It's party time!!

I told you all that Tom had a birthday on Monday. He told me he really didn't want a party but I couldn't let his b-day go by without at least a cake. So I had a friend who learned to make Wilton cakes bake him a cake and her sister decorated it. I invited family and a couple of close friends to come over on Tuesday night (as I had taken Tom out for his b-day on Monday the actual day) and have cake and ice cream. We left the time open because every body is so busy. By 9:oo pm everyone had arrived. Tom was working on a truck for a friend but stopped to have some cake. The whole cake was eaten. Every single morsel, save a very small piece I had put back for my mom. She ate that piece today. That tells you we had a great cake. Gifts were optional. I bought Tom a pair of basketball shoes and the girls got him a gift card for Lowe's. He says he is missing some tools so we were trying to help him replenish. His friend Luke got him this little helicopter that fly's. It's pretty cool. A boy and his His parents sent him money. I think he is planning to add it to the gift card for some tools.

Tom had a great time. He didn't want to take the time for cake but afterwords he was so glad he did. It was a great night and we all had fun.

My sweetie turned 32 today on November 10th. I took him out for dinner at the Longhorn Steakhouse and then bought him a pair of shoes he had been wanting from the Finish Line. He well deserved the nice evening.
I love you Tom and I pray we will have many more wonderful birthdays to celebrate together. You are the love of my life and my very best friend. Love you!!

I am very saddened by the results of the election. I am not a big politician follower. I have never voted before this year. Not in the Presidential elections anyway. I found out this year what I have been missing out on. My chance to make my voice heard. Not audibly but by my ballot I let America know where I stand in this election. Did it turn out the way I wanted it too?? No it didn't. Am I going to bury my head in the sand and refuse to be an American because of the results?? Absolutely not!! This is still America! This is still my Country! I am still an American! I will stay right where I am and continue to be an American. The land of the free and home of the brave.

Do I think that there will be consequences as a result of this election?? There are always consequences by the choices we make. The Bible says that the Israelite children wanted a King. They in fact demanded a King. God didn't want them to have a king but they were adamant. So God let them have a king. The result was a ruler who was a tyrant. The children of Israel suffered greatly under his leadership.

As a christian, I am going to pray for Mr. Obama that God will direct all of his decisions. I am going to support America and trust that God is still in control and He will take care of His people. Will I suffer?? Probably. The American voices were heard. The people cried out for Mr. Obama. Now all we can do as a nation is wait and watch. We will soon see just what Mr. Obama's "change" really is. Let's just pray that it is the right change for America.

One thing I do know, is that while I don't hate the man, Obama, I hate the moral issues that he stands for. The very things that Mr. Obama supports, God abhors. As a christian, I cannot agree with Mr. Obama. As an American, I still have to support my country even though I don't agree.

So I will pray for Mr. Obama and leave him in the hands of a Just God. God is in control!! I do not have to fear. That is a POWERFUL feeling!!

Trick-or-Treat night

We were privileged this year to be able to stay in our own community to trick-or-treat this year. All the other years we had to go to other communities to collect candy and there were some situations that I felt were not good for my girls. I talked with the board of Seabreeze Community and they voted unanimously to have trick/treat night here in our own community. So this was our first attempt since I have lived here and I have to say it was a BIG success.

We met at the PO at the front of campus where several church families came in and parked with their trunks open. The kids were able to go around to the vehicles for treats before starting around campus. We had some really nicely decorated vehicles. We even had some McCain/Palin representatives here to celebrate as well. The kids were all dressed up and ready for a fun time. We had Little Bo Peep, Cinderella, a pumpkin, an angel, Joe the Plumber, Mr. McCain, several soldiers and knights. We even had a pirate girl. I think the adults had as much fun as the kids did. Here are a few pictures.

I think that everyone had a great time and we're looking forward to next year. Hope your having a fun Fall.
