We finished our kit preparation for MIU Houston yesterday. Whoopeeee! This doesn't look to bad, does it? Now consider these are only 1 of ours and a small glimpse at that.

Here is the full picture (just one of us space large enough for both) and I even cleaned up the floor before I took the photo....couldn't let anyone see that mess it was awful. Even the dog was trying to figure out how to reach his bed. Hope you can join us in Houston for some fun and laughs. Some how people always hear us laughing aisles away...just follow the happy sound.
