Our Goings On

We went out early this morning to play in the beautiful snow.

We had spaghetti for lunch. Check out the ballet outfit and the face. She also ate blueberries for dessert. Thank goodness for Oxyclean.
Sarah Kate fixed ice water for herself and Emily at lunch. I heard Sarah Kate say, " I don't wanna use that cup, it's angry!"

Thank You Thank You Thank You to all of you who took the time to read my blog and tell me about jeans that might work for me! You have given me great direction! I am glad to know I don't have to go around like this forever.
We have beautiful snow at our house today! I put the girls in mismatched WARM clothes and we went out. I wore my pink robe with a ski jacket over it. YES I DID! I could have stayed for hours because I was so warm. I am sure that no one saw me because we stayed in the backyard.

I officially LOVE you! You crack me up about the robe, totally something I would do. My guilty clothing pleasure is a pair of my husband's flannel pj pants. I wear those all of the time. I'd like to have them on now (because it's a chili 35 today in Austin with NO snow...darn) but I actually had to get out of the car today. Otherwise I'm not ashamed to admit I'll go to the ATM wearing them.

I should also point out that I have to pull them up to my chest because they are so long. Which totally adds to my "cool" factor. :-P

LOL at the robe and the coat! I see absolutely no problem with that. If you were warm, and in your private back garden, go for it! :D

We have snow here today too but it is too cold to play, with the wind chill -8! Your girls are adorable! I love the monkey shirt and ballet outfit story. My three year old Cooper only want to wear his Colts or John Deere sweatshirt.

I love a snow day because it means I can wear old clothes, no make-up and white socks 'cause NO BODY is coming by my house today!! Just a great feeling except I do worry some emergency will happen and we will be called to the hospital and I would be a mess!

Did you wear leggings under your robe? Didn't your legs get cold?
I'm concerned. I don't own a robe, but I may have to get one after reading about yours. Oh, the blog pressure!!!

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.
