Time in Tulsa

We continue to be amazed at the miracle of Harper. A friend said tonight. "Harper doesn't realize that she is a missionary!" We laughed and talked about how true that is!!!!!!!!!!!! We spent the day with K and S yesterday. We had a great time together.
Here are the missionaries: Kelly and Baby Harper. Doesn't Kelly look great?
Our trip to Tulsa was made possible because of my wonderful parents keeping the girls.

Here is Snow White and sister ballerina.

That is a PRECIOUS picture of your girls.

We're praising God for all His goodness. This last week has been the hardest week and the most amazing week all at the same time.

I love that you let the girls play dress up and enjoy it so...I remember ALWAYS playing and feeling so safe to imagine, make believe, and feel safe to dream and be silly.

you are such a great mom and of course, friend to Kelly! Oh how all your hearts will be happy when you hold that precious gift.
The girls are too cute!

That's great that you were able to go over to spend the day with K & S while the girls enjoyed grandparent time! Kelly does look great!

Your girls are so very cute--love that picture of them together!
Looks like a great day to me! And I bet your parents had a good day too!

Love and prayers! Jenny Beth

HAHA! Sarah Kate and Emily are cute and their dress up clothes. And I don't think SK really cares that she doesn't have a shirt on! Can't wait to see them...and you!

Oh my stars -- those girls of yours are just precious.

Have a Blessed day,

That is THE cutest Snow White and ballerina!

Little Harper, Kelly and Scott have touched SO many lives through their faith. It is truly amazing! I am so glad she has opened her eyes. She is so beautiful, and I think looks just like Kelly!

Laurie...there were many of us together in Atlanta this weekend for a live recording for a CD and DVD by Travis Cottrell....and let me just say...we went on and on about Harper. We all realize how she is being used already for the kingdom of God. He is sooooo good.

I'm so grateful that you and Kelly have one another. Blessings over you and your family.

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.
