Just wanted to share a few cute photos from the Christmas photo shoot. They had so much fun...sweet little smiles!


Thanksgiving weekend we woke to CHIP the Elf at Doc and Cheri's house! What a fun surprise! Not really sure they understand that CHIP is the one in charge of telling Santa that they are naughty or nice but it sure is fun to see what he gets into at night while we sleep!

Thanksgiving 2011

We had great Thanksgiving weekend in Soso...4 days! That included lots of fishing, cow feeding, pecan picking, eating, the movie "Arthur Christmas" and a baby shower for baby Braden!This sweet baby was born on Thanksgiving day! She couldn't stand up yet and was so soft and fluffy!
These baby boys were twins!! Had to take a picture of my twins with cow twins!! So cute!
Riding in the truck getting ready to feed the cows!
Picking our own pecans! This was a good pecan year...these trees were planted at the old home place(where my dad grew up) and I can remember as a child going out and picking pecans, cracking them, eating them but best of all mom making pecan pie!! Now my sweet babies can join in...they aren't pecan eaters yet, but they enjoyed finding them...kinda like an Easter Egg hunt!
I love this pic of Wesley and Mahlon and the huge pecan tree...so sweet!
Riding in the back of Doc's pick-up!
Her favorite thing to do...feed the cows!

Family Date Night

Disney on Ice was in Jackson and we decided to Surprise the kids with tickets! They had no clue where we were going...only that Mickey and Minnie would be there with some friends! We had a dinner date at Sal and Mookies and had pizza and ice cream and then headed to the show! They loved it!! I don't think they moved until intermission and then they wanted to know when the movie came back on!!

Their favorites were Peter Pan, Tickerbell and Captain Hook! They pretend to be pirates with daddy and he is Captain Hook. so it was a treat to see the real Captain Hook! Their little faces lit up!!

Lilo and Stitch, The Lion King, and Mickey and Minnie with lots of friends were there too! They LOVED the night and can't wait for them to come back! I can't wait to take them to Disney World!!

November 6, 2011 was the official groundbreaking ceremony for our church! We are so thankful to be a part of such a wonderful church plant! We are charter members and have loved seeing how much our church has grown and we are so blessed to be surrounded by such a loving church family. We have seen many changes in the past 5 years...meeting in a cafeteria, gym, movie theater, auditorium and we finally will have a place to call home!! What a JOY to be a part of something so special!

Not sure Mahlon and Sara Beth really knew what was going on but they sure did love playing in the dirt! And they refused to be in the group picture!! OH WELL! At least I snapped a few them together!

Keep our church family in your prayers. This is just the beginning of the wonderful things the LORD has is store for Madison Heights Church PCA.

MC football

Wesley took Sara Beth and Mahlon to a Mississippi College Football game today! They had the best time and daddy got a lot of cute pictures too! They sat right up front in the middle of the action(aka the cheerleaders!) Sara Beth Cheered her little heart out!

While Mahlon watched!

In fact she was such a good cheerleader she got to cheer just like the big girls!
But if you ask her about it she'll tell you she was just a little shy!

Then daddy took them to the big coliseum where he played basketball. Mahlon walked in and his eyes got really big and he said "Dad, this is AMAZING!" So now Wesley can't wait to take him to a basketball game! They ran and played all over the court and then stopped to pose for a pic for daddy!

This one is Christmas card worthy...I think it is soooo sweet and they look so much alike! Love it!!

Happy Halloween!

We had such a fun Halloween this year!! All week Mahlon and Sara Beth kept asking what we were going to be for Halloween??? Wesley hasn't dressed sometime when we were dating 8-9 years ago so I never imagined he would do anything. I however planned on being a black cat or wear a dress and a witches hat...something easy. The day before Halloween I decided I would make use of an old bridesmaids dress and be a princess too (just like princess Sara Beth)We have multiple tiara's, throw in some sparkly jewelry and voila a princess costume!!! Now the morning of Sara Beth asked her daddy what he was going to be...of course he said I'm not sure, thinking he could get out of it!! A few minutes later she says "Daddy, will you be my Prince?" He could never so "no" to her blue eyes looking up at him! So the babies and I went to Party City to see what was left...and we came home with a child's King costume! HAHA!! And Wesley loved it!
So here we are...Introducing the Royal Day Family!!

We had several families over for pizza prior to Trick-or-Treating!
And of course Sara Beth was the only princess! Sara Beth, Austin, Collin, Mahlon, Brycen, Tristen and baby Caleb

Our first house of the night even had their puppies in costume!

Madison Heights Fall Festival

Sunday October 30 was Madison Heights fall festival. It is such a fun time of fellowship with sweet friends! This year we had the first ever Chili/Gumbo cook-off which was delicious! There were so many activities...bounce houses, pumpkin painting, face painting, a hayride and list goes on! One of my favorites was the photo cut-out...because Wesley and I made it!! I think Mahlon and Sara Beth were more proud than we were! They kept saying "Mom, I like your punkin" so sweet!!

Family Photo

Painting Pumpkins!

Sitting soooo still for special face...Mahlon got a Sssssnake! and Sara Beth got a beautiful pink butterfly!

Mahlon licked most of his off!!
look at our sweet painted babies!

Having fun on the hayride!

Halloween Weekend

We had a busy Saturday!
We got up Saturday morning in full bulldog attire and headed to the Township in Ridgeland for their festival and enjoyed yummy food from "Sunshine Pizza"(aka Soulshine Pizza) a little shopping, horseback riding, and bounce houses! So much fun!!

Then it was time for our Neighborhood Halloween party! Truck or treating and Tailgating and a hayride!
Our little knight!

This little Cheerleader couldn't part with her uniform to be a princess for the night! I think she may have brought the Bulldogs luck this week! Oh and this is her Mali dog also in costume...she is wearing the lady bug costume that Sara Beth wore her very first Halloween!

Truck or treating with Mrs. Susan!

What a busy day but we had so much fun!!
