Restful Weekend.

First of all THANK YOU so much for all of your kind words and well wishes. We are so thrilled about our news and still trying to wrap our heads around it all. I am taking it one day at a time. I have still been very sick- VERY sick. But one dehydration check at the doctor this week led me to a RX of Zofran dissolveable tablets. It seems to be working! I am keeping some things down and able to make it through the day at school. Never mind that the 30 pills cost $85.00 due to the fact that my insurance will only cover 12 a month. 12! I can take up to 8 a day (I only take 2- to make them last) and they will only cover 12. I am going to work on this little problem tomorrow  by making some phone calls to my doctor and my insurance company.

Because of this magic, gold coated pill I have been able to do a few more things. Friday we were out of school and my little guy and I could not have been happier about it.  We made a trek to the library for story time followed by a lunch date with Mindy and Drew at McDonald's. It was a lovely day and one that was well needed. It made me very excited for our upcoming Spring Break.  Other than that trip on Friday our weekend has been pretty low key. Friday night we ordered pizza and watched basketball. Saturday we went to a birthday party and watched basketball, and today we went to church, some open houses and continued to watch basketball.  I have caught quite a few naps and way too many episodes of Jake and the Neverland Pirates and am hoping that this restful weekend is just what we all needed to make it through another week. Here are some pics from our lovely, lazy weekend.

This pretty much sums up our weekend!

This kid is AMAZING at seek and find books.
He was finding Waldo way faster than I could.

Parachute fun at story time.

We planted seeds and colored after story time.
Fun Friday times.
 It is now 10:30 and I am off to bed.
Here's hoping for a great week for all!!

Where have I been?

Where have I been you ask?
Well, my life has been a little different than normal lately.

Due to this:

Mixed with this:

I have spent a LOT of time here:

and can usually be found here:

or here as soon as Clark as in bed, found here:

Yes- I have been so sick and extremely exhausted, but it is a beautiful blessing that we could not be more happy about!! I am only 9 weeks. It is still very early, but I am not good at keeping secrets and I just had to share. Plus I gave up Facebook for Lent and I fell soooo disconnected. I just had to tell you all!

I hope that you understand my absence. I can't wait to tell you more- YES, there is MORE to tell but that will have to wait. Just had to let this news slip out first!!
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. In between naps and hugging the toilet, we have been watching a lot of basketball around here. In case you did not hear our KENTUCKY WILDCATS are the SEC champs! Let's just say life is GOOD around the Snyder house these days. Really Good.

Birthday Weekend

This weekend was one for celebrating. This weekend my sweet husband turned 29. I have had a rough week- R-O-U-G-H. I was hoping that Friday would be a quick one at school and I would feel like myself again by Friday night so that I could celebrate with my boys. Thankfully my wish came true. Friday was a quick day at school, after school Clark and I headed to Lexington to the Little Lambs Consignment sale where we managed to pick up a few good deals like some super cute Kelly's Kids swimming trunks, and a Hanna Andersson jacket just to name a few.We then met my friend Libby because she works at Keeneland and helped us out by picking up the Vineyard Vines tie S wanted for his birthday and I was so excited to share in her discount. Since we were on Tates Creek Road and it was 6:00 at this point, I decided to call into Malone's for some dinner to-go. Stuart approved and so I picked up some yummy Lexingtonian salads and sushi and we headed home to celebrate. Stuart only had to work a half day and got to play some golf so his day had been great so far. We got home and made him a special birthday table and just enjoyed a quiet dinner at home.

The Birthday Boy's seat.
Complete with his own box of GS cookies.

Yummy cupcakes C and I picked up from a lovely local- SugarMama's Cupcakes!

The birthday meal was complete with entertainment by a local drummer.

 On Saturday we were invited to a tractor themed birthday party at the Fire Station. Let's just say that Clark could not have been more excited! It was a 2 year old boy's wonderland and we enjoyed spending the afternoon celebrating sweet Lawsen and playing with all his cool toys.

And we wrapped up our Saturday back at Malone's to celebrate with the entire Snyder family. We enjoyed a long meal of chatting, news sharing, and LOTS of food. It was very enjoyable evening celebrating Stuart.
The Birthday Boy and The Wild Man.
I wish you all understood how hard it is to get a picture of these two and all 4 eyes be open.

Grammy and Clark.

This weekend has been just what I needed. It is now time to begin thinking about the week ahead. As you might have guessed it- Clark is napping and S is at the gym and I am preparing for school tomorrow. My new student teacher begins this week so I will be heading over to school soon to make sure I have my act together and things are all ready for her to begin her time in our little classroom.

I hope you all have had a restful weekend and maybe even did a little celebrating of your own.
Hope it is a GREAT week for all.
