Hi Julie,
First of all I love your header, it is really eye catching so if you made that kudos to you or if you had it done the person that did it did a fantastic job. Munchie, Crunchy, and Chewie (ROFL, love it) are adorable. Wow, congratulations on 21 years married, my parents just celebrated their 47th and I am coming up on my 13th and I couldn't be happier. I am surprised to see you waited 10 years before having children, I wish I would have waited long as well. I wish I would have taken the time to get to know my husband better just us two before being a 'family unit' and losing our titles to Mom and Dad.

Hope you have a great upcoming weekend and I hope the Bloggy Carnival has been positive for you, I know I am having fun.
