Sunday Fun

I love the beginning of November.  It brings the promise of such a sweet, sweet season as we anticipate the precious memories that await throughout the holiday season.

Of course, it all started bright and early thanks to daylight savings time, which brings me to this question...what is everyone talking about with this "extra hour" of sleep?  The way I see it, I  wind up getting up at the same time as always, which is now an hour earlier.  UGH!

Not to mention, this is on the heels the kids coming off the biggest sugar high of their life.  It's like some cult of non-parents decided that it would be a great idea to dope kids on candy and scare them silly before sending them to bed way too late, knowing that they would wake up extra early thanks to the time change.

We survived this little drudgery and made it to church after taking some pictures of these two all dolled up.  After church, we ate lunch, played and watched football until it was time to head to Grady's birthday party.

These two were thrilled to be reunited and even posed for a picture.  It was short-lived because little sister had to photobomb.  Ha!  I love the way she is looking at him.

After the party, it was TWO trips to the grocery because I forgot to get charcoal for the grill.  Back at home, Eric made steak and potatoes for dinner!

Everyone is resting now while I catch up on this blog, watching Quantico, and getting everything ready for the week ahead.

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
