ASortor is the winner!
And I will lead off on that note with a little posting regarding the winner:

ASortor is my sister-in-law that lives in Arizona. I didn't know she kept up with my blog =). Not because we don't get along or anything, but mostly because she's a very busy girl.
I did not ask permission before writing about her, so I'm going to keep this pretty brief. Since she's family, she kind of falls under the category of "if your related to me, you may end up on the blog without my asking first".
When I first met her, my husband (who was not my husband at the time) warned me that we would either become best friends or hate each other. Our personalities were fairly close to being identical.
I was so darn nervous. I really wanted to make a good impression on her, but I'm kind of shy. I can't remember the exact moment we met, but I do know we hit it off right away. I knew that I met someone I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. We had so much in common (except for her love of seafood-that might be a deal breaker for me.) that we never run out of things to talk about.
We are kindred spirits. When we are together, it's as if I've known her forever. No matter how long it's been since we've seen each other, I feel comfortable with her. She's my sister that just happens to not be related by blood and lives miles away from me.
She asked for some videos of my kids as her special surprise. Not sure why anyone would ever want to see my kids act nuts, but I took a few this morning, just for her.

He's impossible to talk to. All he wants is the bus.
Morgan was having fun with us this time.
This one was taken a few weeks ago.
The love to dance.
And they love to make me laugh.
