MERRY CHRISTMAS... this one makes you think!

*Twas the month before Christmas*
*When all though our land*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*See the PC Police had taken away,*
*The reason for Christmas - no one could say.*
*The children were told by their schools not to sing,*
*About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.*
*It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say*
* December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.*
*Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit*
*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*
*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*
*Something was changing, something quite odd! *
*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*
*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.*
*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*
* At Lowe's the word Christmas - was nowhere to be found.*
*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears*
*You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.*
*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty*
*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*
*Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*
*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!*
*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*
*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*
*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*
* Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*
*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*
*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*
*So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'*
*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*
*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*
*Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!*

Best Buddies

Ok so i went over to my friend Jenna's to do each others hair. (ILOVE MINE BTW) I brought Lexi along because their little girly is about the same age as her. When we got there it took Ashtyn a few minutes to warm up to her but after she did they were like best friends the whole night. Lexi loved having a little friend that she could play with. They went and got out the dress shoes and played together in Ashtyns room with all her cool toys. And then there are these pictures which are so stinkin cute i love them!!!

This one is when they were eating their suckers (which Ashtyn so kindly shared) and watching "Po" (kung fu panda)

This is them having goldfish crackers and carrying they're babies around... ADORABLE!!!

And this was after they jumped on the bed for a little while they cuddled up together and thought they were so funny!

they had so much fun that lxi crashed assoon as we got home! its nice having an excuse to go over to a friends house!!! "I have to go see jenna cuz lexi wants to go play with ashtyn." ;-) i love it.


Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.
Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.
Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.
Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of carpets.
Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.
Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' and get their answer when a little voice says, 'Because I love you best..'
Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade...It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother...
