On a happier note, I just got my new sweater! Check it out (in case you can't read it, it says "We can do it" "McCain /Palin '08)!!! For any of you wanting one of these ballin' sweaters, I got it at cafepress.com. They have a ton of Sarah Palin stuff! Also, here's a few pictures of my little man! I haven't posted any pictures of him forever, or at least it seems! He is just so much fun and is growing so fast!
This kid is WILD!

This is a picture of our master bedroom in the basement! This was the UGLIEST room in the world! You couldn't even imagine! The wall paper was a country blue with little pink flower! It was EVERYWHERE too, including the door! It was on the sheet rock too, so we had to re-texture all the walls! There were these HIDEOUS gold lamps in there too! Here is a glimpse of the new paint on the walls!
So Nathan and I got the most AMAZING deal EVER on these gorgeous, real hardwood floors! That's right folks, real hardwood, not laminate, not partial, solid hardwood! We went to The Home Depot and they had this as a returned special order, they had already reduced the price and we were just looking when the manager saw and came up to us and said he would give us 50% off the already reduced price! So....we paid less than 2 dollars a square foot! Can you believe that? It was funny too because it was exactly what we had been looking at for the room and it just happened to be there! This was definately meant to be!
This is a new movie that is coming out! Everytime I watch it, it makes me want to bawl! It looks like such an amazing movie!
Last but not least, my best friend in the whole world, Ashley, her little sister was in an accident and is in critical condition in the hospital up in Phoenix! Keep her, Callie, in your prayers because she needs them! Also, keep her family in your prayers! Thanks!

I just have to put my two cents in about Sarah Palin. The way the media is belittling her because of her 17 year old daughter being pregnant. I just read the most awesome quote and here it is:
"Remember that before you judge or poke fun at Sarah Palin. She's not the candidate whose daughter messed up. She's the candidate who didn't get rid of the mess."
Do we honestly believe that
People need to focus on her political views and issues. Lindsay Lohan made the most ignorant comment on her blog stating that she thinks Sarah Palin is wrong for telling everyone her daughter is pregnant and that Mrs. Palin should be focused on political issues. Hello...it's not Sarah Palin's fault that that is all the media cares about. Whether or not she came out and said any thing, people would have started noticing her daughters bump sooner or later? It was inevitable that this would be a top story and there was nothing Sarah could have done about it. Something like this should not matter in the least bit on whether or not she is fit to be VP. I think she is just the most amazing person and is exactly what our country needs.
She is such a "normal person" in the aspect that she deals with issues like all of us deal with. She has a down syndrome infant, yes, her teen daughter is pregnant, her husband works in the oil field, she has a son in
I could go on and on and I will, I just need to get up for the day and get some things done!
P.S. I just wanted to say thanks so much for all of your support that you have given me through this hard time for my family. I am happy to say that Nathan and I are going to work things out! It's going to be a long road to recovery but I know it is the right thing to do! I'm sorry for posting things so soon, but when you are at the end of your rope and feel completely empty, well, I didn't know what else to do! Some of you probably think I am completely insane, and well...if you ever go through anything like that, you will understand that it makes you insane! Thanks again for all your support and if you feel like keeping us in your prayers still, feel free! We would really appreciate it!
