The Best Way To Spread Christmas Cheer

It's the first weekend in December which only means one thing...The Christmas Festivities begin!!

As per usual, ours started off at the Bowling Green Christmas parade where Eli was greeted by Big Red.

We also ran into Jimmy Deemer who makes the best BBQ in Bowling Green!

Every year the on-air talent at my station are in the parade.  Lucky for me, they let this sweet boy tag along.  He rides in the stroller and yells, "Merry Christmas," to everyone in the crowd. 

He loved the attention and his Momma! Sweet boy!

After the parade we went to Historic Railpark and Museum where Eli got to play in the gift shop and see the model trains which were part of the Festival of Trains.

Unfortunately, I had a little scare with the pregnancy that landed me in the hospital shortly after.  Everything is perfectly fine, so please don't worry.  I'm just glad that Tina met me to take Eli so that I could have everything checked out.  

I got bored in the hospital, so I tried to document the whole experience.  I wasn't there too horribly long which was nice.  The nurse also took the time to get me registered so that delivery day would go smoother...yay!

After the hospital I met back up with Tina and the boys at Chick-fil-A.  Then we made a Kohl's run before heading home.  After a disastrous attempt at a nap we gave in, ate a family dinner at a Mexican restaurant  bought outdoor Christmas lights and headed home.  

Minus the whole baby scare, it was a wonderful way to ring in the holidays!

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
