Wonderful Easter!

We have had a great weekend. We have been very busy, but have also had some time to relax. We had Evangalist, Junior Hill at our church this morning. There were lots of people saved!!!!!! What a wonderful Easter to see all these people walking the aisle and giving their lives to the Lord!
Look who came to see us today! Harper, the miracle baby! I got to hold her for a little bit and I was delighted. She is a pretty baby girl! We also enjoyed our time with Kelly and Scott. Our friends, Hillary and Josh, came to see us on Saturday from Little Rock. They are a lot of fun!

SK looks like she should be in the wagon on Little House on the Prairie.

We got a new kitchen table last week. We are enjoying it!

I loved getting to see you!!! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Please let Emily come see me every few months so I can laugh like that.
SK does look like Kari on Little House on the Prairie. :)
I know you were so glad to finally get to hold baby Harper!!! The girls looked beautiful for Easter.

We loved our time with you!!! We always laugh a lot with you and Steve but Emily has taken it to a whole new level.
I'm going to think about her dancing and that fishtail and bust out laughing all week.

Seriously, Laurie, your family is precious! I've really loved getting to learn and know about your family through Kelly's blog and love keeping up with your sweet girls. If I lived near ya'll, I would sooooo baby-sit!!! You could always send them down to Florida if you need a break, haha!! Parents need that every now and then and they would have a blast at Disney World, lol. Have a GREAT day!!! :o)

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.
