Kids...say funny things.

This morning I told the girls who our next president is going to be. They didn't watch the returns one because it is somewhat boring, two they wanted to watch "Kitt Kittredge". When we decided to watch it my oldest said that it may be appropriate to watch that movie because if Obama wins we will be in a great depression. Then this morning when I told the younger one, her quote - "he's a potato head". I think there may be a little truth in that - you don't know what face he will put on.

All I know is the gov't will take care of everything. Who do you want gov't bailout or Jesus Christ the leader of all taking care of you?

John 16:33 - "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."

This was not the seen at our house last night.

Later Peeps!

He won by a landslide!

We just held our mock election at our school today. The McCain/Palin ticket won by a landslide. Myself, the girls, and all animals and dolls voted. The dolls and animals were able to vote thanks to ACORN's ability to register them as voters Little did ACORN know that they were going to vote republican. It was a good clean election - not a long wait, no hanging chads, proper id's, and everyone had a verifiable address. It was a good clean election and was able to call it when the voting was done. The lawyers were sad that we didn't need them to go and prepare anything.

Here's hoping this will truly happen tomorrow.

Be an Informed Voter!!!
