Walkie Talkie

This morning Kelly and I took our girls on the new Crystal Bridges museum trail. We had so much fun walking and talking. I am sooooo out of shape and un-athletic. I was huffing and puffing the whole time. We went up some major hills that seemed to stretch for eternity. Sweet Kelly offered to push my girls in the double stroller up one of the stretches. I think Kelly could see I was about to collapse. I pushed baby Harper and it gave me a much lighter load. I let Kelly push my girls because she is so much more fit than I am. I am out of contacts, so I had to walk in my glasses. I was sweating so bad that my glasses were down on the tip of my nose. I know I looked like the wolf posed as granny in Little Red Riding Hood.
Kelly took these precious pictures of our girls. She could be a photographer! I am chomping at the bit to get these pictures in a frame for my house. These little girls make me so happy! You should have heard Kelly and I trying to get the girls to look at the camera. We were acting like goons.
What a wonderful morning!

It made me laugh all that we did to try and get one good picture of those girls. Good thing no one was around to hear us. ha!
I was just as out of shape and out of breath as you were. ha! But I sure enjoyed it!

CUTE dresses on CUTE girls! I miss going on walks--when R was a baby I went on walks about twice a day (to try to get him to fall asleep), but now I haven't figured out a safe way to get out near the road with all three kids! Looks like a fun day!

What fun! Even though I was the youngest of six, I remember my Mom buying me a different matching dress (on sale, of course) with each of my three best friends. As a scrapbooker, I appreciate her thoughtfulness (& the matchy/matchy pictures) to this day!

With my Emily and Sarah, it got to the point where Sarah was wearing the "same" dress for a few years since she also received the hand-me-down one from Emily! =]

God bless - L

I love reading your blog Laurie! It cracks me up because I can read it just as if you were saying it out loud. Also because I canNOT get over the fact how much Sarah Kate looks like my Marlie. Marlie turned 1 on July 9th, so part of it is their age, but the face and THE HAIR! Oh my goodness the hair! It's identical. Ours is just a lil darker. But then I look at this post, and YEP Miss Marlie has the exact same green dress! HA! I love it!

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.
