Weekend Recap

This post should be called, "My Kids Can't Take Pictures," because as you'll see, we were on the struggle bus this weekend in the photo department.

On Friday night, Eric's family came into town.  Eric, Colby, Ronnie, and Chad were playing in a golf scramble, so they rented a hotel room next to the course.  Dixie and I stayed at home with the kids, so everyone could sleep.

On Saturday morning we had a quick breakfast and then went to town to do a little shopping.  The kids were turds.  I mean they wore. us. out!  We thought that lunch would turn the tide, but no such luck.  

We ended up coming home to let them burn off some energy.  After everyone left, we watched the Louisville game, and Eric fixed us fried rice and chicken.  The kids wanted to have Family Movie Night, but I was skeptical given their earlier behavior.  To my surprise, it was a pleasant experience, and the movie "Home" was adorable.

This morning was church, and as per usual, there were meltdowns.  Why does it always happen on Sunday?  Can someone please fill me on this great mystery.  I mean for five days straight, we are up, dressed, and out the door by 7:10 with nothing but smiles.  Come Sunday, we are running around like chickens with our heads cut off with someone crying, and rushing to the car at 10:10 hoping to make it to the 10:30 service.  

Dixie blessed us by leaving a frozen (homemade) lasagna, so we tore into that for lunch.  We attempted naps, but the kids caught on and woke us up.  They're super nice like that.  I decided to run to the grocery with Ellie, but Eli decided to join us at the last minute.  It was as stressful as it sounds.

It was a great weekend, even if we didn't get any decent pictures to prove it.

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
