Tailgating, Bulldog Style!!

Well, we all headed to Starkville to watch the Dawgs finally pull out a win against Vandy!! It was a great game to watch! (Thanks to Jason's mother who watched our sweet but very busy 2 year old, so I could watch the game too!!) We enjoyed tailgating, but did not get to tailgate long enough--my fault--I had to get my daily run in that morning before we left--I know, I am too set in my ways!! We had a great time and are looking forward to Homecoming--I am going to be a little more flexible and run in Starkville that morning, so we will already be there!!!

The kids were so excited, and they had a wonderful time!!

Here are some pics of us tailgating at MSU--how we love it!!
Here are some pics of the little friends Grayton made on game day. They had a fabulous time throwing the football and just being silly little boys!!

Family Jewels

Okay, so I admit I love the show, Gene Simmons Family Jewels!! Jason and I both love to watch it, and it has made us love Gene Simmons and his whole family, especially Nick. Well, we heard he was coming to Clarksdale tonight to play at Ground Zero, so we went and I got to hear Nick sing and meet him--so cool!! He is so tall and very nice!! When I met him I said "You are so tall!" and he said "and I'm sorry I'm sweaty too--well, you are so little!" He is 6'7" and I am 5', so there is quite a difference!! Unfortunately I was unable to get a picture with Gene, but I really wanted one of Nick!! I know--sounds silly and immature, but I was so excited!!


After the birth of Grayton, Jason and I began running and became highly addicted!! I soon made my first jogging stroller purchase, The Tike Tech all terrain single jogger. It was wonderful until I needed another seat for Riley Kate. I got this Dreamer Design off of ebay, and I love it! I call it my freedom and my sanity because I can load up the kids and go running whenever I feel like it! The kids love to stroll. They usually ask to go. We have run several races just for fun--Delta Jubilee 5K, Juke Joint Festival 5K, St. Jude 1/2 Marathon, Double Decker 10K, 300 Oaks 10K, etc. We love to run and if there is a race we can make it to, we'll run it!! We are running about 4 to 5 miles a day now with long runs of 7 to 12 miles on the weekends!


Since Grayton's 1st birthday, I have ventured out a bit and started baking and creating my kid's birthday cakes each year. Also, I am the homeroom mother for Grayton's class, so I am trying to get creative with my baking. I am not very good at it, but it is so much fun!! If anyone has any new cute ideas, share them with me.
