Cookie Swap 2010

Me and my precious babies!!!

She seriously talked his head off-haha!!

Grayton is so much like me, it's scary!!

Three sweet, beautiful little boys!! Well, I am a little biased!

Grayton and Paxton telling Santa they want pretty much everything BATMAN-haha!!

We love Santa Clause!! He's so "sweet and magical," according to Riley Kate and Grayton.

Sweet Jennie Sherard does a cookie swap every year for the kiddos, and it has become an event we all really look foward to! The kids have so much fun playing with each other while eating tons of cookies, candies, and cupcakes--what more could a kid ask for? Haha! Santa also takes time from his super busy schedule to stop by!

Mimi's Surgery

We all packed up and went to Jackson's for Jason's mother's knee surgery. She did so great, and everything went well with the surgery! I think it helped to have 3 precious little smiling faces greet her when she left recovery!! We snapped these cute pictures just passing time in the waiting room!

Egg Bowl 2010

Getting our "Game Faces" on-haha!! We were in our seats and ready for the game over 1 hr before the game started-haha! My husband likes to arrive when the team does-ha! The kids were such a joy and had so much fun! We're looking foward to next year's game in Bulldog Country!!

Hanging out on the Square in Oxford! And, of course, we had to get some yogurt from YaYa's even though it was cold outside!

Yes, this was our pregame fun!! We put an Ole Miss t-shirt on a stuffed blacked bear, tied a rope around his neck, and let Riley Kate drag it through the Grove!! Haha-it was soooo funny! Priceless!! We would have been in trouble with some of the Ole Miss fans if Riley Kate wasn't so darn stinkin' cute!

My husband and I love the Egg Bowl, and we go every year! This year, we decided to take the whole family to cheer on the Dogs!! It was super fun for each one of us! Grayton knows what's going on during the game, so he really enjoys it!! Riley Kate cheers no matter who scores, but she does say "Go State" and "Go Dogs" and she gets so excited!! Brantley slept through 90% of the game and would have probably slept through the whole game had I not been cheering so loudly, but he was no trouble at all!! They're already Lil' Bulldogs at heart!!! :)


All 4 of the little ones! Attempting to get this photo was hilarious!!

Such a princess!!

So funny-Riley Kate got my camera and took so many random pictures!
Attemptimg to get some family photos!

We had a great Thanksgiving! It's always so wonderful to spend time with family and have lots of delicious food too-haha! We have so much to be thankful for every day!

Turkey Cupcakes

Whenever the kids are out of school, I try to have fun activities for them to do, so they won't get bored. We made turkey cupcakes one day during the Thanksgiving Holidays with our little friends. They turned out really cute and delicious! The kids had fun, and the mommies had fun visiting!!

Zoo Trip

Mimi Simpson and I decided to take all 6 kids to the zoo before the weather turned cold. I know what you're thinking--crazy, but it was a really great trip for everyone!! The kiddos had so much fun, and all the walking wore them out-haha! I always love going to the zoo, and we can't wait to go back!

Stone Pony Field Trip

Brantley and I tagged along on Riley Kate's field trip to Stone Pony. The kids got to help make a pizza, and then they got to eat it--by far, their favorite part!! :)

MSU vs Kentucky

We tailgated on Halloween at the MSU vs Kentucky game. It was so wonderful, and everyone had a great time, as always!!


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.
