Did I ever mention to you that I have 5 sister-in-laws and every one of them is "certifiable" I love each and every one of them, but they are a bunch of characters.
This was in my Christmas card from my sister in law Carol McMillan that winters every year in Texas to se her kids.
I would like to share this with you now since the holidays are upon us.
PS the spell check went bonkers on this one.
