One Virginia couple is having the best month ever.

Calvin and Zatera Spencer of Portsmouth won the lottery three times in two weeks, taking home more than $2 million.

The Spencers won their first $1 million in the March 12 Powerball drawing. Then, on March 26, Calvin picked up 10 Pick 4 tickets with the combination 6-6-6-6. The popular combination resulted in a $6 million payout, and with his 10 tickets, Calvin took home $50,000.

The next day, Calvin dropped his wife off at an appointment and stopped by a 7-Eleven store in Norfolk, where he bought a lottery scratcher.

“Baby, we did it again!” he told his wife after winning that $1 million prize.

The Spencers chose to take home the cash option of $681,000 before taxes.

And Calvin says they're "not finished yet."
