March Madness Explained!

I have been waiting FOR EVER to “publish” this post! And…

So remember my March Madness posts 1, 2 and 3? I guess it’s time to share the rest of the story…

On the first day of spring Mike and Veronica celebrated their seventh anniversary. Spring is all about new life, which takes me back to the first day of March… remember Veronica’s birthday. Well, I could not show you all the photos. I had to save them until today. Take a peek…

Figured it out yet?
Well, the photographer, instead of saying “say cheese” while she took the photo, shared some very exciting news…

Yes, you read that correctly!


Now go back and look at the photos again… priceless!
Squeals and tears of joy.
Now go back one more time and look at Jaxson’s face…
poor guy… i think we may have scarred him for life!

But here is my favorite photo of the day…

Veronica and her treasured friend since elementary school, Jacky. So much emotion… PURE JOY!

We are all beyond excited… we have prayed for this for so very long and God has answered our prayers!

So there is more to the story. Can you handle it? Not sure if I can!

It goes back to the day before Valentines Day. Veronica had not been feeling well, sick with a cold. So after church I made her some chicken soup. I asked Mark if he was going with me and he said no. As I grabbed my purse to head out I noticed I had a text message from Veronica asking if Dad would come because they had something they wanted to run by us. So on the way out to their place we were wondering what in the world they wanted to do to their townhouse now. They had just redone their kitchen. When we arrived they gave us each a valentines gift bag and this is what happened…

sorry… couldn’t figure out how to rotate the video.

and no, two jars of baby food does not mean twins!

Congratulations Mike and Veronica! God is so good! And you are so loved.

Enough for now…
I’m exhausted just from reliving it all and sharing such wonderful news!
My cup overflows!
