Well, hello! We've just returned from a fabulous SURPRISE trip to New Orleans! This is our Spring Break, so we told the girls we were going to Houston to visit GG, and when we got there, we just kept on driving. They finally noticed when we crossed the border into Louisiana and were very excited! We had a wonderful time, and a full report with pictures will follow soon!

BUT for now, big news! We have a new member of the Peachy Keens who is fundraising for the St. Baldrick's Foundation. Meet Austin!

Austin is the son of our dear friends and neighbors, Weldon and Martinique, and on his 10th birthday, he decided to do something to help kids fighting cancer. The whole family has been a big part of Georgia's journey from Day One, and Weldon even braved the shave in her honor in 2011. Now it's Austin's turn under the clippers! He'll be shaving his head at the Dell Children's event on March 29th, and we'd love for you to honor him and his big, sweet heart with a donation to childhood cancer research. We are so grateful for the family's constant support and their dedication to raising awareness and research funds right along with us. Every time we put out a call for ANYthing, they answer, and we couldn't have made the impact we have without their help. So a BIG thank you to Austin and the whole Phillips clan!

In other team news, Team SuperMax is celebrating some very big things - Max's successful shunt surgery and the sale of the Suit of the Loom! Final bid was $40,000! And the winner was ... the inventor of Rainbow Loom! He plans to take the suit to Loom events around the country to continue telling Max's story and raising awareness of childhood cancer - a huge win/win for everyone. In the final days of the auction, even eBay got on the bandwagon and offered to donate $1 to MaxLove Project for every online share of Max's story, up to $10,000. And Max and his dad did a great Skype interview with Headline News, which you can see here. Next up is a National Day of Looming in September, so stay tuned for details and keep on looming!

Georgia had her bone density scan and ankle x-ray this morning, and we'll have those results soon. Funny thing - her ankle didn't bother her once while we were walking all over New Orleans. Must have been the beignets! Have a great weekend, y'all!
