Be thankful everyday

So as most of you know I am a part of a baby board on Baby center, where we offer advice and can create great friendships... But as much happiness and joy that comes out of these boards there are always some sadness and sorrow. Just recently one of the ladies whose baby was born just 8 days before Lexie, was called up to God by SIDS. He was also taken on Lexie's 4 month birthday. This story brings tears to my eyes and makes me so sad and I just can't imagine what this family is going through! It makes me wanna just hold onto all 3 of the girls and kiss them all over until they are super sick of kisses! It also makes me thank God everyday for blessing me with these 3 beautiful girls and I thank him every day that he keeps them in our lives. It makes me realize just how much I take for granted through out the days. And I will from now on stop and talk to Elli no matter what, I will stop and watch Sammy throw her baseball across the backyard, and I will now stop and just listen to Lexie babble on and on in happiness! You just don't know which day will be your last. Everyday is a gift and I will no longer take any of them for granted. I pray that I will get to watch all 3 of the girls grow up happy, healthy, get married, have babies of their own, and even watch them become grandparents! That is my biggest wish and prayer... So don't take any day for granted! I surely won't be!!

They're home!

So Hiram and Sammy made it home safetly last night or should I say early this morning! They were supposed to leave Chicago at 9:30 (CST) and land at 11pm (MST) well that didn't happen and they actually left Chicago at 10:30 (CST) and landed at 12am (MST) and then it took them another 30 minutes to get off the plane to baggage claim... Then they were having baggage problems so another 30 minutes before we got the bags and headed to the car... I brought both Elli and Lexie to the airport (I know crazy since it was so late) but Sammy and Elli missed each other so much that I knew it would be good for them to see each other... Plus Elli wanted to show Sammy their new doll house so I didn't want her to be asleep... So they were so cute (as always lol) and they were holding hands everywhere we went in the airport and all the way to the car... And they both had stuffed animals for each other (Elli gave Sammy a giraffe, and Sammy gave Elli a Scooby Doo).... And they loved them! Hugged on them all night... So we finally go to the car around 1:30am got all the luggage in the car and headed home! It was so nice to see them again... Elli and Sammy fell asleep on the way home, but they fell asleep holding hands and heads together!! They are the best of friends and I really wish I had had a camera handy to take a picture because it was the sweetest thing! So then we get home and Elli was super excited to show Sammy their new room! The dollhouse but more importantly Sammy's new big girl bed! That is right Sammy is now in her very own big girl bed, no more cribs for her!! So we get them all ready for bed and of course they didn't want to sleep alone, so Elli crawled in with Sammy and they fell asleep together! I am so blessed to have girls who love each other so much!!!

A little break

Ok so Hiram and Sammy are now in Chicago for 5 days :( I miss them like crazy! But these 5 days are going to be good for everyone I think!! I get to spend some really good one on one time with Elli and he gets to with Sammy, and the girls get to have a little break from each other too... I am going to take Elli and Lexie to the park a couple times... I am going to take Elli to dinner and shopping plus she gets to sleep with mommy and Lexie and she absolutely loves the idea of that!!! Plus Sammy is going to get spoiled rotten by all our family there in Chicago... Yet I still keep finding myself wishing the time away so that I can see my precious baby girl and my wonderful husband again! I miss them so much and I am sure they miss us too!! Until Monday, I am off to spend good quality time with Elli and Lexie!!

Irritates me to no end!!

Ok a disclaimer first.... If you don't like my political views and will get pissy over this post, you may want to leave now and not look any further... I didn't want to make this blog too political but this is going to be my first political post because the hypocracy and double standards pisses me off to no end!

I am sick and tired of people talking about how "awesome" Obama is... Ok you like him so f***ing what! Nobody cared when I liked Bush, in fact I got burned for it more times then one... Yes I know he wasn't one of the best presidents but he DID have out best interests at heart... At least in my opinion... Obama, not so much... Anyway on to what this is about... Again I say (And I have steam coming out my ears right now!!) the hypocrisy and double standard is ridiculous and absolute bullshit (sorry for the language!) Here is an article I just recieved about an outrage over Obama's face being photoshopped in the Joker... Read on and you will find out why I am so angry over this....

Spoof poster of Obama's face painted as The Joker branded 'dangerous and mean-spirited'
By Mail Foreign ServiceLast updated at 2:25 PM on 04th August 2009

A poster depicting Barack Obama as Batman villain The Joker has been called 'mean-spirited and dangerous' by the U.S. President's supporters.

The image, which has been adopted by Mr Obama's critics, shows him wearing the white face paint and smudged red lips of the character most recently played by the late actor Heath Ledger. Beneath the picture reads the word 'socialism'.

Controversy: The poster, which depicts President Barack Obama as Batman villain The Joker has divided U.S. opinion

The creator of the image remains unknown, but the website that first published the image crashed yesterday because so many had been attempting to view it. It has since been spotted in Los Angeles and Atlanta after it appeared in U.S. media.

The right-wing editor of the American Thinker website, Thomas Lifson, wrote today: 'It is starting.
Inspiration: The poster mimics the make-up worn by late actor Heath Ledger in the latest Batman film

'Open mockery of of Barack Obama, as disillusionment sets in with the man, his policies, and the phony image of a race-healing, brilliant, scholarly middle-of-the-roader.'
But the President's supporters have condemned the image, calling it 'mean-spirited and dangerous.'

A spokesman from the Los Angeles urban policy unit said that depicting the president as demonic and a socialist 'goes beyond political spoofery.'

The image comes as the President faces criticism over his plans to create a $1trillion healthcare programme.

Republican chairman Michael Steele first used the word 'socialism' in relation to Mr Obama two weeks ago as he slammed the President's attempts to push Congress into passing the healthcare reforms.

What a difference a year makes, huh?

How quickly they forget

Obama-bots are in a tizzy over a silly poster of Dear Leader as The Joker.

The BDS-infected Left may have wiped the violent imagery and assassination fascination targeting the president from their memories.

I haven’t:

As Hillary Clinton famously yelled, “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, ‘WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!’”

Free speech. It might be the very best thing about America, even when it irks.

Ok so here are links to both the Obama Joker and the Bush Joker.... Now why is it ok to do it to Bush and not Obama???!!!

Night training

Ok so now that Elli is officially potty trained (it has been 21 days today without an accident and we don't have to put her on the potty she just goes without asking) during the day.... It is time to work on night training, I think.... lol... So we did the same that we did with the training... Just going to take the diapers away and just put her in panties... I know it's a risk since the night she has less control of her bowels... But she gets drier and drier each morning... So last night was our first experimentation... I put two pairs of thick training underwear on plus a pair of plastic undies.... She did not stay dry :( But I figured as much... But it wasn't enough to go through the plastic pants to the sheet... So yay the sheet was spared lol... Although I know now for the next however long we will be doing at least one load of laundry a day LOL.... So now just wish us luck!!!
