Red And White Game

Are ya'll ready for more iphone pictures?

Eric worked this morning, so I was home alone with the kids.  We spent the morning relaxing which pretty much included playing's how we roll!  Anyway, we had planned on going to WKU's spring football game with the Adkins, but I had the wrong time.  I thought the game started at 5:30, but it was 2:00. I had already promised Eli that we go, so that meant I had to venture out solo.

Really, the kids did quite well.  They fell asleep on the way, so I treated myself to a Sonic Sweet Tea. My moment of quiet was short lived because Ellie woke up ready to eat.  It struck me funny that I was sitting there feeding my baby in the same parking garage I had used every day as a college student.  It's weird because I still feel young enough to be in college, but the fact that I was sitting in a minivan with two kiddos is a pretty good indication that I'm not as young as I might think!

We were a little late getting to the game, but Eli did a great job being patient while we waited on Owen to get there. I am so excited about the new season.  The boys looked great!  I know Petrino will probably only stay a year-two max- but I couldn't be more excited about what this will do for our program!!

  It was a little chilly, so we ended up leaving after the third quarter and heading home.  The Adkins came over for dinner and we went all out grilling hot dogs. Ha!  After they left, we gave the kids their baths and tried again to have movie night with Eli.  Of course that and the whole bedtime routine turned into World War Three.  Ya'll I'm at my whits end with the kid.  Here to hoping we figure out a solution and FAST!!

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
