Good Times!

This has been a very good week for me. But, I have been a little too busy for my taste. I have had something EVERY night except for Tuesday night. I am soooooo happy to be able to relax tonight with my family! We all need it!
Thursday night we had our Sunday school girls night at Rachel's house. We laughed and had so much fun. I am sooooooo thankful for my church friends. Rachel has the cutest/neatest house. Her house is FULL of personality. Our Sunday school class is filled with personality too! I think everyone feels like they can be themselves in our group. We are so blessed to have each other!!!!!! I always ask group questions and we have lots of fun and laughs with the questions.

We had the honor of having Angie Smith speak to our Women's group this morning. She was wonderful! She is just so REAL. She was a delight to be around. She brought her 5 year old, Kate with her. She was soooooo well behaved. I need to take some parenting classes from Angie!

On a different note: SK is sorta/kinda potty trained. I do believe she is the oldest child on record to still use a changing table that I use everyday. She will be 3 in June. I have gotten sooooo much use out of the changing table and it is so good for this old mama's back. Well, it was a sad day on Thursday when I had SK on the changing table and the top of it came crashing down on one side. Sarah Kate said, "Ohhhh what happened?" I think that is a sign that we need to get rid of it. I am sad not to have a baby anymore.


I know it's not funny because SK could have been hurt, but I couldn't help but giggle imagining her asking, "WHAT WAS THAT?"

Sounds like a very busy, but SUPER FUN week!!!!

I'm just SO wishing I would've been able to come for Mugs and Muffins today. :( I adore Ang to pieces and I just know that so many people were BLESSED by her speaking this morning. :) And isn't Kate just a hoot?!?! That girl cracks me up!!!

Glad you are able to relax tonight...with your chips and salsa, sister!!! ;) :)

sounds like you had a fun week! i am uber jealous of the church family/friends you have. we are in desperate need of a home church, but can't find the right one. i long for friendships you speak of. i pray it is something we can find soon.

p.s. i used our changing table on our oldest until he was 3 and a couple of months after! HA!

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.
