So in the past few days I have been thinking about out Country alot. Now for those of you that know me, that is not a surprise. I may not agree with all of our new Presidents ideas or beliefs, but is IS now our President, no, MY president. It is now up to me to stand up and support him as he begins to lead this new country. It is up to me to lend him spiritual strength as I offer prayers in his behalf. It is up to me, to show the world what America is really made up of. One nation indivisible! I hope that no matter what our individual thoughts are we will stand together to bolster our commander in chief as he leads this great country. It's like what we read in the scriptures..."no unhallowed hand" shall stop this work. I truly believe that if we stnad together we will never fall. Anyway. enough of my political rampage, just wanted to share.

Also, my mom sent me the link to this site called Mission 1 Accomplished. It's a website designed for people to give thanks to our former president, George W. Bush. There were some really greeat thoughts shared. One that really touched my heart was this:

"President Bush, thank you for putting our military in high regard and respecting their sacrifices. Only two people have ever died for, Jesus Christ for my eternal salvation, and two, the American solidier for my earthbound freedom. You understood that and proudly gave them the respect that they deserve and have earned."

This really touched me because I have a brother who has served two tours overseas protecting our freedoms. Now if you ask him if it was a big deal he'll always tell you no, that he was doing his job. I have been blessed with three brothers that either have or are currently serving our country in the United States Marines, each of them are fiercely patriotic, and would truly die for our country if asked. I am grateful for men like them who stand up for not only our freedoms but also for the freedoms of those yet to experience that joy. So to my brothers, those that serve in the military, and to our former commander in chief I too sy THANKS!

What has been occupying my time

So, if having two kids under 18 months doesn't keep me busy enough, I decided to add more stress to my life. I decided to total my car. No the kids were not with me. Two weeks ago on Tuesday, the 6th, my mom had I had taken a girls afternoon/night out. As we were heading home we were hit by another driver as we crossed the intersection.

All things considering the injuries were minor, meaning they could have been MUCH worse. I broke my left pinky toe, sprained my left ankle, and got a killer bruise on my right calf just below my knee. My mom had tons of bruises, cut her hand pretty good, and broke her right wrist...luckily for her she is left handed.

So since then I have not only been trying to find a car for under $8,000, but one that would be big enough to suit our needs. The insurance actually called with "good" news for us saying that they would give us $4000 for the car. We were surprised. The only condition is that they needed the title. Enter in problem Number One.....we can't find the silly title of course. Problem Two....come to find out, the car is titled in the state of CA under my maiden name. Problem will take 30 days to get the duplicate title. SO yeah I have been having a ton of fun. The big problem with getting the title so slowly is that my car is in the tow yard, and pretty soon here I will be responsible for the charges being incurred. And until my insurance gets the title, they can't release the check for us to get a new car. YEAH!!!! Just what I needed. Okay there I have vented....I feel a little better, at least for the next minute or so. See ya later.

Regis and Kelly Beautiful Baby Search

Okay so my dad sent me a link the other day to this contest, so I figured I would enter the kiddos. I have watched the show and I hope that the kids gets featured on the show.....that would be so fun. Anyway, I do need to decide which picture to use. I snapped two yesterday morning but I don't know if they are cute enough. What do you think?

Don't worry I didn't forget Seth, I'm still working on getting cute ones of him. I'll post them as soon as I take them...maybe today.
