Emily Started Preschool!

I asked Kristen to make monkey lips for the camera.
Silly Bands have been a big hit at our house.......with Kristen the cat. She is like a kitten again. I hope we do not have to make a trip to the vet because of these. I can see them now, wrapping around her intestines. Yes, she is eating them. I try to keep them away from her. She plays with them like she would a mouse and then eats them.
Emily loves them too. She wears the whole package on her arm at once.

Emily started preschool this week. I think she had a good day. Emily has a great teacher.
Sarah Kate missed her sooo much. She asked me about 50 times,"Where Emily go?" When we picked Emily up Sarah Kate hugged her over and over. She hugged her really tight off and on all the way to her car. SK patted Emily when they got in their car seats. They have fought a lot this Summer, but they do love each other.

You make me laugh! I miss visiting with you. Did Steve tell you we have plans Friday night? I'm laughing that he's our social coordinator! I think he's all about some catfish!!

I love the backpack and lunchbox! Too cute :) That's so sweet that they missed each other.

I'm so glad to see I'm not the only person in the entire world with a cat - ha! Loved the part about the girls. Precious.
Isn't it funny how siblings fight when they are together, but miss each other when they are apart??

Glad that Emily had a great first day! My daughter is big into Silly Bands as well! Our cat once ate one of those huge rubber bands from punching balloons and passed it, so we've really been on her to keep them far away from the cat!

Nothing like sisterly love!
Your girls are adorable!

My girls love the silly bands too. I saw a warning pic on facebook this week about them being imbedded in a little boys arm. He wore too many and must of slept and taken baths with them on. It was gross. Just wanted to send a word to the wise. I make my girls take them off at bedtime.

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.
