MARCH OF DIMES EASTER BASKET EGG-STRAVAGANZA 2010

QUOTE OF THE DAY:



"Happiness is a warm puppy" -- Charles Schulz





WILL THE REAL EASTER BUNNY PLEASE SIGN IN?







Mr & Mrs Bunny FuFu, married Easter 2008, in my backyard.

Easter 2008--when I got scalped at the groomer right before the wedding.
I was the bridesmaid.


It was that time of the year again where Mommy works.

The Easter Basket Egg-Stravaganza for the March of Dimes.

Here are a few of the baskets. Each department could choose any theme they wanted--SJMC Business Office choose "Kids Fun & Games".



This is the SJMC Business Office basket. Mommy bought ice-cream cone bubbles, coloring books, crayons, and chocolate bunnies--guess whoever bid the most didn't plan and sharing it with any doggies. It went for $161.45.



The biggest bid for the whole event was this SPA basket. A doctor bid $1000.00 for it, won it and then said it was for his wife and daughters. "Wow, bet he is the real Easter Bunny!"







Mommy bid $75.00 on this basket for me but somebody out bid her. I went for $150.00.




These ladies are part of the Associate Advisory Council that coordinates these fund raisers. They also had chocolate bunnies, small Easter baskets, plastic eggs filled with candy and hair bows (see box on the extreme left) for sale.

DRUM ROLL PLEASE!! $2,156.45 made for the March of Dimes 2010 WOW!!


Remember last night I said Mommy came home late? Well here is why and who. You know it has to do with food, right.

CABO'S DOWNTOWN.

Cabos Downtown is a Mexican Seafood Cantina located in downtown Houston in the theater district. The food was great, Mommy had Scrimp Enbrochette with grilled scrimp on a bed of rice with a bean/corn Salsa. She said t was Yummylicous but HOT. She shared it with Jerrod since he has been known to eat Jalapeno sandwiches. "I wonder if Mack's sister Lillie eats those too, since she is a hot Mama." he he!!

What was the occasion? 3 birthdays. Jerrod & Nechol's belated birthday dinner and Toshiba's Easter Sunday birthday.

Toshiba "No she is not the real Easter Bunny."

Here are pictures of some of Mommy's co-workers and believe it or not, a half way decent picture of her too.

Miss Charlotte & Nechol

Deborah

Mommy, called Miss Sarah at work.

Darlene, the boss, and Jerrod.

Two of her co-workers weren't able to make it, Kevin & Erick. "please say a prayer for both of there families.". Kevin's Daddy had surgery yesterday and Erick's mother-in-law had a heart attack the night before.

Mommy said it was a good thing the boss bought every body's dinner and drinks cause it cost $10.00 to park.

That's all for Mommy's yesterday events. Tomorrow I'll post more about me, Mr and Mrs Bunny Fu Fu and all the little Fu Fu's, and how Mommy tricked me this morning.


Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all....Mona & the Mommy too!

Hi!!!! Guess what? I posted the Justice for Junior story on my FB page and had some responses. A few of us emailed that DA and are writing the judge, so I hope it helps. Poor little guy!
