Weekend Recap

The first full weekend of 2016 has come and gone, and it was spent just the way it should be with lots of family time, a few fun activities, and a dash of relaxation.

We started the day off at Eli's ballgame, and we were supposed to hit the road for Lexington as soon as it ended.  As luck would have it, of course, a kid hit Eric in the face with a basketball and broke his glasses.

Even though we were a bit delayed, we made the most of it by hitting up Krispy Kreme Donuts while the eye doctor repaired the glasses. 

The ride to Lexington wasn't terrible other than the kids asking, "how much longer" every five minutes.  I think they were just excited to be opening Christmas gifts.  

We enjoyed a few minutes visiting with family before opening presents.  Mom and Dad made a huge dinner for everyone, so it was nice to be together as a family.  We even managed a group shot with everyone including the two new babies!

On Sunday Eric and I went to church with my dad and sister while my mom kept the kids.  It was super cold, and she wasn't feeling very well.   After a quick lunch, we packed up everything and headed back home to get ready for the week. 

After a few loads of laundry, some unpacking and reorganizing, I picked up the groceries.  We ate dinner, bathed the kids and are ready for a full work week ahead. 

I hate that it had to end, but I'm so grateful that we had such a good time.

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
