Easter Weekend Fun

Ya'll, I have decided to plunge back into blogging about the little tidbits about our daily lives.  Maybe one day I will explain why I stopped and the craziness of life that happened during that busy season, but not today.  Today, I want to jump headfirst into what's going on around these parts.

This year we got very luck and were able to celebrate both Eric's birthday and Easter on the same day, and what better way than a trip to Marion?  We hadn't been in since Thanksgiving, so it was the perfect time to take a little visit.  

Eric was off for Good Friday, so I took a half day and we hit the road after about a billion stops in town.  We made it to Marion just before dinner and had a relaxing evening.

Saturday morning Eli and Eric went to the ballpark to watch a cousin if we don't spend enough time at the ball field.  Ha!  Eli ended up getting to fill-in since they were a player down, which he loved. 

When they got back, Eric's mom and I fed the kids a quick lunch and headed to a jump place in Eddyville to meet up with some cousins so that the kids could run off a little energy since this is the eternal winter. It was the neatest little place with several bouncy houses that were perfect for smaller kids.  Plus at $5 a pop, you can't go wrong!

While we were gone, Eric and his dad went fishing, so we had all worked up an appetite for dinner!  After some delicious pizza, we cleaned up and let the kids dye some Easter eggs.  They're really at the perfect age because Eli is still young enough to be interested and Ellie is finally old enough to be independent!

After they finished their masterpieces, we rounded out the night with baths and laying out all of our clothes so that we could get dressed and make it out of the house in time for church the next morning!

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
