On a lighter note, lol, we took the kids to the Y for some dress-up fun. It's actually a really good time for them. For an hour and a half the kids got to play all kinds of games, ate some pizza and popcorn, had some apple cider, and to top it all off a parade inside the Y with different stops where the kids could get treats. Logan and cousin Christopher are old pros at this trick or treating stuff with Ciara following very close behind. She caught on pretty quick this time as she already had another night of experience at the Erie Zoo Boo last week (and yes, I forgot my camera or else you would have known about that already!)

You count the stars and You call them by name
The skies proclaim, God, You reign
Your glory shines
You teach the sun when to bring a new day
Creation sings, God, You reign
God, You reign
God, You reign
Forever and ever, God, You reign
You part the seas
You move the mountains with the words that you say
My song remains, God, You reign
You hold my life
You know my heart and You call me by name
I live to say, God, You reign

"This video provides proof positive that the American people have inquiring minds...and as the saying goes, 'Inquiring minds want to know.' Watch as filmmaker Molotov Mitchell hits the streets to ask random citizens, 'Do you believe Barack Obama was born in the United States?' This is the video clip that you, your family, friends, co-workers, and ALL Americans absolutely need to see!
Don't let Barack Obama and the 'mainstream' media silence you. Invite your friends to sign the petition and join you in demanding the truth from the so-called 'transparency' president."

Logan had a very good day today and is going to have a great time with her great-granny. To say that my mom does everything to its maximum possible completeness would be a huge understatement. She is a little obsessive compulsive about doing everything correct and as neat as possible so she's the perfect teacher, lol. No, seriously, in another life she really should've been a teacher, and she's very crafty. I'm sure she would have won all kinds of awards, the kids would've loved her, and everything would've been beautiful. As my niece McKayla is fond of saying about my mom, "Everything has to be perfect and laminated!" McKayla was a prior student of my mom's for one year. And for those of you who know her, you know it's true! lol You've witnessed it! She is also homeschooling my nephew Christopher. He's just starting kindergarten. She teaches him in the afternoons and Logan in the mornings. Whew! I dunno how she does it! I certainly couldn't.
Ciara and Logan right before we left to go to their Granny's houseLogan quite possibly looks a little tense about this preschool thing, lolBut even under pressure she can still strike a pose!The two yahoos back in the chair, lolGetting ready to goCiara even has her own backpack/stuffed puppy carrier with her baby doll insideAt this point Logan looks a little nervous about this preschool businessCan't beat that fake smile!Walking into school, Granny's house, with Ciara following along wanting so bad to go, too!Instead of walking down long hallways, Logan just had to walk through the garage, lolAnd into her classroom!You should have seen that desk before my dad completely re-did it, you wouldn't even know it was the same one! That's a Corian top on that desk left over from a countertop they just put in, lol.Teach me, Granny!Teacher and studentAfter about an hour, I sneaked a peak and caught the two of them in action

Ciara innocently sees the camera and automatically says, "Cheese!" She's so cute like that, lol When she realizes it's only 7:30 AM and I'm taking pictures of them eating breakfast, she turns to Logan and says, "Pictures while we're eating breakfast, is she always this crazy?" Logan replies while I snap a picture of her, "You really have no idea; do you?" Ciara then takes another bite and tries to distract me and throw me off by being gross and messy. And when she realizes I took a picture of her being messy, in frustration she says to me, "Seriously, mom, pictures of breakfast? Oh, c'mon!"
Logan always in top form knows the quickest way to make me stop taking pictures is to never let me get a nice one of her. She didn't disappoint me this morning!In fact, Logan is thinking she's about ready to throw Ciara's bowl of cereal at me 'cause she's just not that selfless at four to sacrifice her own bowl.
Finally, they both just decide to carry on and pretend I'm not there and hope it ends soon. Ciara takes one more stab at the gross and messy approach before giving up. Logan is now thoroughly disgusted and not afraid to show it. BTW, that huge red bump on Ciara's forehead, yeah, she did that right before sitting down to eat. She slipped on our hardwood floor chasing our dog Lulu, and bam, that floor just jumped right up and smacked her right on the forehead. It looks a lot worse than it actually was and by mid afternoon it was completely gone.
