She's Waited a Long Time

It has nearly been a year since Emily cut her hair. It is finally to the stage that she can have pigtails again. She is oh so proud of them. She looks in the mirror all the time. In the top picture she was saying,"ruff ruff." She was pretending to be a dog with her dog ears. As she always says,"my hair is really growing up!"
I also painted her nails for the first time. She shows everyone she meets.

Has it really been a whole year since Emily cut her hair? Whew! The time has flown by...it feels like that was just a few months ago.

None the less - she is just precious with her dog ears!

Ella Grace gave herself a sideburn not too long ago. I thought about you! I don't think that thing is ever going to grow out. Emily looks so cute in her dog ears!!!
Nothing is cuter than a set of pigtails on a little girl! I love it and still do it to my 3rd grader! She loves them too!

I'm friends with Mary Avery and her mom, another gal from Alabama, and I saw the picture of you holding Matthew at Bunco....seriously....as I told her in the comments, you had your arms completely FULL!! :)

Complicated

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 chu

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.
