Fall Festival

Tonight was Fall Festival at school, and it was one of those events that I have always daydreamed about doing as a parent, and I must say that it did not disappoint!  The day started a bit rushed because Ellie was up ALL. NIGHT. LONG.  Really, 11:00 -3:45!  Needless to say, I skipped the shower and slept as long as possible. I didn't get the game we donated delivered nor did I get my bake sale or cake walk items finished.  It was a crazy lunch hour, but it was well worth it to see Eli so excited when I picked him up from school!

Griffin was there, and that was just icing on the cake for Eli!  They had a great time, but both of them were being extra bashful the entire night.  Expect, of course, when they were in disguise.  This is what you call "hiding behind a mask." 

One of the things I love about our school is that is truly a part of the community.  There were families there from church and daycare who don't even have kids who attend.  They just wanted to come out at support the fundraiser.  Ya'll it seriously shut down a whole city block…how cool is that? 

Everyone knows my kids by name, and that means a lot to a Momma's heart.  Even Ellie Girl found a familiar face.  These two sassy things are going to be best of friends and maybe even a little bit of trouble when they get to the school.  Ha!

We had a great time, but had to jet a little early so that we could make it home in time to see Nan and Grandad who are on their way as we speak.

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

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
