Family Date Night

I guess I kinda need to update everyone on the building situation, but long story short, we have decided to hold off on breaking ground until March, which means we are taking our time getting our current home ready for the market.

Saturday was one of those days where we worked most of the day but really didn't have a whole lot to show for it. So we decided to treat ourselves to dinner that night since we had been given a gift card and needed a night off.

Ellie took this opportunity to doll herself up in a fancy dress and shoes.  Bless her!

After dinner, we took the kids to Spirit Halloween Store because it's kinda a big deal in our family.  Our kids are festive if nothing else, so they were more than happy to take all the pictures for me! That's not always the case, so I jumped at the opportunity to have them pose at every little stop.

We also needed to make a Wal-Mart run, so you can image their pure joy when we discovered they were putting out the Christmas decor.  Seems a tiny bit premature, but whatever. We will take all the holiday spirit we can!

Eli missed the photo opt with Santa, but don't you worry because there will be plenty more opportunities throughout the season, but first, let's enjoy Fall Break and the actual fall season. It's still in the 90s here and I think it might stay that way and then turn winter overnight. Let's hope not.

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
