Derby Day Fun

Happy Derby Day, ya'll!  I hope you've had a good one and maybe even won a little cash if you tried your luck at the races.  My sister won a TON of money at Keenland for picking the trifecta.  She sent me a picture of the payout ticket, but I think it might be illegal to post that kind of thins.  Anyway, I don't have that much luck myself, but I did have a good day nonetheless. 

Last night was Family Movie Night.  We watched The Sandlot and in an amazing turn of events, everyone fell asleep super early, which put us all in a good mood today.  Our first stop was the ball field.  My little bleacher buddy helped me cheer on her brother in good game of baseball!

After the game, we went to a party for the Adkins twins.  These two had the best time playing together.  We have to reunited them more often.  It's so good for their souls and mine too.  They are just the best family!

After the party, we ran by the grocery store where the kids were actually super well-behaved! Can I get a fist bump from the momma's out there?!?!

We made it home just in time for the Run for the Roses.  Eli was so excited and proudly sang "My Old Kentucky Home," which brings me to tears every stinking time. Ha!  Anyway, he wanted his horse and a Nascar helmet so he could participate.  Apparently, the Watson's do not believe in specter sports. 

We rounded out the evening with burgers for dinner and another early bedtime!  Oh, Eric also go our pool open for the summer…what an awesome day!

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
