Snot Fest 20-13

We had a  low key weekend thanks in part to stuffy noses. Ugh!    The kids and Eric were snotty messes, so we tried to take it easy for every to get better.  This was our last weekend before the end of the year that is free, so we thought it best to rest up.  In fact, we never left the house expect for a quick Wal-Mart run for laundry detergent. 

We're pretty much hermits on Friday's so we ate a quick dinner and enjoyed weekly Family Movie Night.  Eli chose "How The Grinch Stole Christmas."  We blew up the air mattress and set up the projector.  I'm telling you, it's the small things that make kids happy. 

Ellie was a charmer and woke up at 5:00 on Saturday morning. I ended up sneaking in a once Eric woke up.  Other than that, we didnt do much.  Eric fixed another thing on my van, and we made a Wal Mart run, but that's about it.  

We put the kids to bed early and watched Olympus Has Fallen.  It wasn't my favorite, but I sure did enjoy pretending to be on a date.  Ha!

We missed church again this morning because of the whole snot situation, but I used the time to get caugh up on laundry.  This is a picture of all the clean clothes before I put them away.  Actually, this is minus two loads that wouldn't fit on the bed. 

It was a lot of work, but so worth empty clothes hamper.  Yes, I did have to document it because it may be another five years before you see it again.  

Hope you had a great weekend.

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
