#137 - Friends and Elections

After voting in the Primary election this morning the girls and I had our traditional pancakes! 3 out of the 4 I voted for won, but our choice for the Governor nominee lost. :(
And yes, it is May 17th and not only do the girls have on sweatshirts, but we've also had our heat on today. I think the high today was. 45. degres. Seriously :o)

Tonight our sweet friend, Amanda, came over to spend some time with us before she goes back home to Virginia for the summer. It seems like it's been a decade ago when she came to our church her Freshman year and now she is finishing up her Junior year at college! We love her dearly and we'll miss her this summer!!!

Update on the bird parent attackers - they are still guarding the front of the house and squawk their beaks off at us me everytime I step outside!

Election Day Traditions

Each election day we get up around 5:30 A.M., throw on some clothes, and head to the polling place to stand in line for about 15 minutes until they open the doors. Then we exercise our right to vote for the individual that we feel should be holding a public office. Of course, we are all accountable to God for not only IF we vote, but also WHO we vote for!

Here are the girls after we got back home from voting.
*Please note that the sun still hasn't risen at this time.

Our election day tradition includes stopping by Mickey D's on the way home to pick up some pancakes!

Then directly after our pancake celebration we all go to my bed and take a nap! :D

We got to keep Bella again on Tuesday night, so today on our way to take her home we stopped by to see the new sheriff! :D

Here is Poppy and his grand-girls!

Go V-O-T-E!!!

Tomorrow is the big day! Please go vote!!! We'll be up bright and early to cast our vote for the ones that we feel should be holding government offices. We are accountable to God to make sure we vote and also who we vote for! Make a difference and please VOTE!!!!
"Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual - or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to... God and his country."

Babies, Hayrides, & Election Sermons!

Friday night we got to keep our sweet great niece, Bella. We hadn't seen her in about 2 1/2 weeks and we were missing her just a bit! She did pretty good with us and missed her Momma a little I believe. But we did do a little dancing to the Pride&Prejudice Soundtrack at 2:00 a.m. and it helped to put her right back to sleep :D

See her two new teeth?! :D

She is so precious and has the sweetest little personality!
Brian and I both were dragging a bit on Saturday and we agreed that there is a reason why we have youngins when we're younger! Saturday evening our homeschool co-op had a fall family cookout. It was a lot of fun and all the kiddos enjoyed themselves. Here is our gang before going on the hay ride.

The weather was perfect and the sunset that night was breath taking!

We had an old fashioned "Election Sermon" Sunday night at our church! Bro. Don Pinson from Heritage Ministries of Ky preached a sermon to our local candidates about the role of government, their role in government, and how God is the author of government! We had sent out 55 invitations to local candidates and we had 18 to show up! We have 2 in our congregation that is running for State Senate and County Clerk. And my father-in-law is running for sheriff.

At the end of the service each candidate was given a Declaration of Independance, a New Testament Bible, & a music CD with "God Bless America" and then Bro. Kenny prayed over all of them and asked for God's will to be done in the election results. It was a very powerful service and up until about 1875 these types of services were very popular.

We are praying that November 2nd brings GOOD change for America!
You can guarantee that we'll be waiting for the polls to open next Tuesday!!!
