Our Week of Play

Sarah Kate is showing her two little teeth here.
I don't let SK go in Emily's room because it is not baby proof. E has lots of little toys. She had a very supervised visit the other day. She took a spill while exploring in the toy basket.
It was so warm on Wednesday that we had lots of outdoor play. I don't know what they are looking at. Emily worked hard pulling her sister. Soooo hard, that she took at 3 hour nap.
Some of you bloggers asked Kelly where I got Harper's monkey outfit. It came from Gymboree. I love that store. They have darling clothes. I try to find cute things and wait for them to go on sale. They have good deals.
This is what my friend Kim gave Emily for her birthday. She loves it!

Random question for you -- where did you find the bookcase in Emily's room? I am looking for something similar, but I don't want something very tall -- not more than 35". Yours looks like it might fit my description. Thanks. :)
Love the sunglasses - perfect for Wednesday when it was so beautiful! Miss E does dress up so well.

SK's teeth make for an adorable smile! It just melts the heart....I 'm sure it does for her Daddy!

Emily looks like a starlet with her big sunglasses! They are so cute playing together in their big wagon!

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.
