Mommy's Day Off

Monday was the very first day I have had off of work and been at home. Meaning, I do take off from time to time, but usually I am either travelling or sitting in a waiting room at the doctor office. Neither was the case this time, so Eli and I slept in before running a few errands. These events are in reverse order for some reason, but we'll role with it.

We ended our day with a trip to Wal-Mart, and since this Momma usually grocery shops solo, it was stressful. So what did I do? I tore open the Pop Tarts and let him have it!

Prior to Wal-Mart we went to the mall to see Santa Clause. Sadly, Santa was feeding his reindeer which meant we had to find something to do. Naturally I did a little shopping, but Eli started getting a little antsy, so it was off to where else but Crazy 8...thank you for letting us crash your store to watch Yo Gabba Gabba!!

Finally we made it to see Santa Clause, and he did great! A littler somber, but great! I realize this is a bit early to see Jolly Ole Saint Nick, but I like to set the pictures out every year and want to enjoy this one as long as possible!

So, backing up one more time to lunch. We started our outing with a little playdate at Chick-fil-A. Since moving daycares, we don't get to have our weekly lunch with the Emma and Macy anymore. So it was only natural to make up for lost time. I almost cried when I turned around to see Eli and Macy SITTING at the table waiting for their food, because the last time we met there for lunch they were in infant carriers and looked like this....Be still my heart...time flies!! Especially considering Macy's new sister Abby is this size now. SLOW DOWN !!!

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
