Six Candles on the Cake

Yesterday we had a little Birthday party for Emily at our house. She wanted Hello Kitty theme.

Last year at her party, we did a little art project. She wanted to do art at this party too.

We had Taco Bell for lunch. That is Emily's favorite place to eat.

Six candles.............

We ended the night by going to Chuck E Cheese. Emily loves that place. I was worn out by dinner time, but I did get in a few games of skee ball. I could play it all night long.
Little sister enjoyed the party just as much as the big girls.

I love it that you bought Taco Bell- that is pure genius, Laurie! We've ordered pizza, but I just never considered other fast food favorites! The girls look so sweet!

My niece Jamie was 7 on the 29th. We are having her party - a Cabbage Patch Kid party - on the 7th of January. Trial and error has taught us that it's best to wait until after New year's to do her party. Skee ball is my hideout and the only way I could suffer through Chuck E Cheese when my kids were little. What a crazy place!

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.
