Easter Weekend

Last year we started a tradition we hope to continue with our family for years to come. For Easter both sets of our parents travel to Bowling Green to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. Eric's mom and dad had a scheduling conflict this year and couldn't make it, but my family arrived on Friday night. We went back to their hotel to swim and pretty much relaxed the rest of the night. Saturday my brother and Eric went their own way while the rest of us headed to town. After some thrifting and lunch we took Eli to Chuck E' Cheese. As always, it was a major it!

We then came home and cooked hamburgers and dyed eggs!

After my parents went back to the hotel for the night I stayed up late setting the formal table and getting ready for the Easter Bunny.

Eli has been sleeping so amazingly well this week and although it means early weekend mornings, it's a small price to pay!! He woke up at 7:00 Sunday morning and since he isn't allowed in our bed, I lied beside him in the bedroom floor for a few minutes. He put his little arms around me. It was just such a sweet moment. Anyway, we finally came out to see what the Easter Bunny had brought!

My parents arrived a short time later and we took a few pictures before heading to church.

I haven't mentioned it, but I'm pretty much the worse cook in the world. I forgot to bake the ham last night which meant it wasn't ready until 6:00 last night. . .I'm not even lying!! So, I improvised and served deli ham. Ha! We got a good laugh!

It was a delightful Easter weekend surrounded by wonderful family as we celebrated the EMPTY TOMB!!!

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
