Weekend Getaway

We spent the weekend in TN and MS. We had a wonderful time seeing friends and family.
This is Steve's Granny. We love her so much.
Emily with cousin Carrington. She is a beautiful baby! My girls loved her.

Whitney and her Mom, Louise.

The cousins did a "play" together. They were setting up for the performance.
Me holding Sam Henry. He is 6 weeks old and he is very cute! Beautiful blue eyes.
We had a GREAT meal!!!!!!!!!! I ate fried squash, fresh black eyed peas, fresh green beans, poppy seed chicken, fresh cream style corn, corn bread, THE FAMOUS ROAST and sweet tea!. It was the best meal I have had in months.

I will post more pictures and highlights from the weekend later. I am not able to post any picture right now for some reason.

Where in TN did you go?? I actually laughed with the picture of you holding the baby. At first I thought it was a doll and then when I read your caption I figured out it was real. :)

I follow your blog a lot; however, I never comment, but I must say, that I am expecting you to have another baby Laurie. I mean, you can tell you are in baby mode with all these pictures of you holding babies and the look you have on your face with them.

BTW...I love your blog and your girls are precious!!!

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.
