Carnival of Family Life 46th Edition

I have the distinct honor of playing the role of guest host of this weeks Carnival of Family Life, the 46th edition. I host my own carnival, Carnival of The Storytellers. I usually have 8-12 submissions every other week. The number of regular submissions for this carnival is amazing to me. I bit off a bit more than I could chew on this one :)

My philosophy has always been to bite off more than you can chew and just keep chewing.

mama duck-

I am very sorry. I fear one or two were lost in the translation as I tried to bring together InstaCarnival data plus independent E-mail entries. I ran out of time and think I might have accidentally deleted one or two. Looks like you were one of them. VERY SORRY!
