Baby Harper

Steve and I traveled to Tulsa today to see our precious friends and gorgeous Harper. We had been there about ten minutes when K and S came out of the NICU with tears of JOY! They reported that Harper was greatly improving. He vitals are VERY VERY good! Another blessing to hear this great news first hand. We are convinced it is the prayers of all these wonderful people. Thank you to the many many people who are praying and being the hands and feet of Christ to our friends. WOW! We are witness to a miracle in many ways! Yes, Harper is still critical ,but we have faith that the Lord is going to continue to heal her.
K and S let us go back and see Harper. OHHHHH she is so pretty. I can't wait to hold that darling little miracle.

What a precious little girl. I just wanted to let you know that Tony and I are praying constantly for Harper, Kelly and Scott. We are praying for you also, as I know that Kelly is like your sister, and you are both so close. May God grant you the strength to continue to be such a wonderful support to this precious family during this trial they are experiencing. So thankful Harper's vital signs are better now. Take care, and your two little girls are absolutely precious. I know your parents just love being grandparents to two now!!
God bless,
Amy and Tony Talbert

I have followed your blog for a long time through Kelly's I just haven't commented very much. I just wanted to tell you that I'm praying for little Harper and Kelly and Scott and am looking forward to the day this little one goes home in their arms.

Believing God,
Hi Laurie
I've been praying for Kelly and found out about her situation from Angie Smith's blog which I've been following for about a year. I linked to your blog from Kelly's blog and was so surprised to recognize you as the neighbor that just welcomed us with cookies! I have a blog, too; it is a small world!

Harper is more precious than words. I recently (last weekend) started reading Kelly's blog and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to "know" her and her family & friends. It's so refreshing reading her blogs and seeing the friendships they have with so many. You and your husband/children are such a blessing to Kelly & Scott! God bless you and your family! Prayers are being answered-what an awesome God!!

Lynn from Texas!

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.
