Weekend Recap

We're back into the groove of things after a fun little weekend.  The kids were so tired this morning that I literally had to dress them while they were still sleeping and physically carry them both to the car.  I have no idea how they ate, but they both managed to inhale a pop tart in their sleep.  Ha!  I think it's safe to say that we are ready for summer break!

Anyway, back to this weekend.  It was a good one, and we got a lot accomplished.  Friday after work, I picked up Eli and took him to a friends house for his very first "school friend sleepover."  In case you couldn't tell, I made up the name.  Ha!  Anyway, he went to a church lock-in with some friends on his baseball team.

Ellie and I talked Eric into treating us to dinner, so we went to a Japanese steakhouse for sushi and hibachi!  He also put our new bikes together.  Now she and I have something to ride when we go camping. 

Saturday morning we picked up Eli, ate breakfast, and headed to a neighborhood years sale.  It was all fine and dandy until I realized that I had the wrong weekend.  Ugh!  Seriously, can someone buy me a calendar?

We made the most of our time in town and hit up a few stores before eating BBQ and taking Eli to a playdate with Kendall.  These two are such good buddies and had the best time playing baseball, basketball, and riding their scooters. 

I had to share this picture of Ellie because she is holding up a limb with leaves on it and calling it her pom-pom!  I have such fond memories of Eli at the same park where he used a stick for a bat and a walnut for a ball.  I love that difference between boys and girls. 

It was FREEZING with highs in the mid 50s and gusty winds, so we didn't last too long at the park before we called it a day and headed to the grocery store where the kids were good for the second week in a row. WHOOT!!

Back at home I got a wild hair and started completely reorganizing my kitchen.  I have been decluttering my life and it feels so good!!  I worked until late in the evening while I listened to sermons and watched the Blindside on tv.  

Yesterday Eric woke up with day four of severe tooth pain from a visit to the dentist last week.  He has been ill ever since his procedure, and just needed to sleep it off.  I took the kids to church and then out to lunch so that he could have some peace and quiet.

Everyone agreed on Mexican, and it did not disappoint!  It was Eli's idea to take pictures to document our outing! 

 We spent some time resting and then the kids wanted to go outside, so I made good use of the time by cleaning out my car.  This time of year, I feel like we live in it, so it was nice to clean it up too. 

I love this picture of the kids playing like they were on vacation.  Ha!  Ellie is such a drama queen!  We finished the weekend playing and working on the kitchen and bedrooms.  Tonight I need to do laundry and clean the family room while Eli is at practice, and hopefully I will be caught up for a while.

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
