The Hogan clan is invading Milner's little voting area. I wonder if we'll have any long lines where we wait for hours?

A Different Commercial Note about Voting

'Twas the night before elections
And all through the town
Tempers were flaring
Emotions all up and down!

I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap
Had cut off the TV
Tired of political crap.

When all of a sudden
There arose such a noise
I peered out of my window
Saw Obama and his boys

They had come for my wallet
They wanted my pay
To give to the others
Who had not worked a day!

He snatched up my money
And quick as a wink
Jumped back on his bandwagon
As I gagged from the stink

He then rallied his henchmen
Who were pulling his cart
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart!

' On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers!
On Acorn, On Pelosi'
He screamed at the pairs!

They took off for his cause
And as he flew out of sight
I heard him laugh at the nation
Who wouldn't stand up and fight!

So I leave you to think
On this one final note-

I thought for sure he would hate being bundled up in this suit, but he loved it!

I know that I had given up on Halloween. I still feel uneasy about this holiday and something seems to always go wrong when we take the children to do any festivities, but Ali demanded that we celebrate. Even after we discussed the ER visits, she wanted to go with her friends. So here is Aiden's little costume. Yes, I did wait until there was a limited selection. Oh boy, Ali is going as a UGA fan. She wants me to fix her make-up and hair. In her hair, she wants me to use pipe cleaners to make it stand up. I'm so tired!!!!!! So is Erik!!!!!
This is what is on the bottom of his costume's feet.

Fall Cuteness!

I saw how cute one of my blogger friend's pictures turned out, so I took Aiden outside today in his outfit that Gme got for him. He's growing so quickly that it won't fit much longer. This is one of Daddy's favorite outfits!

He loves his fingers, but will NOT take a pacifier.

That scratch happened this morning when he got mad!

This is the extent of our tummy time. He stayed this way for about the length of time it took me to snap this photo.

We enjoyed the weather and had a wonderful time outside. I wish I had taken a photo of the crazy squirrel that was running around very close to us.

Learning Something New

When you're not expecting it, they learn something new. He loves to bicycle his legs all of the time! Well, I placed him in his crib to put away his clothes. When I do this, I turn on his musical aquarium. A moment later, the music stopped. I thought it needed new batteries. Nope, he had turned it off with his feet. He loves to do it now.

I had to take away mauch of his bedding because it is too fluffy and may play a factor in SIDS. I know, I'm a worry wart, but I'd rather be safe than sorry!

He looks so very different and much bigger than when he was born. It seems that time is swiftly moving and he's only a little over 3 months old!
Erik's little brother came by for a visit and stayed the weekend. All three children (pre-teens whatever!) had fun. I was getting a little worried that I had not heard from them and they were outside with their red riders. Well they were building this "fort" and having a blast!

A Happy Five

We have been so extremely happy over the past five years, even with the ups and downs! It's been five years since we said "I will" and I would say it again!

I still love the way you look and listen to me! Happy Anniversary!

It's over!

Today is finally nearing it's end and I'm glad. It was tough at work! Lucky for me, I got to come home to a hot dinner and a family who loves me. I guess I'm the winner!!!:) I love my family!
Aiden sits in his chair whenever we eat at the dinner table. Now, he watches us eat and is very interested! I still don't know what that tongue is doing constantly hanging out ;p

Ali and Aiden are relaxing during our fall break. It's over now and we didn't do much. We went to the fair. Aiden and mommy stayed home. We also went to a fish fry where some of the people didn't know I was even pregnant. It was priceless to see their expressions! I'm still laughing! During the fish fry, I only got to hold Aiden for a total of 25-30 minutes. We stayed 2 1/2 hours!

Simple happenings...

Since we couldn't go to Gme's and Gpa's this week, I thought I'd post a few pictures of simple things that we love!
Here is the time after our evening bath. We love our bath and drying off! We play, sing, get a massage and steal mommy's and daddy's hearts!

Here is our daily dose of flying in the air! Daddy and mommy have so much fun! Even Aiden seems to enjoy this! This is my favorite picture this week!! I love how Aiden's eyes are sometimes so big and blue. It melts me!

Wider than the sky...

Thoughts about our daily lives.
