MC's church dress

MC sported her new green dress from the Nelson family to church last Sunday. So stylish! Here she is admiring the fish rattle hanging from her playmat.

Checking out the new Jackson Whole Foods.

A delicacy

John finds that dipping his sucker into the jelly on his PB&J lunch makes for some sweet eating. How did they find suckers before lunch? No idea.

Country life

John, in contrast to his brother, finds the country life invigorating. So much so in fact, that he has taken to arising before 6:00 a.m. the last several mornings. His first morning back in Vicksburg was no different, alas. Let's hope he adjusts back to city life soon!

Wiped out!

All that play in Pontotoc left David completely worn out. This picture was taken around 6:30 p.m., and he did not awaken until 7:30 the next morning!

Leaf pile fun

Undoing Dad's hard work...

Sunday, February 16, 2014

Best. Game. Ever.

It's called Tire David Out. Here's how it works: M.A. pulls the tiny, leftover (and half-frozen) turnips from the greens patch and places them in a pile down near the garden. David then fetches one (sometimes two) turnip at a time and runs up to the top of the dam to throw them, with great fanfare, into "that beautiful lake." He refers to the turnips as "eggs," and this video is of roughly the sixth round trip. It's also the first such trip wherein he did not sprint the entire way. Needless to say, he was asleep before 8 p.m. tonight!

She did it!

Mary Claire rolled over this morning just before her daddy and brothers left the house, so they were able to witness her new powers. Mama, of course, was packing for said boys and missed it.

Mama, I look silly in this bonnet!

Family Photo

Thanks to Jennie for the remote and MA and Jimmy for the tripod. Now we can take family selfies! We have no idea what John found so funny in the second picture.

King Cake!

We had a king cake for Mary Beth's birthday. Lauchlin, Olivia, and Grady came by for a visit. There was singing. A fun time was had by all.

"Speed. I am speed."

A Cars quote that David whispers right before the big race begins.

Happy Birthday, Mary Beth!

Blue hydrangeas from David, fresh donuts from Sandy (which David loved!). Mary Claire takes it all in, and John helps his mama open all her cards and gifts.

Scenes from the park

David lured John in and tried to grab the highly-coveted cars through the fence, but John was too fast and didn't appreciate the trick. He then mocked David for a bit, with neither of them apparently noticing the end of the fence just a few feet away.

Blue Sunday

Well, we were disappointed for Peyton, but John didn't let it get to him. He was quite happy with the Denver Blue cupcakes that Grady and Ms. Olivia brought over for our Super Bowl gathering.
