Memorial Day Meeting

We spent our weekend visiting family in Tennessee and Mississippi.  This is my sister in law, Cissy and my niece, Meg.  Meg is 5 months old and this was our first time to meet her!  She is CUTE CUTE CUTE.  Her face lights up and she smiles if you even look in her direction. 

This picture of me and Meg is TRUE LOVE.  I have Chili's chips and salsa in front of me, but I would rather give Meg a bottle!

Steve and the little girls.

Steve and his younger brother, Justin.
SK, Steve, Meg, Emily, Reid.

Kay-K and Pop with their grandchildren.  They were so kind to keep all four of them on Saturday night so that we could have a double date with Justin and Cissy!  They are brave, we are thankful!

Handsome Reid.  My girls loved playing with him this weekend.

These are just a few of our pictures from the weekend.  I will do another post later.  I have things I need to do, like take a shower and wash clothes and put up dishes.
I am thankful for a WONDERFUL weekend!!!!

How nice! My parent's and I will be meeting my almost 4 month old niece for the first time soon, we don't have to go too far to meet her along with her 2 big sister's and her Mom since they're flying to Nonna's house (my sister-in-law's Mom) which is only a 3-4 hour drive for us and we'll be staying at a campsite since we just purchased a truck camper. She'll be 5 mos. old when we finally meet her though!

Fun!!! The first time we lived here in Ukraine, I was pregnant the last few months and craved chips and salsa. The only place I could get them was TGIF's and I'd send my housekeeper with a note so they'd give them to go. :)

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.
