Happy Easter!!!!!!!!!!!

We decided to go ahead and get Emily a bunny.

NO! I am just kidding!!!!!!!!!!!!

After reading the advice from many of you, we are NOT getting a bunny! No, thank you!
The good thing is......... I think the bunny phase has ended.

But Emily did get to enjoy two cute bunnies at our Easter playgroup.

Two girls that LOVE each other......Sarah Grace and Emily. Tracy, Sarah Grace's mom, had playgroup at her house yesterday. It was fantastic!

Best of friends......Neely and Sarah Kate.

Emily would live at Sarah Grace's house and Sarah Kate would live at Neely's house if we would let them.

Another dear friend, Summer. They have been in MDO and preschool together since they were babies.
The Easter bunny made a surprise visit!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Emily is crazy about Alex too. They have been friends since they were born.
Tracy goes all out! She is the hostess with the mostess. I think I stress her out with all my food dislikes. She always makes sure there is something I can eat!
My friends: Kacy, Erin, Kelly and Bethany

Sarah Kate always love to play with Wells at church and playgroup. Sarah Kate is a week older than Wells.
Sarah Kate had to stop and eat some chocolate. That is something I would do.

Vonda shared the story of Easter through her resurrection eggs. I want to get some of these for the girls.

I got the biggest kick out of reading what you will not eat.
I am soooo glad that I did a post on that! I feel like I have so much support. I think maybe we should start some sort of association. I would talk out loud at the computer every time someone said they hated mayo too. I would say.."oh good. or Yes!' Thank you for all your responses! I loved it!

....."Christ LOVED us and gave himself up for us"....Ephesians 5:2

....."He will save His people from their sins. " Matthew 1:21

Happy Easter!!!!!!!!!!! I was proof reading and noticed that I had written "Happy Eater!" Well...that fits too!

Miss Pattycake has a video out using the eggs that my kids (especially the girls) love. Benjamin's Box is also a cute story that uses the eggs.

You got me with your first sentence, Laurie! I couldn't believe that you were crazy enough to get Emily a bunny after all of the negative advice you got! Haha, it cracked me up to find out that you were kidding!

Have a blessed Easter! Alleluia! He is risen!

Laurie, you absolutely crack me up! I often laugh out loud at the computer while reading your posts. I came across your blog through kellys. I started reading hers the day Harper was born. I am a fellow believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and stay at home (homeschooling) mother of four. I never comment, but just couldn't stand it anymore and had to thank you for making me smile!!!! :) God Bless, Jen in Connecticut

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter!

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.
