The Weekend

This past weekend I had my college friend, Kim come and visit. Kim is one of the most kind and wise people I have ever known. She could also be a professional comedian. She is so funny. I just look at her and start laughing. Kim has a foster baby right now who is the same age as Sarah Kate. It was so fun to have another baby in the house. I busted out this Bumbo seat for the babies this weekend. I love it and so does Sarah Kate. She looks like a little woman sitting in it.
Sarah Kate was 3 months on Sunday so I took the girls to get their pictures made yesterday. I was pretty pleased with how they turned out. I just had to share this black and white. It was the best!

I loved SK sitting in the bumbo - she looked so grown up - she probably felt grown up!

That B&W portrait of the girls is perfect--I love it!

Alexee liked her Bumbo seat, too--it was a big help for a while until she figured out how to wiggle out of it.
I'm so glad you posted the B&W is ADORABLE!!!

It excites me to hear that you have a friend with a foster baby! Is this her first placement or has she fostered other children. I am always on the lookout for other really good foster parents! (: looks like Sarah Kate has the same crib as D. I LOVE it!!! My husband's sister gave it to us when she was finished using it with her two children. There are pictures of it on my recent post about the nursery makeover that took place in our house. (:

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.
