Abe for Pres?…and such!!

So I am not going to go on and on and mimic what positivity everyone has already expressed about the election. All I will say is GOBAMA!! For all the McCain supporters, give it a chance before you reveal how you feel our country is doomed. Actions speak louder than words…so let’s see people!!! In correalation with the National election, JD’s class held a Presidential wax museum if you will. The class got to all pick a US President or First Lady and prepare a speech about them. On Election day, they lined up in the library with a “push button” to activate their live speech. JD picked Abraham Lincoln as his President. Perfect!!! He even used the low voice to channel his inner Abe. I think the beard was a nice touch…thx dad!!

Here he is with his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln!!

They even went into their makeshift voting booths to choose their candidate. JD wouldn’t tell me who he voted for…I taught him well!!

Amongst all the election hype, it was also 58th week for George’s Battalion. It’s basically a week long of sports/competitions and ends with Organizational Day complete with BBQ and all. So I’m sure this goes without saying that George played in every dang event. I’m talking anything from Bowling to Track to Soccer to Basketball to Volleyball to Dodgeball to Football. He has no self-control when it comes to sports. Anyway, the only thing he couldn’t compete in was the Drill and Cermonies portion. (Mainly because he was in charge of this event). But it didn’t stop him from getting in on some of the action. Here he is giving the ‘go ahead’ to some Soldiers in his Company to start the cermonies…

And honing his soccer skills…

At the Org Day, they decided to put all the First Sergeants in the dunk tank for a little fundraising action. George was not all that thrilled, but he went in reluctantly…

JD dunked all but his dad…he knows where his loyalty lies. Another tidbit about JD, he has been growing his hair out since school has started. He wants to “be like a rockstar”. Not until it started raining and he began to sculpt his hair did I realize how far he’s coming to achieve that goal…

I also hosted my Pampered Chef party this week (I’m all about the stoneware and it’s been a long time). We played this Amazing Race game where the guests in two teams had to cook a recipe Nascar style. It was fricking hilarious. Nothing screams comedy like women racing to cook…

There’s my girls…

And the winners were…

Thanks to all of you that came.

One more thing, who doesn’t love a pair of cutie boys working the 3D glasses??

P.S. I love Fall!! Love ya…
