RIO or HOP? RIO!!!

On Saturday afternoon Leyna and I decided to take the girls to the movies.  We thought since Easter was the next day that they'd want to see HOP...nope, they both said RIO!!  Logan is a veteran moviegoer at the ripe old age of 6, but this was Ciara's first foray into the movie theater.  I wasn't sure how she was going to behave, you know, sitting still, not asking 50 million questions that everyone else in the theater can hear, telling me how bored she is, the old I gotta go to the potty routine to break up the monotony (she especially likes to use that one during church, lol), but she did great!  The movie had her attention from the very beginning and between watching in awe at the mounds of popcorn those two devoured and her interactive comments throughout the movie, we all were quite entertained for 1 1/2 hrs.  These pics are before, during and after the movie!



Just wanted you all to know that I had to create this new blog because for some reason Blogger decided that they weren't going to merge your old blog with their new formats (or some such silliness), it is!  I hope that by creating this new blog and taking the time that it takes to do so, it will provide the kick in the pants I need to keep it pretty updated...hmmmmm, we'll see!  I did however figure out how to import all of my previous posts from the old blog into this one.  I'm going to do a post later on tonight kinda to update everyone on what's been happening since Oct.  Well, maybe the abridged version but with lots of stay tuned!!!



1. America Is Good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson


Ciara's preschool had their Halloween Parade today around the school grounds. Ciara is a scarecrow this year, not her choice but mine, lol. She isn't getting this whole dressing up and asking for candy thing. She likes it but she doesn't get it, lol. And since she didn't ask to dress up in anything in particular, she became the scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. She, Logan, and cousins Gavin and McKenna will be trick or treating together. Logan is gonna be Dorothy, Gavin the Tinman and baby McKenna the Lion, hence Ciara as the scarecrow. That happens Saturday. But for now here are the pictures from the parade. She was so cute leading the way. It was very cold out and I fear it's gonna be another cold one on Saturday night. The kids don't mind, but I for one am not looking forward to it!! LOL

I really didn't have Ciara pose for this picture exactly like a scarecrow, lol. When I said "Cheese!" she just threw her arms out wide!Leading the parade!Look how little Ciara is compared to all the rest of the kids in her class!After such a beautiful day yesterday, today it was really cold and windy and this parade stuff is starting to wear on Ciara. Luckily she had clothes on underneath her costume or she never would've made it out there!Each child got on this platform and stated what they were supposed to be. They were all so cute!
