Weekend In Marion

I didn't take many picture, but I managed to get a few over the weekend.  We'll consider this a success since visits to the grandparents' houses usually aren't well documented.  Anyway, we spent the past weekend in Marion visiting Eric's family.  We have only made it to Western Kentucky twice all's so hard traveling with kids!!

After our horrible rotten news with the van, we just weren't in the mood to do much.  I went home, cried, watched Scandal, took a 20 minute nap, and picked up the kids.  Eric decided to take off work an hour early too since we didn't trust the van on the road after dark.  Once we were packed we stopped for gas and snacks and hit the road. 

We ate a yummy BBQ dinner when we got there and spent the rest of the night just hanging out.  Saturday morning Eric, Ronnie, Colby and Emily went to play in a golf scramble.  I slept in until 7:45 and then spent some time with Dixie and the kids.  

We were just making it to town as the golf match wrapped up, so we drove over to see Emily's new house.  Eli was so excited and has since announced that he will be moving in with Emily when he turns seven. Ha!  Good to know.   

We ate lasagna for dinner and spent more time relaxing.  I have to say that I enjoy that so much about visiting with Eric's family. Sunday was pretty laid back as well.  We slept in again, spent time with family, ate a yummy lunch, and went back to Emily's new house to move an entertainment center. 

The kids slept on the way home so they were wired.  We kept them up an extra hour and now we're trying to get everything ready for the week.  It's hard traveling with the kids, but we so enjoy spending time with family.

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
