 Saturday afternoon we dyed eggs.  I think we bought the last box of Easter egg dying kit the store had.  Nothing like waiting to the last minute.
 The weekend was super busy for us.  Friday night Steve and I helped to set up our church's Lord's supper.  It made for a late night because we had to clean it all up too.
 Our church had two services yesterday and Steve was a greeter at the first service.  I drove seperately with the girls to second service where we helped with baptisms.  One of our new Sunday School members got baptized and it was an honor to be able to help her.

 I am so thankful that Scott got a family picture of us.
 Here is the traditional girls Easter picture with KFC to follow!
 We sure enjoyed having our friends over for lunch!
Sarah Kate drew this during the church service.  I love it!  I will keep it forever!

Great Easter pictures. I love your dress. I had such a hard time finding dresses this summer. I agree with the others to frame that picture.

Laurie, I love all the Easter pictures. The family picture is great and would love a print. Glad the girls' dresses fit them. Emily and Sarah Kate look so beautiful and grown up. Have a great week. Love, Kay-K

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.
