I asked my family for a quick pic for the blog and this is what I got! This pretty much sums up our life.....wild 'n crazy, chaotic, loud, funny, and full of LOVE. I love my family and am thankful for another year filled with many blessings. This picture was taken about an hour ago. Margo's now asleep and I'm gonna let the big girls stay up to ring in the new year with me. David's going to bed because he's working tomorrow. This is the first New Year's Eve night that I haven't worked in several years. Here's wishing everyone a Happy 2011.
