Disney On Ice

Ellie and I have longstanding tradition of going with my mom to see Disney on Ice every year.  After a very long hiatus due to the pandemic, it was absolutely amazing to be back this year.  As always, Gigi came in clutch with front row seats. 

We drove up to Lexington early on Saturday morning and made it just in time for lunch.  We were excited to visit with my family, do a little shopping with my sister and meet up with my sister-in-law and niece before the show.

Ellie was practically beside herself as we were escorted down to our rink-side seats.  The view was absolutely spectacular, and the company was even better. 

We cheered, and clapped and waved as our favorite characters took the stage, and the arena was bursting with energy as little voices sang right along to the familiar Disney tunes. 

With scenes from iconic movies such as "The Little Mermaid," "Moana," "Tangled," "Beauty and the Beast," and "Frozen,"  we were wildly entertained and completely enchanted all evening.

In true Disney fashion, the costumes were impeccable, the performers were amazing, and the energy was palatable. I thought maybe inching closer to the teen years would dull the excitement for my sweet girl, but she was completely in awe of the show and just as excited as she was at two when we attended her very first performance. 

 At the end of the day, I think that's what we love so much about Disney. It has a incredible ability to bring generations of loved ones together, which is exactly what Walt had in mind when he envisioned Disneyland all those years ago.

We’re doing our part to keep that vision alive and enjoying every minute of it! Three generations of family were sitting side-by-side as we took it all in, and the most magical memories were made!

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
