I got a new camera! Mom gave me my early Christmas present this weekend! What an awesome weekend it was! My brother PJ cooked an awesome Thanksgiving meal. We hung out and had a really good time with our family and a few friends. Of course on Friday, mom and I went shopping with all the crazies! Then on Saturday we went scrapbook shopping with a friend of mom's. Sunday was church and then to Chuck E Cheese. Kaden has been using the potty all weekend and actually poo pooed twice. Including tonight! He's really getting the hang of it and I'm so proud of him. I'm attaching a few pics from Thursday and one of my brother and me from today!

Today on the way home from the sitter's house, we were listening to Christmas music! Trans Siberian Orchestra came on and I turned it up really loud for Kaden to enjoy. Of course he starts yelling "Ah-tar, ah-tar" which means "guitar" in Kadenese. He starts rocking out! It was awesome. I was driving and was thinking, "I'm totally going to miss this!" So, I grabbed the phone and stuck my arm in the back seat to record! I love it! He is so stinking cute. I love how he's moving his fingers like he's really playing the guitar. He also has a great ending that goes right with the music! This kid is so talented and I'm so proud of him! I can't wait to see him when he really is a rock star!

We finally took family pictures! I love them! This picture was taken two weeks ago by our friend Nick Trentham. He is a wonderful photographer! It was so hard trying to get Kaden to pose for more than a second! Kim brought candy and bribed him.

Not much has been going on around here! I've been sick for the past two weeks. It started out as a sinus infection and for some reason it has continued dispite two different antibiotics. I didn't have a voice all week. It's really hard to teach 14 year olds with no voice!

Today we went to Starkville to watch the Hogs lose! I'm pretty disappointed since I've never been to a losing game since I became a fan. Maybe we can redeem ourselves next year when I get to go the Ole Miss game. Oh well, you can't win them all!

We're so excited about this week being Thanksgiving. Mom, Jim and PJ will be in town early Thursday morning. This year PJ is actually going to cook. He usually refuses because it's his vacation. I'm super excited about him cooking this year!

That's pretty much all that's been going on around here.

As much as I have tried to keep from doing it, it's time for me to blog my political agenda! I'm sitting at school on an inservice day...there are no kids here! And I'm wondering how this day will conclude. Will my guy win or will he lose? I have no idea! But what I do know is this, at the end of the matter what day it is...God will still be God! I've really struggled with this latily! I've wondered how the race will end and if it's not my choice why God would let something like that happen. And then I have to remind myself, HE has a plan. I know that I can't see the whole picture right now...but God can and he's ok with his decision.
Incase you didn't already know, I am very conserative! Before I had kids, I know that I was very liberal. But now that I'm responsible for someone elses life, I know the importance of a Good America. I want my kids to grow up with the freedom to choose their religion (granted it better be christian!). I want them to choose to have a gun, vote for president, support causes they want to support. I don't want to see them be left behind in education because we make more money than the national poverty level. I want them to understand that nothing is free and that you have to work if you want to have money to have nice things. I want them to have jobs that they love and have the freedom to thithe their 10% to one else!
But I'm worried! I'm worried that so many people have on their blinders and can't see what's really going on! I'm worried that our country will be dupped in the end and everything we have fought against will be!
So, I ask you this...please pray for our country. This is the day the world is watching! They are just waiting for us to self destruct. It can and will happen if we take God out of our decision today!

Well, the terrible mother that I am, I have no Halloween pics to post. I used my phone to take pics because my camera is broken and it didn't work out very well. But I do have some great stories from the night.
We went on a hayride with our small group friends. This is the second year we've gone to one of our friends neighborhoods and rode on the trailers. It's so much fun to go with a big group of friends and not have to walk the entire time! The kids tire out faster when you have to walk the whole neighborhood! Anyway, Kaden was the cutest thing! He was Batman and just look so cute in his costume! He thought it was great to walk to a house and people would just give him candy! I'm sure this will always be his favorite holiday!
Brady on the other hand had a great night that didn't end so well! One house had made a Haunted House in their front yard! Brady wasn't about to go in because he said it just didn't sound right. So, he stood outside waiting for his friends. After it was all over he told me that the haunted house made him lose his fun! So, the rest of the night he just moped around with no fun! Luckily when he woke up yesterday morning he had gotten his fun back! I don't know where he comes up with these things! He cracks me up all the time!
So, here we are, the beginning of November and I'm so ready for the holidays! I can't wait!
Today I'm sitting at home sick! I have a sinus infection and I'm so mad about it! I have made it almost 12 weeks of school without getting sick and then BAM! Oh, well, I guess it could be worse! I will try to upload some pictures soon!
