not a creature was stirring....

It's finally quiet in our household. Zach hauled himself up to bed at 8:30 when the kids went! I'm just revving up at that time; a bit of quiet all to myself (well, including Sweet Pea). I've got pictures to post on some school things and some of Sweet Pea and hope to load them on the computer tomorrow. Tonight while throngs of children went door-to-door we watched Finding Neverland. I really liked it. I'd gotten it from the library for the kiddos. A good, clean, family movie. They tend to roll their eyes at those, at least Zach & the boys....I guess not enough action for them. Those are the kind I prefer though! I've been becoming quite addicted to various games in facebook and that also has stolen some of my time. Other than that nothing too exciting. We had beautiful weather today and the kiddos got to play outside a bit.

Can I get on a political rant a bit? I am SO sick of hearing about Obama this and that. I'm absolutely tired of his name! Everybody acts like he's a savior or something and I just get an ill feeling about the guy...I tend to call him the anti-Christ (am I even allowed to post that?). I know many of my family is Democrat as well as the people where I come from. It's not like I wear a pin that says Republican. I think we really need to look at the ISSUES. More and more these days its been on my mind how far our country has fallen from where it was founded. It just breaks my heart...I can't imagine what it does to God's. On a quick tangent...today we learned about Hippocrates, the 'father of medicine'. Did you know that in the original Hippocratic Oath it stated how they would not allow a woman an instrument with which to have an abortion? I found that very interesting. Ok, anyway...every website I go to all about Obama yet we hear nothing of McCain (or the others for that matter). And Zach told me that the people in Kentucky that hung an Obama mannequin by a noose were arrested but not those who did it to a Sarah Palin one??? That is secondhand info...I didn't look it up to confirm. It just irritates me. I was reading our area's online newspaper a few days ago and they were saying how they endorsed Obama. Uh, yeah the whole media has painted him in such a light, making him out to be a kind of god. It is really scary. This world is seriously coming to an end. Thankfully I have my trust in Jesus and I can have peace through Him.

On to another (less controversial) subject. I do have more I'd like to say on the whole political thing but I really need to form my thoughts better... I am really, really, really confused about my neighbor. I've seen the guy numerous times, talked to him, etc. A few weeks ago a man knocks at my door handing me a flier for our block Halloween party (uh, no thanks). He looked SO familiar and I was just looking at him weird, knowing I knew him but trying to place which neighbor he was. I could have sworn he was Gene, the guy next door, but he looked so different. I've seen him a few other times now (at his house) and he looks completely different and I can't for the life of me figure out why. It's not like I want to stare at him when I see him! I told Zach I'm not sure if he had Botox or what. It really bugs me!!! Hopefully I can figure it out soon...I guess maybe one day I'll have that AHA! moment where the light bulb goes off!

Well, I'm getting sleepy and the time's getting late. Goodnight!

Nic calls Obama the anti-christ too! Haha! My mind feels a bit worried about a socialist president in this country, but my heart also knows that God's hand is over all of us who love him and we have nothing to worry about.

Psalm 27:1
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Of course, I had to keep repeating that to myself over and over the other night when we passed this super creepy guy as we were jogging across the new bridge at night, HA!

Ohhh maybe the neighbor has a twin living in the basement or something. So he looks like him, just different. Or he's a real life Jekyl and Hyde lol. Imagine the possibilities when you think like a bad sitcom writer ha ha ha.

I didn't like Finding Neverland because James Berry does seem like he was a little creepy to me.

Oh yeah, did your neighbor shave off a mustache or beard? Somebody we know once shaved off his mustache and I didn't notice that until Jeremiah pointed it out, I just noticed he looked different.

I will be so glad when November 5th rolls around. All you can do is vote and pray because other than that its pretty much out of your hands.

Cute pic of CB below. She'll be a good mommy someday.
