Together Again

Today has been wonderful in so many ways.  After getting up and making a big breakfast, Ellie and I headed outside to catch up on sunbathing.  Eric is still dealing with vertigo, so he stayed inside to rest.  Poor Ellie got stung by a bee and was done for the day, so she went inside with Daddy.  That gave me a solid hour and a half to lay out and read.  After the craziness of the past few weeks, it was a much needed break.

After a relaxing afternoon, we got cleaned up and headed to get Eli.  We only made it a few miles down the road when we had to turn around and take Eric home.  The vertigo and a long car ride were not going to mix too well, so Ellie and I headed on to Beaver Dam.  We met Eric's parents, ate a quick dinner, and let the kids play on the playground before heading home.

It felt to good to get Eli home and have everyone under one roof!  Of course the first item on the agenda was a dip in the pool.  After two weeks off limits after the surgery, he was more than ready to make a splash.

We lit the Tiki torches, and it looks like we're swimming in a jungle. Ha!  The peace may be short-lived because I'm sure the kids will be back to fighting tomorrow, but they were so happy to see each other and have been so sweet.  

I think think of a better way to spend a Saturday!

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
