Weekend Fun

After several short work weeks, five days back into the routine was refreshing...and long!  Ha! In keeping with our typical pace, we had a weekend full of activities and kicked it all off with a birthday party for our baseball buddy, Logan. 

Mason had already left when I remembered to take a picture, so I hate that he's not in it.  Nonetheless, it was good to see some of our boys back together.  We start winter conditioning (aka hitting practice) again next Sunday.  I can't wait!

Saturday started off with some basketball.  Our team is still undefeated, but barely.  We played a rough game and things got heated.  I know I can get "right" with some hollering during a baseball game, but I'm over it as soon as we leave.  I could care less about basketball, so it was interesting to sit back and enjoy the chaos.  

After the game we ran by Sam's because Eric needs two new tires thanks to stupid roofing nails.  If you're keeping count, that would be FOUR flat tires between the two of us in less than six months.  I'm over it.  

They ended up having to order the tires, so we split up since I was shooting a wedding that afternoon.  We had a little time before we needed to be there, so Ellie and I stopped for lunch at Azipp Pizza.  (That's Pizza spelled backwards.)

After lunch, we headed straight to the wedding.  It was at The Charleston, which is the most gorgeous venue!  It's right up Ellie's ally with it's grand staircase, white marble trim, and gold accents.  I took a picture of the bathroom because we were both in love with it!  Wonder if Eric will let me do something like this in the new house? 

The wedding was for a church friend, so it was nice getting to enjoy celebrating with our friends.  Ellie loves a good party and danced the night away.  Eric and I have decided that she isn't allowed out of the house once she turns 16.

Sunday we had church and ate at Steak 'N Shake for lunch before heading to Wal-Mart for the kids to spend their Christmas money.  They did great staying within budget, but not so great staying on schedule.  We were in there for two hours.  Luckily, we got our groceries too, so I didn't have to go back out.  Instead I worked on getting caught up on laundry.  

This picture was taken as the Sunday Night Blues started to set in, but how grownup does this girl look?

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
