Prissy Sissy

Eli has gotten quite a bit of attention on the blog lately with all of the school activities, and I didn't want ya'll to think that I had forgotten about Ellie, so here is a post dedicated to our "Prissy Sissy."  Please excuse the photo quality. With a toddler, you can't wait to find the camera, and a iPhone is always right at hand. 

Eli is well rounded.  She goes from wrestling and playing with Monster Trucks and Hot Wheels to wearing necklaces and playing dress up.  In fact, she almost always wears a necklace at home, and recently she has found the wonder of sunglasses. Despite having them on upside down, she was looking adorable when she came strolling her baby down  the hall…and then she turned around. 

Haha!  Ya'll, I just about died laughing!!  I posted this on Instagram: Mommy in the front; Daddy in the back!  This girl is one of kind!

While Nan and Gradad were here today, Nan wanted to go show shopping for Ellie.  We found several great options, but Ellie had her little heart set on these baby high heels.  I mean have you ever seen a cuter thing in your life?!

We didn't get them, but this Prissy Sissy tried them on and walked pretty well.  I was impressed…and proud.  Who knows, she may grow up to be a pageant girl after all.  And even if she doesn't she loves shoes, and that's a child after my own heart!

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
