Cave Sing

Ya'll know we are the Griswolds when it comes to Christmas...really!  We have so many things we try to pack into a few shorts weeks, and we wouldn't have it any other way!

One of our favorite things to do as a family is Cave Sing.  It takes place at Mammoth Cave National Park.  They have a brass band, a choir, and even a tree for guests to enjoy.  

So we headed that way after church this afternoon.  

As always the Adkins family joined us! Last year when I wrote about Cave Sing I mentioned the incredible things God would do for our families in the upcoming year...and he has!  Parker joined the family in October, so we have loved him tagging along this year!

It won't be long before he is running around with these two.  Poor Ellie will have to be tough with so many boys in the mix! 

Once inside the cave we stopped for the brass band to play.  Eli recognized the tunes and started singing his little heart out.  I'm not sure he was supposed to do that, but it was so cute I couldn't stop him!

Love this boy!

Someone Eric ended up with both Eli and Owen where just on cloud nine.  Boys love caves, momma loves music.  It's a great family affair!

We headed down to hear the choir where the boys did much better than in years past.  Next year Parker and Ellie will be in the mix, and between four kids we may not be so lucky enjoy as much of the performance. 

As usual we jetted a little bit early and took some family pictures.

Our last year as a family of three!

Next began the hike up to the visitor's center where we met Santa Clause and ate cookies.  We didn't linger too long because the boys were ready to play, so the Adkins came over for dinner.  They just left, and I'm sitting here thankful for these memories and their wonderful friendship!

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
