Wow, what an observant little girl!

I don't know if it is a sign that we have been watching too much of the presidential election coverage or a sign that we watch too much tv in general, but this just cracks me up...

We are sitting in the living room waiting for dinner to be finished, watching the nightly news when a campaign ad for Sen. Obama comes on. Katherine looks at the tv and says, "Barrack Obama mommy, Barrack Obama." Hysterical. I don't know what this says about our tv watching habits, but hopefully it is a sign that she will be politically aware in an age when too many young people (and old, for that matter) feel like their vote couldn't possibly count so they don't bother engaging at all.

You may remember my early post about taking Katherine with me to vote. James and I both believe in engaging in the political process. With a dad who has a degree in political science and a mom who graduated from law school I can only hope that our kids will have an appreciation for the democratic process.

The family that convalesces together...

...is a sad, grumpy group! Well, we've all been sick with a pretty nasty head cold since late Thursday. Yuck! What a way to spend the holiday weekend. I'll spare you the gory details, but lets just say we spent a couple of days in bed, have watched a lot of movies, and used a TON of tissues.

At some point I'll catch up and post more photos. Right now I'm just waiting for my head to clear!
