Rehearsal Dinner

It's the most wonderful time of year, and it's also the busiest.  After Eli and I picked up Ellie following our little date yesterday afternoon, we all headed home. I had to make something for the Boy Scouts Potluck, so while the casserole was finishing, I dressed Ellie for Rehearsal Dinner.

She was asked to be the flower-girl in a wedding for someone at church.  That was way back in the summer, and she has been super pumped about it ever since.  She was so excited to get dressed up and head to the church to practice. 

The little ring-bearer also goes to our church and is seriously one of the cutest kid I have ever seen.  I begged to take their picture together, and finally, we made a compromise. If I let him take one in his Spiderman mask in one picture, he would take one picture for me without it.  That's a win-win, ya'll!

They both did a great job at rehearsal and loved hanging out with the groomsmen and bridesmaids.  My sister bought Ellie a play wedding dress for Christmas, so she's going to be smitten now that she knows what it means to be a bride. 

Ellie's favorite part of the night was toasting with Sparkling Cider.  She'd say "cheers" every single time someone would finish a speech.  It was so cute.  I told Eric that if she's still that enthusiastic about drinking "champagne" in 15 years, she's not allowed to go to college.  Ha!

I can't wait to see how she does in the wedding tonight.  She will probably eat it up because to her, life's a stage!

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
