Memorial Day

Last night we went to Kelly and Scott's for dinner. It was delicious! I took a fruit pizza. This is a recipe I always enjoy making in the summer.

It is VERY easy and fun to make:

Slice a roll of sugar cookie dough and space them out on a cookie sheet.
Bake @350 for 12 minutes
In a mixer:
8 oz. cream cheese
1/3 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Spread on baked cookie crust and put whatever fruit you like on it!

The CUTE baby Hollis! She loves to smile and coo and talk. I could just eat her up!
Trying to get three little girls to look at a camera and smile is near impossible.
Steve and I have been talking for four years now about getting some trees planted in our yard. We already had one little tree, but have wanted more.
Yesterday, we had three trees planted in our yard!!!!! I was soooo excited. It was like getting new furniture or something. I watched from the windows as the men planted our trees. Now....we have to keep them alive!

Thanks for posting that dessert pizza recipe. I love to make it, too, and I always have to look it up. I'm printing yours so I won't have to look it up again.

We planted several trees in our yard back in NC; they're probably dead now after these last tenants!

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.
