Weekend Wrap Up

We had a super low-key weekend around the Watson home.  It was the last before the holiday season starts.  I know the rest of my pregnancy is going to go by so fast because we'll be so busy with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.  Then, we'll actually start getting ready for Ellie in January and seeing as I haven't even cleaned out the playroom or picked out bedding yet, I think I'll be insanely preoccupied! 

So for now, I'm trying to soak up every minute of our time as a family of three. 

Friday night we were going to have a Gobble Wobble party.  We made Turkey Pizza and Turkey Cookies.  The plan was to watch Open Season, but we ended just hanging out instead. 

Saturday started with some late morning snoozin' and a big country breakfast.  Eli loves biscuits and gravy, so he was enjoying the quiet morning.  

Eli stayed in our PJs while Eric worked outside.  Even though it was a pretty low-key day, I was very productive.  I did about a zillion loads of laundry and finished cleaning out Eli's closet.  I was able to separate everything and get it boxed away.  It was an all day job. 

While I continued working, Eric took Eli to the Lego Party at our Library.  He was excited, but of course his attention span is so small that they didn't get to stay very long.  Oh well, memories are memories. 

Saturday night we stayed home and finished our projects before the WKU game.  It was a heartbreaking loss, and I actually scared Eli one time from yelling at the TV.  The officiating was horrid!  Not to mention the fact, that we made some boneheaded plays.  RRH!  Oh well, both the men's and women's basketball teams won their games, and the volleyball team won the conference championship.  Way to go tops!!

Yesterday before church I wanted a picture with Eli, but he insisted on it being silly.  This is the best we got.  We ate a local diner for lunch and then headed back home.  Eric had to finish a project outside, so it was just me and Eli.  To say he tested my patience is an understatement. I was just really uncomfortable with the pregnancy and he was really whiny, and thus, it was a bad combination.

Oh well, it was still a great weekend!

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
