And the Winner is

Terri, a long time reader at Nanaland, won the April Giveaway!! Terri, be looking for your package in the mail later this week!!

We had a busy weekend that started on Friday when we went to Hoover to meet up with my sis in law, Barbara and nephew, Douglas. Barb and Doug were on a spring break trip that covered several states and enabled them to see lots of family.

Elliott found a nice place to sit!!

Great Aunt Barbara got to see Audrey on Saturday in Atlanta.

We also got to visit with sweet Ruby who is back with the Grimms as the next part of her training. And all you prayer warriors, we need prayer. Katy and Ben noticed that Baylor started rubbing his eyes after being around Ruby. So off to the allergist he goes this week. Pray he is not allergic to Ruby.  Ruby has already proved she is a good service dog as she alerted Katy on Sunday that Baylor had gotten out of the house. He had pushed out a screen and crawled through a small space and got into the yard. Ruby could not get through the space but she barked and got Katy! Good Dog!

Elliott was glad to be back with his family.

Margaret was happy that her Daddy had put together the new swing set!

Douglas, Ben and Margaret. Doug was so nice to play outside with Margaret and she was smitten with him!

Uncle Marvin is still the tallest Grimm.

Elliott crashed after lunch!!

It is always good to spend time with family. It was a fun day for us all.

Sweet photos of your dear family. I'm so thankful that Ruby was there Sunday. I'll be praying for Baylor.

Congratulations to Terri!

Arlene, I will send up a prayer for Baylor. I don't know how the service dog thing works - would you be able to trade this dog in for a more non-allergenic breed?

Thank you for sharing all the pictures. :-)

Elliott is OUT!! So darn cute! Ruby is already working. Sure hope Baylor isn't allergic! He remains on my prayer list! If I'm the Terri who won the drawing, I'm SO excited!! Wow!!

Thank you Mildred!! Gina, they have already spent a good deal of money for Ruby's training so if Baylor is allergic, they will take the Go Fund Me money that is left and invest in a GPS monitor which is very costly. Grandpa and I will help out with the cost. So I am praying Baylor is allergic to something that is blooming and not Ruby!! She is such a sweet dog and seems like part of the family already.

Sometimes this time of year, dogs gather a lot of pollen on their coats. I've read you should wipe them down with a baby wipe every time they come inside. Who knows? It may work! Definitely prayers for this.
Hope you have a wonderful week.

Arlene Grimm said...

Congrats to Terri! I love it when someone I know wins. I am not a colorer - can you believe it? It seems everyone is doing that right now. This was a nice giveaway!
Praying that Baylor has no allergies!
