Our WalkAmerica fundraising effort was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who so generously donated, we were able to raise $2,613.00 for the March of Dimes to help in the fight against prematurity.
We had perfect weather, in the 60s and mostly sunny. The girls were absolute angels and didn't complain once. They loved being out in the fresh air with so much to look at and listen to. All in all, it was a wonderful day and we look forward to doing it again next year!

The girls participated in their very first Easter Egg hunt on Saturday at Grandma Gladys' house. The weather was perfect and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Eden LOVED the basket, and wanted to carry it herself the whole time. You couldn't pry that basket out of her fingers. I would pick up each egg and she would take it in her other hand and put it in the basket. She was very serious about her job of putting eggs in the basket. Holland was more interested in discovering what was inside the eggs, and chewed on each piece of candy with the wrapper still on. They were very cute.
We welcomed another cousin into the world! Kate Isabel was born on April 20th at 12:27am, weighing 7 pounds 6 ounces, 20 inches long. That brings the grand total to 9 grandkids for my parents. I say the more the merrier, but don't look at me for number 10!

Have you checked out how much we have raised so far for WalkAmerica?
We are cruising along, not far off from our new goal of $2,000. The walk is coming up soon now. For all of you who plan on walking with our team (or the St. Joe's team)...we are meeting at my house on Monday the 17th, at 2:00, to make t-shirts and signs to carry with us on the walk. If you are interested, bring a white t-shirt and come on over. We are planning to put pics of the girls on our shirts. I have photo transfer paper and some supplies (fabric markers and patches), but if you have any clever ideas of your own, feel free to be creative and bring your own supplies. I will have stuff for sandwiches. My mom is bringing chips and dip. Email me or call if you think you'd like to stop by, so I know how many to plan for.
If you can't make it, but would like us to make you a shirt, drop off a white tee to my house. We'll decorate it and bring it to the walk.
Oh, and by the way, if you are in any way offended by a messy house, call me, and we'll do it at your place instead! Cause I doubt I'll be cleaning...much...
One more thing, as usual, please don't come if you are sick, or have kids who are sick. No stuffy noses, coughs, vomiting, etc...even if you are sure it's just allergies. We can't handle ANY MORE sickness! But we still love you!
