My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

I canNOT believe that. I guessed. I knew the word "genuflect", as in "kneeling briefly at odd times during the liturgy," so I thought I was being funny. :0 Man.
Thanks again, Mom, for the fun. This one had me going until this morning and I didn't know if I'd make it under the wire.
