Sweet Baby Hollis

Today has been a wonderful day! I went to the hospital EARLY this morning to be there for Hollis' birth. Harper was so cute and friendly to everyone this morning. She calls me "Waurie" and I love it!
She did not know what to think about her Momma going into the operating room.
Lots of prayers have been prayed for Hollis to be healthy. Thank you Jesus, she is perfect! I got to do some baby holding tonight and I could have held her all night long and not gotten tired of her. Her hair is simply wonderful. It is a lot thicker than mine is.
I love this picture because it looks like she is telling us,"I'm okay" with her precious hand.
Kelly looked great. This was made soon after she got out of the recovery room.
I am so excited for Kelly and Scott to experience life with two girls!!!!

Yesterday I got the girls some swim suits. They were soooooo excited. Sarah Kate's looks like a pink tutu. She calls it her " swim scoot."
Emily 's is a bikini (She has wanted one for the past year.) She calls her's a "kini."

So sweet! My mom's best friend while i was growing up was like my aunt/2nd mom.... And still is to this day! Her name is Loretta and we always called her 'fretta' since we couldn't pronounce her name. But somehow we find ourselves still calling her 'fretta' almost 30 years later ;)
I'm sure miss Harper will always have a soft spot for her 'waurie' ;0)

I'm so happy for Scott & Kelly. Hollis is another beautiful miracle!

I bought Amelia a swimsuit yesterday. Have to get them now while all of the cute ones are still available. :)

Your girls are so funny!
Hey Laurie! We met at OBU, but it's been a while since we've crossed paths. Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I just love that you were able to be at the hospital for Hollis' arrival.

I'm so happy for Kelly! And I love the story about your girls swimming suits! My niece is 5 and she calls it a "baking suit" instead of a bathing suit! Ha! I love the cute things kiddos say!

Wonderful that you were able to be with your best friend to welcome her second daughter into the world,Wonder what your girls will think about Kelly's baby, maybe that she is a baby doll,

In love with Hollis' hair! So thankful that prayers were answered and she is healthy :)

I made your roast tonight! I had no idea what to expect with those ingredients, but it was AMAZING! Definitely will be making that more often!!

Hollis is adorable! So glad they are healthy! It's so much fun to be there when your bff has a baby!

Two questions for you: First will you put up your roast recipe again? It sounded so yummy when you had it on the blog, but I forgot to write it down. Also, would you be willing to share where you got your necklace you wore to Hollis' birth? I love it with your cantaloupe sweater!

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.
