Weekend Recap

This past weekend we went to Marion to see Eric's parents. With both our families living away it's hard to do a lot of visiting, so we decided to alternate months for traveling. January we went to see my parents, so February we went to see Eric's.

So , Friday after work we loaded up the van and set out for Western Kentucky. Eli was entertained by our DVD favorites and a few suckers. We decided to eat with Eric's family, so we had to stop halfway there to load up on few treats to hold us over...Eli picked popcorn.

Saturday morning we slept in which was much needed! While Eric, his dad and Colby played golf, we ladies (plus Eli) went shopping for shoes. After we got home Eli was excited play with Colby.

Western Kentucky has some amazing BBQ! So, that's what we picked up for dinner. Eli doesn't have the best table manners, so to avoid a total meltdown we let him sit at the table like a big boy. It was so cute watching him eat and interact..he was so proud!

We slept in again on Sunday morning; I should add that sleeping in is 8:00..ha! Anyhew, we spent pretty much the rest of the day outside. Eli loved riding the four-wheeler between us and ended up falling sweet!

He also loved walking the creek bank and throwing rocks in to make a splash. Spending time on the farm together was really special for Eric because he was able to do things with Eli that his dad had done with him.

After another delicious lunch, we showered and packed up to head home. We had a church dinner and needed to be back, so Eric's mom helped me make some bread...AMAZING!! Here is the Watson clan right before we left!

It was so much fun being able to relax and enjoy time with the family. Even the ride home wasn't too shabby.

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
