Weekends Don't Always go as Planned

Friday night Steve and I went out to eat with Kelly, Scott and Hollis. We had the big girls in a PNO program. I had just about eaten my last bite when I got a call that Emily had thrown up. Poor thing. She was so chawed. I felt so bad for her. I guess it was just a virus that hit her suddenly and only lasted about 12 hours.

We had a great time, only if was was just an hour. The picture of Hollis is so dark, but she still looks CUTE!
I took the girls to see Judy Moody this Summer. The thing that stands out the most to Sarah Kate in that movie is when Judy's friend throws up all over her on a roller coaster.
Sarah Kate would not get near Emily Friday night or Saturday. She was telling me to get away from Emily and not hug her because she might throw up on me. SK always watches t.v. from the corner of the couch. But, on Saturday morning she sat in the red chair across the room to watch.

Saturday night, our neighborhood had a big party. The girls were so excited to dress up in their Halloween costumes. Emily was Ariel and Sarah Kate was Thumbelina.

Emily got her face painted at the party. We had a great time and even got to go on a hay ride.

When I was washing clothes yesterday afternoon, Sarah Kate asked me if she could put the "syrup in the wash cleaner." Translation: detergent in the washing machine

That's cute/funny your little girl didn't want to get near her sister when she was sick!

"Syrup in the wash clean" is cute. :) My 2.5 yr old calls it a washer clean.

who wouldn't rather pour syrup than detergent?!?!? LOL

Hi Laurie, I meant to comment on your trip to Memphis a few posts back! I'm from Memphis so it was nice to see some familiar places.

How nice that you got to stay at the Peabody! My husband and I stayed there on our wedding night. It's SO beautiful and such an amazing hotel. Glad ya'll had a fun time on your anniversary.

What was the name of the place you ate dinner that you didn't really like the food?

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.
