OH MY JOSH! That seems to be the favorite phrase for Emily right now. My mother told me that I am always saying ," oh my gosh" and Emily has just picked it up from me. She just has a letter wrong.
Well, I heard "OH MY JOSH" for every bow I pulled out of the box from Allison today. Allison is the bow making queen and she does them right! We are blog friends and she sent my girls these bows today. WE LOVE THEM! They are so cute, good quality and you can even wash them.

They had to check themselves out in the mirror with the bows on. Sarah Kate was thrilled too. She was saying "Happy Birthday to me" as I was showing her the bows. If you are wanting some good ,cute bows contact Allison at: You will not be disappointed.

I left her alone for about three minutes on Friday. Emily starts saying,"OH----MY----JOSH!" This picture was made right after I took the marker away and put it in a high high cabinet. It will stay there till she is at least eight.

P.S. I hope the marker was washable!! She was obviously devestated that you are putting her marker up until she's 8!! :)

My friend's little boy took a permanent one to her ivory fabric on the dining room chairs.... I refuse to have them in the house until I am sure we're past that stage and I only slightly freak out on the inside when I see they've had them at church. I probably should get over it!

The bows are darling and love the new phrase!!

Oh my josh on SK and the marker!
The bows are so cute! I loved the one E was wearing today!

I saw "oh gosh" a LOT too and especially when Harper has a stinky diaper - while I'm wiping it so Harper has started saying CONSTANTLY "oh gaaaah". ha! "Oh be careful little ears what you hear..........."

OH MY JOSH! That is simply precious!

Those hairbows are so cute! I will have to go take a look since I have so many friends in real life and the blog world that are pregnant or just had babies! It seems like a baby boom is going on huh!?! What could be better! :)

I cannot believe that SK drew all over herself! I bet you were astonished when you walked in to see that! I can remember drawing all over myself with markers when I was little and my mom was so mad at me because it didn't want to come off in the bath. I walked around for a couple days with marker all over me...and it was on my FACE! My little friend and I decided it would be fun to put on make-up with markers so you can imagine how silly I looked!

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.
