Kid Rooms

Not long ago, I did a post on Sarah Kate's nursery. I thought I would focus on Emily's room for this post. This a little glimpse of Sarah Kate's nursery.
Emily's Butterflies above the bed. These came from the hospital gift shop in my home town.
Emily's kitchen that she does not play with too much. But......Sarah Kate LOVES it! It is cabinets and she loves getting into cabinets.
The blue dishes were my Dad's when he was a baby. Notice the doll that Emily marked all over. Discovered this when I took the picture this morning. (I took care of the matter.)
The most useful bow holder that Kelly gave to Emily for Christmas one year. I LOVE it and need another.
This piece of furniture is a flour bin or pie safe that I bought at an antique mall right after I graduated from college with my babysitting money.
Emily sleeps in this little toddler bed.
I painted the butterflies over the bed. This used to be my bed. I bought this right after college as well.
Thanks for taking the tour!

I love all of the pink and butterflies, so perfect for a little girl. I may need to do what you've done with the toddler bed next to the big bed. The bed we got for our 2 year old is REALLY high up, and I'm scared to put her in it so she is still in her crib even though she can climb out when she

I love the room! My Emma's room is pink and green...I'm going to try to get her room cleaned up and pictures taken of it tomorrow! I need to do it so we will remember her nursery...sad to think I've never done it.

Emma won't play with her kitchen either! Frustrates me so much! :) She is more interested in the diaper creams, lotions, and wipes in her room. UGH! :)

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.
