Those are funny and awful.(sp?) They are great!! Sorry that I didn't call you this weekend. I had a few family members to catch up with (his mom and my mom) and David was getting antsy by the time that I got through talking to them. He has a low tolerance for the phone when we are together. I read your blog everyday. I just told mom this weekend about my blog. I bet she would read yours. If you have the time you should email her.
