Sing we all Noel

 My recovery period did not go as I planned since the girls did not have school, due to snow, they were at home with me last week.  When Steve left for work on Tuesday, he told the girls they were not to bother me AT ALL unless there was an emergency.  The girls entertained themselves all day.  I am not sure what all went on, but they did get my camera and took 137 pictures.  I ought to do a post on the things they captured.  VERY entertaining.  Some of the images are unrecognizable.  Emily wrote some Christmas songs down and then took pictures of them.  I LOVE her version of Noel.

 Out family served at the Christmas store at our church this weekend.  SK was in the nursery, but Emily helped and she LOVED it!!!!!!  I am glad she is learning to serve at a young age.
 Three sweet girls at Neely's Build- a - Bear birthday!  SK is proud of her panda!  She had a wonderful time!!!!
 Emily got to help tell the story of missionary, Lottie Moon, on Sunday.  She did a fantastic job!!!!  She is the same height that Lottie Moon was.....4' 3."

The choirs samg and it was wonderful.  I was so proud of all the children and thankful for their teachers.

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.
