Frightful Fun

Today was a big one for my little people.  They each had Halloween parties at school. 

 My schedule at work was too crazy to make it to Eli's party, but her wonderful teacher sent me the sweetest pictures of her in the costume parade.  She didn't wear her "real" Halloween costume.  Both my kids are into dress-up, so we have a ton of options.  This morning she was beside herself with excitement when she saw me bring out the princess dress and high heels.  She had a crown, but she broke it before the photos.  Ha!  I love her girlie little heart.

Thankfully, I was able to make it to Elie's classroom party.  His teacher is such a blessing to our family.  I was so thrilled to be able to "help" with a craft.

He doesn't looked thrilled in this picture, but at least he humored me with a photo.  I have a feeling my days of these pictures are dwindling. 

That's because he has a new lady in his life.  These two are best buds!

After Eli's party, we picked up this little princess and headed to Daddy's work for some more Halloween fun.  We made it by the skin of our teeth, but these two didn't let it rush them or keep them from racking up on candy.

After getting some sweet treats.  Eli and Eric picked up pizza while Ellie and I headed home.  Now we are playing, catching up on laundry and watching TV while Eric puts the finishing touches on the wagon.  Tomorrow is going to be AMAZING!!

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
