A Whacky Weekend

As if swallowing a penny wasn't enough to constitute a wacky day, the whole weekend was just kind of off.  Eric was sick with more sinus crud, and it just a slushy mess outside from all the melting.  

Saturday after Eli's ballgame, we went to the grocery store in Glasgow and literally soaked ourselves getting to and from the car.  I have never been so thrilled to have Eric with me.  I could not have braved the weather with the kids and the groceries. 

Clearly Saturday night was eventful with the whole penny situation, and Ellie topped it off by breaking two china tea cups and pulling the cake stand off the hutch in the dining room.  Praise the Lord that it didn't break of her, but the poor girl got scratched up from all the decorative pinecones that hit her led.

Today I took the kids to just alone because Eric was just really puny with the cold.  I tried to get pictures of Eli and Ellie, but that didn't work so well for me.  We ended up staying home and trying to recover from Saturday. Ha!  Now we're hoping for no more snow days!

Ok, this is off subject and I'm slightly embarrassed by the dirty coffee table, but how sassy does Ellie look in this dress. 2 going on 20.

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
