It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around our house :) !! Mary Bishop is loving all of the lights and the gifts under the tree more than I want her too!! She has not been that interested in the tree as much as I thought...she just likes to push the presents all around the house and try to pull the bows off! I keep telling her those are Daddy's but she just grins and continues to sit on top of the present or push it around until someone stops her. She is too funny! We took her Saturday to pick out a Christmas tree at Midsouth Nursery here in Tupelo. She was a sweetie and was obsessed with the "Choo Choo Train" that they had inside. She says "Choo Choo" and it makes me smile....of course everything she says makes me smile. It was a fun weekend at home with our little family. We are so blessed to have a beautiful, sweet, and healthy baby girl this holiday season. We hope your family is blessed as well!

Way Too Long....

Well, we have fallen out of the blog world for quite some time!! It's been way too long!! Not even going to try to catch up just going to post some pictures that should have been put up a long time ago! Update on Miss Priss......she is almost 15 months old and we are still not walking!! She will stand alone forever and side step around walking! Guess like everything else she will do it in her own time. No walking but boy are we TALKING!! This is non-stop!! She talks herself to sleep and talks when she is waking up....all day!!! She is saying words like... "ake" for Drake, "ommy" for Mommy, She has "DaDa" down pat, and "no" of course, shoe, "ap" for map...gotta love Dora for that one...and lots and lots of jibberish...It sure is sweet to hear her voice. We are so truly blessed.

Beach Trip Day 5!

I think Mary Bishop is loving the beach life...we might just relocate!! Would anyone come visit us at the beach?? :) We spent a couple of hours on the beach and then headed to the outlet mall. I must say I have a great little shopper on my hands and I can see us getting into trouble in the future! Just kidding! The girls enjoyed a nice shopping trip and of course Miss Priss won the award for most purchases...but hey, I love a bargain. We enjoyed Destin Commons last night and Mary Bishop loved watching all of the kids in the splash pad! Just year that will be her running around in the water! Wow! We had a late night again but tons of fun and my little night owl is snoozing the day away today! Almost forgot....we attempted beach pictures in all white...she was not in a good mood but she still looked precious in her dress from Gram! We love it! Thanks so much!

Beach Trip Day 4!

We have laughed so hard on this trip at Mary Bishop and all of her "talking"...she loves to stand on the couch and just jabber away to anyone!! Our condo has mirrors everywhere so she has been fascinated at talking and looking at herself. It is too funny to watch! We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at Another Broken Egg. Mary Bishop had grits and orange slices....a site to see! We enjoyed an afternoon on the beach and then headed to SEASIDE!!! We bought Mary Bishop her 1st SEASIDE t-shirt (pink of course). She loved listening to the music and eating a yummy dinner there. I can't wait to actually stay there when she's a little older and watch her riding bikes and enjoying the beautiful atmosphere at SEASIDE! What wonderful memories!!

Beach Trip Day 3!

Another eventful day on the beach! The girls played on the beach all day while Ben and Uncle Alan played a round of golf. Mary Bishop was awesome!! She loved her little pool that Aunt Cysha gave her and she played in it all day long!! I was able to walk with her on the beach in the late afternoon and have her fall asleep to the sound of the waves on my shoulder this time :) !! We enjoyed a great dinner at Stinky's Fish Camp although it was a little late for the princess. We are having so much fun and we hope you are enjoying our pictures.

Beach Trip Day 2!

We had another wonderful day at the beach. It was cloudy yesterday afternoon so we decided to head with Cynthia and Alan to Grand Blvd. to do some shopping and to check out the Tommy Bahama Bar. Mary Bishop was so excited that Aunt Cysha and Uncle Alan were here to entertain! After the Grand Blvd. we headed to Baytowne to eat at Acme Oyster Bar. It was sooo very good! We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and Mary Bishop loved checking out the boats on the water. Hope you enjoy our pictures from day two! ** posting pictures of MB falling asleep on Ben's shoulders for two days in a row!! What a sweet site to behold!

Beach Trip Day 1 !

What a wonderful first day at the beach! I was really scared that we might not even see the beach this trip....boy was I in for a pleasant surprise! We headed down to the beach first thing this morning and set up a playground under the umbrella. Mary Bishop did very well playing just like she does at home. We decided to walk down the beach to enjoy the beautiful weather and she loved looking at all of the people in the ocean....she's a bit nosey I might add...hmmm wonder where she gets that?? The water was beautiful today and the sand was white as snow. Mary Bishop seemed to be very relaxed, as a matter of fact too relaxed. She fell asleep on our walk on her Daddy's shoulder! You should have seen me running like a mad woman to get our camera. It was too precious not to capture. We are having so much fun! We look forward to many more days of beautiful weather and great times!! Enjoy the pictures! ( I'll TRY to post daily)

Ben's Birthday Cookies!!

Ben celebrated his 28th birthday on June 20th. Mary Bishop and I wanted to do something special, so I asked Shannon Willcutt to bake some of her precious cookies for us. They could not have turned out any cuter. Thank you so much Shannon for your darling ideas. We look forward to eating many more Cookie Mama cookies! P.S. The little lady bug represents our sweet Mary Bishop, because she is her daddy's "little lady." ** Forgot to mention that Shannon is having a cookie give-away so check out her blog by using my cookie mama button! I hope I win the give-away though!! :) love you all!

Playing Dress Up!

I took a few pictures of Mary Bishop one afternoon while I was attempting to clean and organize her closet. I just had to put this tutu on her and she her reaction. She surprisingly didn't mind it at all! Too funny and too cute! She is my little baby doll and I love playing dress up with her! Hope she really does want to wear a tutu and take ballet one day! Enjoy! :)

Our First Swim!

Mary Bishop and I were able to spend a couple of days with my mom a.k.a "Granna" while I had my car fixed in Columbus. We had a few hours of beautiful weather so I just had to get Miss Priss in the swimming pool. She was a little unsure at first but ended up loving it! I can't wait for us to have some pool time with Daddy too! We missed him lots while we were gone! We were sure to take some pictures for him so we hope you all enjoy! Happy Summer Everyone!

Mary Bishop at 8 months!

Where to start?? I have been so busy with the end of the school year that I have neglected to blog! Well, summer is here and I plan on playing catch up on the blog site! So much has happened that I'm sure I'll leave something out. I'll try my best though!! Our little angel is 8 months old now! So much has happened this week that is has made me think I'm so not ready for our little girl to grow up so fast!!! She is now crawling, sitting up, and Ben and I found her on her knees in the baby bed last night. Needless to say, we had to lower the crib and it broke my heart!!! She is so much fun and has really gotten a little personality :) ! She loves drinking water from her sippee cup....she thinks it's funny when the water is really cold and runs down her shirt! She is saying "dada" all day long and other precious sounds. She thinks she is really saying something! She is the light of our lives and we hope you enjoy the pictures!!
