I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures. As I'm sure you know, you have to take like a BILLION just to get a few good ones. (At least that's the way it works around here) ;-)

Now, I really enjoyed your post on Bible facts. That's some pretty interesting stuff!

Well, I guess I'm gonna go.. I'm going to put the boys to bed soon. (We've been out with Link and have missed a LOT of sleep - HEHEHE)

See you SOON!
