Trick or Treating: Round One

The weather here has been gorgeous, but that's all supposed to change tomorrow with some rain and colder temperatures coming in.  It has been World War 3 in our community about when to Trick or Treat, which just cracks me up.  You can chalk it up to yet another issue I don't give a hoot about.

Anyway, some friends invited us to go with them tonight since a neighborhood in our community was celebrating early.  We weren't sure that we could make it happen, but it all worked out.  I'm glad we made the call because if it rains tomorrow, I'll have to hear about it for another whole year!

Eric took the kids costume shopping this year, and I think it should become a tradition. He went ALONE...with TWO a store...and let then pick from HUNDREDS of options.  He also downloaded a digital coupon and bought Ellie a wig, so he gets major husband props! Ellie was someone from Monster High, but I have no clue who. Eli was a killer clown and proud of it! What happened to my little Elmo?

The best part of the night was when a little girl turned around from digging in the candy to see these three looking right at her.  She game UNGLUED! Even though they were innocently standing at the right place at the right time, their chests swelled pride thinking they had successfully spooked someone.

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
