I took about 30 and thought I would share a few of my favs.
He even got to wear shorts for the first time of the season. I thought it would be a good idea to break them in since he will be wearing them a lot next week while we are in FL! That is right FL!! Next week is my Spring Break and Clark and I are flying to FL to stay with my grandma. She lives in a little retirement community in Winter Haven. My momma is going to be there too and hoefully we will do a whole lot of nothing. Maybe a little pool time and possibly a one day adventure to somewhere Mickey in Orlando. We shall see. But until then, I need to wrap up this week in 3rd grade, celebrate Easter and pack!
Told ya! Is he not THE CUTEST Egg Hunter EVER???

So Clark got a NEW CAR at the consignment sale this weekend. It did belong to my friend Lisa and her adorable triplets. He LOVES it but there is one problem... He can't make it go! He loves to sit in it, pretend to drive it and even push it around, but he has yet to master the Fred Flinstone and make it go! Hopefully with some practice this skill will come. But until then, it sure is fun to watch him try!
We are so excited for outdoor play weather. I will keep you posted if there is any change in the driving ability. But for now, Pushing works!

I think I sat down one time...maybe. Friday and Saturday I was at our MOPS Consignment Sale from earlier than 7am-later both days and I left at 11:00ish pm on Saturday. It was so much fun, got lots of cute stuff for C, I met lots of people and it was our BIGGEST SALE YET!! We got it all set up, items sold and torn down in 3 days. I had so much help from all my MOPS mommies and I am already looking forward to the sale in August.
So, as I said- I did not leave that church until 11:00 Saturday night and I had to be at my NB mentor meeting in Paris (20 or so mins. away) at 8:00am Sunday morning. I watched the other girl in my group box and get her portfolio ready to mail. Mine however was not ready to mail. I only have a few last minute things to do, but I will have it mailed by Friday. (fingers crossed).
I got home from Paris at about 1:00 to find that my good little boys had gone to church on their own! (I was very impressed. Well, I was very impressed with Stuart anyway. He was with Clark nonstop from Thursday night until Sunday afternoon while I had this crazy weekend.- HE IS THE BEST)
After church, Clark napped, I showered and then we headed to the Fayette Mall in Lexington for a his buddy Layton's 2nd birthday. We got to experience Build A Bear and it was fun! The kids were so cute with their little animals. Clark made a "puppy" and we named him Big Cuz and gave him a UK bandanna. So cute!! We got home from the party(and some mall shopping) at about 6:00 and I was SOOO ready for bed. I worked on some NB stuff, checked email and talked to my husband for the first time in what seemed like forever and went to bed way early. It was quite the weekend.
This weekend is just as exciting as I have 4 Rags Land parties, headed to mom and dad's and mailing that portfolio! Gotta Love March!! :) Enjoy the pictures of the adorable boys from the party!

Do you not LOVE Clark's shirt!! He did not need a name tag!
Each guest got to put a heart with a wish in Layton's bunny!
Clark and Big Cuz. He had such a good time, and I was glad to be there with him after not seeing him all weekend. I am so glad he still LOVES me!
I just adore this kid!

My March has been jam packed with baby showers, wedding showers, finishing my National Board portfolio, running a consignment sale, Rags Land bookings and birthday parties! This weekend is our BIG consignment sale for our MOPS group and I am the coordinator. Shopping consignment is my favorite thing to do, so I love this job, but this weekend is jam packed. We have no school tomorrow (THANK GOODNESS), but I am working consignor drop off ALL DAY, Saturday is the sale , and Sunday morning at 8:00 I am supposed to have my portfolio ready to pack up with my mentor group, followed by a 2 year old birthday party at BuildABear. I do not know how to do just one thing at a time! ha!
So, I doubt I will have any time for basketball watching, but my guys will watch enough for all of us...no doubt about that!
Enjoy these pics of my little WILDCAT and come shop our sale this weekend!
I will be there from sun up until sun down!!
C-A-T-S CATS CATS CATS!!
GO BIG BLUE!!
This one just makes me laugh!! He is a very cute little fan isn't he?

Yesterday he walked in the door from the babysitter yelling "EAT, EAT!" So I put him in his chair thinking he could have a snack while I cooked dinner and we might actually all eat together! Well, Clark had a different idea. I began browning meat and he was snacking on Cheddar Chex mix, and a Gerber granola bar. Once he had finished that, he began screaming for "KIX MOMMA!", so I gave him a tiny handful of Cheerios (because to him all cereal is Kix). This did not satisfy the monster and he continued to scream for more. I told him he needed to wait for dinner and I get him down from the highchair and direct him to his fridge magnets. I was hoping he would play with the carwash and FridgeDJ while I fixed dinner. I am at the stove adding pasta to the boiling water to see him run by with a bag of chips! No, I am not kidding. He got into the pantry and got out a bag of tortilla chips and ran into the living room with Barney at his heels!
This kid cannot be stopped! He polished off that bag with help from his furry big brother and then opened the fridge and says "DORA!", as he points to the Dora yogurt. So, I am thinking well Dora yogurt is better than chips, he could use something remotely healthy so I put him back in the chair with the yogurt. He eats that, and puts lots of it in his hair, and I finish dinner. Eventually Stuart gets home, I bathe Clark and Stuart does jammies. He is clean, and full...one would think!
As soon as Stuart and I sat down to eat our pasta, Clark yells! He sticks his hand in Stuart's bowl and begs for some! SERIOUSLY!!! He ate several bites of pasta from both of us and then wanted milk!! IS THIS NORMAL?
I am beginning to get concerned! ha. How will I afford him at 16?
Should I just tell him no and let him scream? Is this a phase?
Does he have a hollow leg? This has been quite an experience!
Does anyone have advice on the situation??
The chip thief in action!
The chip thief and his accomplice!
This boy can eat!

things going on, but this cute kid directly to the right always
makes me stop and smile! I just love him so much. He makes
our days brighter and we are SO BLESSED to have him in our life. Stuart and I are both stressed with deadlines and work (prayers appreciated), but coming home to this makes things just disappear. Just look at that face, how could you not be absolutely in love with all he does! Thanks Clark for being you and for letting us be your mommy & daddy!
