Sunday Service

Another sketch Joseph did during Sunday service. Now if he would just sketch images that our pastor is talking about like Shadrack, Meshach and Ebednego in the fiery furnace for instance.


Chelsea HOCO17

This Homecoming was a first and a last for these two handsome sons of ours. It was Joseph’s first high school homecoming and Morgan’s last at Chelsea. No dates needed for them to go and have a good time with friends. #HOCO17 #chelseahigh 

3 year Check-Up

This silly monster had her 3 year old well check-up today. It was a much happier visit today than we had a couple weeks ago when she was feeling so very bad from a fever virus. Dr. A was super impressed with Gayley’s vocabulary and funny outgoing personality. She checked out perfectly and is on a healthy tract. Gayley’s favorite part was the card game (eye exam) and was not a fan of the blood pressure cuff squeezing her arm! We think she’s pretty perfect now she’s Doctor certified as well 😉! 

Ortho Consult

This girl is super ecstatic about getting braces! She had her consult this morning and after radiographs, measurements, pictures and exam we had a game plan. She is in for a long haul of palatial expanders and head gear before braces are put on but she will ultimately have straight teeth. #welovedredwards #braces #❤️straightteeth #headgear #braceface 

Elijah’s JEEP

Just look at the beautiful green machine! Elijah is sitting pretty in his “new” 1983 CJ7! We bought it out of California and after waiting a few weeks to find a shipper heading our way it arrived to our delight! It is soooo nice and WAY taller than it looks! The paint job is beautiful and it has the most comfortable seats of all our Jeeps. Trey has already added a few things to it like center console and glove box, soft doors and review mirror. We are so happy for Elijah to have his Jeep, it suits him well!!!

Fever Virus?

Well my nice leisurely day off attending a continuing education seminar at the stunning Grand Bohemian Hotel was abruptly halted when I got a text from the sitter saying that Gayley had a 103.3 temperature. After much texting back-and-forth between our sitter, Trey and I we decided for Trey to go ahead and pick baby girl up and I would meet him at the doctors office. I called her doctor and explained what was going on and they got her right in at 11:00. The crazy thing was that when I dropped her off she was all chipper and fine and then by 8:40 a.m  she had a super high fever so Miss Mindy gave her some Motrin. By the time we were taken back to see the doctor she was jumping around and Little Miss chatty self like not sick at all and temp was 99.5-Motrin working! The doctor checked her over and ears clear, did strep test which was negative even with red throat. She had to have a finger pricked to get a blood sample to which it came back super high white blood count so they were thinking bacterial infection so we needed to get a urine sample. Sweet girl had not eaten nor drank anything all morning so she was not able to TT in the potty so we went to step two and she had to have a bag taped onto her and then a diaper hoping she would just TT in the diaper and let the bag collect it, oh that was so much fun ya know since we are in the prime of potty training and she did not want to TT in the diaper!!! During the course of being there her fever spiked again and so the doctor and nurses were able to see that and re-check her temperature which had gone back up to 103 and she was given Tylenol and then later more Motrin later on. To sum it all up we were there from 11 AM till 2 PM and Gayley jumped all over the pain rating scale. She finally got so upset she did wet and they were able to check her urine which came back normal too. The Doctor examined her from head to toe again and this time Gayley was feeling a tad better and even wanted to drink her juice which earlier she had wailed and protested to not drink. So her test will be checked again in morning to see if anything changes and if not then all is well. She will stay on Tylenol/Motrin alternates and we will monitor her. Praying she will drink more and get her appetite back and that this “Fever Virus” as doctor is calling it will leave her sooner than later!!! 

Ice Cream Party

Happy happy 18th Birthday Morgan! This Mom wanted to throw a party for her nearly grown son and he humored me by agreeing to it. It ended up being more like a dinner party when kids came early while we were fixing supper but we made plenty of sliders as Morgan requested so it was all good. They ate, went on a joy ride in Trey’s new micro truck, played ping pong and indulged in ice cream and sweet fixings to their delight. It was such a fun night celebrating Morgan with his friends. He’s got a great group for sure! Wish I could photo shop in the three other gals that came later but it would probably look like Michael Scott did it! Lol! We love you Morgan, you are such a gift, blessing and delightful son! Happy Birthday to Pawpaw in MS too! Morgan was born on Pawpaw’s Birthday! We love you both so much!

Ashleigh & Austin’s Wedding

We all had so much fun celebrating with Asheigh and Austin at their wedding. It was a lovely beautiful barn wedding. Gayley was in her element dancing the night away as well as Jordan! She kept calling Ashleigh “that girl in her dress-she’s a princess!”. It was so much fun spending time with family on such a happy occasion! #firstgrandkidtomarry #cousinlove #ashleigh&austin #barnwedding #sealthedeal #weddingday #bride&groom  #husband&wife 


This girl. Never a dull moment around here. Here she is “painting” like Mommy while going potty! Pretty good Multitasker if you ask me!
