Have you ever?

I always seem to get busy and then just don't take the time to update.... again... I'm sorry! Things have been going really good for the most part. We've been busy getting ready for Christmas and enjoying the decorating and singing and cooking! Miss Willie has made me promise to post soon about my former ugly feelings toward all things "Christmas" and how the Lord has worked in my heart to make it a wonderful season for our family so I will try to get that posted soon. Today I had 12 children all day and am too tired to go into it so I am just going to post my "have you ever" that Miss Willie asked me to put up with a promise to post again soon.
