Trunk or Treat

Yesterday was super exciting for Eli because he had a Halloween Party at daycare, Trick or Treating at Daddy's work, and Trunk or Treat at church! To prepare for all the fun, I went straight home from work to help put the finishing touches on Eli's costume...which was, by the way, my only contribution!

While Eric was working out a few details on Lightening McQueen, I went to pick Eli up. I let him eat a sucker on the way home...BIG MISTAKE!! It was cute because I kept telling him Daddy had a surprise waiting at home. When I asked what he thought it was, he said "Mckeen!!" I guess we better be more sneaky at Christmas!

Anyway, it took an act of Congress to convince Eli to get out of the car so we could go get more candy. First stop was Daddy's work...

Little man was sneaky and kept trying to take more than one piece.
He would hold out his bag and say "Tweet." That's it...I guess he didn't want any tricks. Smart guy!

Next we headed to Trunk or Treat at our church. Everyone warned us it was a big event, but we weren't really prepared for how big!

I handed out candy while Daddy and Eli cruised town

We ended up running out of candy, so I got to steal a few kisses from my boy before heading home!

Eli was on a MAJOR sugar high, and I think he may have been experiencing some "withdrawal" because his behavior became quite ugly when he was not allowed anymore candy. Needless to say, it was a late night in the Watson home.

Eric worked so hard on Eli's wagon turning it in to Lightening McQueen. I am so proud of the way it turned out, and even more proud of the man who dedicated to much time to making his son happy! I'll post more on the creative process later in the week. Until then, hope you had a SWEET! Halloween!

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
