Let's Review

So yesterday I did the most boring post in the history of blogging.  Let's face it, I have been a slacker all month long.  I was thinking about writing several highlight posts, but my life just isn't that exciting, so I thought I would compress it all into one review post with lots of pictures.  Sound good?

 Ellie is walking up a storm these days, so my afternoons are spent making sure she doesn't eat off the floor, fall off the furniture, play in the toilet or hijack the electronics...all of which have happened at least once.

Eli's obsession with Monster Trucks seems to have manifested this month.  He got several for sleeping better, and used Christmas and Valentine's money to buy more.  Lovely. I'm fairly certain that it is not safe to have so many small toys on the floor, however, it is great entertainment to watch my husband stumble on them...I joke. 

I've spent some time raising this girl up as a good and proper southern belle.  She may be a bit of a tomboy, but she understands the importance of a nice bow and college football.  Speaking of football, Eric's family came in for a visit the first weekend in February but had to leave early do to snow.  We stayed home to watch the Superbowl before I headed to a hotel for the night since I couldn't miss work.  Yeah, we got rain...stupid Bowling Green bubble. 

Our Fridays have mainly been spent playing with the kids and enjoying family movie night.  Saturdays are low key and pretty much involve a single outing to the grocery store with the whole family in tow.  Once the babies are in bed, Eric and I attempt to watch a movie but we usually fall asleep...we live life on the edge!! 

Of course we always go to church on Sundays before having lunch at home, napping, playing with the kids, doing a few loads of laundry and preparing for the week.  It's nice to have to the day to relax. 

We did have a few highlights this month.  Eli signed up for t-ball, and the kids got to "camp" in the family room!  That pretty much sums it up.  HA!  

I promise to do better in March.  I should be a bit more successful since we'll thaw out and get outside a bit!

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
