S-Season: They are all ok for a minute but spring and fall are the very bestest!

T-Tag Friends: nah...don't wanna...ok, maybe Mary from Daughter of Eden's Eve and Tory...in your free time, of course

see my Jazz cap on my headboard? how cool was I??

U-Unknown facts about me: there aren't very many...I'm very vulnerable, I have a weather man fetish, apparently, my family and I were on TV on Dec. 3, 2001 when Cody Stark from Fox59 weather showed up at our house...I want to be a doula someday, work with pregnant/laboring women, when all my friends were loving some big haired band from the 80's, i was in love, love, love with Elvis...(see the pic above of teenaged me with Elvis pix all over my rose wallpapered walls), I was a cheerleader for one year.

Wow, I cannot believe that I am the first to comment...You must have blown everybody away with all of those cool facts and fascinating pictures. What a good A-Z...I may try it...just to give me something to blog about while on break. Guess, we'll see. Am home...yay...I even made it to church. Revelation on the drive home (since mom said it wasn't important if I made it to church), Thanksgiving and Christmas just aren't the same without meeting with the church family. Tonight was a real blessing...reading of scripture, singing of songs, and individual testimony time.

Hope you are well, toasty warm, and having some fun with that family of yours. BTW, is Moo still biting? Just wondering.

Love ya, cuz! t

Aw, shucks...thanks for obliging and for the "shout outs"! I thought the same on the x-ray vs. ultrasound one...LAME-O!! I like your idea, better. I'm not very familiar w/ X-men, though..wait until my boys are older, I guess.
Very Happy Anniversary! 15 years- that's an accomplishment! And look at all that you've done together in those 15 years!
BTW...I think you'd be an AMAZING midwife/doula!
