Happy Birthday Ryder!!

Ryder blowing the candles out on his cake.  He knew exactly what to do with his candles.  He did well and only needed a little help from his brother and sister to get the last candle out.

It's official!!! Ryder is potty trained and loves his big boy underwear.  We started underwear the week before his birthday and he just took to the potty like a pro.  He wakes up dry 6 out of 7 nights of the week and everyday from nap.. He has done awesome I am so impressed.  The scarf is a daily addition, or something similar to it, he loves to dress up and act goofy! He's a funny kid.

Ryder our baby is TWO....  TWO, how does this happen that these kids grow so fast!!!!! Today is his actual birthday, but we had a little family party Saturday(photos later).  He is TWO and has had some huge advances lately.  He moved into a big boy bed in December, (thanks to the breaking of the leg when he climbed out of his crib). He actually did really well when he first moved into the bed, we had a couple hard weeks afterwards, but for the most part he loved it and did great.  Now, he is wearing his big boy underwear.  He is very proud to be using the potty like a big boy and is doing an amazing job. He got some new Elmo underwear today and is very excited about those. :)
He is definitely a go-getter, he doesn't realize he is not as big as the other kids and wants to get right in there with them and do whatever they are doing.  He is a funny, spunky, social little boy and definitely keeps me on my toes,  I run after him quite frequently.  We love him dearly and look forward to the adventure's he will take us on this year.

So I saw this bumper sticker today,  that I thought was very interesting.  It said "Vote Scripturally Correct"..  Is this possible?  It brought to mind the book The Shack, which I recently read and think will re-read again.  
Anyhow these were my thoughts.  How to vote scripturally correct?  It seems that really you have to choose between the lesser of two evils well, maybe lesser of two evils is too harsh but it seems like most candidates have some "un-scripture" like behavior.  Is this scripturally correct?  I'd love to hear anyone's opinion on this matter.  I have been pondering all day how to vote "scripturally correct"(well, not really all day but I have thought about it off and on )

A new post finally!!

I have not posted in quite a little while 1. because I was having computer problems (ugh! but those days are hopefully over, I got a new computer, yippee!!!) 2. because my children keep getting sick and instead of getting it all at once, yes that would be hard to have three sick kids for a week, but I think that it would be better than three sick kids spread out over three weeks!!!  We've run out of children's tylenol twice, and I can't get the smell of vomit out of my nose!!!  I am ready to get out of my house and breath fresh air!!!
  To top it all off John will be going out of town this week and will be gone for 10 days!! If this bug runs the course like it has been, I should get this nasty,nasty bug as soon as he leaves!! (lovely)  
The End..........
   I've vented and feel better!! :)
