Beast Weekend: Greensburg

We just rounded out another fun weekend of baseball with our Beast boys! Saturday was rough and we lost both games, which put us as the last seed going into Sunday.  But we turned it around and battled back in extra innings to take third place overall!!

One of the things we enjoy most about playing on a travel team is seeing parts of the state and region that we would otherwise never visit.  We were in Greensburg over the weekend and enjoyed lunch at Snappy Tomato along with a little bargain shopping between games.


Of course the best part is making friendships that will last a lifetime.  As if we don't see each other enough at practice and games, we still hang out at birthday parties, sleep overs, and camping weekends!

While the boys keep our stomachs in knots on the field, the siblings provide plenty of entertainment in the stands.  Ellie and Emeryre are little bundles of drama who have at least one major fallout per weekend, but makeup and become BFFs. They also have the very best ballpark attire.  

And even though her antics in the bleachers prevent her from knowing what's going on, Ellis just might be this kid's number one fan.  He's our Eli, Big Blondie, and 1-3.

Win, lose or draw - you know it's been a good weekend when you fall asleep before getting out of the Pizza Hut parking lot.  I can't wait to rest up and do it all again next weekend.

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
