Boundaries And A Story

I'm still playing catch up on the blog, and I always post date everything so that it's in order of how it actually happened.  If you follow me on blogger this won't be a problem, but if you clicked the Facebook link, some older post might not show up in your newsfeed.  Not that you care what's going on in our boring lives, but if you do, be sure to hit the "older posts" button on the bottom right of the page. 

Tonight at church we're starting a new series.  Actually, last Wednesday was the first lesson, but I spoke to a group of kids at another church here in town. (one of those things that I need to blog about)  As always I'm looking forward to diving into The Word with this amazing group of ladies I have come to love so much!

Of course Eli and Ellie were excited to go see their friends.  If you read my post from a few weeks ago, you know that Wednesdays are busy but at least it gives me an excuse to put these two in matching outfits for a photo op.  By the way, Ellie hit a milestone tonight when she sat in a high chair for the first time.   We just use a Bumbo at home, but clearly she took to the change like a champ.  

This is a funny story I don't want to forget: Ellie's dress was a little snug when I put it on her, but I thought it was because it was new.  Well, not so much.  When I went to pick her up from the nursery she was sleeping soundly, but not in her pjs.  The volunteers informed me that they couldn't get the dress off!!!  Yeah...I had to cut it off of her when we got home!

I'm gonna add that to my application for Mom Of The Year Award!!

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
