Welcome Spring!

I decided last week that GREEN is my favorite color. I LOVE seeing all of the beautiful green leaves on the trees. It adds so much beauty. I was more than ready for this past winter to end. I could probably get several amens on that! I enjoyed a day outside with the girls on Saturday. We got some flowers and planted them in our planters.
I thought getting a car for Emily this past birthday would be fun and easy for her drive. ha! We took it out through the neighborhood a couple of months ago and she was crying and I was yelling. She does not know how to steer. We were both beyond frustration. I ended up pushing the car home that day. She is doing a little better now and I know that will continue.
Emily went in and put on these boots to plant the flowers. Good idea Emily!
This is Sarah Kate's trademark.........a baby under one arm. She was fussing here because I took her cissy out for the picture.

Emily is hearing so much better. The running bath water is VERY loud to her and so is getting ice out of the fridge door.

Hehe I love that little car! It's so cute!

Glad Emily's hearing has improved! It's funny how sometimes you don't realise how much you're missing out on until it you have it back again! :)

The dresses are darling and I'm totally with you on green! I surprised myself by using a lot of it in my house.
Those dresses are darling! Bring those girls here to the "country" on our farm--we'll have her steering that car perfectly in no time! Ha! My boys drive theirs through spaces that I would never even attempt!! Glad her hearing is better! I nearly cried when mine said he could hear the birds chirping outside his window.......

I am so glad Emily is doing good now. I can't believe she couldn't hear that well. I am sure she is hearing things she has never heard. Bless her heart. Glad she is enjoying her car more.. I love that SK will get in with her. Such sweet girls... give them a hug and kiss for us. Kay gave me the girls picture from the photo shoot you did at Thanksgivng it looks so good in a frame. Glad I have a good picture of the girls now. Love yall

Adorable!! Do you find yourself fast forwarding 10 or so years when they will be driving a real car. Oh My! Don't go there, I can't either :)
Beautiful family!
I could only imagine what it would be like to take that car around the neighborhood. My son has the little 4 wheeler and the battery went dead, my husband wants to replace the battery but I am nervous that this year he will KNOW how to steer! HA

Oh! You should've seen Greg after he got tubes - CostCo was the worst, he was in tears over how loud it was (I had never even noticed!)We had to drop out of The Little Gym for the same reason. About 4-6 months later he seemed acclimated to the sounds. Everything is a whole new world of sound!

Their dresses are darling by the way!

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.
