All Dressed Up

Kelly has really inspired me with her cute hats and flowers. I got this hat for SK this week and it lasted on her head for one second. It was a game for her to see how fast she could pull it off and laugh. is now for big sister. I put it on Emily and she said,"MOOOOMMMMM, this hat is soooo silly." This a swimmer's hat, Mom?" Then it started growing on her and she went to the mirror over and over. It made her do a little dance.
I got this baby girl a flower head band. It lasted 3 seconds for this one picture! She is 9 months old today.

Here is Emily in my ballerina dress that I had for a play when I was three years old. Emily loves wearing it. Those shoes are about two sizes too small, but she doesn't care.
E went to a Princess birthday party for her friend Summer this morning. It was a wonderful party! Here are a few pics of the little darlings.
Emily with Summer.
I had the neat opportunity to meet a blogger friend, Kate, with Kelly today. We also got to meet Kate's Mom and friend. It was so fun! I love people that are entertaining and funny. Those words would describe Kate.

I LOVE the hats and flower bands!!!!!!!
But mostly I just love those girls. Emily is adorable in these pictures and I loved seeing SK in the flesh today!!! She had gotten 100 times prettier since the last time I saw her.
I can't say enough how much I miss your girls. It makes my heart hurt not to see them and kiss them. SOON! VERY SOON!

Wow, I've been reading your blog for a little while and I never realized how much Sarah Kate looks like her daddy until that picture of the three of them on the couch!

I LOVE IT! The hats and headbands are so adorable on both girls! Kinley has now learned how to rip her headband off too. How fun the princess party looked! Makes me reminisce about playing dress up and look forward to seeing K dress up.

Oh my!!! How much cuter can your girls get Laurie??? They are soooooo precious!!!! Happy Monday!!! :o)
My daughter won't keep a headband, bow, or hat on either! I've been trying for ten months (she's now 14months old). I was sooo sure I could do those fun, girly things after having two boys. Oh well! At least it's cheaper now because I've stopped even buying anything for her head! I still want to do a playdate, but we had rotovirus at our house, so I didn't get back to you to set up a date. Maybe the week after spring break, once my school age child is back in school? I'll call you.

I have seen so many pretty little girls in their princess costumes!! I love the dress up!!
Hi Laurie! I just have to ask you...did you go to Ouachita anytime from 1990-1992? You look so familiar to me! I was Kim McCarty then. I saw your picture on Kellys Korner (several of my friends have told me about her blog & I'm new at this). I hope you don't think I'm a crazy loon but I just wondered. :) Kim

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.
