Make-Up and Miracle

 I had the most wonderful time Friday morning with two of my beloved friends!!!!
Kelly and I spent the morning at Elizabeth's for make-up lessons.  Elizabeth has flaw-less make-up!  She always looks so beautiful-inside and out!!!!  Kelly and I have been wanting her to give us some helpful hints.  It was so much fun!!!!  GREAT FOOD, GREAT CONVERSATION and GREAT TIPS!!  I loved watching Elizabeth do her make-up and she did my eyes.  I should have taken a picture.  When I picked up Emily from school, she hopped in the car and said, "oohhhh.......  you look beautiful!"

Here is Kelly holding Elijah.  He is really really CUTE and sweet!

A miracle happened last week!

Sarah Kate seems to have been cured from the "I can only wear dresses syndrome."  Life at our house is so much easier and pleasant.  I had told her last week that since she was starting pre-k she needed to start wetaring pants and shorts. I have been praying that she would not be so particular about her clothes. The Lord has answered my prayer!
She wore shorts and pants everyday last week.  I asked her why she was being so sweet and agreeable about her clothes and she got this big grin and said, "well,  my thinking has come back."
I agree!  She is not acting crazy about her clothing anymore!


Our make-up lesson was SO MUCH FUN!!! I want to do it again!
And I love SK! So proud of her!

How fun! I wore mostly dresses when growing up though, I never really worn shorts much or pants anyways but as I got older I did wear shorts and pants but now I never wear shorts. My niece's always wore dresses with biker shorts or leggings under them and my 7 year old niece wears a lot of dresses that her Indian Grandma has made her though but sometimes she does wear pants and shorts.

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.
