I See Someone in You

Acting Like a Self-Proclaimed Dork

Yes, He is That Crazy

Next week, Haley and her family return to our area. In our household, we are individually and collectively anticipating their arrival with Christmas, Halloween and birthday excitement rolled into one. Perhaps in honor of their return, I shall take a lead from Youngest, pull up my pants real high, and greet them properly.
