Dry Air











The air is so dry this winter and it is making everything have static cling.

Christmas

See the time 4:35 that is after we had been up for awhile. All the kids were sick and Hannah work up with a ear ache at 3:30 and we couldn't make her happy and the other kids woke up so we just said lets go see if Santa came to cheer them all up. It worked.




Brayden loved his Iron man he got from Santa.


He also got this space shuttle set and it was a big hit as well.




All the kids got blankets and we all got our team (NFL) pillows.












Owen got the green scooter he asked for.







We all got slippers as well.








Hannah got the big brown bear she asked for.




Overall I think it was a very fun Christmas. We all got what we wanted and had a good time playing together.

Cute Kids

Kids are so cute! The other day I was driving with Owen when the following conversation occured.

Owen "mom why are their bad people?"

Mom "Heavenly father gave us our free agency and some people make bad choices, Satan was cast out of heaven and wants to make us miserable to so he temps us to be bad so we wont be able to return to live in Heaven"

Owen "How was he cast out?" so I tell him about the war in Heaven and why he was cast out.

Then owen said "I thought he was cast out, like with a fishing pole." I thought it was very funny.

Hannah got a cd player for her birthday and it comes with a microphone that she can sing along with the music. Her dad told her that you can hear it in your ears, the following is what we hear everytime she listens to it.

The Last Thing we need is Bigger Government

I found this on one of my friends blogs. I am just posting part of his post but if you would like to read the full post go to www.boystokings.blogspot.com

Free Markets or Regulation
Am I naive, ignorant, or stupid?
Or is it possible that I am right and the masses are stampeding like buffalo toward an unseen cliff where they will meet their financial doom?

Let me be clear - I think you are nuts if you believe that we are seeing a demonstration of the failures of the free market. What free market? We haven't had a free market since before the American Civil War. Some special interest or lobby has been steadily influencing those with power to regulate literally every facet of our lives since that time.

So let's wake up! Some new flavor of intervention or regulation cannot possibly fix the problems we are currently experiencing. We need to remember that freedom means just that - FREEDOM! Not just freedom of speech or religion, but freedom of the markets. Freedom to buy and sell without intervention. Freedom to truly own private property and do what you want with it. Freedom to protect your life and property against plunder. FREEDOM!

Walter Williams' article this morning comes to the same conclusions that I did a few days ago in my last entry (above)- Capitalism is getting unfairly blamed for the current crisis. He also thinks you're crazy if you believe this fairy tale. We haven't really had laissez-faire economics in this country, so how could they be to blame for the crisis? What activities do you engage in every day that are not somehow affected by a government regulation of some sort?

How about brushing your teeth? Well, the government says that we need flourine in our water to help keep our teeth hard, because apparently we can't be trusted to brush our own teeth.

How about going to the bathroom? Well, the government is concerned about how much water is wasted with each flush, so they've limited the tank capacity and regulated the water per flush for the toilets we buy.

Eating breakfast? Well, you can't be drinking that raw milk - it's dangerous.

Getting out of bed? Driving to work? Drinking a cup of tea? Making a phone call? Burning some brush in your back yard? Raising chickens in your back yard? Parking your car on the grass so you can wash it? Fixing your damaged mailbox? Protecting yourself from people who might do you harm? Don't worry, because the government has great concern for you, and they will make rules to protect you from yourself. I feel so much better.

Halloween Pictures

I forgot my camera, so thanks to my neighbor for helping out.
Here are the two Iron Men and a Big Chicken. (Don't call her a little chicken it makes her mad) Hannah got a little tired and was ready to be done.

We went with my neighbors and so there was a Big Chicken, two Iron Men, Hannah Montana, and Batman. It was fun.

Later we went up to my Parents and went trick-or-treating up around their house. It was a fun day for the kids.

SNOW!

We work up to about 6-8" of snow this morning. It was fun for the kids (after I dug through boxes to find winter clothes). Owen always has to make a snow man. He and Hannah could stay out all day, Brayden gets to cold.

Points To Ponder

At the risk of turing this into a political blog, I felt I needed to post the following and add my Amen.

Here is someone with the money to fund a rebuttal to what Howard Dean, Democratic National Committee Chairman, said recently that manyRepublican have never done an honest day's work in their life. The following full page ad was placed in the Washington Post by a businessman named George J. Esseff, Sr. He paid $104,655.60 to run thead and only did it because he is sick and tired of the way that "the rich" are portrayed by liberals these days. It is a great read. Maybe you're a Republican?

In today's America ask a growing number of high school and college students, their teachers and professors, the self-anointed media elite and/or hard working men and women of all ethnicities, the question,"What is a Republican?" and you'll be told "... a rich, greedy,egotistical individual, motivated only by money and the desire to accumulate more and more of it, at the expense of the environment, the working poor....and all whom they exploit..."

I am a Republican - And I am none of those things....and I don't knowany Republicans who are!
WHAT I AM first and foremost, is a loving husband of some 52 plusyears, the father of four and an American who's proud of hiscountry...and his country's heritage.

WHAT I AM is the grandson of immigrants who risked every-thing,including their lives and those of their children, to escape tyranny insearch of freedom.

WHAT I AM is a man who grew up during the Depression and witnessedfirst hand the effects of the Stock Market crash and the soup linesthat followed. I watched as both my parents and grand parents, who hadvery little themselves, share what food they had with a half dozenother families, who had even less.

WHAT I AM is someone who worked his way through college by holdingdown three and four jobs at a time and then used that education to builda better life.

WHAT I AM is a husband who at age 24 started his own business for the"privilege" of working 60, 70 and 80 hours a week, risking everything Ihad including my health, in search of a better life for myself and myloved ones.

WHAT I AM is a businessman whose blood, sweat and tears....and plentyof them..., made it possible for me to provide a secure living not onlyfor my family and myself, but also for literally hundreds of myemployees throughout the years. Employees who in turn were able to buytheir own homes, raise their own families and give back to theircommunities and their country.

WHAT I AM is a man who believes in God; a God who has blessed thiscountry... and all for which it stands.

WHAT I AM is someone who knows, if you doubt miracles exist intoday's world, you need only to look into the face of those who receivedthem....and the eyes of those who give them.

WHAT I AM is an American who's proud that his President embraces abelief in God; proud of a President who understands, as "politicallyincorrect" as it may be, there is evil in this world and for thesecurity and safety of all freedom loving people everywhere, it must beconfronted...and it must be defeated.

WHAT I AM is an American who takes comfort in the knowledge that ourPresident refuses to allow decisions concerning the very safety andsecurity of this nation, to be governed by the political whims offoreign governments.

WHAT I AM is tired of hearing from leading Democrats who see onlynegativity in America; racism in her people; class warfare in hersociety and "political incorrectness" in her character.

WHAT I AM is a former democrat who now understands that it is thesoldier and not the reporter that guarantees us our freedoms of press,speech and dissent.

WHAT I AM is a man who believes in the sanctity of life. A man who isrepulsed by the pandering of the political left for votes, at theexpense of the unborn.

WHAT I AM is a husband and father who believes in the sanctity ofmarriage and the preservation of the family unit.

WHAT I AM is a ex-movie goer who is repulsed by those insecure,socially inept, elementary thinking, ego-inflated "entertainers" whohave appointed themselves "experts" in the fields of national securityand geo-politics and then use their forum to attack this nation, itsleaders and its actions....much to the delight and encouragement of ourenemies.

WHAT I AM is an American who understands the difference between"censorship" and "choice." Evidently, these individuals do not, becausewhen these same "celebrities" receive public ridicule for theiroffensive actions, the first thing they yell is "censorship." What theyseem incapable of understanding is...the right of free speech anddissent is shared equally by those offended...as well as those whooffend. I support and will continue to support those films andperformers whom I choose to and refuse to support those I don't. It ismy right as an American a right I will continue to enthusiasticallyexercise.

WHAT I AM is a voter, tired of politicians who every time theirvoting records are subjected to public scrutiny, try to divert attentionfrom their political and legislative failures by accusing theiropponents of "attack ads" and "negative campaigning"....and the newsmedia who allow them to get away with it.

WHAT I AM is a Catholic who loves his God and his Faith....and who'sbeen taught to respect all religions whose teachings are based in love,peace and charity. As such, I am embarrassed and ashamed of thoseindividuals in both private and public life whose decisions and actionsare devoid of any sense of character or morals; individuals who are onlydriven by what's best for them....rather than what's right... oftentimes at the expense of many....including our national security.

WHAT I AM is a realist who understands that the terrorist attack thatmurdered hundreds of innocent Russian children could have occurred here,in our heartland. That's why I sincerely believe America needs now, morethan ever, a President who sees with a clear and focused vision and whospeaks with a voice when heard by both friend and foe alike isunderstood, respected and believed.

WHAT I AM is eternally grateful to Ronald Reagan for having thebravery to speak out against Communism and the courage of hisconvictions in leading the fight to defeat it; and George W. Bush forthe vision, courage, conviction and leadership he has shown in America'swar on terrorism amidst both the constant and vicious, personal andpolitical attacks both he and his family are made to endure.

WHAT I AM is a human being, full of numerous faults and failures, buta man nonetheless who though not always successful has continuallystrived to do "what's right" instead of "what's easy." A man who ischallenging the religious leaders of all faiths, to not only preach totheir congregations the fundamentals of "what's right" and "what'swrong," but to also then hold them accountable for their actions in boththe public and private sectors.

WHAT I AM is disgusted with the Courts who on one hand call themurder of a pregnant woman a "double homicide," but then refer to theabortion of her baby as "pro-choice".

WHAT I AM is someone deeply troubled by a political party whichembraces a candidate whose primary "leadership" qualities center aroundhis protesting of the Vietnam war and his labeling the honorable men andwomen who fought in it, (50,000 of whom gave their lives in thataction), as rapists, and war criminals (John Kerry). That same politicalparty then stepped forward this year to block the appearance of a trueVietnam war hero, retired Admiral and former United States Senator,Jeremiah Denton, (a man who spent seven years and seven torturous monthsin a North Vietnam prison), from speaking before an open session of theCalifornia legislature as part of that state's 4th of July celebration.The reason Democrats gave for refusing to allow this American hero tospeak before their state legislature was because of the "conservative"nature of his views. As an American, that troubles me deeply....as wellit should you. (Are you listening Mr. D?)

WHAT I AM is a man who feels the need to spend, ONE HUNDRED & FOURTHOUSAND, SIX HUNDRED & FIFTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS ($104, 655.60, taxpaid) of his own money, to purchase this advertisement, in order to set the story straight. Some may say this money would have been better spent feeding the world's poor. At the risk of sounding self-serving, as an merican and as a Republican, for the last six decades of my life, I have done exactly that...and more. Following the examples of my parents nd grandparents, I have used my earnings to feed the poor, shelter the homeless, provide housing for the elderly and medical care for the sick.....and continue to do so...and I'm not alone in that work.

WHAT I AM is someone who is paying for this announcement at my sole expense in hopes of opening the eyes of those led blindly by ill-informed elements of our great nation, who, through eithe rignorance, or malicious intent, repeatedly attack and belittle those of us who belong to a political party that holds true to the belief, "The rights of the governed, exceed the power of the government." For those interested, I am speaking only as a tax-paying individual who is in no way associated with the Republican National Committee, nor with any ofits directors, or delegates.

WHAT I AM is a man who understands, "the American way of life" is a message of self-empowerment for all.

WHAT I AM is an American who is grateful that our nation gives eachof us the opportunity of self-determination and the right to benefit from the fruits of self achievement.

WHAT I AM is an American who wants to preserve that way of life forall who seek it.

WHAT I AM is blessed to be an American.... and proud to be a Republican

Be Prepared

What people experienced in hurricane IKE


Being prepared if key to survival.


Just to let you know that we are doing well. We have a 6'x6' hole in our roof, no electricity or running water, Trees down everywhere. However, because we Listened to the counsel of our Prophet we are prepared. Infact it seems to me that it's only the members of the church who seem to be calm, prepared, and helping one another with trees in roofs, flooding, etc.

There is a POD or Point of Distrubution in Tomball where we live.There you get water and ice IF you have enough fuel towait in the 3 hour lines. We don't have to do that because we have 3 full water barrels, 75 juice bottlesfilled with water, and our pool which is dirty but we use it to flush.

t is very difficult to get gas. Police guard the stations when fuel is delivered and you might wait half a day to getup to the pump just to have them say, "Too bad, we are out". I am grateful that we have a generator. We run it 4 hours aday to keep our fridge and light. I am grateful that we have had fuel for it. You can't even by gas containers as they are rationed. We can only by bread once a week and limited to 2 loaves at a time. Water is rationed by the case at the grocery store 3 cases per family.

he Atm machines do not have power. For the past 6 months I have stashed small bills away because I have had such a feeling of foreboding. We have cash because of that. LISTEN TO THE SPIRIT. Get cash in small bills because the stores can't make change and credit and debit cards often don't work. I had to pay 5 dollars more for an item because they couldn't make change for me.

PHONES ONLY WORK OCCASIONALY. Believe it or not...I have not had a bath in 4 days, Today was the first day I got to wash my hair with pool water. I haven't fixed my hair in a week!!! It just doesn't matter anymore. We can not do laundry because we don't have water. So, we wear our clothes until they are literallydisgusting.

When we do finally get water we will have to boil it since it is contaminated. I am grateful for my parents. When we got low on generator fuel they drove 45 minutes to help us. They filled up thier cans and brought us 10 gallons of fuel which kept us going until this morning at 6:oo am when we finally found some gas.

A prepared Family and a loving extened family is the key to survival and making it through right now. I know that my parents would drive to the end of the earth to help me and it's nice knowing they are there. I know that I would do the same for my children.

I want all of you to know that I have such a testimony of following the counsel of our living prophet. There really is safety and peace in your heart if you are prepared. Please get your generators, 5 gas cans full of gas, canned goods,baby items, baby wipes to bathe, and all the water you canstore...even if you have to trip on it in your home. Have your lanterns, crank flashlights, tarps, rope, etc.. readyto go because you never know when it will be your turn to endure the test. It's overwhelming, but it's goingto be ok eventually. I have a home, I have food, I have water, because i listened to the counsel of the prophet.

PLease make sure you do the same. It's time to have your life in order Tomorrow may be too late. Take care!

Neat Story

I have seen the following story before but I saw it again and thought it was worth sharing.


At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves learning-disabled children, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a question: 'When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does is done with perfection. Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do. Where is the natural order of things in my son?' The audience was stilled by the query. The father continued. 'I believe that when a child like Shay, physically and mentally handicapped comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents itself, and it comes in the way other people treat that child.' Then he told the following story: Shay and his father had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball. Shay asked, 'Do you think they'll let me play?' Shay's father knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but the father also understood that if his son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his handicaps. Shay's father approached one of the boys on the field and asked (not expecting much) if Shay could play. The boy looked around for guidance and said, 'We're losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team and we'll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning.' Shay struggled over to the team's bench and, with a broad smile, put on a team shirt. His Father watched with a small tear in his eye and warmth in his heart. The boys saw the father's joy at his son being accepted. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay's team scored a few runs but was still behind by three. In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the right field. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as his father waved to him from the stands. In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay's team scored again. Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat. At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game? Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat . Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible because Shay didn't even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball. However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the pitcher, recognizing that the other team was putting winning aside for this moment in Shay's life, moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least make contact. The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed. The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay. As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher. The game would now be over. The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman. Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game. Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the first baseman's head, out of reach of all team mates. Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, 'Shay, run to first! Run to first!' Never in his life had Shay ever run that far, but he made it to first base. He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled. Everyone yelled, 'Run to second, run to second!' Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran towards second, gleaming and struggling to make it to the base. By the time Shay rounded towards second base, the right fielder had the ball ... the smallest guy on their team who now had his first chance to be the hero for his team. He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher's intentions so he, too, intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman's head. Shay ran toward third base deliriously as the runners ahead of him circled the bases toward home. All were screaming, 'Shay!, Shay!, Shay! ... All the way Shay!' Shay reached third base because the opposing shortstop ran to help him by turning him in the direction of third base, and shouted, 'Run to third! Shay, run to third!' As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams, and the spectators, were on their feet screaming, 'Shay, run home! Run home!' Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the grand slam and won the game for his team. 'That day', said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, 'the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world.' Shay didn't make it to another summer. He died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making his father so happy, and coming home and seeing his Mother tearfully embrace her little hero of the day!

Mandy


Well, we finally let Mandy go today. She was so sick so I took her up to have it taken care of and it was very sad. She was such a good dog and we have had her since before any of the kids were born. We got her not to long after we moved into this house. I thought the kids would be sad but they all just said we still have Deegan. Deegan seems upset though so the kids have been playing with him.

Last Day of School




Friday was the last day of school. This is a picture of the boys on their way to their last day of school. It was a good year for the boys they have grown so much.

Hannah and Owen both went to the Dr. also. Hannah's lungs sounded really good and as long as she doesn't have another episode, like the last one, in the next few months we wont have to put her on a daily inhaled steroid. So hopefully she wont have any more problems.

Owen went to an endocrinologist, he seemed very good. He said Owen is not diabetic now but he has no way to predict if he will become diabetic or when. He wants us to keep monitoring him and come back in a couple months for another Hemoglobin A1c test. There is defiantly something up with him we just don't know what it is yet. Hopefully we will get it all figured out soon.

To finish off the day there was a police standoff two doors down.


Quite the day.

I got the pictures to work.
