So, until I decide to bite the bullet and do what I have to do, it will be quiet here, because honestly nothing is coming to me at all. The nessessity of coping with these issues is all I can see in front of me right now. And I know this will lead to confrontation with possibly unpleasant results, hence my hesitation.
However, I cannot stand to live dishonestly so don't expect me to be quiet for too long!

V. is trying the cheese dip
We've got some good eaters in this group....
I think it was good for the J. & M. to share their post adoption experiences, now that the girls are home. It was good for me to see that THEY DO COME HOME!
The girls loved the mariachi! Especially V., she sang with them!
This wonderful couple has decided to adopt again!!!!!!!!!!!!
A really nice way to kick off the holiday season!

Whew! Blowing up this pool is hard work!!! Unless, of course you have an air pump!
And we do!
They've got it figured out now...
Hey, what's going on over there????
This is pretty fun!
Although I don't like water in my eyes,
Or my ears!
Overall though, a pretty good new toy!
The boys make it clear that it is their turn now!
That's OK, all that swimming makes us HUNGRY!
On a side note, after looking at this....
I have vowed to never complain about doing laundry again!!!

Every season under the sun has it's time. What is the RUSH? Will Thanksgiving become the forgotten holiday? Hope not, cause everyone should wrestle a turkey!

Don't forget, you can come back and vote once a day!
Please vote for CNN Hero Aaron Jackson of Planting Peace in the CNN Hero Final Vote! As you may already know, Aaron Jackson of Planting Peace recently won the Viewers' Choice nomination in the CNN Hero Semi-Finalist Round of this year's CNN Heroes online poll. He was chosen by the CNN viewers as a finalist because of the great work he has done, and continues to do, in the poverty stricken country of Haiti. To date, Aaron has opened four orphanages in Haiti, provided much needed food and medication to many other Haitian orphanages, and has supplied de-worming medications to over 1.5 million Haitians -- ridding them of the parasitic worms that steal so much of their nutritional intake. The winner of this year's CNN Heroes final vote will receive $20,000 toward their cause and be honored in a live global broadcast with Anderson Cooper on December 6, 2007. For Aaron, this money would allow him to supply another one million de-worming pills as well as provide a great opportunity to bring attention to the needs of the children of Haiti. For those of you who have not seen Aaron's hero segment which aired on CNN and CNN Headline News, you may view the video at www.cnn.com/ hero<http://www.cnn.com/hero> .To learn more about Aaron's foundation, Planting Peace, please visit his website at www.plantingpeace. org <http://www.plantingpeace.org/> .We are not only asking for your vote, but we are asking that each of you share Aaron's story with your family and friends and ask them to vote, too. And you can vote multiple times! Please cast your vote by logging onto www.cnn.com/ hero<http://www.cnn.com/hero> until November 26. The winner will be revealed during CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute on Thursday, December 6 at 9pm ET / 6pm PT.Thanks for your support!
