The Happenings of Week Twelve

MARCH 19th

After school, Lexie had storytime at the library.  That afternoon, I ran around getting supplies together for Dylan's science fair.  That evening, we went to Dylan's science fair.  He was so proud of his project and his trophy for his hard work!

MARCH 20th

The big kids had a pre-scheduled 2 hour delay from school, so we got to sleep in a bit.  That afternoon, I took Lexie to gymnastics.  While she was in class, I had to do some shopping at Costco.  That evening, I had an awesome girls night out to dinner with my friends to celebrate Steph's birthday!

MARCH 21st

After school, we met our friends at Burger King for a playdate.  The kids had a great time running around in the indoor playground.  Afterward, Steph and I browsed Babies R Us.  We are due within weeks of each other!  That evening, we went to a friend's house for dinner.


MARCH 22nd

We spent the afternoon visiting my parents.  After having dinner with them, I drove Dylan to a friend's house for a sleepover.  The rest of the night was spent at home doing laundry and relaxing.


MARCH 23rd

We had our annual Easter Party/Egg Hunt with our group of friends.  It was so much fun!  Afterward, Dylan left with a friend for a sleepover.  Grant left to spend some time with his brother, and the girls and I were on our own.

MARCH 24th

This was one of those horrible, no good days.  The night before, my morning sickness started getting worse.  There was no change when I woke up, and I ended up very sick all day, and in bed until 5 pm.  I couldn't keep anything down, and I honestly should have gone to the hospital for an IV.  Luckily, when I woke up, I was able to get some fluids, but I kept getting sick all night.  Also?  This day was the 1 year anniversary of Grant's best friend, Jason, passing away unexpectedly.  Plus, Lily fell out of her crib and landed on her head.  I was happy to see this day end!


MARCH 25th

We woke up to 6 inches of snow, so the kids had a 2 hour delay.  Dylan had a really bad headache (I sure hope he isn't inheriting my migraines!), I was still having a horrible time with the morning sickness, and Lexie missed the bus.  So?  Dylan stayed home, and I let Lexie enjoy a snow day.  I didn't feel up to driving her to school for 1 hour and 40 minutes worth of class!  I "enjoyed" a sick day at home in my pajamas!



  1. Awh bless them! They are so cute!

  2. Overall, it sounds like you had a fun week. It's amazing how you can still squeeze in so much fun even when having morning sickness. (Don't you love how they call it morning sickness, but it lasts all day long!)


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
