Elmo Covention

The Watson home played host to this year's International Elmo Convention where Elmos from across the world gathered to celebrate their big, fuzzy, red selves. Here are a few highlights from this year's 2010 I.E.C. event:

Our first Elmo joins us from Topeka, Kansas and is known as for his Hokie Pokie skills. He can often be found doing his jig at skating rinks, children's events and weddings where too much "bubbly" has been served. He's proud to be an Elmo doll and looks forward to making children smile.

Our second Elmo flew in from Miami, Florida but is originally from Lancing, Michigan. He moved to the coastal U.S. to pursue his dream of becoming a Limbo Champion. He has succeeded in his endeavor and now shares his talent by teaching children and vacationers the famous dance. This Elmo loves long walks on the beach, Hawaiian shirts and flip-flops.

Our third Elmo was the tallest to attend this year's convention. He moved to New York City from central Indiana to pursue a career in film but became famous for his modeling ability. He can often be found posing for cameras as he is a male model. His favorite movie is Zoolander and he says he hopes to inspire children to be their best by always keeping up with his ridiculously good looks.

Our fourth participant is Dancing Elmo. He is from Victoria, Texas and got his start by learning how to line dance, although he now enjoys dances of all types. He tends to run low on energy which can cause some frustration in small children, especially toddlers..named Eli.

Our fifth member is Tickle Me Elmo. He joins us from a factory in central Los Angels, Ca where be hit the peak of his popularity in the mid nineties. This Elmo loves to laugh and despite popular belief, this giggling fur ball does not abuse any substance legal or otherwise. When asked, he simply says, "I'm just happy."

Our sixth and final Elmo his a baby by trade but enjoys dressing in his red costume whenever possible. He enjoys paying with the above Elmo dolls, wearing his Elmo pajama, reading his Elmo books, watching his Elmo DVDs and sporting his Elmo slipper ans shirt. He is the man behind this year's convention.

Without Eli Watson, none of this would have been possible.

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
