Weekend Recap

We had a great weekend doing a bunch of nothing, and sometimes that's just what you need!  I woke up early with the kids on Saturday, and spent some time planning for a future trip.  I don't want to talk too much about it now, but I know it will be "magical."  ;)

While I was working on the details, Eli played Monster Trucks and watched TV.  When Eric got up we played around the house before running to a greenhouse down the road for plants.  We grabbed lunch at McDonald's, ran a few errands, and cooked a country breakfast for dinner.  

This morning we went to church.  I wish taking pictures of everyone dressed up was as easy as actually getting them dressed. My goodness, it never works out!  Eli hates taking pictures and Eric hates making them with the camera. What you're seeing is the best I can get. 

I have to remind myself that it's not about having perfect pictures, it's about documenting our life, and right now this pretty much sums it all up...CRAZY!!

We came home for a quick lunch after church, then I had to head back for a baby shower.  We're about to have another beautiful girl in the nursery!  I can't wait for Ellie to have a new friend. 

As you can see, the ladies did an amazing job on the decorations!  It really was an amazing shower, and it reminded me of how blessed we are to have such a loving and giving church family.  It also reminded me that I have yet to blog about the shower they threw for Ellie back in January..oops!  I'll get on that!

After the shower I headed home and we worked around the yard while Eli played in the sprinkler and Ellie rocked in the swing.  Both kids were super tired, and I couldn't get anything done.  I gave up, served Roman Noodles for supper, bathed the kids and had them in bed by nine.  I'd say that was the best part of the whole weekend!

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
