christmas 2013

Christmas eve started out with a bang for this 14 month old.

A black eye bang! Poor Jonah fell and got a shiner. Memories. 

We went to Aunt Connie's around 2ish for our Christmas Eve get together.
So cute!

Jonah playing in the box

I changed his clothes. He looks so sad here.

Aunt Connie loves Jonah! 
And she cut his hair again! 

Our family

J was getting fussy so Uncle Lyle took him for a ride to calm him.

Christmas Day
We hung out at home till noon then headed to Meridian for more Christmas fun.

Don't you love his socks?

Mimi's great-grand kids!

Jonah is not happy....

On the way home from Nana & Pops, we put in the big boy car seat
I'm a rule follower so he is still faced-backwards. He loved it b/c he is high enough to see out. But he played so hard that he passed out. 

We had our Christmas with my parents on New Year's day
Jonah loves the extended Christmas!

And he is super pumped that he got A Charlie Brown Christmas!

Christmas came and went so fast. We had fun hanging with the families! We are so blessed!

december happenings: part 1

December was a busy month, as always! Jonah turned 14 months. 

Daddy is teaching Jonah how to be a wonderful husband!

We has some friends over to hang out. 
So Eli came and the boys had fun!

Aunt Betsy got J a cute spider man had and tie!

How cute are these boys?!

Time to get pictures with Santa!
Peanut sure makes me look very large! 

Jonah had fun walking around

He is so sweet!

And the Jonah look. We took him away from watching the train so I think he was just taking it all in.

Next up is Eli's 1st bday party
Jonah had even more fun!

Jonah showing off his walking skills

Partying with the bday boy Eli!

Fun times!

The Christmas parties are next. Kyle and I at the Peabody for a work event. 
So this dress is a dress that I've worn to like 5 parties. The only maternity "dressy" dress that I had. So this dress will appear a lot!

Jonah went to Kyle's work party all dressed up like an elf while I went to a bachelorette party. 

Speaking of the bachelorette, her wedding was the weekend before Christmas. I was so excited because it was in Martin where my college is! 
We facetime'd Lisa in England so that she could be apart of Shelly's big day. We all stayed at Cindy and Betsy's parents home right outside Martin.

Shelly married Adam. Her new last name is White. I had a hayday with all the "White" wedding jokes! I'm dreaming of a WHITE Chritmas.  Adam, you're pretty fly for a WHITE guy, and the list of songs continued!
Here is the dress again! 

 My Jackson friends-Holly & Amanda

Peanut is growing!

Shelly and Adam had an inspiration table. These are couples that have inspired them with their marrage. I was so honored when Shelly asked Kyle and I be apart of this table. Such a cute idea. 

We filled out a card with our advice. We were the youngest couple on the table with other couples that have been married for 50 plus years! Like I said, we were so honored and were happy to share what makes us thrive! I do love my Kyle and am happy that we can inspire others! The pressure is on though! HA!!

The Whites!

My favorite picture from the wedding

 It was bad weather after the wedding and Kyle and I could barely see to get back to our baby at the Brasher's house. 
We made it back in the sideways rain. Then played with the babies!

Betsy reading to Jonah

We left Sunday morning and made it in time to eat lunch at my parents church. 
How cute is Jonah and my parents?!

thanksgiving, football, walking, and more

I'm trying to cram all this blogging stuff in to get caught up! So here is what happened in November. Jonah was 13 months. 

Kyle's work sent us to a fundraiser for the DeSoto Family Theatre.

I could not help myself to take our picture on the red carpet!

I was having a big pregnant craving for pumpkin spice pancakes at Brother Juniper's
So we went and I dressed the boys alike for game day! 

The sad news is that they ran out. Why would they do that to a pregnant lady?! But, I had the cinnamon roll pancakes. 2 thumbs up!!!

Then we swung by to see the Perrys and snuggle up with Quinn!

Since Kyle works for a bank, he has all those fun holidays off. Veterans Day was boys day!
Kyle said that Jonah wanted to watch the Dave Ramsey show while he ate his lunch. He looks pretty happy!

Next up: My Uncle Dennis and my dad's birthday are in Nov. We went out to eat to celebrate!
Vicki & Uncle D

My dad not cracking a smile. Maybe that is where Jonah gets it?!

Uncle Jake and Aunt Connie

Granny playing with Jonah

Jonah loving on everyone!

I finally got to go to a football game! 
UT-Martin played U of Memphis. Memphis got beat by us in 2012 and they wanted a re-match! It was a pretty sloppy game. 

Shelly called us and got us an upgrade to the suite! whoo hooo! Good to know people in high places. This happened before to Kyle and the story is hilarious! 
High rollers...

The soon-to-be Whites!
Memphis got their come back. 

Another weekend we went to the Christmas open house in Hernando. 
The leaves were perfect for a photo shoot!

My boys!

And now time for our friends-giving! Kyle already had plans to go to Starkville for a football game. He took Jonah so I could have a break and relax. Nana and Pops did not mind one bit!
I'm already practicing have 2 under 2!

Marianna! She was a great hostess!

Friends-giving turned into a wedding shower. 2 for 1. YAY Adam and Shelly!

food was yummy as always

hanging around

So, Marianna has a man-cave for Andrew and he has a 3D tv. 

 It was amazing to watch Top Gun in 3D!

around 5 months....about 25 weeks

fun with friends! and babies!

We went to another Thanksgiving dinner at my parent's church.
Jonah is so close to walking. He loves to get your hand and walk around. He did that all night with my mom.

Lastly, Jonah had his 1st McCoy Thanksgiving! We had to move it to Starkville because the Egg Bowl was Thanksgiving day. 

And...the night before Thanksgiving, Jonah started WALKING!! Just 4 days shy of 14 months. 
He is happy to enjoy the food this year. 

Grandparents and Great-GrandMimi

Mimi and her grand kids

Jonah loved the food!


Touchdown Thanksgiving!

Kyle and Josh dressed alike AND sat by the food. I should've sat there!

Jonah ready to cheer on the Bulldogs! They won this year and get to go to a bowl game. Happy McCoy family. 

We went to happy hour at Starbucks. The cup is empty but Jonah wanted to look like a coffee guy!
