Mary Mason's 4th Birthday

Mary Mason officially turns 4 tomorrow, but we had her birthday party this past Saturday. She had a princess birthday and just invited girls to come dressed in their favorite princess dress. We did make-up and nails and they made their own crowns. They ran around, played, and had fun with Cinderella. At the end of the party, Mason let the girls start putting make-up on themselves and each other and it was too cute.

Fun Football Weekend

On Friday, the RV was packed and we were ready to go...Starkville bound! Mason and I took the kids for the weekend, and they had so much fun :). The Scarbrough's and the Lewis' came and tailgated with us on Saturday. While the daddy's went to the game, the mama's stayed back with the kids, and they couldn't have been better. For hours they ran around and played, and to our amazement they never cried, got hurt, got in a fight, or bothered us. Mine went without naps for 2 days and were in the best mood. The best part was how they crashed at the end of the night. We had so much fun with good friends and good food. Can't wait to do it again in a few weeks!!!

Happy Birthday William

William celebrated his 2nd birthday with a petting zoo, and the kids had the BEST time. It was such a fun party. They rode horses, held rabbits, fed a goat, saw chickens, ducks, ferrets, and the turtles had races. Then, they rode a train around the backyard. It was such a fun party, and the kids had a blast!

Happy 2nd Birthday Stratton

Stratton turned 2 on Aug 27, and here are a few pics from his party. He LOVES trains, and I thought his inviations and cake turned out so cute!! He got a John Deere tractor for his birthday, and he doesn't get off of it. It took him about a day to get used to it, but once he did he really surprised us - he is a great driver. When he first got it, he and Mary Mason loaded some of their blocks into it, he took a ride in the trailor, rode his piece of cake around and then ate it out of the back, and then had a little time leftover to play with Leyton.

Best Buds

We have many play days ahead with these two. We've already apologized to all of our neighbors in advance for whatever these boys do in the future. They are just so cute together!

1st Busted Lip

While Mary Mason was enjoying her 1st day of school, I brought Stratton home where he played outside for 3 hours with our dog Sam and had so much fun until this happened. He was running as usual (the child does not walk anywhere), when he tripped and fell flat on his face on the concrete. Right above his upper lip was so swollen and torn up. He cried for about 30 seconds before he started digging in the dirt again. He's tough!!

1st Day of School

Mary Mason started school on Aug 11 :) She was so excited!!! She has such a cute class, and a wonderful teacher. She went right in and sat down with her best friend Allie Harris and waved bye to me. I thought I was going to cry, but I held it together. Stratton on the other hand fell apart when he had to leave. I'm not sure if it was leaving MM, or the new toys he had found...it was definitely leaving sissy.

So Sweet

Mason Grandmother "Gran" came over and ate with us a few weeks ago. The kids absolutly love her. She was so sweet: 1st she read to them, and then MM read to everyone (her version was very different, but interesting)

Slippin Slide

While Stratton watched on the sidelines...

Mary Mason was busy slippin sliding!! Some of the kids down the street got theirs out and they had so much fun!! They were covered in grass and bubbles but having a great time :)


Stratton LOVES trains. One day, he stayed outside all afternoon and kept lining his toys up from biggest to smallest to look like a train. Of course right when he would get them just how he wanted them, Mary Mason would run through and mess them all up, but he was happy to start all over again.

Swimming Lessons

Mary Mason took swimming lessons for the first time this summer. She did great thanks to Mrs. Harriet!!! I'm not sure why, but my videos wouldn't download, so here are a few pics of her. Wearing goggles and putting her face in the water were a HUGE deal, so we're very proud of her.

MM's 1st Dance Recital

Mary Mason took dance lessons from Becky Roberson this year and LOVED it!!! She would never show me what she was learning, so I was really excited about the dance recital so I could see. Mason and I were so proud of her that night - she and all of the others did such a great job. Melissa-Miles sent her flowers and a balloon, Uncle Bubba brought flowers, Aunt Me came from Memphis to see her, and the sweet Antici's brought her flowers too. She felt so special!! Thank you so much Becky for doing such a wonderful job and letting them have so much FUN!
