The Rest of the Weekend

After the party we had a few minutes to swing by the house and change clothes before heading to WKU for the last game of the season.

We ate dinner at Steamer again, and Ellie decided on a snow-cone for her treat.

Eli watches every move the players make.  He's such a little sponge, absorbing everything he can about the game.  I'm going to miss the time together, but I think we will probably get tickets again next year.

We finally won a home game in overtime, which felt so good considering how many heartbreakers we've endured this season.  

After the game, this guy got to shoot on the court one final time for the season.

Meanwhile, Ellie modeled her new outfit from Nan.  Ha!

As soon as we got home, we put the kids to bed since they had already had baths in preparation for the party.  Eric and I settled in for our typical Saturday night tradition of watching a movie while the slept. 

Sunday was draft day for baseball, so Eli and Eric did the evaluations while Ellie and I went to church.  Then I treater her to Chuy's (my favorite) before running to the grocery.  We had enough time for me to swing by the house to unload the groceries while she slept in the car.

Then we headed back to church for a brief meeting.  Some friends stopped by the house to bring Ellie a birthday gift.  After that, we ate dinner and settled in for the week.  For the first time since Christmas, it's going to be a slow one with no evening commitment.  YAY!!

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
