Christmas Eve

After starting our Christmas Eve off by eating Breakfast with Santa, we went straight to Urgent Care for Eric to get seen for his sinus infection that had taken a turn for the worse. He was in there for more than two hours, so Eli and I went across the street to Hobby Lobby and Steak Shake. Once Eric was out, we went to the pharmacy before heading home to get ready for my family.

At one point we had a minor heart attack when I my sister sent me a text saying they were getting off the interstate. Turns out she meant parkway, which gave us an extra hour to get ready. By getting ready I mean me and Eric spruced up while Eli simply REFUSED to wear anything (including a diaper.) All my dreams and money spent on cute Christmas clothes went out the window when I decided that I would oblique in his nakedness since it was Christmas!

When my family arrived we ate homemade vegetable soup before opening gifts together. We also managed to talk Eli into wearing a shirt. As always, my parents were more than generous as were my sibling!!

Of course Eli thought he was pretty hot stuff opening up all the new toys and clothes. Luckily my parents were willing to put him to sleep for us so that we could get started on the toys!

Here are some of the DVDs we'll be watching in the Watson home...

There was also an awesome trace track!

And Santa sure did good with this new ball set!
He also got lots of cars (the Semi is from Gigi and Poppa), a train table, and two train tracks...

Once we got it all get up we were pretty exhausted and went straight to bed dreaming of a happy little boy coming morning....STAY TUNED!!

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
