Jack picked up this magazine for me the other day, Taste of Home's Heartwarming Soups. I'm so excited. It looks like LOTS of really great soup recipes. I spied one, Cheeseburger Soup, which I'll try soon. I think it looks really good.
We had such a nice day yesterday. It was Sam's 16th birthday. They were out and about the evening before so we had just a nice at home day with fresh-baked cinnamon braid in the morning and sausage and gravy over biscuits for lunch. It was just a heartwarming time for me to watch my three kids just have so much fun together, laughing and making Sam's day special. They'd gotten him two CDs, the Newsboys greatest hits and Third Day's new one, Revelation. So they listened to those while they worked at putting together a Kitty Hawk model airplane. It was just sweet watching them all working together and having such a good time. We had planned to go out for supper but decided to stay in and Jack ran in and got some Chicken Alfredo from Pizza Hut. Was that ever good!!
Are you watching much election news? I haven't been around to any blogs in weeks now, so I don't know if homemaking bloggers are discussing this. I had mentioned last post how exciting I think it all is. But mostly now I just find it all dismaying. I watch my "fellow Americans" and I just feel sad and angry. I am strongly opposed to Barak Obama. I listened to children singing that song yesterday, that Obama is going to "change and rearrange" our country. Well, I won't be surprised if he gets elected. People will get what they want. I imagine I will feel for the next four years like some people have felt for the last eight. But, somehow, I think that many people, people who just don't get it now, will understand later why so many of us believe he is dangerous for our country.
