Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

Last year I did a survey (click here to read it)  with my family and came across it recently. I thought it would be fun to see how their responses have changed and even to do this every year, perhaps around Mother's Day.  oops a little late this year!  It is funny how some of the answers have changed, although I think that some of the answers would change depending on what day or even what time of day I asked them.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy a glimpse into my family's thoughts about me!

Here are Sam's responses:
