Enough about those babies...let's talk about US!

I remember doing this a while back with my BB when Jacob was a little baby (oh so long ago!) and I SO enjoyed getting to know about everyone a little bit more! And since we have a few new members, I thought this was a good time to do it again! Please don't answer any questions that you feel might be an invasion of your privacy/identity.

What's your name?

How many kiddos do you have? Names and ages?

What do you like to do for fun?

Is there something you're REALLY good at?

If you work, what do you do?

Where did you get that crazy screen name?

And finally...what in the world do you look like? Pic please!
