Top 100

In August 2007, I started a blog about our family... the ups, the downs, and let's face it... the poop. Now, close to one year later I am writing my 100th post, and our lives have changed quite a bit. Addison is one year older... Samantha has joined our family... Both Jay and I no longer work in Mossville... Our extended family has grown with Adam getting married to Molly, Lee marrying Roxy, and Eric and Lisa's daughter Carissa joining the mix... But the one thing that hasn't changed is the fun we have as a family!

For my 100th post, I have thought long and hard about what to write. I didn't think pictures of Sam looking like a rap star would be fitting (those are to come some other day!) so I decided to poll the family and list our Top 100 things we love and are grateful for. Thanks for those of you who read our blog and especially to those who give us material to write about!
