Drew and I went to Greenville for Easter and the week following while I was on Spring Break from school. We had a very nice time seeing family and friends there. Drew got to do his first Easter Egg Hunt while we were there. We filled plastic eggs with his favorite - M&Ms (which he calls "M-ez") and scattered them throughout my parents' front yard. I was sure he would run all over and grab them up. I was wrong. He did not want to go in the grass or into the flower beds, so we had to move all the eggs onto the sidewalk. Once the eggs were on the sidewalk, Drew was finally ready to gather them, but he didn't do it very energetically.

I got the Slice die cutting machine in December, and it came with a card to send away for a free design card called "Seasons." I had seen what was on it, and I knew it had some snowflakes. I started this layout about a month ago and got it almost finished, but I was waiting for the new design card to come so I could add some snowflakes to finish off the page. My new card came yesterday, so on our snowy April evening last night, I finished up the page. This page is based on a sketch from http://pagemaps.com I finished this page while Jim and I watched the NCAA finals. UNC won, so I ended up doing pretty well in my brackets. Jim put my brackets on ESPN.com, and of all the millions of people who did their brackets there, I ended up ranking 39,210. I was pretty proud of myself!

Jim thinks I should make these books and sell them on Etsy or Ebay. I might try that after school gets out.
Jim is at the Final Four games this evening! He was able to get two free tickets from a guy who golfs at Rackham, so he and Kevin Johns are there tonight. They were so excited! I filled out brackets this year, and I had picked three of the Final Four teams correctly. I picked Michigan State and UNC as my final two, with UNC winning it all. I am excited to see if my final two and my winner are correct!
