Merry Christmas

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Luke 2:1-14
Gray and I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas! Let's not forget the REAL reason for the season. Happy Birthday Jesus!

Merry Christmas from Mags!

Doesn't she look thrilled? I can only imagine the thoughts going through her head.

A few more pics...

These are a few more pictures of the inside of our house.....yeah, I kind of go a little overboard, but I LOVE Christmas time!

Oh Christmas Tree...

This is our Christmas tree this year! I love decorating the tree! I have to admit I have had it up since the week BEFORE Thanksgiving. My mom has been collecting Christmas ornaments for me since I was I have lots! (I think next year we will have to invest in a bigger tree) But, I love all our ornaments and almost all of them remind me of a special memory.

Happy Fall Ya'll!

I can't believe it's already fall! I LOVE IT! It has been the most beautiful weather this past week! Halloween is right around the corner! Before we know it, it will be Christmas! I know I always say this, but WOW TIME FLIES!!! Anyway, just wanted to show ya'll what I put at my front door last weekend....I thought it turned out pretty cute! ( I always go a little overboard on the pumpkins, but hey, nothing wrong with getting into the spirit, right?!?)

Hope everyone has had a wonderful Saturday! We are headed to The Alluvian in Greenwood this afternoon. I am so excited! Gray called me at work yesterday and told me that we had reservations at Gardinia's and were going to stay thet night at The Alluvian! I love surprises!! Thanks Gray!!

"Here Kitty Kitty"

This is Sophie. She cracks us up!! She is so curious and gets into EVERYTHING!!! These are just a few pictures I (or Gray) have snapped of her. I love my animals!!! Such cheap entertainment!
"Do I smell chicken?"
Somebody let the cat of the bag....

I was trying to study and Sophie kept "pawing" at my pen. Gray just thought it was hysterical!
"Betcha can't find me!"

Sweet Baby Boy!

So I have finally uploaded my pictures from the last 2 months! Look at this sweet baby! This is my best friend, Jana's little boy that I posted about a while back. Hayden was born on Augusth 8th. I can't believe it's already been 2 months!! I am completely obsessed with this child! Isn't he beautiful?!? I am such a proud "aunt"! These are a few pictures we took while out to eat last week (except for the last few...he was only 24 hours old!). And look at those precious "punkin shrippers"...his Aunt Whitney couldn't pass those up at Target! :)

New Beginnings...

Guess what?!?! Mr. Gray got a new job!!! He is going to be a sales rep for GE! (He'll be selling engineering products, etc. - you know, "smart people stuff"!) We are SO EXCITED!!! This opportunity just fell into his lap and he couldn't pass it up. He loved his job with Control Systems, but this is just a better opportunity for us (especially since I will be going back to school full time, hopefully, next year) in the long run. He told his boss it is official! :)


One more thing - yesterday was our 4 year anniversary (well, since we started dating). WOW, time flies!!! These past 4 years have been AWESOME and I am so blessed to now have Gray as my husband! He is my rock! We have been through so much together and I would not have wanted ANYONE ELSE by my side. I love you, Gray. Thanks for 4 wonderful years!! I look forward to 75 more!!!!

Back to School!!!

Hello All!
Well, many of you know that I have decided that I want to go back to school to be a NURSE!! Yep, you heard me.....BACK TO SCHOOL!! I never thought I would ever do something like this, but after sitting behind a desk 8 hours a day for the past 3 years, I've decided I want to pursue my dream. I have wanted to be a nurse since I was a little girl, and I now think I am at a place in my life where I am ready to take on the challenge! I am so excited but so nervous at the same time! I HATE CHANGE! So this is a big step for me. My husband has been more supportive than I could have ever hoped for....he's my cheerleader! :) (I love you, Gray!) I have to take Human A&P I&II before I can apply, so I started class this past Wednesday!! Whoo-hooo! :) I am taking A&P I at Holmes Community College in Ridgeland on Wednesday nights from 5:30 -10:00. (and will be able to apply for school at Holmes in February while in A&P II) When I was in class Wednesday, I was sitting there at my desk listening to the Professor and thinking "Am I REALLY here?" It was such a weird feeling being back in the classroom again!

But I am very excited and look forward to what the future holds! All prayers are appreciated! :)

I love him so much and appreciate him more than he will ever know! And my BEAUTIFUL mother, Caren. She is the strongest woman I know. That woman is about to break some hearts! Go get 'em, Mama!! ha!
