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.

Disney World- Part 1

I went to Disney World for the first time five years ago.  Before I went, I think I had the worst attitude ever about Disney.  I've never been one to enjoy Disney movies/cartoons.  I didn't want to go, and waited until the evening before we left to even think about packing.
After the first three hours at Epcot, I was in love with the place.  I decided that I would watch every Disney movie ever made.  Ha!  (I have not!)   My love for WDW still holds true!  This was our third trip as a family.  I loved having the Stamps with us.  They bring fun everywhere they go!  Our girls loved playing together and got along so well. 





 My favorite meal was our Cinderella dinner at the Grand Floridian.  All you can eat mussels, ( I'm probably the only guest who ate them!)  polenta, chocolate mousse!  SOOOOO good!


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:

Goodbye Summer!

We had a great Summer, but it was a little too busy for my taste!  Hard to believe I have a 4th grader and a 6th grader!  Time does fly!
 Here is Emily and Sarah Kate before going to meet the teacher/open house!  They were excited and I was a nervous wreck!  I just want my girls to have great teachers and good kids in their class...DON'T WE ALL WANT THAT?  
 Then we left for Branson with our dear friends!  I love these girls so much!  Good friends right here!
 First day of school!  Lots of praying going on this day!

Emily got braces in May!  In just five days, her two front teeth went together!  WOW!
