All In the Family

Does anyone know this couple? Does anyone Really know this couple!?! because if you don't, I would like to introduce you. This couple are Very Influential in the lives of many people. They are giving, sharing, loving and compassionate. This couple are proud parents to two amazing boys (whom married two amazing women!). This couple are proud grandparents of 5 grandchildren. This couple have a tremendous vitality that rubs off on everyone who meets them!
These two lively, lovely people are my in-laws and there really aren't words that can express my gratitude towards them!
I have tried to reflect on my life and wonder what it would be like if I weren't lucky enough to have my in-laws but a moments notice away. They have dropped their lives in a heart beat to come to my rescue more times than I can remember. They come to sit, so that I don't have to wake Mr. Stinky and Mr. Mischief from their naps to pick up Ms. Bellie from school (even though the boys wake up not 5 minutes after I have left). They come when I am sick. They come when I am well. And they come for me take one of the three kiddos to the ER or the doctor. They come when you call and I am grateful.
This past week has been a difficult one for me, and they have come to the rescue always.

The devil on my shoulder says, seeing the picture, "You gotta get her for that!" - but the angel has prevailed because of the sweet words and so - we thank you for both your words and for being OUR family! Our lives wouldn't be nearly as fun and fulfilling if you all weren't in it.

I started laughing so hard,
that i felt like milk was going to
pour out of my mouth!
