Just a brief thank you to all who have sent their thoughts and prayers to my family. This is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life but I want you all to know that I appreciate and take comfort in all the love that surrounds my Daddy and my family. It is hard to explain how it feels to be so loved but I can tell you it is a blessing. Please continue to have us in your prayers.
My Daddy was and will always be one of the best Fathers and Pappys ever! I always think of him as being my human example of God's love because if anyone on earth had that my Daddy did.
Love to all.

CP was out of school October 13th so we went to her friend Lilly's Pumpkin Painting Party. It was lots of fun and her mommy put in lots and lots of work. There were adorable snacks and tons of decorations for the pumpkins.

I just thought this was interesting and thought provoking for this time of the year:
* You cannot help the poor, by destroying the rich.
* You cannot strengthen the weak, by weakening the strong.
* You cannot bring about prosperity, by discouraging thrift.
* You cannot lift the wage earner up, by pulling the wage payer down.
* You cannot further the brotherhood of man, by inciting class hatred.
* You cannot build character and courage, by taking aw ay men's initiative and independence.
* You cannot help men permanently, by doing for them what they could and should, do for themselves.

It started out so innocent. Just a cute video of my girls playing and spraying each other in the driveway. Then it all went south so quickly. Yeah, that was our dog roaming the neighborhood. Call her Kelsey or Houdini but she somehow escaped that day. I'm still not sure how she got past us but she ended up in the driveway of the house you see in the video. So, I ran across the street to get her. Our sweet, dingy dog was just happily visiting the doggies across the street. The other dogs however were not so happy about her unannounced arrival. I had to drag her across the street. She dug in her heels so much I had to pick up her front paws and walk her across the street. Picture it. Funny huh? I'm sooooo glad no one got that on video!!

Yes, Yes I know that we fired our OC today. Don't know what to think about it yet. Time will tell, however, I received the following prayer in an email today and in light of the current state of our nation and the most important upcoming election, I feel this might take a little precedence over college football no matter how much I love my Auburn University. Please take a moment to read.
"It'd be hard to sum it up better that this. If the oncoming Presidential election
doesn't need some sore knees and quality prayers then you may be living on another planet!!!!
Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation-THIS GUY SURE HAS A GOOD VIEW OF WHAT'S HAPPENING TO THIS COUNTRY!
'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and Set us free Amen!
'Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on his radio program, 'The Rest of the Story,' and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired. With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and wholeheartedly become our desire so that we again can be called 'One nation under God.'If possible, please pass this prayer on to your friends. 'If you don't stand for something, you will fall for everything.' One Nation Under God. "

Well guess again. The other night Clara Paige was lying on the couch with me watching some long over due Disney Channel (kidding) and she was wiggling around like crazy. I asked her what her problem was and she told me, "Mommy, I have a witch."
"A What?" I ask
"You know I have a witch in my hiney!"
With a severe confused look on my face (well and somewhat amused) she continues, "You know the kind where your panties go up your Hiney."
Light bulb goes off in my head and laughter ensues!
"YOU MEAN A WEDGIE?"
CP says, "Oh Yeah, That's what it's called!"
We both laughed and giggled. Oh these are some of my favorite moments with my girls.
It is October, however, so beware all ye for the dreaded HINEY WITCH!!!!!!

I really do want to one day have the conviction and faith that this man does. To those of you that do not know him, his name is Mike Waldrop. He is one of the most influential people that I have ever been lucky enough to have in my life. He was my youth minister when I was a teenager and was my boss when I was a student at Auburn. I even babysat his beautiful children when I was at AU. He ranks right up there with my parents and my husband and kids when it comes to being special to me. He wasn't just a youth minister, he was the best youth minister! Anyway, the day of the AU/LSU game Mike was given a chance for a new happy ending in his life and me and my family couldn't be more happy for him and his new bride, Rene. Mike works at the university and Rene is a big LSU fan. Cute huh? The reception was at the Quad center and it was a tailgating reception. Ever been to one of those? Me either but I have now and it was great!!
Thanks Mike for being such a wonderful example to me always through everything. We love you and your new wifey. She seems to be a sweetheart and is blessed to have you in her life.
