Easter Egg Hunt

Today I took Sarah Kate to an eggstravagant Easter egg hunt. My child did not want any eggs....she filled her basket with suckers.  Oh well, to each his own.

My friends Tracy always hosts our Sunday School/playgroup Easter egg hunt.  She goes all out!  She knows how to throw a party!!!!

We had a great time!!!

On the way home SK was singing "Father Abraham."  It was so sweet to hear her sing.  Then she asked,  "how did they bother Abraham?  "His sons bothered him?"  I asked her to repeat herself.  She said the same thing again.  I then asked her to sing the song for me once again.  She thought they were singing, "bother Abraham."  Cute!

I have turned forty and the dentist is talking dentures with me.  SO SAD!  I went to the dentist yesterday and he told me that if I did not start flossing EVERYDAY that I would for sure lose all my teeth.  LOVELY!  I must once again begin putting the little things that look like a baby bottle brush in between my teeth every night.  But, I guess a little torture is better than wearing dentures at my age.

You have such a lovely smile and pretty teeth, I hope you will be inspired to do the hard work of daily flossing (torture) to keep them. So much more is known today about how oral health affects our entire body and importantly our organs. You deserve to keep your teeth if you have the option. You are worth it!

I read all the time and whenever dental things come up, I feel like I should comment and then feel silly because I don't know you. Ha! But I am right there with ya sister. I have one tooth that needs to be pulled and I am so scared and embarrassed and . . . Just ugh. I'm sorry :(
I have a feeling I will be getting the same lecture in a few years. :) I better start flossing more often! The Easter egg hunt looks darling.

What a fun day! Your friend really outdid herself, everything is adorable. As far as suckers instead of eggs, I say she is a smart gal :)

My teeth are pitiful at 32 years old. I can only imagine I will get that same talk sooner than later.

Have a lovely weekend!

I try and floss daily, I can floss better now that my Dad took out my bottom retainer (it was cemented in).

You don't want dentures, trust me it's worth flossing! I saw my mom go through pure torture in getting her dentures just 8 years ago, just as I had my daughter. It scarred me forever, I've always told my dentist I will do whatever it takes to avoid dentures! Happy flossing!
What a great party!

I think it is the funniest thing when kids switch up words. Your story about your daughter singing "bother Abraham" cracked me up. I remember when I was little we were on family vacation and went to see where Martin Luther King Jr. was a preacher. My dad told all my brothers that we were going to see the preacher. When we got there one of my brothers refused to go in. My dad picked him up to carry him in and he started crying and screaming. He did not want to go in and see "the CREATURE!" He thought we were saying creature instead of preacher. Children are precious and those are the stories you will always remember and look back and laugh about.

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.
