#12 was my favorite!! It just made me laugh! I'm a little disappointed in #24. I mean I understand where you're coming from but surely you didn't mean you're only a Hog fan when they are doing well! :) I admit I've become a little fair-weather in some sports but I'm hoping to get some new life back in me soon!At least the bball hogs won last night!

Hope you have a great day! We're supposed to get 3 to 5 inches of snow! Yikes! Makes for an interesting drive home from work! Pray!

Charity said...

I am right there with you on the wintry white legs! Whew! I can't stand it!!

I so need to get you my "smothered enchiladas" recipe! It is SUPER EASY and quick...would feed all your growing guys in your house! I actually made them last night!
