Fun with Aunt Brittany on Tuesday

Today I came over to the Dean house really early. Brittany was still in her PJ's. But that's okay cause I was still in just my dipper. I was still trying to wake up, but daddy said that he had to take me over early. So I took my pink monkey with me. When I got there I was a little sad so dad fix me some cereal. I had Fruit Loops. Harry sat with me for a little bit so Brittany could get dress. Today she said that we could go to the park. I was really excited. The park is a lot of fun.

After Brittany drop Uncle John off at school we went to the park. The morning dew was still wet so some of the things at the park were wet. At first I went on the little kid slide. Something that was really easy to climb up on. I had fun stomping around and looking through the little window at aunt Brittany. I went down the slide. At first I wasn't to sure about it, but Brittany told me that it was okay. It was a lot of fun. When I got to the bottom of the slide there were some rocks on it. So of course what is a kid and rocks suppose to do. Play of course! Then I saw that there were rocks all around me so I had to play some more with the rocks. I loved picking them and letting them fall out of my hands. Don't worry mommy aunt Brittany made me wash my hands after we left the park.

After rock exploring I went and played on this rocking horse. Okay so it wasn't a horse it was a Tiger. I had fun going back and forth. I also rode a duck for a little bit. I think the rocks were really cool. Mommy can we get some rocks like this. They are a lot of fun to play with.

Brittany push me on the swing. I went on it twice. It was a lot of fun to feel the wind in my hair. After that some kids my sizes came to play at the park. Though aunt Brittany said that they were like 2 1/2 and 4. It was cool to see them play. They were boys of course. The older boy went down this big slide. Before they came aunt brittany and I went down it togather. After I saw him go down the big slide by himself. I knew I could do it too. I did. It was a lot of fun. I wanted to go again and again. Brittany didn't get a picture of me going down the big slide that okay though. she got lots of other cool pictures.

I didn't want to leave the park . But Brittany said that we had to go pick up John. I was sad a little. But brittany gave me a snack when we got in the car. That made me happy. After we go John we went and got Sonic. I got an Apple Juice Slush, grilled cheese and fries. I mainly drank my drink and ate my fries.

After lunch we watch a little of Sesame Street and it made me want to dance. And it was time to nap. And after nap time I went with grandma.

Whoa, its been a busy past two days... not much longer till mommy comes home. Hope you are having a great time. Love you!

Fun with Aunt Brittany on Monday

Hi, I am Felicity though people call me Lissy for short. Mommy took a trip on a big boat up in a place called New England and Canada. I don't know where that is but to me it is too far for me to be away from my mommy. But it's okay I know she will be back and she is having fun because she is with Jan, Oma, Mini Mamaw. Since all the girls were gone all but me and Aunt Brittany I got to hang out with her , and Uncle John and even Harry some!

On Monday I came over I looked at the puppies, read some books watch some kid shows on PBS, and they were really funny and made me dance a little. I went for walk in the stroller. The weather was really nice outside and it was good to get out and see the sunshine! But best of all I got to paint with water colors. I paint a lot of pictures. Aunt Brittany paint my hand and I made a hand print with my hand. It was pretty cool. The paint felt wet on my hands. I tried to get Brittany to paint my nails with the water colors but it didn’t really work that well. I told Aunt Brittany she should have taken a picture of me doing that but she didn’t. L She took pictures of me painting all by myself. I am sure am growing up to be a big girl!

Nap time came a long and I really didn’t want to go to sleep and I fell sleep holding my shoe. I guess Brittany thought it was funny because she took pictures of me sleeping with my shoe.

I had a good day with my aunt and later that day I went to The Pynes. I had fun there. They have big dog too! Well more in a bit. Love you all. Hurry home soon mommy I love you!

6 months!

Time sure does fly by the older you get. Yesterday made the day that John and I had been married 6 months. We are half way through our first year of marriage.

Last month was a rather trying month well the last few days mainly. We were involved in a car crash and $1700 a car is fixed, but we still with no AC. I am guessing that could have gone for a down payment somewhere to get a new car. But was are really trying to keep "Dno" as long as we can and not have to worry about making car payments so that we can move out in August 2011.

If you are wondering about the car wreck. It was John's fault. No one was hurt. And we only hit one other car.

Here's the 411. We were yeilding at green light getting ready to make a left hand turn. By the time we got in the middle of the interection I saw an on coming car. I didn't really have a chance to yell anything and we hit the Black Lincolns back axle on the left handside and knock part of the back bumper off the other guys car. Our cars bumper came off and the hood jamed the driver side door.

We were all okay. I was really shaken up. I know that it could have been a lot worst. I am so grateful that we are safe and nothing happen. But I know the Lord has something special that he needs us to do.

August was also a good month, I got to see my parents and we got chill at the beach. It was a lot of fun. I miss the beach.

As for what's happening with us now. I have a new calling a church. I have been called to the Relief Society Board. I am really excited, I know that it is going to be an experience like no other. I will say this I do miss my kiddos from Arkansas with their Wednesday night program. John is staying busy with school.

That's all for our little update.

When the world stop turning

September 11, a day that will never be forgotten. There are many days in our history books when it seems world for a moment in time stop turning. Days like Pearl Harbor, D-day and Independence Day just some days that have gone down in our history books and some even make it to calendars as days of remembrance.

To me it seems that just about every generation has dealt with some major world event that has changed them in someway.

For me it is 9/11. I can remember that day clear as a bell. I remember what I was doing , what radio station I was listening to and where I was. I even remember what I was doing before the events happen. I won't go into details as to what I was doing on that day, because that is in other 9/11 blogs of previous years.

I didn't know anyone who died or was in the buildings on that day. But now 9 years later I run into people who had family members or they knew someone who died on that day.

I remember the first day after 9/11 how on one of the local radio station, the personality said that we should all put white ribbons on are car antenna. My dad thought that was a bad idea because it would be as if were surrendering the fight. So we never did that. Come to think about it, I don't recall anyone doing that. We put a flag sticker on our car instead.

Nine years later a lot has changed. The war is over. Even though to me the fight still goes on because there is still so much that is going on. Some that we may not even know or understand.

War is an ugly thing. But one thing is for sure. Our colors don't run. The stand tall and remain true and faithful.

I am proud to be in American! I will never forget those that die for our country and those of 9/11.

So today on 9/11 the world keeps turning. It may have stopped for a moment that day, but we keep on going on today.

the Duggar Bunch

I typically try to post things here that are happening in John and I life (and before I was married I had put things that were happening in my life.) Which I still intend to do. But I want to get something off my chest. I know the internet is filled with peoples opinions, bias and thoughts of them. But when it comes to something I care about then its time for me to take a stand.

Over the last 3 years or so I have watch a show call, 19 kids and counting. (I think when it first aired it was 16 kids and counting). I like this show because the family is humble, they treat others with respect, they are very loving and they are normal Homeschoolers.

Now, before you bash on homeschooling. Let me say this, Homeschooling is not for everyone. It was something that I did and I am proud to call myself a Homeschooler. Public Education is not for everyone and just because you are Homeschooled doesnt mean that you live your life in a box or you have poor social skills. That is why there are numberous Homeschool groups were familys get togather and do activities all the way from dance, to boy and girl scouts, to art, to pinics and much, much more. The Duggar family goes and sees other Homeschoolers, they get out and do things. That is what makes a 'normal Homeschooler'. Now with that thought a side. Let's get back to the main point of my topic.

There is fanpage on facebook that is for fans of the Duggers show, 19 kids and counting, of which I am a fan of. Recently their have been what I call Dugger Smashers. Who speak neagtive of the Duggars and say mean things about them.

Such as, "haven't you ever heard of a condom" or that they really don't have 19 children, or most recently, "your body is not a clown car" comments that I find very offensive. Because for one no ones has the right to tell you what form of protection to use or if to use any and second no one has the right to tell someone how many kids to have or not to have.

For those who knew of the show in it's early years, the Duggars actually lived in a small house with 3 0r 4 bedrooms I think and one bath room. They started from humble beginnings and still are very humble and giving people.

There are enough shows about sex and violence on TV right now so what is wrong with good family TV.(like the Brady Bunch). I personally admire the Duggar family in all they do. The truely show us what family is about and that you can still live in the world and not of it.

Those kids are very lucky, they are well cared for and always have someone to go and talk to, play with and even learn from.

I just wish people would not post slander, state mean things or untrue things. Just because someone is different or has a different family value does not mean you have to post mean things. The purpose of a fan site is for fans to get togather, talk about the show or share thoughts about it(good ones).

I also understand that everyone has a right to their own opinion and freedom of speech here in America. And I am all for that and I support that. But there comes a point when certain things just should not be said and should just be kept to yourself , to your own blog or page.

I am proud to be a Duggar Fan. Their show makes me smile.

I am sorry if this post has offended anyone. But I had to get off of my chest.

Back to fall

Monticello Weevils, played their first game on Thrusday. It was kind of strange not being there and doing the pre-game activities like the walk of champions and cheering on the field. Those days were such much fun, even if it was hot. I loved it!

The beach was a lot of fun. There is a lot of picture on facebook. I know I said it I post some. It will just have to wait a tade bit longer.

John's started school back, taking a math class, a world lit, American history 1, and speech. He thinks speech is going to be his favorite class this semester.

Work is going okay for both of us.

It's crazy how fast summer has flown by and how now it is over. But I am gald because that means maybe it will start cooling off outside.

More from the Deans later!
