|You Are LOL|
You're usually the first one to find a new funny video, picture, or website.
You're always up for wasting time online, even if (especially if) you're at work.
You also tend to spend a lot of time chatting, especially with people who make you laugh out loud.

We normally don't give the kids to much candy, but for Easter you have to have candy. So the kids were running around all wired. I could not wait to get to mom and dads just so they could go run around and look for Easter eggs.
Here are some radem pictures I took at mom and dads.

You Are Considerate and Mature
You approach the holidays with responsibility and cooperation.
You'll do your part to make sure that everyone else has a happy holiday.
You aren't particularly picky or high maintenance during the holidays.
You're happy to be in the company of people you love, and you're willing to "go with the flow."
Of all the types, you are the most likely to give someone exactly what they want.
You're also the most likely to wrap all your presents well - to prevent peeking!

If your purse no longer bulges
If it's drama that you sigh for,
If it's comradeship you sight for,
If you ever think of dying

It has been really hard seeing my family go through so much and wondering if they are doing the right thing for her. I am thankful that she knows who I am, because there is some in the family she doesn't know. We think she knows me because I go see her as much as I can.
