October is a New Day

I am happy that it is October. Cooler nights, darker earlier and dark mornings. Emily will sleep later. This girl loves life. She wakes singing. When I go in to get her she says "good norming, it's a new perfect day". I could learn a lot from this child. What a great outlook to have. She always follow with "daddy not go work today-daddy stay home with mimi and mommy". I hate breaking her heart-sorry honey daddy will be home after. Her response "pretty soon daddy come home". She always puts a positive spin on things.
Two things are weighing heavy on my mind. I get all worked up watching CNN. I need Obama to win. I think he will. I just get scared seeing all the crazies saying crap. McCain is McCrazy in my book. And Sarah Palin. Well I'll just leave it at that. I cannot wait for elections to be over. I heart Obama. I've already taught Emily. Emily? Who are you gonna vote for? She shouts "OBAMA" with a little fist in the air. VOTE.
Now the second thing. The Tree Man. Coming on TV on Sunday on TLC at 7 central. I cannot wait to see this. Even if it was up against Obama singing "You're The One That I Want" to me from the Convention Center. I would have to blow him off. I am fascinated by the Tree Man. I can't wait to watch it. I can't get those pictures of his hands out of my mind. American doctors are helping him. I can't imagine what they will do. He has like wooden, rooty looking hands and woody growths on him. Not small woody hands. More like tree stumps. It's unbelievable. I keep going over it again and again in my mind. Suppose the fix is quite simple. Suppose it's like a little weed killer or something? I can't wait. I need help.
Well, thanks for listening. Enjoy the pictures and each other. Happy Fall. I miss you mom.

Our not so friendly Ike

Okay, September sucked too! We are thankful that we were all okay and the house was okay too. The only damage was outside. I thought I would be prepared mentally for the hurricane. You know, coming from New England and all. NEVER have I heard wind like that in my entire life. I was scared. When Ike finally left, and we stepped outside, I gasped and started crying. Until sensible Bill hugged me and said it was just stuff outside and all of it could be replaced. Most importantly he said, is that we are all okay and we are all together. Riley had left ahead of the storm. He was planning on going to New Orleans. He had to nix those plans pronto. He headed to Oklahoma(small detour) before continuing on his trip. Things are back to normal here. FEMA trucks came and carted off all the debris in our area. We still are waiting for our fence to be repaired. They're kinda busy. I feel very sad about Galveston. We were just there and now it's gone. Hard to believe. Well time to move to October and better days. I miss you mom.

Beautiful Girl

Sorry it has been so long since I posted. August SUCKED big time. I miss you mom. I guess I should be thankful that Riley was here with us. I am glad we were all together. I know you all want to see Emily (especially you Nawn) updated. So here are some recent pictures with Riley thrown in too. Enjoy. Ike will follow.
