Just a little update!
We are HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Daddy is doing well, but has a little fever that we are praying leaves SOON!
THANK THANK THANK YOU for the prayers that have carried us through a VERY STRESSFUL time!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't know if it was from riding in elevators many times a day or just stress, but I felt like I was going up and down in an elevator even when I wasn't.
Thank you for so many prayers and kind comments.
Steve's parents are taking care of our girls at our house. They have been a tremendous blessing.
And....for thre three people that may care. Kristen the cat has plucked herself bald.
Please continue to pray for us as we help daddy to get well.

I'm so so happy that your dad is home! Now maybe all three of you can get some rest and he can really start to get better. Hospitals are no place for rest and recovery! :) I'll continue to pray for all of you! Call if you need anything.
I'm sorry to hear Kristen is so stressed. Poor thing. Maybe I need to go visit her! :)

Great news about your Dad !!!
You might want to check with your vet about the cat....probably allergic to the food you are feeding !!! We have 2 dogs on allergen free food and they are doing great since we started it.

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.
