Painting Partners

The girls did a little painting today. Makes me proud since I was an elementary art teacher for twelve years.

Sarah Kate was telling Emily what she had painted.
I always check on the girls right before I get in the bed. This is how I found SK last night.
I think I have found the two best drinks in all the world!

A Peach milkshake from Chick-fil-a.

and

A mocha Frappe from McDonald's.

PURE BLISS! I can't even speak when I partake of them because they are soooooo good. You have got to try these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Auntie D said…
I was wondering how the peach shake was.....I saw the sign the other day and thought it sounded SOOOO GOOD!

The peach milkshake is awesome, but they only have it for a limited time. I have to get one a week at least.

I have hear the Frappe's are SO VERY worth it! But, have yet to try one...don't know about a Peach Shake....
Gail said…
I love the mocha frappes at Mickey D's...costs a lot less than Starbuck's! Your little artists are quite talented.

I often sleep the same way SK does. I didn't believe it until when I was in college and two different roommates took pictures of me like that. I've woken up in that position someitmes, too. Oh well... it works!

Love, love, love the picture of your sleeping girl!!
I take the children to McDonald's for hashbrowns once a week. The other day, the girl tried to get me to buy one of the new coffee drinks. I almost did it...until she showed me the calorie content!...I am really short, so I have to watch what I eat with a magnifying glass. Same calorie count as one of McD's milkshakes. Wow!! They sure do look tasty though!!
Jennifer said…
The girls are so sweet painting!

I bet you moan when you drink those two drinks! Ha!

Such cute girls!!!! :) Peach shake...LOVE IT!!! Frappe from McD's...is it REALLY good?!? I'm a little hesitant because I'm addicted to Starbucks, but people (even my class of 2nd graders) say that it's wonderful. I guess I might just have to try it. Since you said, that is!! ;)

Laurie - I don't think I can read your blog anymore. I went to McD's and had a mocha frappe and OH MY GOSH!!!! This is not good for my diet plan at all. How dare you meantion it on your blog. I just had one this morning and I'm craving it like CRAZY now...it is going to be so hard for me to pass by McDonalds tomorrow!!! :) YUM!

You sure picked the best 2 drinks!! Those would have been my top picks too! Cute pictures of the girls painting. (Mary Avery's mom, Dana)

Haven't tried the peach shake -- will have to - someone from work also gave it high marks! Love the Caramel Frappe from McD's -- cheaper than Starbucks and tastes great!

Emily & Sarah Kate are getting to be such big girls! Cutie pies! Love the pic of her asleep! =)

Have a great day!

Love your pictures... I use to sleep the same way your daughter does when I was little. My mom use to tell me she use to have to come in to my room and reposition me.

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.
