How Did This Happen?

 I have followed so many bloggers who just stopped writing after the second baby.  I swore I wouldn't do that...famous last words, right?  Never say never!

I actually haven't stopped writing completely, but I have slowed down...a lot!  I just can't find the time anymore.  For starters, I hardly ever pull out the least the real one.  My iphone is just always handy.  Plus, I can add pictures to Facebook or send them to family without having to physically sit down at a computer.   I tried to figure out the whole intagram thing, but I really stink at it.

Anyway, I want to document my resolve to be a better blogger.  I really enjoy looking back on the memories we've made as a family.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I disagree.  Pictures capture a moment, but they can't express the heart.  That's why I love blogging.  Sometimes I look back at old posts and think, "Awe, that was such a fun day."  Then I start reading how hot it was, or how bad Eli behaved, or how exhausted I was. It's funny how we paint rosy pictures in our minds.

All of that to say - I want to remember life that way it really was not the way I wanted it to be...that's why I blog.  That's why I'm resolving to do better.  That's why I'm back tracking all the way to early March to catch you up on our little lives...while it's still semi-fresh in my mind.  You still haven't heard Ellie's birth story for Pete's sake.

Hope you don't find the bazillion posts that will hopefully be going up here in the next week or two!  Until I get started...Happy Friday!!

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
