Sweet Sunday

Sundays at our house are very low key...that would be AFTER the morning hassle of getting two kids ready and out the door to church.  This morning I was in my usual tizzy trying to get everything together when Eric informed me that he didn't understand why I was in such a rush (a.k.a. bad mood.)  I looked at the clock and realized that we had plenty of extra time.

Seeing this as a photo op, I rounded up my dressed kiddos and started snapping pictures which you are now can thank me later. Ha!

After church we hit the grocery store, and when we got home Eric made tacos.  Goodness, I love that man!  He also took care of the kids while I napped, and he cleaned up the kitchen.  After nearly five years of marriage he has learned that that fastest way to my heart is through a clean house.

After my nap, I did about a billion loads of laundry while Eric entertained the kids and played Superheros with Eli.  Please be advised that if you ever play Superheros with Eli, this will likely ensure...little monkey!

I had a meeting at church tonight about Bible School this coming week, which I am super excited about.  Since it's unseasonably cool here today (upper 70s) I decided to make a rare summer appearance at the park with Eli. 

It just breaks my heart to think about how fast he's growing up, and about the fact that this time next year Ellie will be walking and more than likely trying to tag along.

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
