Easter is EARLY!

Dane is on the Giants this year for baseball. He has practiced in the snow, sleet, wind and rain. The boy must love it. He waved and smiled as he made the first run for his team this season.

Madsen giving his Dad the Bear pin. One of Dane's good buddies. Madsen and Dane have known each other since Nursery.

Dane pinning his Mother's Bear pin on me. Dane is an eager cub scout. I am proud of his persistance in getting the requirements done.

I watched Mallory and Sariah while their older sister Makayla went to the temple for the first time. They were so silly and cute playing in the chair while we watched Dane's baseball game. These girls are very creative and one of their favorite pretend games is playing "Princess Big Butt" where they stuff pillows in their pants and pretend to be Princess's. Talk about hillarious.

Meagan came over to talk and say "Hi" during the game. Here is another friend that Dane has known since Nursery. Her brother Jace is on the same team as Dane.

The Sunday before Easter, we celebrated. See those early morning faces? Devree and I had to fly to Memphis for another check up on Monday and Todd and the boys will meet up with us at the Hamblins in MO. We will celebrate Easter with most of the Hamblin side.

Devree had her early MRI of her brain and at "E" clinic she was decorating her Easter eggs on the board.
We were so lucky that Breck could come and join us for lunch at St. Jude's. I forgot to take his picture but we had a lovely catch up on the latest news.

We were so happy we ran into Emma Wilcox and her Mom, Catherine and David! David was a little baby when we all met at the very first of treatment back in January 2009. As you can see Emma is doing well.

Devree got fitted with her new hearing aid! It has already made a difference. We are so happy! I whispered in her right ear and she heard Me! So exciting. Devree is getting used to the funny feeling in her ear because it goes DEEP into the ear canal. She had a hearing test where the Dr. plugged her good ear and she could hear with her hearing aid at very low decibels. Another prayer answered.

Standing in front of the St. Jude statue with David being bored and Catherine. David is so adorable and so grown up. He has lost his baby looks. What a treat and joy to have a long chat with them. Devree and I couldn't be happier to see Emma well and happy along with her family. We hope your Tuesday has been as wonderful as our Tuesday!
