An Outta The Park Party

Yesterday was the much anticipate Baseball Birthday Party, and my little three-year-old was beside himself with excitement.  Last year I had surgery the week of his party. This year Eric had been in the hospital and I was recovering from a sinus infection...what the heck?

Despite all the chaos, I was thrilled his party came together in the nick of time. 

Eli looked so dashing in this baseball attire. 

We decided to serve concession stand goodies like Popcorn and Cracker Jacks. 

Of course no baseball outing is complete without Big League Chew.

I was beyond thrilled with the cake was both beautiful and delicious! 

Eli was so excited to hear everyone sing to him and cheer when he blew out the candles.  

Of course my mom was a Baby Hog and took over Eli's little buddy, Griffin!

Oh goodness, how he adore his cousin!

Eli cracked me up opening presents.  He would talk to everyone, sip on some Sprite, read the card, and them slowly open everything...precious!

Eli was blessed with so many wonderful friends and family to celebrate his big day, and he loved each and every gift...TRUST ME!

There were three major things on this list this year 1. A Helmet 2. Race Track 3. Franchesco Of Italy.  Just look at this sweet face when he opened the race track...pure joy, my friends!!

While he was admiring the much desired toy, he got another big surprise...Franchesco!

Please note that we did not make him wear the helmet, although I am proud that he takes safety to a whole new level...ha!

After opening all the gifts, we watched The Sandlot on the outdoor projector thus ending our Out Of The Park Party!!

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
