Snow, Snow Go Away

In case you haven't heard, the storm of the century hit Kentucky this week and help a foot or more of snow in most places.  Needless to say, we didn't make it into work.  We used the time to be together as a family which was just what the doctor had ordered. 

I spent the morning cleaning while Eric shoveled the drive-way.  After lunch we went outside for some sledding.  Elli was much more excited this go-around.  As you can see above, she enjoyed the sled as long as she didn't have to exert too much effort. Ha!

This time around, Eli was a bit more pouty.  In fact, he declared that he is praying that it will never snow again.  Honestly, I can't say that I blame him.  At least,  I hope it doesn't snow again this year. 

As always, Eric was a trooper.  After hours of shoveling the snow, he still cut out some time to play in it with the kids.  I still have memories of my dad playing with me outside on winter days, so I know that our kids will cherish this time one day. 

Below is proof that I actually have three kids.  Eric is such a child at heart and had as much fun in the snow as the kids did.  Even I took a few risks and went sledding.  The hardest part for me was getting on and off the sled.  I'm not as agile as I used to be!

After sledding, we built a snowman. Ellie and Eric did the brunt of the work, and Eli picked out the knight gear.  He also had pennies for teeth and string cheese for a nose, but I talked hime out of it. 

Back inside it was more laundry, cleaning, and dinner.  Then it was lights out because we were all just a little tired from the snow day fun.  As much as I enjoyed it, I am fine to wait another year for the next round. Snow, snow…GO AWAY!!!

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
