Ellie's Daddy Day

You probably picked up on this yesterday, but it has been an insane week around here.  Not only did I start my new job, Ellie got sick and now Eli is hacking up a lung.  My kids have horrible timing bless their hearts.  Oh, and Ellie has decided that she hates sleeping...or maybe she hates me and is punishing me by keeping me up all night.  

 Eric ended up taking off work yesterday to take her to the doctor since this is my first week at the new job. The top picture is what she looked like Tuesday before bed.  Thankfully that was the one night she sorta slept well.  Eric is such a good daddy and made sure to make the most of his time with Ellie.  He even sent me some pictures!

Eli was still at my in-laws house at this point, so that's why he was MIA in case you're wondering. Anyway, I scheduled my lunch break so that I could meet Eric and Ellie at the doctor's office. I have to say that Eric earned some major points for her outfit...and bow...and shoes!  I was impressed.

They ended up getting back early, so I met them as they were getting off the elevator.  It was a pleasant surprise, and so was lunch at Chick-fil-A.  Eric felt bad that his girl was going to have to keep taking eye drops, so he took her by Sonic for a Cherry Lime Aid. 

Apparently, all their bonding time wore her out because she laid down on the floor and fell straight to sleep...bless it!

I skipped church on Wednesday to stay home with my sicky and to wait on Elie to get back home.  As luck would have it, he's puny today.  UGH...sickness be gone!!!

Ya'll I'm not sure what we would have done this week without my in-laws here to help.  They've been such a blessing!

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
