Weekend Recap

Eric had a company golf tournament this past weekend, and Emily played on his team.  This meant that both Emily and Nan came to town on Friday night to spend some time with the kiddos. Eli opened a few birthday presents, hit golf balls, and played before bedtime.

Eric and Emily had to be at the golf course early on Saturday, but I got to sleep in since Dixie got up with the kids.  It was heaven, I tell you!  After everyone was up and dressed, we took the kids shopping while we waited for the golf scramble to end.

We had a quick lunch at Jimmy John's before heading to the mall.  Then Nan and Emily had to hit the road.  We lounged around the house the rest of the day and pretty much relaxed.  

Eric got up super early on Sunday with the kiddos and told me to sleep as late as I wanted.  I took total advantage of this little treat and didn't wake up until 10:00.  I can't tell you the last time I slept that late.  It's been a few years.  Even though we missed church, I was so, so grateful for the chance to get some much needed rest!

Eric fixed us a huge helping of waffles which we enjoyed as we spent the morning relaxing some more.  Then we had a quick lunch and got ready for Beech Bend Park.  We had promised Eli that we would take him to the water park, so we had to follow through.

He wasn't too big on the water spraying up in his face, but he did enjoy the smaller play area for kids.  We thought he would make it 45 minutes tops, but we stayed almost two hours.  We continued to soak up the last minutes of summer with a cool treat from Sonic.  Then we ate a quick dinner and got ready to face the week.  Goodness, I love this little fella!

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
