Kelly's 40th Birthday Celebration!

 I am a little late posting the pictures from Kelly's 40th Birthday party.  Steve had told me back in September that there was NO WAY I could pull off a SURPRISE for her.  He was so afraid someone would acidentally say something to her.  Well,  I am pretty confident that we pulled it off.  I was a nervous wreck to be around Kelly the week of the party.  It was such a strange feeling knowing something about her that she did not have a clue about.  She had even told me her Sunday afternoon plans.  HA!
 Sweet friends!

 Precious college friends!!!  They came from Little Rock!
 This is the picture I love!  She was so shocked!!!!!  I was soooooo relieved that the plan worked.
 I love these ladies so much!!!!  So thankful God has placed them in my life!!!!

I did not get a picture of everyone there.  I took a few pictures when I first got there and then put my camera in my purse.  I don't know why I always do that.

I think everyone had a fun time!
Welcome to the 40's Kelly!  It's all good!


BEST birthday ever!! I can't believe you surprised me but you did!!! That was SOOOOO nice and a day I will never forget!!!

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.
