Showers Of Blessing

I know I've written about this before here on the blog, but we have the most amazing and loving church family.  I have never felt more welcomed anywhere in my life, and it is such a wonderful blessing to be apart of Smiths Grove Baptist Church.

Doing life with our friends and the ladies involved in the Woman's Ministry has been a privilege, and I look forward to seeing them each and every week. As you know, we don't have "family" in town, but we do have a church family, and it is such as sweet blessing. 

Last night the ladies of the church gathered to shower our little lady with love.  I was blown away by the turn out.  I guess when you have a small congregation every gets excited for babies.  

We had tacos for dinner followed by Riley's Cake, and my all time favorite sweet treat...Tea Cookies!!  The decorations were so beautiful...and practical.  I'm going to use the centerpieces  for Ellie's nursery. 

All I can say is Ellie is going to be one well dressed baby. She got sooo many cute clothes. 

We joked that I'll have to change her five times a day just to make sure she gets to wear all of her outfits.  Ha!  Honestly, I'm ok with that.

It was nice to already have all the big stuff like bedding, swings, strollers, and such because that meant we got tons of fun things like shoes, bows, blankets, quilts, and monogrammed everything!!

We had so much fun, and I love that my van looked like pink threw up when I left.

When I made it home Eric couldn't believe that it took four loads to carry everything in.  I can not express enough the gratitude in my heart for the outpouring of love for our family. 

Not only did they shower our sweet Ellie with love, they showered us with the blessing of friendship and a wonderful church family.  I am so, so very thankful.

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
