Snow Day

I wanted an up-close picture of Emily's two front teeth. I KNOW she will lose one of these this week. It is literally dangling, but she will not let me pull it. This may be her last picture with both of her two front teeth.

We are having a snow day here today! Because it is snowing, Sarah Kate thinks it is Christmas. The girls have been enjoying playing pet shop and coloring. They have also made a HUGE mess of the house.
"Flight attendants, please prepare the cabin for take off."
Look what I got! Thanks to some of you telling me that I could get them outside of an airplane!!!!!! All I seem to do on this snow day is eat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yesterday we got the girls a Hungry Hungry Hippo game. Steve and I both had this when we were little. They LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It will be a miracle if we don't lose the marbles!!!

Sarah Kate is completely over her strep throat! I am so glad she is back to normal!

I loved Hungry Hippo! Where did you get those airplane cookies? I can't believe you enjoy them so much!

Happy Snow Day! We love those cookies, too!!
Your girls are so pretty ~ isn't it funny how two kids from the same parents look totally different? I think ours are that way, too!

Have you ever had the Biscoff spread? I found it in the peanut butter aisle and its TOO DIE FOR!!! SO good and if anyone has a peanut allergy its perfect because it looks like peanut butter but tastes amazing!!!

How fun! Remember snow days but didn't get too many once I was home-schooled.

Love biscotti with a cup of tea, have had chocolate and almond biscotti too,we've gotten a big thing of it before at Sam's Club.

My Dad used to pull mine and my sister's teeth in the living room when we were little.

Never played Hungry, Hungry Hippos before.

Happy Valentines Day!!!!

We have hungry hippo and I think we've lost all our marbles - no pun intended!

Also I don't think I've seen SK without a bow in her hair!!

Love the post we love Hungry /hippos to. I know the feeling about trying to wiggle teeth my daughter is the same way. Her front tooth was just hanging there too and we thought any day it would come out after a few days and having it really hang there i wiggled a bit and finally came out grosses me out. But always exciting when the tooth fairy comes

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.
