Early bird...

... gets the worm???? Hope so!

I voted today!

It felt so good, too. Couldn't believe the line when we pulled up outside of the County Election Board. Luckily, it moved quickly and we were in and out in about 15 - 20 minutes.

Did I mention that it felt amazing!!! There's just something about having a voice, however small, in such a historic event.

Now... off to wait 'till Tuesday...

10 years ago today...

... my heart sprouted arms and legs! Just look at it now...

Happy Birthday, Mac!!! I am so proud of the young lady you've become. The world is yours, kid. All yours!!!

I love you,

Have you tried geocaching, yet?

We had a long weekend, today is our last day off school... back to the grind tomorrow. We spend a few hours geocaching. If you have never tried it, I highly recommend it. You'll need a gps unit, but honestly, decent ones can be had on ebay for little money (trust me... we are broker than broke! one appealing thing about this hobby is that it costs very little to participate and the return is immeasurable!!)

Today had us trodding around Oxley Nature Center at Mohawk Park. A great time was had by all!!! We found three caches! A very productive day, not to mention the picnic in the park and the time spent at the playground!


Oh, yeah... The Diva lost one of her front teeth this weekend :( I wasn't quite ready for that!!

Hardly. But look what we created over Fall Break...

(l. to r.: Obama symbol; classic pumpkin face by Mac; witch with missing eye by The Diva; goofy pumpkin face by Mic)

Saggy and missing important body parts because we made these the day before we snapped the pictures so time and chickens had a bit of fun with the big orange veggies. Oh well, we had a blast and they look amazing!

Happy Halloween!!
