School Spirit Week

Yesterday I mentioned that it's school Spirit Week in honor of Homecoming. We can't resist a good theme, so it's been so much fun getting into the spirit this week! Monday was PJ Day, which is my least favorite because it's such a fine line between cute and trashy, you know?  I'm always worried that I'll miss the mark and send my kids looking like little mud-flatters.  Is that even a thing?  My dad always used that term, so my apologies if it's fake.  Anyway, Ellie wore pajamas but Eli did not so I didn't get any pictures.

Tuesday was Jersey Day, and we were covered with Eli.  He literally had about a dozen or so to choose from.  Ellie, on the other hand, didn't have a single Jersey in her wardrobe.  I happened to remember that Eric's mom had given us one of his old football jerseys, so I dug it out for Ellie. 

Bless her prissy little heart, she was so excited but also wanted to glam up her look.  We found an adorable pair of skinny jeans and a bow from basketball season.  I turned it around backwards on her head so that it would look like a cheerleading bow, and she was thrilled!  I'm so glad we got to put the jersey to good use. What a sweet little memory for Eric and his mom.

Wednesday was originally supposed to be Camo Day, but then we had picture day.  I showed you that gem yesterday. Even though we have plenty of camo around the house thanks to Eric's hobby of quail hunting, I'm not sure either one of my kiddos would have wanted to participate.  It's probably a good thing that it got axed. 

With Camo Day out, we were super excited for USA Day.  We dragged out our Fourth of July wardrobe for Ellie, complete with her light-up bow.  I'm dead serious, ya'll.  It has batteries and everything.  For the life of me, I couldn't find Eli's July 4th outfit, but he was super pumped to wear a Titans jersey and just call it patriotic since it's blue and white.

Our final day was Gator Spirit Day.  It was kinda weird not seeing them in blue and gold like they wore last year, but they make cute, little Gators if I do say so myself.

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
