Weekend Recap

We had the most wonderful weekend minus Ellie getting sick.  Yeah, two weeks into the regular routine of our lives, and I am home with a sick kid.  UGH!

Back to the awesome weekend.

Friday night I was too tired to cook, so I grabbed McDonald's for dinner.  After eating we bathed the kids and settled in for our weekly tradition - Family Movie Night.  Eli is on a Christmas kick, so we watched a holiday favorite.  After the kids went to bed, Eric and I attempted to watch something together, but we fell asleep.  We are just such an exciting couple. Ha!

Saturday morning I took the kids with me to town so that Eric could work on his boat.  We started with breakfast at Hardee's before making a grocery run.  Back at home we played, watched the Little League World Series, and knocked some chores off of our "to do" list.

Saturday evening we were finally reunited with the Adkins!!!  We had a nacho bar and dessert, and the house was so full of chaos and laughter, and the sounds of good friends who had been away far too long.

After an impromptu baseball/soccer game in the front yard, the kids came in and showed their skills at a self proclaimed (by Eli) dance party.  I'm just gonna say that the Adkins' babies got moves.  Haha!

I haven't laughed that hard in a really long time.  It was so good for my soul.  The whole evening blessed me so much, and I can't wait to catch up again.

After everyone left, we thought Ellie felt a little warm, but assumed it was from running around.  Not so much.  She woke up yesterday morning with a low-grade fever and was just pitiful. We stayed home from church to let her get some rest, and I had a few minutes to work on my fall porch. Today it's all business with doctors appointments, and I am grateful to report she just has some allergy/sinus issues.

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
