Funny that you don't like horror movies, but you love haunting shows.

Only MY daughter would photograph poop (something I would do or have been blamed for doing) and post it on her blog. What happened to sewer gas?

There are a lot of things I would like to do over, but there are two things I would never change and they are Shawna and Kasey. Love Dad
