put her little finger over her mouth and say, Shhhhhhhhh. She has picked that up because we are always trying to get her to go night night.

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.
