Weekend In Lexington

We just got in from the most delightful weekend in Lexington.  On Thursday, I went home on my lunch break to pack.  Then it was a quick trip through the drive-thru, and we were on the road as soon as I got off work.  

We visited with my parents when we made it, then we went to see my sister's new house, which was super adorable.  Ellie threw fit to stay at Amy's house all night, so I let her.  Friday morning my sister called to say that she had done great!

We lounged around all morning then went to my grandmother's house to visit and swim.  It was such a nice day, and the kids loved all the attention they were getting from family.  After an afternoon of fun in the sun, we headed back to my parent's house for dinner.  We settled down for a movie, and Ellie zonked right out.  Eli asked to go to bed before the movie was over, but he ended up playing in the bedroom for a few minutes

On Saturday morning, I went to get doughnuts and drove past a yard sale on my way back where I found TWO vacuum cleaners, which were much needed after mine and my parent's broke.  Yay for bargains at clean houses!

After getting ready, we ate lunch and ran by Wal-Mart before going to visit my mom's mom.  Next was Toys R Us (duh) and a visit with my dad's mom.  We met both of my siblings and their spouses for dinner at Copper River, which was an interesting experience.  Then we headed to Shannon's gym to run off some energy for the kids and dinner for me. Ha! It is so much to have a brother in law who owns his own gym complete with a 30 foot trampoline!!

Sunday my parents took the kids to church so that I could go to the lake, but I slept so soundly that I missed my sister calling to confirm.  Since that didn't work out, I went swimming with Eli and my dad while my mom kept Ellie.  They met us around 4:30, and the kids and I headed home.  It was a great wrap to a nice weekend.

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
