HOOTY HOO! I MADE YOU!

One of my sweet friends moved to Italy for 10 months and is obsessed with owls! (Yes, she was a Chi-O ...recently graduated). She mentioned wanting a stuffed owl to take with her. So, I was determined to make it happen! I did it and it was so easy and FUN!! We miss you Val! Hope HOOTY HOO is keeping you company!!

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL??

video

We sure are!!! Since today was the opening day of Bulldog football, we got all festive!
Truett loved ringing his bell.

Heston and Mrs. Emily came over to watch since we couldn't get it on cable. Ryan did great getting everything connected to watch the live internet feed on the TV and then the site went down right at game time! Oh well!! We had good eats with good friends!
We'll try again next time!
Proud of our DAWGS for a blowout! Next week will be a WHOLE new ballgame!

Yea for GiGi's cupcakes

BEFORE ... Someone was pretty happy mom went to Jackson with cousin Syd and Aunt JuJu Saturday! You can't beat a chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing and chocolate sprinkles on top ALONG with a STAR!!

He ate most of the icing ... no cake, of course.

Thomas got all 'muddy'! Where's the cupcake? Well, mom didn't get one for herself. So, I had to eat PART of it, right?

WHAT HAPPENED????

AM I on strike? shut the blog down? or WHAT??

Ryan keeps asking so I thought maybe someone else was wondering too! No, no and no ... this is just what happens when you get behind! Hoping to get caught up one day! Any suggestions or encouraging words would be much appreciated! :)

Happy Anniversary to my beautiful Bride

About this time four years ago Kellie and I were on our way from Kosciusko to Flowood in a limo I rented to escort my new beautiful bride to our new home in Flowood. Just six months before I purchased this home in Flowood and we were excited about making it our home. We headed HOME ready to start our new life together. We were also just a little excited about our honeymoon in Belize the next day (man that was an early flight!)

Here's a picture from the beach in Belize!














I am sure that four years ago when Kellie said "I do" she had no idea that very soon our life would change. Just a short time after returning from our honeymoon I got the call from Doug Evans offering me a job as an Assistant District Attorney. We made the decision to leave our comfortable life in Flowood and face the unknown in Grenada, causing her to quit the job she loved, leave great friends and an awesome church. Throughout our marriage Kellie has trusted me to lead her where I felt the Lord wanted us. She trusted me to sell the house she just moved into and pack all our belonging (including all the new wedding gifts) and place them in a storage unit and move into a garage apartment. She was such a team player about it all.

Our first home in Grenada... a storage unit! ha

This of course has turned out to be a great move for us!! God has certainly blessed this move tremendously. We have a great new church. Kellie is exploring the joys of being self employed:) And we have made great new friends, though we really miss our friends in Jackson. We have a beautiful, healthy son who makes us smile every day.

Kellie has been a true gift from the Lord. I do not deserve her but I am grateful to have her in my life. She is patient when I am not. She can calm me down when I am aggravated. She knows how to encourage and pray for me. In short, she is a picture of God's love! As any of you that read this blog regularly, you know that I don't write on here much.... actually i think only once. However, I wanted to take a moment to tell Kellie that I love her and I appreciate all she does to make our life wonderful!! We have had an exciting four years together and I know the years to come will be exciting. I love you!

Me and my beautiful bride!

A BIRTHDAY TO REMEMBER

For those of you who don't know, Truett and I almost share our birthdays! I went into the hospital the night before he was born. So, it makes for a wild month and week at our house. Bless our daddy's heart! He is amazing at making us both feel special!
It all started Thursday with our play date which happened to be our time to host! So, we had a little party since Case also shares a birthday with Truett (the same day). We played outside, had cupcakes on Toy Story plates (of course) and played some more!
Then, Friday was my day! Ryan being the sweet man he is, took the day off! So, I got to go on a morning run all by myself and then we enjoyed a nice lunch at Carmella's (a local Italian pizzeria-so yummy). Ryan's mom and dad arrived that afternoon and we had birthday dinner at 333 Restaurant. Truett loved having his Bebe and Pops at his house! It's so funny how Pop and Pops' get the prize for Truett's undivided attention when around.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET BOY!!



Wake up Baby it's your special day...a day fill with fun and surprises!
My parents always said this line from a childhood book every birthday morning when I was a kid.
I can't believe our little man is TWO!! What a year it has been! Truett has grown into such a little boy over the past 6 months. I see more every day why people tell you children are so great!

Truett, you are such a blessing. We love to watch you run around the house because you're so proud you can RUN! We love your sweet forehead kisses, hugs with a little grunt to let us know you're really trying, high fives after our blessing prayer, you LOVE Toy Story and can quote all THREE, you are funny about what you eat...not much, you love 'scuckers', and more and more. You're little personality is coming out more every day and it's too funny! You are a character trying to act like you're hiding when you close one eye.
We love you more than you will ever know! IT'S TIME TO PARTY!!!



HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY, TRUETT MATTHEW BERRY!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BLUE!

FOUR years ago, I gave Ryan the sweetest pup! He grew up with sweet Cookie as a kid and always talked about how much he loved Golden Retrievers! So, 10 days before we married, I surprised him with BLUE!! What a sweet girl she is! She LOVES Ryan and even more now that she doesn't get AS MUCH attention with someone else to compete with.
Though she drives me a little crazy sometimes, I'm not sure what we do without ole Blue! Truett loves her and I can only image that will get more fun as they both get older!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SWEET GIRL!!

A LITTLE BEHIND...

I can't believe I've gotten so behind on the Berry life since October. I guess KBcreative took over for a while. So, I'll just start where we are now and go backward.
It's February, and Truett is almost TWO!!! Did you hear me?? TWO!!! I can't believe it! I was walking today thinking about how it stinks I didn't blog over the past 3 months because our little man has become quite the character and is so fun! His obsessions, quirks, likes, dislikes, favorites, etc. are all so entertaining and sometimes TRYING!
Maybe that's another reason I'm a little behind!
We've been a little busy chasing an almost TWO year old.
