Testimony and Tea

I had the great honor of going with Kelly this weekend as she spoke at a church.  She did a fantastic job!!!!!!  I loved getting to go and hear!  We had a really good time!

Emily's class had a Mother's Day tea today.  I LOVED every second of it!!!! 

Everything about the tea was just darling!  They did portraits of their moms and we had to take a turn guessing which one was us.  I guessed right!  I am the one with the orange background.  Because my guess was correct, my name was put in a basket for a drawing.  I was the winner!!!!  I got a pot of Gerbera flowers!!!!  Emily was sooooooo soooooooo excited I won!

They did a video presentation that was so cute.  The children said things about their mothers.  Emily said my favorite thing to do was clean the house.  HA!  IT IS NOT!!!!!!!!  She just always sees me cleaning, but the house seems to never look any better.  She also said that my favorite food was pizza that smelled like cat food.  HA Ha!  That would be anchovey pizza.  That is not my favorite food, but I do like it!

Congratulations on winning the pot of Gerbera daisies :)

I love reading your blog. Your stories always make me laugh. When I read what Emily said about your favorite things (cat food pizza), I couldn't stop laughing. So funny. And her portrait of you is so cute!!

What a great pic Emily drew! Reese's Mother's Day Tea is next week and I am really looking forward to it.

Ohhh Emily, that girl is hilarious!!!!!!!!!! And LOVE the portrait!!!!! XO :)
I laughed out loud at "cat food pizza!" Too funny! When my son was that age, they answered questions about their moms for a Mother's Day tea and one of the questions was "what is your mom best at?" My son said "vacuuming." Ha!

I think Emily inherited some of her artistic talent from her Mom! So cute! Love the picture of you two together!

Emily's artwork is outstanding! You'll have to frame it! I have a wall that is "Jacie's Art Gallery" where I frame our favorite paintings/drawings etc. I love it, and it makes her feel special too.

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.
