Blessed and Grateful!!!

Big Brother walks his little Sister up to the houses...I don't think there is anything cuter!!!

Friday night ...Trick or much fun! We had a Gator Cheerleader and Darth Vader visit...just the best!!!

I am thankful to God to live in this great country! I do not take any of my blessings for granted...I walked with my Hubby on Saturday 6 miles round trip to vote at our local library, a library I might add that is beautifully filled with books, movies, magazines, computers and newspapers. We waited in line for an hour and I was so excited to see this many people caring enough about their country to vote! After, we voted we walked to a small restaurant that is owned by a man who was an executive chef to a restaurant that was in the twin towers...It is now my favorite restaurant! My Hubby and I walked home and then watched our beloved Gators ...okay...I fell asleep but Hubby watched!

We got up and went to church because I have the freedom to worship in my country without fear of persecution...Hubby and I had lunch out with two other couples who are just a joy to be around! Sunday afternoon...we went and listened to Jimmy Buffett who gave of his time for a free concert for our political candidate!

I am proud to be an American and I am Christian...I don't profess to be a Christian...I am one by faith!

Adorable. Just adorable.

I am headed out Tuesday to vote. I wanted to wait until the actual day as I find it more exciting that way. Besides, I am a procrastinator.

Fun photos! Was wondering if you knew this. Mom and Dad said this happened earlier in the week but the press refused to report it. HUH?

Obama speechwriter Wendy Button switched to McCain b/c Democrats under Obama are belittling working-class people like Joe the Plumber

Ditto!! I am very happy to be able to participate in the election process, to attend the church of my choice and enjoy my home and family in freedom.
