Halloween 2015

Boo...Happy Halloween, ya'll!  I hope your day was as frightfully wonderful as ours was.

We started the day a little rocky because the kids got up at the crack of dawn, which is super annoying and puts everyone is bad mood.  Luckily, we turned it around and spent some time playing and catching up on housework while Eric put the final touches on the wagon.

He finished it at 4:00, but we ran into trouble trying to load it.  After many failed attempts, we finally took the handle off and got it loaded. Then we rushed around to get everyone dressed, out of the house and to town for Tick-or-Treating.

Right off the bat, we met up with Eli's friend Kendall and her mom.  The kids took turns riding in the wagon and on Kendall's golf cart.

Batman and Batgirl were thrilled!  They bopped from house to house collecting candy, showing off their wagon, and visiting with friends.

This little lady was beside herself and wanted to eat every sucker that she got.

It was social hour for Eli, and he was so excited to see a fellow Batman and his best buddy, Miles.

He even humored us and posed for a picture with the brains behind the Bat Mobile.  It was the most perfect night for Halloween.  The wind was blowing leaves all around and the threat of rain left a foggy haze in the air with the perfect amount of cool air.

Ellie insisted on wearing the mask, but it kept leaving huge marks on her face.  Bless her heart, she wanted to be "in character" the whole time. Ps- ignore mu hair below.  I promise I didn't chop it all off.  The wind had it all a mess.

After circling the neighborhood, we headed to church for Truck-or-Treat.  We loaded up on candy and then headed inside for soup, chili and hotdogs.

That's where Batman ran into another lady friend, Jolly.  They are in the same class at church and at school and are just the best buddies.

Funny hindsight.  Loading and unloading the wagon was a chore.  Despite the delicacy of it, we did really well.  That is until we got home.  I dropped my end..oops!  

Now we are back home, doped up on sugar, and hoping everyone rests well tonight.  It was a wonderful night full of precious memories.

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
