Our House This Weekend

I am so thankful for the continued improvements with Harper. I feel I can "breath easy" now. She looks so beautiful and healthy. I can't wait to get my hands on her!

Sarah Kate is getting ready to crawl. She is doing that "rocking" now and can go from laying down to sitting up by herself.
Friday night, we had Josh and Hillary spend the night with us. They went to Tulsa this morning to visit the Stamps. We had a wonderful time with them. Emily sang and danced for them while we ate. It was like a dinner theater. We want them to come back soon!
They brought E these darling butterfly wings, skirt, shoes, jewels. and candy. Emily LOVES it! She even napped in the shoes today.
This is Emily making her angry face. She is soo very funny. We have not had t.v. for the past couple of days and I have been pretty miserable without it. Emily has told me several times that the t.v needed batteries. I wish it were that easy.
Here is a little hello from Sarah Kate.

I know I've told you this before, but your girls are adorable! Laurie, you are such a wonderful friend to Kelly. You make me miss my best friend (since kindegarten) so much! She lives in Tulsa, now. Is that too funny or what?

How fun! I cannot believe how much Sarah Kate has grown. I feel like all the sudden she looks like a little girl instead of a baby! Emily is just so cute, too! I know you have a lot of fun with your girls!

Your girls are so precious!!! Who needs TV when you have an entertainer in the family!!!
I can't believe SK is already about to crawl! How exciting. Emily makes me laugh so much. Remember that day we were taking pictures of her smiling big and smiling small? I laugh out loud every time I look at them. I need to send those to you.

I noticed SK looking like she might crawl today in nursery! She's going to crawl before John Michael. She's getting so big!
Kelly said…
Wish I could have been there for dinner theater! I miss all 4 of you so much!

Hi Laurie,
I have been following Kelly's blog and don't want to bother her, so I thought maybe you could help me. Do you know if their mailing address is the same now that they are in the Children's Hospital?
Thanks so much...your girls are darling!

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.
