My Birthday Girl

Emily turned 3 on Dec 29th. That just seems unreal to me! We had her party last Saturday. We invited the church playgroup kids her age and a couple of the neighbors that she plays with most. It was a good little party. The theme was Tinkerbelle. This is Julie, Lauren, Reese and June.
We put all the partying kids on the couch for a picture.
Aunt Kelly and Uncle Scott gave E this Snow White outfit. She loves it! She had to put it on while the guests were still here.
Kelly and Scott. Two of our favorite people in the world!!!!!!!!! We are anxiously awaiting the birth of Harper!
Baby sister at the party. She had as good a time as anyone.
Steve with Emily's Tinkerbell cake. It was really good. Wal-Mart does good cakes.
My Daddy with the party girl. Both sets of parents came for the party. Steve and I went on a date Sat afternoon to see Marley and Me. OHHHHH sooooooo GOOD! It was very real to life! We have the worst cat in the world, so we could relate to Marley.

Sarah Kate had her 6 month check-up and shots last week. She weighs 17 lbs and 4 oz. She is in the 75th percentile in height, weight and head. AND.......she is NO LONGER sleeping through the night. YIKES!

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.
