And So It Begins

Ya'll know that we are a house divided.  I'm from Lexington, so I naturally cheer for the Kentucky Wildcats.  Meanwhile, Eric went to University Of Louisville before transferring to WKU.  This makes him a Cardinals Fan.  The trouble is, this can be problematic at times. Ha!

Eric has succeeded in brainwashing our son into becoming a Cardinals Fan.  So much so that he sings songs like, "Jesus Loves The Little Cardinals," and he named our Elf On The Self, Peyton Siva.  It's sad, ya'll!!  

Well, I'm trying to raise Ellie up right as a Cats fan.  Ha!  My family has joined my efforts, and they're keeping me well stocked with plenty of UK gear. 

It makes Eli madder than an ole wet hen to see Ellie dolled up in blue.  This is a picture of them on Sunday representing their teams.  As you can tell, the family rivalry continues, at least for now.  I'm sure my boys will somehow end up convincing her to wear red.  

Of course, that's all fine and dandy, unless it's a match-up between the Cats and Cards.  Then it would only be fair to keep playing fields even, which means Ellie Girl would have to sport blue...just sayin'.

And in case you're wondering, we have all found some middle ground.  The WKU Hilltoppers will always trump both the Cats and the Cards in the Watson Home.  

I guess you could say that WKU is our Happy Place....GO TOPS!!!!!

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

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
