Ink and Storm

Thank you for all the advice about the dress! I tried many of your tricks. It is STILL there. I really feel like we have found the reservoir for the ink of Sharpie pens. Whatever she got in looks just like Sharpie ink.
Emily's friend Sarah Grace came over yesterday. When Sarah Grace comes over they like to play "storm." They pretend they are seeking shelter from a storm. Playing storm involves getting out every toy they own. This must have been a mild storm because the mess was not too bad yesterday.

My Mom overheard 2 old ladies talking in a Wal-Mart bathroom and they said that cheap shampoo for oily hair gets oily stuff out of clothes, we've tried it a couple of times and it works!

My kitchen must have had a "storm" last night b/c I don't remember it being this dirty. :)

Playing "storm"...that is a new one, ha ha! I hope my little one doesn't pick up on that--it would be a never ending battle! Your 2 girls are precious :)

LoL Love the playing storm idea! Kids can be so original. Oh, well there can be a clean up after the storm, but the fun memories will be there forever!

Enjoy your beautiful children. I love the hair accessories...isn't if fun?

We have 2 girls and 2 boys (now grown, I miss them so much), I would love to have a storm again!!

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.
