Sick of being sick....

... my whole family being sick that is.  I don't know what the deal is, we have always been so good about avoiding sickness, but this winter we can't get a break!!!!  I would love to post more pics of my cute kids doing something fun but there hasn't been much time for that lately.  The only thing different I can think of is that Gordon is working in a clinic where they see lots of people all day, some sick, but he can't very well avoid his job.  Meanwhile it is so sad to see our little guys suffering :(  and talk about expensive to get them better, makes me really like the idea of universal medicine.  We have public schools, why not public healthcare; maybe we should move to France (Gordon would do well and we wouldn't go into debt to get our kids better!)  So anyway, that's what we have been up to.  We're going to San Antonio for Thanksgiving next week, can't wait, should get lots of fun pics then!

Yes We Can => Yes We DID!!!!!

I am kind of at a loss for words right now, but I did not want to let this moment pass without expressing in some way how I feel right now witnessing history.  I was filled with faith and awe (and I'll admit a few tears) as I watched the announcement that Barack Obama was elected President, faith in democracy and the power of the people.  Popular vote worked, first of all, that's a big deal.  Second of all, some of you may know that I have been very inspired by Obama and I am really excited now for our future that has been looking so grim.  I believe that Obama's policies will pull our country back up on it's feet, but that is as controversial as I want to get here.
I have received email after email full of 'inaccuracies' in regard to Obama, and my hope now is that those folks can take a look at the facts and open their minds and hearts and see the change for good that is in store for America. God Bless America!

Lyndon Dragon

~I wish I knew what he was thinking in this picture~
Lyndon has loved dragons all year so it was perfect that we borrowed his Uncle JT's dragon costume... he really thought it was THE REAL THING!

But what was Lyndon's most favorite part of Halloween?.... THE CANDY!

Madelyn didn't see a lot of action this halloween. I did put her little pumpkin outfit on her but she slept cuddled with mommy in her sling while we took Lyndon trick-or-treating.
