Spring is here!

I'm so excited that spring is finally here!!! This week just might be up to 80 degrees and I can't wait. Tomorrow is our Easter playgroup hosted by yours truly... which means nothing other then I delegated stuff out... Easter egg hunt... bunny and egg shaped cookies for decorating....candy... and playground! Hopefully it turns out well. Isabel is super excited to see her friends.
I hope everyone had a chance to stop by Courtney's blog for her contest... It ends tonight! *fingerscrossed-ihopeiwin*
My sister is leaving in 23 days to go to Africa for 9 months to do her research for her dissertation, we are going to miss her but are SO HAPPY for her to be heading over to Dar es Salam in Tanzania (Leslie I hope I spelled all the right!)

Everyone please don't forget to donate to our March of Dimes team, even $1 will help!

Oh and I signed up as a volunteer for the NICU Parents group at the hospital. I can't wait to get started. It's a group that helps to support current parents of NICU kids and provide moral support that the nurses and MD's just can't provide. And if I ever have to have another baby in that situation.... the new center private room pods are AMAZING!!! each baby get private room (multiples are all together in bigger room) the rooms are about the size of a normal bedroom, with at least one couch and chair, breastpump, computer (for nurses), privacy screen and sliding double glass doors. Hello Taj Mahal. The hospital is building a new wing for the NICU and we'll be one of the top 3 in size in the whole country. They are having a Ronald McDonald type facility on the 2nd floor for only NICU families, showers, washer and dryers, computers, kitchen, meditation room etc. (as well as a large Ronald McDonald house on campus for everyone else to use)
I just have to go thru the hospital orientation and get a TB test and I'm in!!! That's the big exciting news at our house.

Sorry the post is a bit boring, no good stories about Isabel eating cat food....:)
She is entered in a contest so if you have a second want to look at the pictures I have to choose from .

Don't forget to donate!!!

I can log in again! I haven't been able to for some unknown reason.. you'd think I forgot to pay a bill. So on to more exciting news. My dad came into town last weekend and stayed for 48 hrs. I love it when he comes. He fixed my car, played and played and played with Isabel. Caught Isabel doing her 1st self accomplished booty shake to music and her 1st somersault, who knew the song on the closing credit of Night at the Museum was so exciting. Sat. we headed to a parade, the Moolah Shriner's Circus was in town and Isabel LOVED all the "Izzy sized" stuff (read small like her), We tossed her up in the air.. and up and up and threw her on to couches and beds. She loved it. In keeping up with the McLees family tradition we headed to Costco, twice, and Izzy got to eat her hotdog with her G'pa. Of course I don't have my camera so if I took any pictures I'll get them up. My dad got all the cute ones. So I can finally get back on line and stay up to date. We are still working hard to raise money for March of Dimes. My banners don't work well but we have over $250 already and I'd love to have everyone donate $5 who reads this. I'm off to get some work done and maybe get my Etsy store up and running.......
