Halloween 2013

So here's something you need to know about me...I am not a Halloween person.  I don't have a problem with it, I just don't get into it.  If it wasn't for my kids, I wouldn't even acknowledge it.  So, you will excuse my poor attempt at a costume for Ellie.

Eli is very into superheroes, so he was Captain America.  His costume was actually a birthday gift back in August, but hey, he loved it!!  Ellie is supposed be Captain America's sidekick which is a totally made up person.  I told you that I was lame.  The poor baby was one of the only ones in the daycare nursery without an outfit...epic mom fail.  Good thing she'll never remember. 

Eli, however, did dress up at daycare, and once I picked them up, he had a chance to go Trick Or Treating at Daddy's work.  He gets such a kick out of going to Eric's work.  Of course this was Ellie's first trip, but I think she liked it!

We rushed home from Trick Or Treating to load the car for church.  We didn't even get out of the van, Eric grabbed the stuff we were off.  It was supposed to be Trunk Or Treating, but we had severe storms and 50 mile per hour winds, so we moved it inside.  I kinda liked it better because we didn't have to worry about Eli wondering off and Ellie was about to crawl around too. 

It was so busy.  Our town called off Trick Or Treating, so I guess all the parents decided to bring their kids to the church which was awesome!!  Eli loved seeing everyone dressed up, especially his buddy Griffin. The two were quite a team.  Even Ellie Girl had fun eating her very first sucker. 

Even though I totally failed at the costume thing, Eric made up for it by creating some awesome posters to decorate the car with.  I'll show you his handwork tomorrow.

Happy Halloween!!!!!

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
