Weekend Visitors

This weekend, we had one of my dear friends, Kelly, come and visit from Little Rock. Kelly brought her seven year old daughter. Lauren. This was a special treat for Emily, since she loves hanging out with older girls. I let the girls sleep together in Emily's big bed. We have continued with Emily sleeping in the big bed since Lauren went home. Emily is always saying, " I a big girl!" This bed is extremely high and I pray every night that E will not fall out. So far, so good!
Kelly and I have been friends for 35 years.

Such cute pictures of the girls together! I know it was so fun!

I have been meaning to tell you that I showed my MIL your built-ins that you had repainted in your living room and suggested she do that to her's because they were very similar. She had them painted about 2 weeks ago and LOVES them. They look really good! Her living room color is similar to yours so I knew it would look great! Thanks for sharing the make over!

That was probably the best thing for Emily that a "BIG GIRL" got to sleep with her in her big bed! Now it's the thing to do!!

Lauren and Emily look so cute together!

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.
