Garden Patch Take Two

It was another beautiful, fall day here, so we we took advantage and headed to the Garden Patch which is just down the road from daycare.  It's so convenient.  Last year I had all these daydreams about matching kiddos at the pumpkin patch, but all those dreams changed when I discovered how hard it is to get out of the house much less coordinate outfits.  Plus, it's been too darn hot to wear all the cute outfits I bought. 

This was my weak attempt at a picture on top of the spider.  It's not the best because I was terrified that Eli would let go of Ellie and she would tumble to the ground.  Ha!

Of course we had to start our day with a trip through the hay maze.  Although, Eli would much rather jump around on top.  It's a boy thing, and I am glad to oblige because it wears him out which means he sleeps much better!

Next was the corn maze.  It's really more of a corn trail since there is only one way in and one way out.  Oh well, I'll take it!  Eli thinks he's leading some great expedition and I don't have to worry about him getting lost

Sweet Ellie is just kinda along for the ride.  It breaks my heart to think that next year she'll be tagging along behind Eli not wanting her Momma's help.  

They were getting ready for Old Fashion Farm Days, so they had an antique corn machine.  Eli had a blast shucking the kernels off.  Even though it looked safe, I was terrified that my little Dennis The Menace would somehow chop a finger off. Ha!

Again, Ellie just kinda hung out.  She's so laid back which is nice when you're thrown into so much chaos!  I'm sure you noticed...yes...I forgot her bow!!

I made Eli pose for a few pictured before we left.  Hopefully it will cool off some here in the next couple of weeks so that I can get some good fall shots of my babies in their "orchard" outfits.  

After a final run through the corn and hay mazes we said goodbye to the animals, attempted one last picture on the giant spider, and headed home to eat a yummy dinner. 

Our final picture of the day was this amazing sunset.  God is so good!!

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
