lots and lots of FALL

....where has the time gone AND my POSTS??? We are out of school for our week-long Thanksgiving break and I am determined to catch up.....and these are just a few pictures to describe a lot memories!

We went to TATE farms for a quick KINDERGARTEN field trip...quickest ever, due to TORNADO warnings, but oooh so fun, nonetheless!

Not sure there will be a cuter class than this...and I am being SERIOUS...P-r-e-c-i-o-u-s!

Mary Bradford played the Mayor in her 2nd grade play and I am biased, but not sure another 8 year old could do a better job in a more perfect she is with her precious perfect TURKEYS (created by none other than Mrs. Hughes)

and here the Mayor is with one of the most popular people in our house right now Mrs.Hughes....

and her best buds Alyssa.....

Back at Eastwood.....heres Gray at her thankful FEAST dressed in her INDIAN attire (by choice, she could have been a pilgrim....?!) so happy!

Trip to MSU

It's always a Great weekend when we get to load up and head to Starkville! We chose an 11 o'clock game so met Aunts, Uncles, and sweet cousins for a breakfast tailgate before the game. The girls LOVED every minute of it....and even Daddy said he loved coming to the MSU stadium, it's such a great place to watch a game!!! We just may make him a bulldawg yet!!

Open House at Eastwood

It was fun to go see all Gray has done so far in Kindergarten.....even though I am there with her everyday, I loved getting my own special tour of her classroom, and telling me all about what she is learning!
thanks Buggy.....We are so proud of how well you are doing and love you soooo much!


Monday, September 20, 2010's GREAT to be 8!

I always start these birthday posts with "I can't believe it...just seems like yesterday when.....and/or something like that " and YES time does fly....however, I am so happy to say Mary Bradford is quickly becoming the most independent, kind hearted, helpful, smart, caring 8 year old little girl (or young lady as she likes for me to say). Brad and I are amazed daily at all she does and thank God for all he is doing through her.

Mary B. what a gift you are to your daddy and I .....We love you so much and are so glad we got to share another wonderful birthday with you.....

a little run down of how the festivities went......

Mimi and Gandy took she and Gray to a Birthday Eve dinner at the club...she came home and said " it was so cool we had our own private party room"!

then she woke up on the BIG day to her favorite from our local donut shop......

I later headed to Ben Davis for recess and she was so excited to pass these out to her friends....(I couldn't help but wonder how much longer I GET to do this before it's NOT cool??YIKES!, hopefully MANY more)

That night we celebrated with birthday dinner and she got her present from us!

Nana and Pop came in town glad they got to celebrate (of course, camera battery DEAD so no pictures) and stayed next morning for Grandparents day too!

The next weekend came the party....and she designed the invitation all by herself!

she had all her friends young and old to Southern Spirit to flip, cheer, and flip some more!....Even though the party was a little later, this was one excited 8 year old about her birthday! and loved every minute of her party....WHAT FUN!!

happy happy Birthday Sweet girl! We love you bunches!!!

Labor Day weekend

WE started our weekend with a the tailgate party at D-HIGH! The girls and all their friends didn't miss a beat with the band, cheerleaders, and the Chic-fil-A picnic right before game time!!

We then all headed to where the cheer camp girls were a part of the pre-game we are catching a few photos with friends before getting on the field!

They did great! What fun to get to feel like a "REAL" red raider cheerleader!!

so glad Mimi and Gandy came for the show....

and Gray found her new sweet little friend Anna and cheered and played and cheered some more!!

The next few days of our holiday weekend were the annual BYRD BASS GOLF TOURNAMENT (congrats to the AMERICANS for a victory!)so Morgan and I decided to load some of our favorite little girls up and head to Florence to the Marriott for some spend-the-night fun! We fit a lot in to these 2 days...swimming, splash pad, night movie by the pool, HUGE fireworks show, and the girls were all great!
