This Week at Our House

One of my best and lifelong friends, Kelly, came to see me this week. We had a great visit and I loved introducing Sarah Kate to her. Kelly is so good with babies.
Here is Emily doing her ballet. She loves to sing and dance.Today Sarah Kate got dressed up for a little outing to a friends house. I love her tiny shoes.
I have a picture very similar to this one that was made when Emily was the same age. Emily was skinny, Sarah Kate is a "filled out" baby.

We have been so blessed to have our Sunday School and our neighborhood do meals for us. They have been soooooooooooooo good! Steve and I are going to have another baby just so we can get the nice meals. It has been so nice not to have to worry about cooking.

First of all, you don't even look like you just had a baby! I wished I would have known your secret! Is Emily taking dance? I am anxious to get Ella Grace in dance! That will be so fun. Sarah Kate is beautiful. I love her little outfit and of course those shoes! Meals are definitely a blessing when you have a baby. Thank goodness for all those that are willing to serve! Yeah!

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.
