According To The iPhone...

According to my phone, we have had an interesting day around these parts.  I woke up with a rash yesterday.  I treated it with Benadryl which seemed to work…until today.  I woke up  this morning covered in hives.  The second picture below is of my leg, and that was one of the LEAST effected areas.  My stomach and back were solid!

As you might imagine, I promptly headed to the Urgent Care Center for a shot.  The problem is that Eli had a 9:00 ballgame, and there was no way for Eric to take both kids.  We decided to divide and conquer.   I loaded up Ellie and waited in the parking lot for the place to open while Eric took Eli on to his game.  A shot and several prescriptions later, Ellie and I were cheering on Little Blondie!

Today is the last Saturday of Quail Season, so Eric left the game to go hunt.  I took both kids to the grocery store with me, which turned out better than expected.  After we got home, ate lunch, and put away the food, we decided to enjoy the sunshine and amazing temperatures. 

Off to the park we went.  It's so fun to see how much the kids change over the winter.  It was our first trip to this particular park since at least October.  Last year I had to follow Ellie around reminding her not to jump off the slide.  This year she is completely independent. 

Eli has also blossomed from the shy kid to the one organizing a game of tag with the other children. It's truly a joy to see them grow and mature!  Back at home we ate a quick dinner with Eric who had returned from hunting.  Then it was baths and a movie!

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
