An amazing country this is... America...

No matter what your political persuasion is... or if you're like me, and didn't really care for either candidate, I can't help but think that this is an amazing time in our country.

The first African American to be elected President of the United States inherits (from not only Republicans and Democrats, but "Main Street America" as well) two wars, a planet in peril and the worst financial crisis in a century.

Yet the changing of the guard goes smoothly. "If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where anything is possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive; who still questions the power of our democracy... this... is your answer."

God Bless the Civility of America

Goodbye old shoes

Goodbye Old Shoes
You’ve served me well
I’ve worn you out
As you can tell.

Hello New Shoes
It’s plain to see
You are the perfect
Shoes for me!
Yea for comfortable shoes!
I can walk in them, work in them, and my feet are still happy!

Stella is so glad it's November 5th.

Today while Abby was getting ready for work, Stella (age 2 years and 4 months) told her, "Mom, I wanna watch CARS. Not John McCain."
(Thanks Ky, for the adorable photo!)
