Baby Showers and Blessings

This morning, I was listening to one of my favorite Travis Cottrell cds. It is a live recording and on the first song he starts it off by saying, "Let's Give the Lord some praise today!" I thought, "well AMEN!" I am praising him today for bringing Harper home! What a work the LORD has done. I am so thankful the Lord Jesus turned that situation around and MANY great things have come out of it.
I had a baby shower at my house last night for a church friend, Robin, who is due in 4 weeks. We had a great turnout. I am so thankful for our church family. It is filled with people full of integrity. We are so blessed to have a growing Sunday school class. I am so thankful for the new friends I have met in the past few months.
I have a friend who is 27 weeks pregnant with twins. She has already began having contractions. Join me in praying that she can wait a few more weeks to meet her girls.
One more thing. I had to go and get a few things at some stores today and it seems that every stores asks you for your phone number, address, email, etc. It just drives me NUTS. I just want to purchase things in peace. Okay, just had to get that off my chest!

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.
