The american song

January 25, 2009 at 8:37 pm (Evan) (, )

Someone’s giving Stevie Ray Vaughn a run for his money & the “who” might surprise you!  It’s none other than the American Idol herself Carrie Underwood!  Evan will actually request her music in the car & specifically one song – I don’t even know the name of it.  In our household it’s call “The American Song”.  What’s even more amazing (to me anyways because I can’t ever tell who’s singing a song) is that he’ll hear almost any of her songs & he knows it’s her!  So the artist doesn’t exactly make Dad proud, but that hear sure does!!!

Anyhow, I realize I may be the only one that thinks this is cute, but either way here’s the little guy in action singing to “The American Song”:

But I’m most proud that he can tell you who bought him which one – from the smallest to the biggest! He even remembers which one Megan gave him & she didn’t even really give it to him! I love that!!

Just some random cute stuff

January 24, 2009 at 10:58 pm (Megan, pictures) ()

Poor Megan is going to have the youngest child syndrome.  Her brother will have books & books worth of printed pictures & she’ll be lucky to have a small “brag-book” size one filled by the time she’s one!!  I don’t take near the amount of pictures I did with Evan & I definitely don’t print any of them … oh, just the thought of that makes me want to back-up my back-up to my back-up!!  So here’s a couple random pics of our our growing little girl!

Our Little Cowgirl:

In complete love with her big brother (it looks like he’s getting ready to slap her, but it’s just a love pat!!):

And loving her little leg warmers (from Aunt Staci, of course!)

Change has come

January 23, 2009 at 10:10 pm (Politics, President Obama) ()

So did you see the latest Executive Order that President Obama signed into order today? The answer is no – because he did it without media coverage, late on a Friday afternoon. I’m going to take a shot in the dark & say that was intentional. Why? Because everything formal that a President does is intentional. Nothing is un-intentional.

So if my math is correct (I could be off, but I am counting) it took just 4 Executive Orders for the new Pres to reverse the Abortion Fund Policy. Now, our US taxpayer money (the money that we’re so short on) is going to international family planning groups that either offer abortions or provide information, counseling or referrals about abortion as a family planning method.

Well – that just makes me sick!

Multi-tasking

January 22, 2009 at 10:59 am (Uncategorized) ()

I like to think I’m pretty good at it, but I’ve come across one thing that I just can’t see to multi-task. I want to swish my mouthwash while putting on my moisturizer. The results never end up good. Is it just me??

History in the making

January 19, 2009 at 8:46 pm (Politics) ()

I’m by no means a history buff.  In fact I specifiically recall hating all history classes – middle, high & college.  However I’m all about history in the making.  It’s hard to pull me away from a television set when something of great importance is being covered.  To actually live IN history is such a cool thing to me. 

I love learning about historical things by events that are going on in the present.  I never knew or even thought of how or when the incoming President moves into the White House – but I just learned that all of it happens after a 10am ceremonial tea at the White House.  As soon as the incoming & outgoing Presidents leave the tea, the Staff kicks it into high gear!  They’ll move the outgoing President out & the incoming in.  An army plane will take all the outgoing President’s belongings to his new residence.  Did you know that the incoming President pays for his things to be moved?  That’s so funny to me!! Although most funds are taken from their campaign or something like that – not always personal, but still.

Did you know that while everyone “in Washington” will be at tomorrow’s Innaguration, one lone designate will be off in some undisclosed location … just in case!  I never thought of that before.  But I’m glad someone else has.  I mean honestly, every politician that has ever was or ever will be will be in DC tomorrow & EVERYONE knows that (the good, the bad & the ugly).  So just in case something were to happen this lone designate will be the President.  This year, Bush selected the Secretary of Defense & Obama agreed so oh Mr. Gates will be watching on TV … just like me!

From thanksgiving to new years & more

January 17, 2009 at 11:24 am (Uncategorized)

I can’t believe it’s already January 17th!!  My last post was about Thanksgiving – it’s a good thing no one was holding their breath waiting for an updated post!  We’ve had Christmas, New Years, my brothers’ birthday and Evan’s tubes since I’ve been on here last.  So to say I’ve done a miserable job at posting is an understatement!  I’ve even been pretty lousy at reading blogs these day too!  But BOTH little ones are spending the night out this Sunday since Monday is no school (oh how I love have family work in the school system) … so my goal is to get caught up on ALOT of things … this being one.

I have been keeping up with one blogger – Kelly.  I found her through my sister the beginning of last year.  She tried 5 years to conceive her first child and after years of disappointment she became pregnant this past year.  I followed along with her blog (along with COUNTless others) and was so excited for her yesterday when she went into the hospital to be induced with her baby girl – Harper.  Unfortunately Harper is in very critical condition & needs LOTS of prayers.  Her mom & entire family is trusting in God’s plan.  Please pray for her …  she has lots of monogrammed dresses to come home & wear!!
