Birthday Celebrations

Yesterday was a big day for my sweet boy, not only did he turn three...he also celebrated pretty much all day long!  When I got off work I ran to Wal Mart for cupcakes, and thought I was pretty smart for getting both Princess and Cars.  You know, so the boy and the girls would all be happy.  

Then I ran home to clean house before heading to daycare to celebrate with Eli.  This is him waiting on a cupcake to eat. All my planning for gender specific cupcakes was in vain because the teachers took off the rings.  Turns out they aren't safe...oops.  Oh yeah, and the food coloring in the blue cupcakes stained hands, so they all had to switch to white with pink and purple sprinkles...ha!

The teacher assured me the kids would never notice, and they didn't!  In fact, look how excited Eli was that everyone was singing Happy Birthday!

This picture isn't off center, the little girl just tried to jump in last minute...haha!

After the daycare celebration, Eli needed a hair cut.  I think he would rank them up there with getting shots, so I felt horrible making him go on his big day.  But with so many pictures and the party, there was no way I was going to let him look scraggly.Lucky for me, the lady at the hair shop brought out a laptop with Disney Sing Along playing, and the rest is history.  

After the haircut I called my mom to see where they were, and they were almost to Smiths Grove, so we met them at McDonalds for an afternoon snack.  Then we all headed back to the house.  My mom helped entertain Eli while I worked on cleaning.

Once Eric got off work we went out to eat to celebrate...Eli picked Pizza Hut!

My mom took Eli back home after dinner so that Eric and I could go buy presents and get the stuff we needed for the party.  Is it sad that we treated it like a mini date...haha?!

Anyway, we were supposed to wait on giving him the gifts, but in true Eric/Morgan fashion we couldn't stand it.  In fact, as soon as we got home, we wrapped everything up and sneaked it into the family room for a surprise.

He was shocked when he came in to find a room full of toys.  And he as so excited for the "real" batting helmet.  We splurged a little on it since he'll be playing T-ball next year anyway.  Plus, white was perfect for adding this WKU decal!

After opening all his gifts, the birthday boy had to play with them of course.  It was precious watching him, and makes me look forward to this Christmas season!

Needless to say, we went to bed way too late.  That's okay with me, I wanted to soak in every moment and memory of this boy's third birthday celebrations!

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
