I'm Back…Again

Ya'll, it's been a month of Sundays since I've written, and with good reason.  Life is moving fast.  I just wrapped up a major project at work, baseball is in full swing, and our evenings are completely booked with activities.

I have so many things that I want post, so I find myself once again playing "catch-up."  April has been a whirlwind and I can't wait to post about our first trip in the camper, a few weekend recaps, and date night…oh, and the birth of my nephew!

For now, I will recap the weekend.  Friday night we claimed "Family Movie Night," and settled in to watch Heavy Weights after grilling steaks and playing outside.  Saturday was a monsoon, so all of our outdoor plans were cancelled.  We made good use of the time cleaning the house from top to bottom and getting caught up on laundry. 

On Saturday night I had to work so Eric took the kids to the movies, to get dinner, and even dessert.  He's awesome, and they may or may not be hoping that I work move weekend events. 

Sunday was church, which is where these crazy pictures were taken.  After church, we went home for lunch and a low-key afternoon.  I did more laundry, cleaned, and played with the kids while Eric worked on the garden.  

To round out the weekend the kids went on a wagon ride around the yard…the wagon was being pulled by the lawn mower.  Redneck?  We also found a baby turtle and named it Sally despite not knowing its gender.  Sally did not like captivity, so after the kids went to bed, Eric released him/her back into the wild.  Ha!  They've never brought it up again.

I promise to catch up on more soon!

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
