Celebrate Good Times!

Saturday was Steve's birthday! We met his parents in Branson to celebrate. We ate at Joe's Crab Shack for dinner on Friday night. It was soooo good!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could have ordered three steam pots, but I did not.
(Out of Order) Me and the girls before church this morning.
Pop and Kay-K. Notice the cats that Emily wanted in the picture.
We spent all day Saturday at Silver Dollar City. I FROZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did not bring appropriate clothes. It is so discouraging to have to pack winter clothes for a May 15th event. CRAZY WEATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This little ladybug ride is my type ride. I am soooooo scared of roller coasters. Steve rode them all!!!!!!

We took our kids to Legoland in CA once and our day was freezing, too-we still had a great time but a few degrees warmer would have been so nice! :)

I hate roller coaster too! Everytime we go to a theme park with those kind of rides I am always the designated purse holder and picture taker. But I love the shows!!!

Such a good picture of you & your girls! I'm allergic to shellfish & my husband loves it. Sometimes I bring home imitation crabmeat for him from the store because I feel bad :)

You look cute despite being cold and you are cracking me up with your new phone! Sometimes the old reliable things are the best. I couldn't agree more!

I love Silver Dollar City!! Oh how I miss Living in Springfield and being able to drive to Branson for the day :( I still make it a point to go down when we visit! Did you all go to Joe's crab shack at the Landing? I had heard there was terrible flooding, like the whole thing was underwater but hadn't heard anything since. Hopefully all the water is gone and the businesses were able to re-coop their losses.

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.
