Spring

The girls had Spring/Easter pictures made this week. I am soooo pleased with how they turned out. Emily was so scared of the baby chicks that she was almost miserable. Notice she is pulling her feet up in this picture.



We had a wonderful playgroup at my friend Tracey's house. She is a great hostess and always so organized. We had an egg hunt. My Dad took this picture before we left this morning. My parents are here with us this week and are staying here for Easter. We love when they come to see us!
Kelly got this cake for my Birthday. Isn't it sooooo very cute? It tasted really good too. Kelly was sooo thoughtful to do this! I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sarah Kate would pick up every egg Harper was trying to get. Sarah Kate refused to let go of her baby for the egg hunt.
My Mom did Emily's hair the other night and I had to take some pictures of it. Emily was so proud.

Steve gave me THE BIGGEST surprise of my life today. He had a new coffee table and end tables delivered this afternoon. I told the delivery guy that he had the WRONG person and house. My mother had to convince me to let the guys bring it in. I love it! Steve did so good and he REALLY surprised me! I have been smiling all afternoon!

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.
