Select one of your .tex documents and do a Get Info… (Cmd-I). Down the list there should be some sort of Open With… section with a popup menu. Clcik on that popup menu and select TeXShop and then click on Open All Documents Like This. The wording maya be different since we are on different versions of the OS.

Good Luck,
