I love your blog! When you describe situations, I can just see the look on your face and the sound of your voice! I can almost hear the kids all talking at the same time. I really missed seeing you guys in September for my annual visit from PA. I miss hugs from Cale & Shane and Maria's beautiful blue eyes. She & I didn't get to go shopping this year.
