Night Night





Steve put the girls to bed tonight. He told me to come kiss them goodnight. Then he added, "they are both in Emily's bed." We have never let them get in Emily's bed together at night time. They were looking and talking about a book together as I spied on them from the hall. They were kissing each other too. I had to get my camera and get some shots of the sweetness.
Since these pictures were taken, Steve moved Sarah Kate to her bed and now there is lots of crying from both girls.

I love, love this, Laurie. I will never forget the first time my girls got in bed together and looked at a book together and were sweet. I cried as if someone had died. :-) Now Lowrey reads to Annie and it's about the only time they're sweet to each other...but just perfect! Emily and SK are just precious.

Aw, that reminds me of my sister and me when we were little. We used to have "Sister Night" once a month or so - usually on a Friday night - and we would sleep together in one of our rooms. Ha! I'm sure my mom thought we were nuts, but we loved whispering late into the night.

This is so precious! I have two girls too, 4yrs and 10mos, and I look forward to these days with them. I remember sharing a bed w/ my own sister on occasion as a little girl. Sweet pictures...you're girls are beautiful!

They are so cute! My sister and I are 16 months apart and we were about your girls' age when we "got along well". Then we "fought" a lot and never really got close again until after I was out of college! sheesh! But sisters are great!

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.
