A Super Day

This past weekend was perfection.  On Saturday we took the girls to Starkville to spend the day on campus for Super Bulldog Weekend.  The weather was perfect and we could not have asked for anything better!  Jeff went to the Spring Football game while the girls and I met Carrie at the Arts Festival downtown.  Later in the day we all went to play with baby Patton!  We then capped off the day with a baseball game.  Yes, we were 4 of the 15,586 to watch our Bulldogs beat Ole Miss in 10 innings!  The largest on-campus crowd in college baseball history!  We ran into my big sis from Chi Omega, Meg, and she happened to have some extra chairback seats.  So we actually got to sit and see the game!  Our girls did great and we stayed the whole time.  The only melt down we had was when Morgan realized I forgot her pom poms at home.  Whoops!  The girls were precious in their outfits RoRo made them.  How lucky are we to have her?  After dinner the girls rode home in their pajamas and we were all worn out by our fun day!

Getting Ready

Morgan and I are ready for the Derby!

A Little Mommy "Staycation"

Last weekend I had a "staycation" in Jackson with my girls...and what fun we had!!  We had really been missing each other so the easiest was meeting in Jackson.  Stephanie and Kathryn live there so it made sense.  We did miss Ashley since she couldn't come!  But we had a great weekend and called her often so she felt like she was there!  We started with dinner Friday night with just us girls...and many margaritas!  Kathryn and I even stayed in a hotel Friday night, complete with our own beds with no kids or snoring husbands!  And the Embassy Suites served us well.  They even had free happy hour which we poured in coffee cups to take it to go!  Haha!  Saturday we all just bummed around town and then we brought the boys in for a date night at Shapleys.  It was so yummy!  Sunday we braved Chuck E Cheese with the kids and had a blast watching them run around.  It was a great weekend and I am so thankful for 14 years of friendship from these wonderful friends.

This picture is perfection.  Not one kid is looking at the camera!  That's what we get for trying to wrangle six kids under the age of 4!

Fun Weekend!

This past weekend was busy busy busy with a whole ton of fun thrown in.  I had to work one day and then Saturday I had both of our fundraisers for the Tupelo Women's Club.  We definitely needed some extra hands to help!  So Mom spent her weekend helping us out and we are so thankful!  But in between our business we found time to have fun and cheer UK on to the final four!  When we were watching UK play Michigan Morgan said she wanted to cheer for the yellow team.  I asked her, "Would you cheer for the Cats or the Wolves?"  Of course she picked the Cats from that group!  After the game she said, "Bad wolf."  Silly girl!  Thank you RoRo for coming to play!

Play Play Play


 Last week Carrie had to stay in Florence for her Spring Break so we decided to go play one day!  We ate, shopped and played at Morgan's favorite playground.  It was a great day!  Later in the week Carsyn and Patrick came by to play too.  Morgan and Carsyn are such sweet friends and play really well together.  But watching Macie and Patrick interact was the best!  It was like they couldn't figure each other out.  They are both used to bigger kids around them so they were shocked that they were the same size!  It was a great week of fun!
 At Trowbridges for lunch...
 ...and ice cream of course!

Let Her Garden Grow

My Morgan LOVES flowers.  I can always buy some and put them in a vase and we both enjoy them.  One day she told me that she wanted to plant a flower garden in the yard.  If you know me, you know that I can't keep anything alive that I come into contact with.  But I thought that we could learn together so off to Lowe's we went!  I decided to start with baby steps and get a container garden together.  Morgan picked out her flowers she wanted and we bought our supplies.  We got home, planted our "garden" and Morgan was thrilled!

Keeping it real: this is exactly one week later

Our Little Angel

We have a wonderful church family at First United Methodist.  It has become a place not just for me and Jeff, but has started to nourish Morgan as well.  This year she was in the Littlest Angels Choir which serves as an introduction to future choirs.  After school she would go and sing for awhile and she loved it!  At the end of their choir they had a performance in our chapel for the families.  It was precious!  Morgan loved wearing the robes and did pretty good!  We were very proud!
