Where on Earth did God go?!

Well I am not church goer - I do pray every night, I do believe and I do know right from wrong. However I do not understand the NEED to remove GOD or any other Higher being from our everyday lives ... I got a e-mail today about Obama and his refusal to not only put his hand over his heart during the Pledge but his refusal to say it. I do not know Politics - I have a hard time following them, but I have been trying to pay attention to all of it and follow it. I think before now I was just like "whatever" but over the last 4 years I realized that if I "what evered" it then I could not complain about it - so I started trying to pay attention ...

I had heard about this but a picture is definitely worth 1000 words! God save us!!!

Senator Barack Obama, Governor Bill Richardson, Senator Hillary Clinton and Ruth Harkin stand during the national anthem. Barack Hussein Obama's photo (that's his real name)......the article said he REFUSED TO NOT ONLY PUT HIS HAND ON HIS HEART DURING THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, BUT REFUSED TO SAY THE in the hell can a man like this expect to be our next Commander-in-Chief????
So tell me what am I missing - why should we not take into consideration that the US has gone to SHIT is it because we are removing God or is it because we are just slack and "times are changing?"
Didn't mean to get all political or Religious on ya ...

The Lakes Halloween Parade

Well I have been telling you for weeks that I would put up Tatum's Halloween Costume pictures and I am slack ... I wanted to take her to a "professional" so they would be really really cute, but time snuck up on me and I still haven't taken her ... so they aren't great but they are here! We had the big Annual Halloween Parade today ...I just love our neighborhood ... it was so much fun and I was very surprised with the turn out! There were all kinds of people there and we even had 2 fire trucks! A police officer lead the parade down our main road from the front of the neighborhood to the club house. One firetruck was behind him and then all of the walkers and bike riders, then all the golf carts and then the second fire truck. It was awesome ... next year we are going to go all out and decorate the golf cart too!

Tatum AKA ... The Little Mermaid
She was so cute, every time she moved her little "scales" sparkled!

Our Competition ...
next year we will go all out too!

2 posts ... one day ... holly beegeezus

Well I hate to report this, but the Milk Train is slowing running out of gas. Before my weekend away it started happening, the right side was still chugging strong and the left ... well it was starting to run on fumes. Once on my long weekend I tried and tried to stay on top of it and keep hydrated and take them to the pump as often as I should have. For the most part I was on schedule except for the 8pm stop and it was delayed both nights until well after 1am. All of the pumps were a waste, they had to be dumped down the drain. Now that I am home, the little one is having a very hard time getting back on that train. She seems okay after a few minutes on the right, but the left is a VERY HURTFUL "Tug and Go." I am not sure if she is used to the artificial nozzle now or if she just likes being able to look around while filling up. What ever it is, we made it 4 months ... yep she will me 4 months young on Thursday we go in for our 4 month old tune up on Friday - shots and all ... how scary! I guess then we will ask for advise on how to make the dreaded switch! Should you have ANY advise PLEASE comment!


PS - Mephis Steve ... Yes I am talking about the Ta~Tas and the baby not wanting them anymore ... can you imagine that?!

Halloween ...

Well the costume went in the washer today for pictures on Friday ... so don't you worry boys and girls, next week you will see what the princess will be for her 1st Halloween! She will be queen of this house, queen of the Sea and I am sure she will give you all a great laugh!
Hang in there it is coming soon!
For now ... here is a picture of her Name Frame from Robin, ps happy birthday to your Matt!
I wanted to hang the sign over her crib, but it was a no go - the crib sits Catty Corner in her room, I tried and tried to rearrange - but it was not good, so the sign is over her changing station! I LOVE IT!

The weekend was WONDERFUL~ Melanie is my Best Friend and let me tell you ... leaving the baby was the hardest thing I have EVER done, but she was worth it! She was a champ - we dressed her up and made her do a little scavenger hunt thing that she had a blast playing! When I dropped the baby off on Friday I cried for about 20 min of the 4 hour drive. I was fine that night and then I only cried a little bit on Saturday night when I called home to check on her ... so for the most part I did fine! I don't have any pictures to post - like an idiot I forgot the camera ... I will have pictures as soon as Anna gets them to me, she took a lot!
Melanie's Scavenger hunt included the following fun things:
*Kiss a bald mans head ... don't forget the lipstick
*Get 3 men's business cards ~one she got was a bail bonds men ... haha
*Find someone to show you a picture of his girlfriend/wife ~ A man actually showed her pictures of his family ... he was very very nice and fun~ his friend was the one that gave the bail bond card!
*Get a tag from a man's boxers or underwear ~this one was the best
*Get 3 men to sign your body where clothes don't hide
*Find someone to let you Tattoo (with marker) oh his body "I love Melanie"
*Pretend to walk down the isle with a stranger
*Find a man named William and ask him to marry you ... get down on 1 knee
*Find a condom
*Leave a condom for a tip when you order a beer
*Get your picture taken with a monkey - she collect monkeys
*Get a phone number of a stranger
*Collect a match book from the bar

I can't remember all of them ... but when we get the pictures I will remember more, we made her take a picture with each and every person and card. Anywho the weekend was a blast - Friday night I prayed to the Porcelain God, thanks to those of you who held hair and washed my face, Saturday night I lost my voice, drank again and now feel like ASS, but hey it was worth it!

So Friday I will be leaving I will be going to Savanna to Party with all the girls! We are leaving Friday and I will return home on Sunday! I am excited and nervous. I know she will be fine, but I am so narcs about a few things:
1- will she miss me?
