Snow Day #2

Today we were supposed to get 8 inches of snow.  Instead, we got a quarter inch of ice and a FOOT of snow.  It has been the most relaxing, peaceful day watching is fall, and since we needed time to rest up,  we decided not to play outside until tomorrow.

It was a great decision because it gave us some one-on-one time with the kids.  I had seen this little questionnaire on Facebook, so I decided to record the answers from Eli and Ellie and Ellie!

1. What is something I always say to you? 
Eli- I love you
Ellie- give me crown

2. What makes me happy?

Eli- playing with us
Ellie- wearing crown 

3. What makes me sad?
Eli- When We don't obey
Ellie- awe...

4. How do I make you laugh?

Eli- tickle me
Ellie - haha

5. What was I like as a child?

Eli- a good kid
Ellie- the beast (she's currently dresses up as Belle) 

6. How old am I?
Eli- 28
Ellie- 2

7. How tall am I?

Eli -3"

8. What is my favorite thing to do? 
Eli- play with us
Ellie- go sleep 

9. What do I do when you're not around?
Eli- cry
Ellie- go walk 

10. What am I really good at?

Eli- making friends 
Ellie- playing princess

11. What am I not very good at?
Eli- basketball
Ellie- silence 

12. What do I do for a job? 
Eli- work for schools
Ellie- hmm...

13. What is my favorite food? 
Eli- Salad 

14. What do you enjoy doing with me?

Eli- play 
Ellie- play barbies

Clearly Ellie misunderstood the assignment but does think I'm a crown-stealing talkative momma. Ha!  I just love their little answers.  Great idea for some snowy-day fun!

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
