Trick or Treat

Sarah Kate dressed as Dorothy this year.  She has planned to be Dorothy for about 6 months.  So glad I was able to find her the costume!

As for Emily....she was  girl named CiCi from Disney's show, Shake it Up.  I have never seen the show and I did not think Emily had either, but she said she watched it with a babysitter.  Oh well, she was proud of her costume.  I don't let Emily watch those pre-teen shows yet.  There is nothing wrong with that show, but I just try to keep her shows age appropriate.  I have noticed that a lot of those shows have a lot of smarty kids and subject matters that Emily is not mature enough for right now.

We had some adorable little bumble bees stop by our house.  We all went Trick or Treating together and it was SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It was a magical/memory making time for the girls.

I think Harper had the best time of her life.  She wanted to hold my hand all night and she would look up at me and say,"Waurie, I'm having fun!"  She would tell me that after every house.  My girls loved being with Harper and Hollis. 
Very cute and clever!
We all had a great evening!  I think we have a new traditions of Trick or Treating with the Stamps!

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.
