Pictures of the Week

Friday night Emily had her first sleepover at our house. She invited Alex to spend the night. Sarah Grace came for a while, but she does not like to spend the night away from home. The girls had a little tea party and drank real hot tea. It was freezing cold outside, but they all wanted to wear Emily's Summer gowns.
Alex was a delight. We enjoyed having her! The two girls stayed up till 11, but they were up at 7.
Emily's kindergarten class made gingerbread houses yesterday. I helped out with them. It was interesting seeing and meeting the children that Emily is in class with.
Emily's teacher let Sarah Kate make a house too. I thought that was so thoughtful that she remembered the little sister.

Sarah Kate had her Christmas program last week. She did great and made a sweet little shepherd girl!

Laurie I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE how your kiddos dress and I especially love that they wear little girls clothes and Disney things. Kids grow up so fast and they just don't get to be little long enough. The little mermaid gowns are just right! Love your blog!

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.
