Snow Cream

Yesterday I blogged about how I don't want this to end...the precious family time that comes with being snowed in.  Of course, all good things must come to a close, but I just needed to soak it up a little bit longer.  

School was out, but work continued at the office.  I toyed with the idea of sledding one more time this evening, but all of the melting just made for a muddy mess.  Instead, we made Snow Cream..."southern style" with all the bad stuff you can think off in it.

Eli is a rule follower and was less than thrilled about eating the snow. He asked me about a billion times if it was clean or if it would make him sick.  Ha!  Looks like we have a "Safety Sam" Jr. on our hands.

Ellie was quite the opposite.  She channeled her inner Snow Queen, putting on her Elsa dress and getting right down to business.

I must say that the Southern Style recipe was much better than the one I found online last year.  I could actually eat this stuff.

My house is turned upside down.  The winter clothes, coats, hats, and gloves are in a floor by the door needing to be washed and put away. My dining room table has been moved into the family room to make way for the full-size a mattress that we need to get rid of but haven't because of the snow. The bathroom vanity and toilet are sitting in my family room while we repair the floor.  Dishes are piled in the sink, and toys are littering the floor, but I couldn't worry about that tonight. I just needed to be with my babies while they are two and six and mesmerized by the magic of a snow day.

Tomorrow I will start to put it all back in place before I lose my sanity, but my Momma soul needed more chance to soak it all in.

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
