A Nice Visit

It has been a crazy kind of Saturday around these parts. Radar stayed all night with us and slept in Eli's bed which was the cutest thing ever!  This morning we woke up and took him to the boarding facility for the weekend.  It was so sad, because that is where we used to take Louie.  For some reason Eli thought we were there to pick him up, and he cried when I got back in the car with our old pal.  Please, don't worry because and order of biscuits and gravy cut through the pain.  Ha!

We cleaned and showered when we got home, then we went to meet Eric's parents  in town.  We ran by the Fruit Of The Loom store and had a nice lunch at Penn Station before heading to the basketball game at WKU!

Poor Eli was tired.  He wanted to sit in Eric lap because he could recline, eat popcorn and watch the Toppers play.  Ha...What a life!

You can see how tired he was in this picture, sweet boy.  I didn't have a thing red that fit.  Let me rephrase that, I didn't have a CLEAN thing in red that fit.  Oh well, my Topper spirit shined through!

After the game we hit up the mall where I was able to get a few more things checked off my gift list!  Then it was back to our house for pizza before Nan and Grandad hit the road.  It was a fast, yet wonderful visit!

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
