Snow Day #1

I don't know if I mentioned this yesterday or not, but Eric went to work because he has a truck.  After a morning of cleaning out my closet, I followed through with my promise to take the kids outside to play.

Eli quickly declared that there wasn't enough snow, which was funny to me because it's actually a pretty large amount for this area.  I guess the past two winters have spoiled him a bit. 

He also informed me that Daddy is way more fun to play with in the snow than I am.  It's true.  In my defense, however, I didn't have the proper attire to wear.  

As you can see, one child likes the snow better than the other.  Ha!  Just joking.  Ellie loved it too, she was just having a "moment."

She tends to thrive better in a more pampered setting. Wearing princes dresses and playing in makeup is a little more her style. 

I can't argue with that one bit.  I love every single minute of our "girl time," and I can't wait for the memories to come. 

Of course, we can't leave out Eli.  When he's not playing Prince Charming or Ellie's Knight in Shining Armor, he likes to bust out the Super Hero costumes.  He's all boy that one.

Yesterday was just so much fun, and it looks like there will be plenty more to enjoy because round two is on it's way.  I worked today to catch up on some things, but my office is closed tomorrow in anticipation of hazardous travel. 

I can't wait to spend the weekend making memories with these two!

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

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
