Jesus Love The Cardinals

Ya'll know that Eric has brainwashed our child into liking the Louisville Cardinals, right?  I mean I grew up in Cat country for crying out loud!  It never once dawned on me that my child would be one of "those" fans.

I always joke that I was more worried about telling my Momma that Eric was a Cardinal fan than I would have been about telling my daddy that he wasn't Southern Baptist.  Lucky for me, he is at least one of those things...a Southern Baptist! SHEW.

I should have known when our wedding cake was a "house divided" this could be bad.  I mean we aren't of the same political party affiliations either, but those conversations are much more civilized than ones about sports. Ha!

Anyway, sense I don't give two hoots about basketball, I let Eric brainwash our son.  Eli is obsessed with the Cardinals and will not hear of any other team (especially the Cats.)

So last night on our way back from the restaurant my brother had Eli in a tizzy talking about the Cats.  The two argued the whole way home telling stories about Cats eating Cardinals, and trains running over Wildcats.  I won't lie.  It was a little gruesome!

Clay even turned the fight song into a chant about the Cats.  This sent Eli over the edge to which he started singing his own little ditty to the tune of  "Jesus Loves The Little Children."

"Jesus loves all the Cardinals."  

That my friends is what you call BRAINWASHED!!  I'm not sure how Biblically sound this claim is, but it sure was cute, and for the record, I have been converted slightly.  I will cheer for Louisville as long as they are not playing UK.

I think that's what Jesus would do.  Ha!

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
