This little chick helped us decorate our trunk for our very first trunk or treat.
 This cold, sad look only lasted about as long as it took to take this picture.  She did so great even though her moma kept adding a new layer of clothing to her every fifteen seconds.
 The most beautiful Princess Leia ever. 
Oh do I love every memory we are making as a family of three.

12 days.

....till the election.  In 12 days we will find out who the next President of the United States is and a part of me does not want to get that involved and a part of me can not stop thinking about it.  I watched all the debates, I have seen plenty of news shows featuring the President and Romney, I have listened to any npr story talking about the race, and I have discussed it at home probably a little more than my husband would care to admit.  I am fully aware that no President has checked off everything on their to do list.  I would never want to be President.  I wonder why the Romney campaign did not want Brian Williams and the Rock Center crew to follow them behind the scenes for a few days, yet President Obama let them follow them as if it was nothing.  Open and honest, good and accepting, and plans for a better future for our country, us, and more importantly our children.

I hope that everyone gets out to vote.  Vote wisely, vote as if it matters.  Remember that no President could have made things so much better than where we are now because of the hole we started from.  Vote for tolerance, peace and women's health.  Vote for someone who knows how congress works and knows how to fight for the American people, how to work together with other countries and how to present a strong position for our country.
