Notice the chocolate and the popcorn can we say we get whatever we want at the football field!
On Saturday morning after the JA game we loaded up (like the rest of the world) and headed north up I-55. Most of the southern half of the world was headed north evacuating from Hurricane Gustav and the other half of the state was headed to Oxford for the opening game for the Rebels. One would guess that we too were headed to Oxford but no we headed to Southaven, yes Southaven to see Elmo and the crew from Sesame Street Live. Yes I think I was bordering on NUTS when I ordered these tickets but at the time he was not scheduled at all to be anywhere else in Mississippi and just as only MY luck would have it the gang will be right here in Jackson, MS sometime during the month of October. But hey we have already seen him right! Well of course we paid more for tickets, gas prices were through the roof but it was so fun! Mary Hampton had a great time..did I mention we were on the 3rd row...so we did have great seats! Everything was fine until Prairie Dawn tried to shake her hand and from then on she had her eye on each of them to make sure they didn't come too close. It was a great time and such a fun memory! The picture of Elmo and Big Bird shows you how close we were to the whole gang!! I would recommend going to see Elmo if they are in your area. It was really a great time!!
Another day on the track at Prep. Mary Hampton's favorite thing to do is to run down toward the cheerleaders and look back at me as if to say Mommy I will be ok and I will be right back. The chase begins to turn her around to get her back into the bend of the track!
I know this picture is blurry but I could not resist. Sitting on the track chewing on her finger, looking at her cell phone while holding her Elmo soccer ball (from Elmo in Southaven of course!)
The girls are always so sweet to love on the kids at the game. Mary Hampton certainly thinks she is something special!! Here are two of her cheerleaders she loves to watch!! Britt and Murray!
This weekend we had so much fun!! The Schultz family game to visit! They came for the game Friday night and then for "Grove South" as Brandt has named our deck during football season. Mary Hampton and Wyatt had so much fun playing together and then we had some other friends over on Saturday. Mary Hampton was in heaven with all of her friends to play at her house!!!!
Sarah Knox Biggs, Alex Summerford, Payne Montgomery and Louis Summerford found themselves a little home in the pool in the backyard! If I could have only been a fly on the wall to hear what in the world these precious children were talking about!!
Louis Summerford and Wyatt having a big time on the swing set! The LOVE having their picture taken can't you tell!!
Mary Hampton had decided it was time to take off the Ole Miss cheerleader uniform and add her boots and no more clothes!! This was too funny to pass up! I can not believe how big my little angel is getting!! She is growing up way too fast!!
Time for a yummy hamburger at Cherokee following the HUGE win against FLORIDA!! Hotty Toddy!!! Sorry no more pictures from the afternoon the game got too great to step away from!!
Are they not two of the most precious little children you have ever seen!!
The night ended with the Summerford, Schultz and Walker families all back at our house. We decided the best thing was to bathe all of the kiddos together. Brandt realized his little girl was the only girl in the mix of these boys!! I feel so blessed to have such amazing friends! I can't imagine what I would do without them!! These boys will all have to be big brothers to Mary Hampton!!

We enjoyed a great trip just before becoming a football widow and only child. Brandt starts football practice Monday and we are back in the swing of football season and ballgames! We are really excited! I am sure we will have lots to post from that!
Thanks so much to Nana and Genny for taking us on a fantastic vacation to the beach!!!
Sweet Baby Girl!! Hard to believe she is TWO!
Long nap after a hard day swimming!!
I love to SWIM!!!
This was the look I got when I would say, Mary Hampton it is time to get out! "no no no no no no mommy!"
No I am not sleepy at ALL!
Am I a priss or what! shopping at the Warf
all sleepy with my daddy on the couch
"Night Night" she would say and lay her head back. If she could have slept at the pool she would have!
