Pickin' Cotton!!!

I wanted to blog about this last night but when we got home we were exhausted and then this morning I was up at 7:30 getting ready to head out of town, and now I am home trying to rush to get ready for supper with Matthew's family then mom and dad will be here!!
Last night instead of going out to the fair, we decided to go watch Matthews grandpa pick cotton!! Its awesome...its probably one of my favorite things to do around here! I love going out to the farm and watching! Matthew and Jagger rode the cotton picker! Jagger never wants to leave! While the pickers were going, we built a camp fire and roasted hotdogs and had smores! It was the perfect fall night! The only bad thing was that after awhile of being out there my eyes were itching and my nose was running! Stupid sinuses! :) We had a blast and I got some awesome pictures! - can't wait for more nights like this!

Hope everyone has had a blessed Friday! ;)

Delta Fair!

So if you live in the Bootheel or are from here then you realize the importance of the Delta Fair parade!! Not being from here I did not realize how many people come to this! I mean the town shuts down and people start sitting there chairs out the day before!! hahhah and I am pretty sure I was driving through town and people were sitting in their chairs at 3 and the parade didn't start until 6!! It is almost the highlight of the year! It is exciting! I have even grown to love it! The fair parade and fair is sort of like the kick-off to fall! After the parade, we head to the fair for all the amazing food!! The food here is awesome, and I really enjoy getting to see everyone! Last night, I had an awesome fish sandwich and then we split some nachos! and my favorite part....dessert - a funnel cake with chocolate drizzled over the top!! amazing!! Tonight we are going to go and let Jagger ride some rides and eat some more great food! I will have to spend extra time on the elipitical to make up for this! :)
getting ready for the parade!!

Matt's grandma always bring food and drinks!!

The sirens were very loud!! When they started the sirens he said, Mommy they are shooting at us!! ;)

Love this guy!! ;)

the best part of the parade- picking up candy!!!


2011 Delta Fair parade!
Hope everyone has a blessed day!

Vacation Recap: Day 3!!

Tuesday the 20th - I woke up on this morning not having a clue what time it was! Our condo was so dark because we had pulled all the curtains, so when I looked at the clock and saw that it was 9:30am - I was shocked! I couldn't believe we had slept that long! I guess we were super tired! Matthew and I went out on the balcany to eat breakfast and just watch the ocean! I loved getting to sit there and drink my amazing cup of coffee taking in the beauty of God's creation! God is so amazing! Finally we got Jagger up and headed to the beach around 10:30! We rented a chair and an umbrella (after 2 days of paying $25 a day we decided to go buy a 7.99 umbrella and just use our towels on the beach!)....I was so ready to read and soak up some sun!! We stayed on the beach until 1:00 and then we went up to the room to eat some lunch and give Jagger a break from the sun! After lunch we went back down and stayed on the beach until 5! Instead of going to eat at that night we stayed in the condo and cooked supper! Jagger had a blast! For us, we figured out that going out to eat is fun but it is not worth the money and time...Jagger is normally miserable while we are there because he can't sit still and then me and Matt don't get to enjoy our food because we are having to cram it in our mouths! Jagger was much happier staying in the condo! We did venture out to get ice cream! We got ice cream at a really neat place called Scoops! It is all Edy's ice cream! and they give you alot of it! YUMMY! Jagger was asleep by 7:30 that night and slept the whole night! He was worn out!

Hope everyone has had a blessed Tuesday!!!

Vacation Recap: Day 1 and 2!!

Hey everyone! I am so excited to be back at home and get back to the "norm"! We all fell asleep early last night- exhaustion had set in! Today was Matthew's first day of his new job! I was so happy for him.....He looked so handsome this morning!! I almost ask him if I could take his picture! hahah...First day of work picture- He would have thought I lost it! anyways....warning= these post maybe alittle long because I will write and do pictures!

Sunday the 18th - I got up and went to Sunday School...I was glad that I did because I got to talk to Jen and see her before we left! Before I left for church I ask Matthew if he would have Jagger ready and make sure the rest of the car was packed because after church we were going straight to lunch with his family! I get home around 10:45, walk in the door and guess what I find? Toys in the floor and Jagger is a bubble bath playing like he is Santa Claus! I was like WHAT in the world are yall doing? Its a good thing Jagger is so stinkin cute because it just made me smile! It was funny because at church Matthews grandma told me I would come home and nothing would be done! and she was right! Panic started to sit in....I was running around the house like a crazy person! I got the bed made, got Jagger out of the tub and clothes on and put up toys in less than 15 minutes! Wow...what you can do when you become a mommy! ;) By the time we got in the car I was sweating like I had ran a mile! After lunch, we went to Matt's grandmas house to eat birthday cake (we were celebrating her birthday) and then it was time to get on the road! We got on the road at 1:30!  Instead of driving the whole trip, we drove to Starkville, MS to spend the night with my sister-in-law..I am so grateful she let us stay with her because it made the trip much easier on Jagger! We made it to Starkville around 5:30. Jagger did great on the trip there...He watched a movie, took a short nap, and played with play-doh! (This kept him entertained for a long time!) When we got to Charlyn's, we put our bags in her apartment and then went to eat! After we ate, she took us to the Mississippi State campus to show us around! It is awesome!!! such a pretty campus! Jagger had a blast running around and he loved her office! After seeing the campus, we went to Charlyn's and just hung out! Jagger and Char played with tractors and play-doh! We finally went to bed around 10:30!!!

We had to get their picture by MCCool!!!

He loved the fountain!!
Monday the 19th - woke up at 6:00am! Threw on some clothes, put our bags in the car, gave Charlyn a hug and headed out!!! We made it to Orange Beach at 12:00! It worked out well because Jagger slept most of the way! When we made it to the Condo, check- in was not until 3 but since they were not busy we got to check-in! We were so excited! As soon as we got in our condo and Jagger saw the ocean from the balacany he was ready to go! We had to run to the grocery store to get a few groceries before we went to the beach! Jagger and Matthew were not happy with me about that but they got over it! and plus it was done! We got back to the condo through on some clothes and went to the beach! Jagger was jumping up and down and squealing! It was nice....not crowded at all!! We have decided we will go in September every year! Jagger loved the waves.. We stayed on the beach for several hours then we decided we would go eat supper! We went to The Oyster House. It was pretty good! I got stuffed flounder and it was really good! After supper, we went back to the condo, changed clothes and went crab hunting!! I had never been crab hunting and did not know what I was getting into! I had been on the beach at night before but never with a flashlight! I was so shocked at all the crabs!! I was terrified! Crab hunting is not my cup of tea! The boys caught 3 crabs...One was a BIG one..and Matthew let it go from the net and it took off after me! I was screaming and running around! I think I almost had a heart attack! It was not funny at the time but we have laughed so hard about it! Matthew said I looked like I was tap now Jagger says that Mommy can tap dance! hahahha.. After all that excitement we were ready for bed! We all passed out around 10:30 and did not move a muscle all night long!!!!

Hope everyone has a blessed day!!!!!
