March for Babies 2012

We have a lot going on - and nothing at the same time.  :)  It has been in the 70's and 80's around here which is absolutely amazing for March in New England, so we've been outside as much as possible.  Colby's getting over pneumonia and the girls are getting over the worst yeast rashes ever.  (You know it's bad when the doctor comments "Wow, that's a lot more serious than I expected.")  Colby's almost totally potty trained.  The girls are itching to walk - and they're so close.  My graduate class is winding down with a few final papers and projects.  We're making the final 50-day push at school.

And the March for Babies is coming up.

Last year our family team, Connor & Colby's Crew, raised over $9,000 with the help of amazing friends and family.  2 years ago we raised just under $9,000.  This year we're aiming for $10,000 but fundraising hasn't really picked up yet.  I'm hoping it will, but I'm grateful for every little bit we get.  My brother is walking in San Antonio as his finals won't be finished in time to be home for May 12th.  My sister-in-law (almost- she and my brother are getting married on June 23rd) is walking with friends in New York.  It's so amazing to see how much these kids I love so much have touched others lives.

Like last year I made a video to share our story and to hopefully inspire donations.  It hasn't worked like I hoped yet, but it still makes me smile.  (And cry a little)  Here's the video for 2012 on Youtube.

The HD link is here.

If you'd like to donate to our team I'd greatly appreciate it.

Donate to Connor & Colby's Crew.

I have lots more to write about our goings on.  The potty training adventures.  Mobile twins.  Sicknesses galore.  The girls 1st birthday.  Our trip to Texas.  And on and on and on, but first I should write that paper and do the powerpoint presentation due Sunday.   That hasn't been started.  :-/
