Easter Parties

School was originally supposed to be out of session yesterday for Good Friday, but with all of the snow, it became a makeup day.  I've managed to get in a lot of extra hours this week, so I took advantage and headed to Eli's school for the Easter party.

I know I'm sounding like broken record, but seriously ya'll, he has the best  teacher ever.  The first game was Bunny Nose.  They put Vasoline on their noses and picked up cotton balls that they had to shake into a bucket.  

Next they had to scoop up "Buuny Tails" with chop sticks and put them in a cup.  We weren't so good at that one.  Ha!  There was also a contest to flick "Peeps" down the hallway, but I didn't get any pictures of that one. 

The kiddos also took turns matching eggs and putting them together.  Eli was all about this one, even though he did cheat a few times. 

The next station involved blowing plastic eggs across the table an into a basket.  It was a high hit and something I can see us doing at home one night. 

I know this looks gross, but I promise that no Jelly Beans were eaten during the scooping game.  I had to get back to work to finish tying up some loose ends before the weekend, so I took Eli with me.  He was thrilled with the surprise and was such a good little helper.


  1. An adorable post! I am a big party freak. Family parties are my favorite ones. I always host my personal parties at new venues. Going to host my birthday party at entirely a new venue. Hoping to have a blast there.

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
