Dog-gone Fun!

Last night I went to Kelly's surprise baby shower. I loved seeing the surprise on her face! We had a lot of fun!

Steve went deer hunting with Scott this past weekend in South Arkansas. He killed a deer with his bow. I was very happy for him, but very sad for the deer and it's family!!!
While Steve hunted, I went with my parents to a dog show that my hometown hosts. It was a really nice show. I had never been to one before. They had over 600 dogs participate.

This was my favorite kind of dog.

At the dog show with Meme.
We also went to a cupcake shop that is new in town. Yummy Cupcakes is the name! Gotta LOVE the little cell phone on top.
Sarah Kate had her first dentist appointment last Thursday. She did great and she got a very good check-up.
They were explaining x-rays to her.
Sarah Kate was making an imaginary phone call before going in the dentist's office.

The girls LOVE to watch the Wizard of Oz. My parents bought the movie for them and they love watching it when we go visit them. SK calls it the "Lizard of Oz."

I took Sterling once to a dog show to see her dad compete when she was a puppy.
I was so wrapped up in a conversation with another woman with a puppy that I didn't realize that she had wiggled under a fence and was in the ring with dogs that were being judged...that is, until over the loud speaker a gentleman says, "Will the Bernese Mountain dog please exit the show ring in Ring #(I don't remember...)." MORTIFICATION!

Glad you had fun! I also feel badly for the poor deer. To my knowledge, I have not had deer meat, but I am sure I have. Does Steve bring the meat home for the family to eat?
SK is so darn cute by the way!!

Laurie, I too get so sad when my husband kills a deer. I feel so sorry for its family. I know that is crazy, but I can't help it. Glad to know I am not the only one who thinks it is sad.

I seen the pics of Kelly's shower. Looks like an awesome time! I'd love to go to a dog show. I think that last one is a Sibearian Husky. A friend of mine used to have one & it had one brown eye & one blue eye. It was super intellegent too. Hope you have a great week.
"The Lizard of Oz" - too funny! :)

Lizard of Oz! How cute! I think I would like that dog show. I love dogs!
ha! Lizards of Oz! Cute!! I have always loved that movie--and every once in a while, one of its lines will pop out of my mouth, such as "i don't think we're in kansas anymore toto", LOL.

Glad you had a good time at the baby shower and the dog show!!

When we were stationed in Alaska, we had a couple of opportunities to ride on some sleds pulled by Iditarod dogs- a fun experience!

Well apparently you are from my hometown as well and I did not realize that. Yummy Cupcakes is wonderful and the dog show is a big attraction for our area! Sounds like y'all had a great time.

hahaha....when you said, "this was my favorite kind of dog" were you referring to the one in the picture that was lying down playing dead? ;)

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.
