I'm Back!

Happy Snow Day #8, ya'll.  I had a little unexpected blogging hiatus thanks to a few crazy in I was home only ONE night each week.  I can't do that.  I NEED to be home.  I thrive on the order of a general routine, and it makes me feel out of sorts to be gone so much.

We're being forced to slow down today, but not because of the snow.  Nope.  Both kids are sick.  Ellie woke up vomiting just as we were headed to bed, and Eli woke up with another kind of tummy trouble ;)

They're both lounging around but seem to be on the upswing.  Eli even asked for a Pop Tart, which is good news.  I don't know what it is about being snowed in, but this exact same thing happened to us two years ago.  UGH! Anyway, after their morning sickness, they perked up enough to give me a little makeover, so I hope you enjoy these fabulous photos.

On a different note...I keep hearing people say that they think this is the last snowfall of the year, but I disagree.  It has snowed every year on Ellie's birthday, and the past two years have been major winter storms.  I think the odds are that we'll at least see a few flurries in March.

Other than that, I don't have much to report.  Maybe I can get caught up on blogging while I'm snowed in with sick kids?  Stay tuned...

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
