We had the MS family over for a BBQ dinner to celebrate Mom/Grandma's birthday. It was a lot of fun and a good opportunity to show the family our new digs!
It was cool for Jackson and Jake to shoot pellet guns in the back (I think a few spiders may have met their maker) and for the girls to tear apart Mailee's room (what comes around goes around, Mai) We all had a great time!
She loves her new teachers, Mrs. Parker and Ms. Brittany. I am thrilled that she likes school so much and is learning a ton! We have spent the week looking for different traffic signs and identifying them by color and shape! So Cool!
(BTW, the pacifier did stay at home! She is a "big girl," at least at school!)
So much has happened in the past month and a half that I haven't had time to update the Blog!
We moved into our new home in Purvis, Mississippi on July 31st! We love the new house and the back deck overlooks a lake. Such a tremendous view, we really feel blessed! Between the view and the kitchen, I am going to get kinda spoiled here.

Today was Mailee's first ever dress-up day at school and anyone who knows Mommy would know that I had to have her dolled-up in theme. This week they were learning about Cowboys and so the culmination of the "unit" was "Cowboy Day."
Mailee was somewhat concerned that she did not have a rope. She learned that cowboys have a lasso and yell, "ya-hoo!" She does the motion and all! Too stinkin' cute!!!

Mailee got Daddy a hammock and stand for the backyard. He loved his gift and was happy to set it up right away! I think this is a gift we all will enjoy ;)~
Also, Mommy and Daddy took an overnight getaway to New Orleans and returned on Father's Day. Mailee enjoyed the monkey and banana Mardi Gras beads she got as a souvenir! What a HAM!
