A Prison and a Party

We have been prisoners in our home for the past couple of days due to ice and snow. I don't think much is going to melt today. Steve is determined to go down to a gas station down the road today. I don't really mind being in, I have gotten a lot done and the girls have taken wonderful naps. They nap better when we don't have a morning outing.
I bought this Spring dress for Emily this week and she wanted to wear it. Notice she found her pearls to go with it!
We have worked puzzles and read books.

We went to one of Emily's best friends party on Thursday. It was really fun and so well organized. It was an art party. Trying to do a group picture was near impossible.

The party was for Alex in the cute apron.

The art party is such a cute idea! I love the pictures of you girls trapped at home. So precious! I have been thinking of all you NWA friends the last few days. I miss the winter weather, but I know ya'll are all probably sick of it!

Your girls are precious, Laurie!

By the way...this goes back to perfumes...I was thinking of you the other day when I was getting so many compliments on my perfume...check it out "Nautica My Voyage". It is fresh and clean. I always spray it onb my hair before I blow dry it and it lasts all day. I have about 5 I use and this one is at the top of the list as an all time classic. Let me know after you test it.

I LOVE Emily's dress. Too precious. We have snow/ice here and I don't mind the prison when we have electric! We are having to use a generator since Thursday.

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.
