We hope everyone had a great Easter this year.
Ours was full of sneezing, coughing, lots of Kleenex, and of course sleeping. Yes we are ALL sick. It started about a week ago. What I thought was a simple head cold that would pass in a few days, turned into more than I bargained for. By the third day I had a sore throat and a really nasty cough. By the end of last week Brian then became sick and within two days of him getting sick the girl's were also blessed with this wonderful cold.
Because of us all being sick, we ended up missing our traditional Easter dinner at Brian's parent's Saturday. We didn't think it would be a good idea to share our germs. Especially since Auntie Nancy had Nicholas at the hospital a few weeks ago. We didn't think she needed another middle of the night visit to the ER. Besides we wouldn't want anyone to share their germs with us. The last thing we need is to have two babies spending more time at the hospital. I think three months was enough.
The good news is we are all on the road to recovery. The girl's still have a cough, and a chapped nose from all the wiping, but their temperment is great! They are still playing, running around, and of course fighting like they always do.
Since we didn't make it for Easter dinner last night, Brian's parents decided they would come over today to the house of germs and bring us dinner and of course they spoiled the girl's with lots of Easter goodies. So we didn't actually miss out on Easter dinner after all.
Last night while the girl's were sleeping, I put together their new Dora table and chairs that we got them for Easter. They don't understand who the Easter Bunny is yet, but they sure were excited when they came downstairs and saw their new table with a few chocolates, a little basketball and soccer ball waiting for them.

Hi guys,
HAPPY EASTER TO EVERYONE...I love your new table and chairs. It will be fun for you both when the weather gets nice to have this for outside in your new backyard (when you get your new grass). It looks like Olivia had her eye on the "chocolate bunny" more than the ball that was in her chair. I hope everyone enjoyed. See you very soon.
Love Grandma, Grandpa and Abbey.

The girls are gorgeous and doing so amazing. It's great to see this after having an inkling of what they have been through. They are beautiful. Love the pic as well on your profile when they are little, little. I remember those socks! ;-)

Happy Easter!

Glad to hear you are all getting better. Hopefully when everyone is well and the weather is improved we can get together, Elizabeth really misses her playmates.

Your girls are adorable! It's amazing to see how far they come in such a short period of time, isn't it??

I enjoyed your Preemie post, below. After our triplets finished their 6 week stay in the NICU (after having been born 9 weeks early) ... I felt like I deserved an honorary doctoral degree >> I was able to throw medical lingo around with the best of them!!

Hi Shannon, not sure if you'll remember me, but my twins were NICU neighbours of Avery and Olivia at Mac. I stumbled on your blog entirely by accident! My name is Angela, and my girls' names are Meredith and Courtney. I think Meredith was across from you guys in Pod D after one of her bowel surgeries... I'm so happy to see your girls are doing so well, and they are gorgeous! Hopefully we'll see you at the McPera picnic in June! Take care, Angela

I do remember you Angela.
As a matter of fact I was just thinking about you last week and wondering how Meredith & Courtney were doing.If you get a chance please e-mail me with an update on the girl's. I would love to hear what you all are up to. My e-mail address is listed under my profile.
