Big Bro Bash

I've sorta been a mess this week thinking about our last days as a family of three.  Ellie won't be making her debut until Monday, but the weekend is packed full of company, cleaning, and packing.  So, I wanted to soak up as much time as possible with my sweet boy!

After the show I met Eric at his work to pick up Eli, then he came back the station with me while I finished up a few last minute projects!  After a near disastrous morning, I took Eli to Chick-fil-A to play on the playground while I worked on taxes.  Afterwards he went with me to meet Eric to file.

Eric brought Eli a Root Beer which he enjoyed on the way home.  Once we made it back, Eli played while I prepared for his big brother bash!!  Earlier in the week, Eric and I had gone to the Dollar Tree to stock up on cheap toys for the hospital.

We wrapped them all individually so that it looked like a ton of stuff.  Then Eric stopped on his way home from work to buy balloons and a cake to top off the festivities!

It was pure joy on this boy's face when we started celebrating this upcoming milestone in his life! 

After our little celebration, we headed out to dinner.  Of course Eli got to pick, and that meant Pizza Hut!  He was in heaven enjoying his bread-sticks!

We finished off the big brother bash by hitting up Just Kiddin' which is an indoor playplace for kids.  Eli spent no less than two hours burning off lots of energy. 

Eric was a nervous wreck and kept sanitizing his and Eli's hands...ha!  That's why I call him Safety Sam!

We came home, blew up the air mattress, and watched The Lorax in front of the TV while snuggling with our boy.  It was the prefect way to celebrate our boy and to wrap up our Big Brother Bash!!

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
