Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.

Here comes Peter Cottontail

Wow, can you tell that my job is actually getting busier?!?! Two weeks without a post...has to be a record! First things first...

Saturday before Easter, we had swimming in the AM and then headed up to St. Cloud for the day to help Auntie Becca and Uncle Pete move to their new house! I still haven't seen it since I stayed back with the kids while others brought the loads over (oh, darn!) but I think it only took two trips, which is really good. And when we left, there wasn't much left to do. I really liked their townhouse but can't wait to see their new house. The kids didn't nap while we were there, so everybody was really tired on the way home. However, if I remember correctly, only Jim and Korri slept since I was driving and Austin and Finn were watching Polar Express (yes, it is spring, but whatever!). Austin got to come with us for a little bit before his dad came to our house to pick him up.

Then on Sunday, the Easter Bunny came while we were sleeping and left lots of goodies for the kids!
Peter Cottontail isn't new, but a HUGE hit every year. We weren't sure what the Easter Bunny was going to bring, but think what he finally decided on was a good idea: Convertible Roller Blades for Finn and Roller Skates for Korrie. The hard part was that Easter morning, we got up, saw the goodies, had to try them on, get to church and over to NeNe's all by Noon-ish! It was a bit hurried to say the least. But the kids LOVE their blades/skates:
But the bottom one, Finn is only holding on with one hand! Korri was a bit slippy, but did really well on the grass/carpet. We hope you all had wonderful Easter and remember every day that Jesus Christ is Risen!
