A Great Memorial Day with Family!

So, I am just going to start from this date forward. It will be to difficult to back track the last two and half years.....

Yesterday was Memorial Day. Hailey and Kelley started off their day by taking a nice morning walk before Mike woke up. After our walk, we came home and fixed Dad a nice breakfast: eggs, bacon, and his favorite biscuits. After breakfast, we went out in the yard and picked up the remaining sticks in our yard. (Papa, Mike's dad, cut down two dead trees in out backyard, while creates ALOT of sticks to pick up) After we picked up the sticks, Kelley mowed the backyard that was starting to grow out of control. Then it was lunch time, and Hailey took her nap.

When Hailey woke up from her nap, she apparently woke up on the wrong side of the bed, because she did not want her diaper changed and threw the worst tantrum yet. It was a full out two year old tantrum, screaming and flailing around on the floor. Anyway, after we FINALLY got that under control, we began to get ready for our family to come for a Memorial Day Grill Out. Except this year, it was a Grill IN because it was raining. JJ (Mike's mom), Uncle Chris (Mike's brother), MiMi (Kelley's mom), Grandaddy (Kelley's dad), and GiGi (Kelley's grandmother) all come over to have dinner with us. We had a great time. Hailey entertained us with singing and dancing while Mike and Uncle Chris were grilling, and Mike entertained us with his stories from work.

I wish I took pictures to share, Sorry!

Beginning a blog....

Hello everyone! We have just decided to make a blog. Hopefully through this blog we will be able to update you on our lives by sharing stories and pictures. Alot has happened in the past several years.

First, Hailey was born January 3, 2006. It's hard to believe it was that long ago.

Hailey Grace Jones

She is 2 1/2 now and is learning and growing everyday!

This past year Hailey attended preschool at Westminster Toddlers and Twos three days a week. She LOVED it. She made lots of freinds and came home talking about her freinds and what she did at school everyday. Hailey is finished with school for now, but will gp back in July for two days a week for three weeks.

Mike is busy busy! Besides being a husband and daddy, he is currently interning with Vanderbilt Football and working at Target full time as a "Target Protection Specialist". He is currently set to graduate in August with his Bachelors Degree in Recreation Administration. He will soon be looking for a new job.

Kelley is busy being a mom and wife. She is currently taking a summer course (although it will be completed at the end of this week) in Abnormal Psychology. After the completion of this class, she will be out of school for the summer and is looking forward to spending more time with Hailey. Kelley is set to graduate next August (August 2009) with a Bachelors degree in Speech Pathology. She will then proceed to graduate school to earn her Masters in Speech Pathology.

We also bought a house about a year ago. And are LOVING it!! Here is a picture:
