Dang! Been so busy with messages, calls, etc. about Destiny and the babies. Also, my young 33-year-old cousin died today of a heart attack. He was an only child and his mom, well, I don't even know the words to describe how she is.

Sending out names now!

Ocean Springs, MS

Otway, OH(Zone 6b)

Got mine, thanks

Ocean Springs, MS

So sorry to hear about your cousin. Sending prayers.

I got my name too.

Ocean Springs, MS

Thank you, Linda Kay. In the past 3 weeks, Destiny has lost 3 classmates. But this one is hard because she and Heath were close cousins. Even with caring for the twins, she is wanting to call his mom. I told her just to focus on the twins. It is so unbelievable!

Otway, OH(Zone 6b)

Julie, prayers for your family.

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

Great Place to look for goodies for my easter Pal :)

Happy birthday, Crystal! ♥

Susie, looks like you'll have a nice shady place to relax. I want to build something like this off the east side of my house- one day! LOL

Linda Kay, you got your box out fast! Superwoman! I bought all but one thing for my box today. Just one more thing and I'll mail out later this week! :)

Destiny is still in the hospital. Her red cell count is 1/2 of what it should be, so they are probably going to do a blood transfusion. Babies are doing very well. Oh, I'm so in love all over again times two! ♥

(susie) Hastings, MI(Zone 5a)

My Basket is packed & Ready to go out today just trying to gear up to the cold outdoor they are calling for snow today by the lake shore not sure if it will hit us or not .
