Contrary to popular Belief; I am not a "bah-humbug". And to prove it, Here are the pictures of our Christmas tree this year. Thank you Mom for the tree. Next year we will get a plastic one so I can disfigure it with matches! :) Just kidding!

This is our Christmas Bear, who sits on top of the tree and watches to see if the boys actual deserve presents this year. HONESTLY! If his eyes are blue, they were good. If they are black, they get coal. Hehehe..
I am the chef of the house. I rarely cook (mostly because I'm so multi-talented I rarely focus on more than 1 thing at a time :) These are my Peanut Butter Cup Ball Thingies.. Im' not quite sure why there are so many different names for these treats, but I must admit. I did a good job!
ps: As of this posting, half of these are already gone. Rebecca and Jamie went to bed with tummy ache's, Justin is in a sugar coma, and I just can't stop typing.

There is a God

"I know there is a God because in Rwanda I shook hands with the devil. I have seen him, I have smelled him and I have touched him. I know the devil exists, and therefore I know there is a God." - Romeo Dallaire, a senator in the Canadian parliament.
It doesn't surprise me how sheltered (or uninformed) we are as Americans about what is REALLY going on outside our beloved borders. But I am amazed at how much we either don't care, or don't WANT to care sometimes. I make it a habit to check out non-us websites for news concerning the US or UN, and on more than one occasion I am ashamed to that I actually live in the United States.

Read the article. I'm considering buying the book ("Shake Hands With The Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda") and reading that as well. This was 15 years ago, and I wonder just how much more is happening around us that we don't know or care to know about?

I thank God for the blessings he's poured out on me and my family; and I thank Him also for the trials he has withheld because I live in the US. I've heard it said that if God doesn't judge the United States for its wickedness, then he owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology. I believe that judgment is coming, and possibly in my lifetime. I pray for my children that they will know and understand God's will for their lives before it is too late.

Atheist vs. God

I find it ironic that people who claim there is no God would be so adamant that they cannot live in a world where others DO believe in God.

FRANKFORT, Kentucky - A group of atheists filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to remove part of a state anti-terrorism law that requires Kentucky's Office of Homeland Security to acknowledge it can't keep the state safe without God's help. - MSNBC
So, which is it? They don't believe in God, or they DO believe in God but they don't want His help?

I say: If the shoe fits.. check the bottom for dog doo.
