A Rock Stars Halloween!

Hey Family,
Although we choose to celebrate a "Harvest" instead of Halloween, the kiddies still like to dress up! You probably all remember 2 1/2 year old Wesley who told us who the next president was going to be, well here he is as "Rock Star!" This is hilarious!

Dad's Stump Speech!

Just sharing for all of the folks out there, you can’t stretch your gas tank.
Yesterday after a wonderful church service, I figured I would sneak out before the end to beat the rush. I ran to my car and started it up. Sputter, sputter , dead…………. Okay, I’m wracking my brain, wondering what happened even as the glaring check gage light is blinking, It can’t be that, I thought. My father is going to kill me, his childrens stump speech consists of #1. Stop going to the ATM 10 times a day keep some cash with you, #2. The ever popular “Bump and Run”, if someone hits your car at night and you’re suspicious keep going until you get to a safe spot and………….#3. Don’t let the tank get down to E! Great, I have violated life rule #3! I have to admit that the check gage light was on the night before, but in these hard economic times I’ve learned to judge exactly how long I can survive on E before pulling into the station. Unfortunately for me as I was told by the AAA guy, when you have a Ford and park on an incline it won’t start on low gas! That wasn’t in my manual! I was also informed by my(or should I say Tricia’s) AAA guy that If I had started the car and coasted down the hill the engine would have caught and I would have made it to a gas station. IS HE KIDDING! Now on top of everything I’m going to coast down a hill and pray that it starts, um………….no thanks. Well he gave me some gas and I drove sheepishly to the gas station, but when I got there I realized I had no cash, violating dad’s stump speech #1, so I decided to use my ATM card at the pump, which violated stump speech #4, don’t use your card at the pump anyone can get your number!. So folks if you ever see me rolling through an intersection, trying to coast to a gas station just pray for me! To add insult to injury now Donna and Lance are getting me my own AAA card for Christmas, yuck, I wanted some new boots!

Is it wrong to think................

Hi folks, just had a question! You know me and politics, I've been a political junkie. I've been informed, reading and watching everything. I have spent the last 15 months making sure people took me seriously as a political pundant. This is why after all that I've been saying, I want to know if it's wrong to think our possible new president Barack Obama is.............HOT! Okay, okay I know it's not politically correct to think that your president is a hottie but I can't help it! It's not just his looks, its the way he looks at his wife, his swagger and confidence, his depth of knowledge all rolled up into a nice neat package. I'm sorry if this offends some and I hope that I will be allowed to keep my political card, but I just had to say it. hmmmmm.............I wonder if he has a single brother! hahahah!

When did I turn into my mother?

Growing up as little kids our mothers were always there for us, trying to make sure we were doing the things we were supposed to do. "Be polite, Be quiet, smile, wear your earrings (for those of us without a lot of hair :) make sure your clothes are neat etc. the list goes on and on..........................I always thought when I grow up I'm gonna do what I want to do and mommy can't tell me otherwise! (Because we thought we knew more than they did of course) Well for many a year after being out on my own and doing what I wanted to do, I had kids. I have now officially turned into my mother. "Clean your room, it’s a pigsty (no lipstick involved)", You eat all of those lima beans on your plate, there are children starving all over the world" (it was and still is a fact). What’s wrong with your sneakers from last year, they don't have any holes in them!". " No you can't stay up late because you never want to get up in the morning.", and my old time favorite, "BECAUSE I SAID SO!!!!!!!”. I didn't know if anything I was saying was actually working until William told his Auntie Dawn that mommy was mean, "she won't let me do anything." now that made me smile. My Mommy is so proud of me!!!!
