Family Weekend in Texas

We left on Friday to go to Steve's cousin's wedding in Dallas. We had a great weekend and were also able to see some of my family in Dallas. This is my Dad's brother, Jerry and Aunt KK and Jason.

Emily and Aunt KK did some art together.
This is Steve and I before the rehearsal dinner. On the 16th Steve and I celebrated four wonderful years of marriage. I waited a LONG time to get married, but Steve was worth the wait. We have so much fun being together.
This Justin and Cissy. Cissy and Justin really entertained Emily! (Steve's brother and his wife)

The girls before the wedding.
Our family picture before leaving for the wedding. I don't have any wedding pictures because we left our camera in the car and it was valet parking and we could not get to it.

Congratulations on four wonderful, fun-packed years! I can say that next to Kelly finding such a wonderful husband, I was so thrilled that you found Steve!
You girls are both blessed!

The girls' little outfits are darling!

Hey Laurie!! It is Allison (Hill) Worthen. How have you been long lost friend??? I have loved reading about your cute family---those girls are darling! I am amazed at the small world we live in... I saw you on Kelly's blog at the shower for Erin....I was her babysitter when she was much much younger! Man, are we getting old! Email me when you get a chance:
Looks like the trip to Texas was a success. How was the car ride? I am dreading our next trip because someone does not love his carseat so much anymore.

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.
