I have issues with my computer that are making it difficult to post pictures, which is one of the main reasons I haven't been blogging much lately.
However, there are many issues plaguing our country that I cannot refrain from writing about, if only to clarify where I stand. As most of you know, I have another blog: For The Love of Liberty. I recently wrote a post about my thoughts on the health care bill. I don't even know if anyone read the post except someone I hardly know. This particular individual wrote me a scathing message, ripping everything I said to shreds. It got the wheels turning in my head. I decided that it would be impossible to write an adequate response to her message in any timely matter. And since I am a mom and have limits on my time, I decided to respond to different parts of her message individually.
Like most of you, I want very much to do something to change the tide in our country. I decided that for now, one of the things I can (and must) do is work out the arguments in my mind. So, for the sake of formulating intelligent arguments and articulating my positions correctly, I will be writing more on my Liberty blog. If this is something of interest to you, please read and comment on my posts... I welcome any ideas on where I may be missing a point, or even another point of view that I have not considered. I don't often get together with people to talk politics (though I'd love to!), so this is a forum where I can generate conversations that will sharpen my mind - and hopefully serve to prepare anyone interested to effectively communicate their ideas on freedom.
Please let me know what you think! You can link to my other blog here.

Three Years and Six Months

Time goes quickly, especially when measured by the growth of my kidlets! This last while (I use the word "while" loosely here) has been overwhelming. My lack of blogging has been a natural consequence of the state of overwhelm, so now my goal is to do a little catching up. Three weeks ago my dear grandmother came into town for a visit. The next week (February 24th) was Weston's third birthday and her 85th birthday.
We had a super fun family party, but it was almost impossible to get a good shot of the birthday boy... most of his pictures looked something like this:
We had a Cars themed partyWeston was pretty much thrilled with all his presentsThree great-grandmas were there:He was a pretty happy kid!It may have been Weston's birthday, but he wasn't the only one getting attention! Sophie reached her 6 month mark a few days earlier. I am still wrapping my brain around the fact that she is already half a year old. So, what's Sophie up to these days?
Playing with her brother's toys. Attempting to crawl...And melting our hearts with her beauty.
