Mistletoe Musings

I hope to get back into the habit of posting Midweek Musings again in 2017 so that I can photo-dump all random pictures from the week.  Since it's Thursday, and the end of my week, I thought that Mistletoe Musings would be a more appropriate title.  It keeps up with the alliteration and gives it a nice holiday ring.  Don't you agree?

Anyway, we woke up with freezing fog yesterday.  It's quite dangerous for drivers, but is it not breathtaking?  I felt like I was inside a snow globe.  It was just beautiful.

In other news, I have yet to post a single picture of my Christmas Tree lighted up at night.  I love how warm and cozy it makes my house feel.  Just because I like to keep it real- what you don't see in this picture are the toys cluttering the other side of the room or the pile of shoes behind me. 

Last night we went to the Beckham's house for pizza and to watch the UK v. Louisville game.  For the first time in my life, I wore read.  Don't get too upset because I wasn't cheering for the Cards per se. I was just trying to make this little guy happy.  I think I accomplished that, and if not, the win certainly did.

Today at work we had a Tacky Sweater contest.  I didn't participate, and I regret that.  I can't wait to go all next year to make up for it.  To top off the festivities, we all enjoyed a Tacky Cake to go along with our wardrobe.  Don't worry, it tasted lovely.

To round out our week, after work today, we're picking up the kiddos and taking them to Opryland Hotel for our annual trip to see the lights.  We also have a little something extra up our sleeves, so you'll have to check back in tomorrow to see the highlights.

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
