While The Boy Is Away...

Now that we're all caught up on the traveling and holiday festivities, here's a little update on our week.  As I mentioned, Eli stayed with Eric's parents because he still can't swim.  He has been so excited for this special time with them.

I may have to "detox" him when he returns, because he is getting so much attention.  Haha!  They had lunch at Patty's, went putt-putting, saw Finding Dory, and went to the heritage museum.  Plus there were a few other activities packed in there.  I loved getting updates from my mother-in-law!

Back on the home front, we were busy as well.  The torrential rains and flooding meant no swimming, but we dodged the showers to work on our back porch, which was in desperate need of some TLC.  It took three nights and a long trip to the plant nursery that ended with Ellie peeing in her pants and the poor couple loaning us a pair of underwear, but we are done and it looks great!

Between Ellie being gone for Eli's surgery, me and the kids traveling to Lexington, our July Fourth trip to Marion, and now Eli being gone, I am so ready to have everyone back home and under one roof.  I'm glad my boy is having fun, but I am counting down the time until I can see him again.

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
