The Sleepover

Emily went to her very first sleep-over on Friday night! She spent the night with one of her very best friends, Sarah Grace. I truly believe it was one of the best weekends she has ever had. In fact she said, "I am more excited than getting on a plane and going to Disney World!!!!"
When Steve came home from work I told him that Emily was spending the night at Sarah Grace's house and he said, "I'm sad....that is just so grown up."
She does not sleep at our house and she did not sleep at their house either. She woke poor Tracy up at 2:00 a.m. Steve and I were so chawed about that.
She is wanting to know when she can go again!

They grow up so fast! Sorry she did not sleep. I always think someday they will sleep so much we cannot drag them out of bed. However my 12 year old is still up at the crack of dawn so I am still waiting!

Awww what a special memory. She's so cute. I love her excitement for life.
That IS so grown up!! My 6 year old just stayed over with a friend about a month ago and I think I was the one that didn't sleep that night, worried about him!

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.
