Pumpkin Palooza

We spent Halloween weekend in Starkville, and as always, we all had a blast! We went to Pumpkin Palooza Friday night, and it was so wonderful for the kids! They had so much fun, and I cannot wait to do it again next year!! We had 2 super heroes with us, so that made it even better!

Fire Station Field Trip

I went with Riley Kate's class to the Fire Station, and they had a great time! They learned some valuable things and how to call 911, which I hope she doesn't decide to call and chit chat!! I love my little mischievous Riley Kate!!!

MSU Homecoming

We LOVE to tailgate at MSU games, and we are so excited to share that experience with our children! We have quite a few future bulldogs in these pictures!! Every kid already has their own cowbell, even Baby Brantley, and believe me, they know how to ring them-haha!! They have so much fun with all their friends, and we look foward to many more football seasons full of making new memories!

Zoo Boo

We had a blast at Zoo Boo! It was fun being all together-just the 5 of us!! As you can tell, Grayton and Riley Kate were Batman and Batgirl and sweet little Brantley was the Joker-haha! Too funny!

Are the fake legs on this costume not hilarious!?!

We kept putting the fake legs in funny positions!

The Dracula Disco was fun!! We danced to the Monster Mash!!

Brantley was not too excited about the hat on this costume, but he went right to sleep when we put him in the stroller and never made another peep!!

Cotton Picking Good Time

Riley Kate's class took a field trip to the Flowers' Farm, and it was so much fun! The kids got to pick their own cotton, watch a crop duster take off, and tour the gin. It was a very educational trip. Thank you to the Flowers for a great time!

Parents' Night Out!

Yay! We had a super fun time at Kate's birthday dinner!! Amazing food, wine, and friends-couldn't have been a better night! A much needed "adults only" night out!!

Brantley's 1st Trip to the Park

We had to take a picture of Brantley's 1st trip to the park!! We love to go to the park, especially with our friends! It won't be long before Brantley is running around the park trying to keep up with his older brother and sister!!

Fun With Friends At Brooks' Birthday!!

We had a great time at Brooks' Fireman birthday party!! The kids got to explore the firetruck and run around in the beautiful sunshine! It's always so much fun to get together with friends!!

William's Bday Party

Happy Birday to William! We had so much fun at William Litton's birthday party! Riley Kate was so mesmerized by the petting zoo! She LOVES all animals and she was in absolute heaven surrounded by all the animals!! Grayton had a great time running around and playing with all his little friends!

This year we decided to try soccer, and the kids absolutely loved it! Jason ended up coaching their little team, which was great! Brantley was such a great sport, as always!! He went to every game and never made a fuss, so I go to watch the kiddos play every game!

Class Reunion

We had so much fun at my class reunion! I just think I had the best, most fun classmates ever! It was so wonderful to get to see everyone! I was glad I got to go since it was only 5 weeks after Brantley's arrival! I had to leave a little early to go feed him but really enjoyed the party! The girls that put it together did a fabulous job!! Yay for the Class of 2000!!

What is there to say?

Well, Riley Kate has really paid close attention to EVERYTHING I do with Baby Brantley. She now nurses her baby dolls, stuffed animals, and even snakes & lizards-it's too much! I just hope she doesn't teach her friends this, or I'll be getting some phone calls!

Mama's Back!!

I hit the door running, literally, as soon as I got the ok from my Dr!! I am so happy to be back in the running world again! I have a long way to go to get back in shape, but it is so nice to be active again! Brantley already loves the jogger! He didn't make a peep on our first run! Grayton asked me if I could please get a stroller, so all 3 of them could ride!! Oh my goodness, NO! Can you imagine that-haha! All of my children have loved to stroll and go jogging with me, but it's time for one of them to ride a bike or something-haha!


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.
