2. I supposed to tag eight other people........but couldn't decide who, soooo.
IF YOU HAVEN'T POSTED ON YOUR BLOG IN THE PAST & DAYS YOU ARE TAGGEGD!!! Or you can just tag yourself if you want to share.

I so enjoyed reading your answers! And the pictures - very sweet. I love the one with Anna pulling a toy out of the toilet, the "rain" in the backyard pics, and the one with you and the munchkins. Do they really sleep on the couch like that, all at the same time?
Oh, what's a cricut machine?
By the way, I wasn't a huge fan of the polka dots or checks question. People don't really wear checks anymore, do they?

YOu're so cool. You're one of those down to earth people I was talking about.

Your husband has a quick wit to help it "rain" for the kids! that was my favorite part! I think I might "accept this mission", we'll see!

SO fun to read your answers. You put a smile on my face!! I think I'd love living in the desert a little more if there was more rain and less roaches too... but then, I suppose it really wouldn't be the desert any more ;)
