Always Crazy, Always Fun, Always Love

Ray Romano once compared life with twins to living in a frat house. As he put it, "no one sleeps, there is a lot of noise and a lot of throwing up." I find this very true with 4 young children, including twins. However, though things are always crazy, we always try to have fun and, most certainly, always love each other.

What's funny is that I hadn't even seen this when I did my birthday post. I thought it was totally original...and really I was behind the times. You added pictures which was WAY better. Cute post...I obviously liked the idea.
