Another Visit

My parents came last week for a visit and my Dad took this picture of me and Emily. I thought it was good! We are to the point of getting some little pig tails now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Her hair is growing slowly , but surely!
Last week, we had a visit from Steve's family in North Mississippi. This is Uncle Clark, Aunt Miriam, and their twin daughters, Allison and Angela. These two sweet girls have been to every state except, North Dakota. But they can mark that state off, because they went there last week and stopped by our house on the way home. We had a great time visiting. They are just easy to be around.

Sarah Kate at 13 months. She is starting to say lots of words these days.
The two happy sisters.

Hello. My name is Brittany and I have followed Kellys blog for a while now, and have been reading yours recently. I think your family is precious and your girls so so sweet. You seem like such a wonderful mom. There was something about your "Singleness" post that I just kept thinking about. I could stop laughing when you made that coment about the chips and salsa. I kept thinking about that and it just made me laugh.Anyways, nice (sort of) meeting you.

Have you noticed how many people in the blog world seem to have that same couch/loveseat combo? I notice it because I have it too! It just cracks me up. I guess we all have good taste. :)

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.
