My Weekend with Cinderella and Dorothy

If there is one thing in our house that we get our money out of, it is costumes! The girls LOVE to dress up. The Dorothy dress is a 2 T, but Sarah Kate could care less. Keep in mind she is almost 4 years old. She loves to watch The Wizard of Oz. My Mom bought the video for the girls a couple of years ago. It is something they enjoy watching over and over when they are at my parents house. Sarah Kate calls it The Lizard of Oz.

How fun!

My sister and I loved playing dress-up with friend's when we were little and having tea parties, we had the real deal when we were older and all of the friend's we invited wore pretty dresses and got to decorate straw hats and eat all the yummy tea party foods and drink out of good China teacups with saucers.

My girls are the same way. On the weekends, they rarely have on regular clothes (even at 10 and 6). I know I will miss the days when I don't see someone in a princess dress or costume around here!

Your girls are precious!

Such cuties! Olivia was obsessed with The Wizard of Oz. For Halloween, she was Dorothy 3 years in a row. I think that movie is a little spooky in places!

My girls love playing dress up! I'm afraid my 9 year old is going to grow out of wanting to in a couple of years...makes me sad thinking about it!

My girls love playing dress up to! They are both into princesses right now! Love both of your girls outfits, but Dorothy is just adorable...even if it is a size or two too small on her. :)

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.
