Happy Easter!

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics
I wanted to wish you all a very Happy and Blessed Easter!
We have so many reasons to be grateful and we are truly blessed.

We are getting ready to run over to my brothers for some good grubb'in... the whole family will be there.
Had a great few days up in Beaver w/ mom and dad ... we measured and drew out our cabin site with some orange spray paint. It's going to be sooo much fun getting this started.

Mike posted our testimony on audio to a You Tube slideshow over on Matthew's blog @ http://www.whomagoo.blogspot.com/ ...
If you watch or listen to any at all.. please listen to Mike's ... He did such a fantastic good job!
You can see the quilt he sewed and the crib he made from scratch. We sound a little like Sylvester the Cat or Daffy Duck ... the audio is a bit funny. Actually, I just added the link to my blog as well, it is below included in the testimony.

KVBC Channel 3 did have portions of our testimony on the local news at 4 and 6pm the next night.
We're so lucky to have Beth Fisher keeping the pressure on our lawmakers.

I got an e~mail from the Senator that drafted this bill... he is feeling optimistic... he and others feel it may fit into the budget! I will know on the 13th if it passed the Senate.
If it passes the Senate, it will need to pass in the Assembly.

Have a great Easter! Can't wait to run around and visit your blogs!!!!

You both did great.. Had me in tears.. I have a rule that no one cries alone while in my presence.. Evidently, that rule also applies when just hearing someone getting emotional!

Still praying... :)

Terri, you & Mike did a wonderful job on your testimony (even with the daffy duck audio!) I imagined myself as a legislator listening to you both. They had to be touched by your story. They could feel your stress, but that was a good thing for them to feel. I hope you are sucessful with the bill and I look forward someday to you speaking to the U.S.Congress! I am proud of both of you!

Hi! I am a regular on dan's blah blah blog and on dorky dad, so I thought I'd some over here and peruse around!
Sounds like you've been through some intensely traumatic trials in the last few years. I plan to read even more on here when I have more time!

Hope you had a great easter!
