Family Pictures

I always get a little sentimental this time of year and start going through old pictures, and usually you get to witness this trip down memory lane with a look at Thanksgivings past.  Now, before you breath a giant sigh of relief, I'm not letting you off the hook completely.

Instead I'm showing you a few of our family portraits from years past.  The reason is two fold.  One - I want to reminisce.  Two - my cousin is doing our pictures this weekend and I want to make sure we do something fresh!!

My goodness how we've changes.  I look older, Eli looks bigger and Eric, well, Eric never seems to change. By the way, this was taken in March 2010.

This was taken only a few months later in August 2010, but I think the sunlight did wonders for me!  Ha! It's still one of my favorites!

Finally, we come to September 2011, and I just can't believe what a difference a year makes.  Eli looks so much more grown up!

As I mentioned, this weekend my cousin will once again share her talents with us!  We couldn't be more excited.  She is so good with Eli, and it makes all the difference in the world when trying to get a good shot or two.  

As for colors this year, I'm thinking red and black.  Maybe it's because I'm in the holiday spirit, or maybe it's because between WKU and UL that's about all the colors Eli and Eric have to their wardrobes. Ha!  Either way, I know they'll be great because Heather is so wonderful.

P.S. This will be our last family portrait as a clan of three.  Sigh!!  


  1. Cute family! :) we are doing family pictures tomorrow too. And our colors are red, grey, and black. Great minds think alike!

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
