No scary in-law stories here!

I have to admit. With all the scary in-law stories I've heard, I feel like I won some lottery contest of the in-law-world. So much so, that I feel a bit guilty and give tons of empathy to those who, well, have the "Everybody Loves Raymond" in-laws.

Mark & Rosemary
We've had the opportunity to live quite close to them for most of our married lives. And by close, I mean, 15 minutes away, after church lunches kind of close. She's the absolute best hostess in the world, and he's - well - he's Mark Ferrell. The twinkle in his eye says enough.
Oh there are plenty of days where Boog & I look at our life and think, "Well? Haven't we been here long enough?" I mean, Boog grew up in this town. He knows it like the back of his hand. But then, we think of our family, and decide that being close is something we should appreciate while we have it. Who knows? We could be uprooted to the mountains of Colorado or the plains of the mid-west tomorrow, if that's where God calls Boog. So right now I just enjoy the everyday family trials and laughs...hoping for more of the latter. And I thank his parents for teaching Boog how to be a wonderful husband & dad.

Me & Boog
