Baby Face

I am sooooo thankful to say that Sarah Kate's face is almost back to normal. Thank you Aquaphor for speeding up the healing. SK's hair looks like fluff and puff in this picture and I love it! I like big hair!

Also, thank you for the compliments on the red chest. I used a color from Sherwin Williams called Salute. I painted it, and then used sand paper to take paint off on the edges and ridges.

Laurie - I'm probably going to seem like a crazy woman stalker; but, I read Kelly's blog and I saw a picture of the play kitchen the girls were playing with at your house. If you don't mind, can you email me and tell me where you purchased it? I would really appreciate it.

SO glad SK is better...bless her. I just hurt for her seeing the pics.

I, too, love your chest. I need some lessons in painting furniture. My dream is to have a storage room full of furniture that I can swap around in my house! Just need to learn to fix it up!
Lovin the puffy hair!! I love when I take Ella's hair down from a pony tail because it is puffy. So happy to see her face is better!

I forgot to tell you how much I LOVED the red dresser!! I love doing that kind of stuff too! It looks so good!

Love all your photos from the fair! Did you go see the Worlds Smallest Woman? And was it the young lady from Haiti? We had her here in San Antonio and it just really disturbed me. I felt like I did something wrong going in to see her. I didn't expect a real person. I thought it would be some illusion. It was terrible! I actually wrote a post about how uncomfortable it made me!

Laurie - I am not a stalker either (but did find you through Kelly's blog) and I too would like to know where you purchased your kitchen. I have an almost 1 year old daughter who I think would like one!! My email is

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.
