Princess Dinosaur???

So the big 5th Birthday came along for B. She wanted a PRINCESS Dinosaur....naturally, as all the world revolves around EVERYTHING Princess these days! I think I did pretty well with the whole "concept". It was just a plain chocolate cake with chocolate icing, covered in fondant...pink, of course!

Please don't ask me why it is sideways becuase it isn't saved sideways! :(

How much roofing gets done when the day looks like THIS?!?! Let me tell you....NONE! We had boxes of shingles on our roof for 4 weeks because the roofing company had a death right after they lugged the boxes up on to the roof. Then we finally get a team out there and they whip out half the roof in one day. Then....THIS! Apparently, shingles can't be nailed when the weather is below 40 degrees! I MIGHT get a completed roof before the Spring Thaw!!! Urgh!!! Sooooo close, but yet....!

Two weeks until Santa delivers Lady Shiloh. We are so excited and can't wait to see the looks on our childrens' faces. They have been asking for a LONG time "Mom, is daddy ready for a dog?" This one will knock them for a loop. Doesn't she just have the sweetest face???

Rock the Vote...fair and unbiased!

So, I am watching this story on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric tonight, about the Youth Vote (you can see it on the CBS Evening News homepage), and before Katie even gets into the "meat" of her story I notice that EVERY (which constitutes about 2-3 per candidate) clip of a campaigning candidate is of a Democrat. It bothered me ALOT....so much so, I actually took notice and didn't flip to another channel for something BETTER to watch! The first Republican not shown in a blurry group photo (of which there was only one of these even!) is of Nixon! Nixon, for god's sake!!! The ONLY GOP Candidate to get any "air time" was John McCain, in a clip of him on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (which aired in August, by the way because I watched it on its first run!)...a Political Satirist, for goodness sake! This only, after the whole Nixon coaxing young voters to the polls during Vietnam, and a blurry photo of George Bush in a background shot on a background TV monitor! I am not a party line voter, by any means, but I am certainly disappointed in this very unbalanced opportunity to persuade Young Voters towards the Democrat Vote. I guess it is apparently very obvious how "unbiased" (ha ha) the media truly is!
