Why did the chicken cross the road?

BARACK OBAMA: The chicken crossed the road because
it was time for a change! The chicken wanted change!

JOHN MC CAIN: My friends, that chicken crossed the
road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation
and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the

SARAH PALIN: Because by golly, I was gonna shoot
his sorry liberal butt for blocking my view of Russia!

HILLARY CLINTON: When I was First Lady, I
personally helped that little chicken to cross the road.
This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure right
from Day One that every chicken in this country gets the
chance it deserves to cross the road. But then, this really
isn't about me.

GEORGE W. BUSH: We don't really care why the
chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the
chicken is on our side of the road, or not. The chicken is
either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground

DICK CHENEY: Where's my gun?

COLIN POWELL: Now to the left of the screen, you
can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing
the road.

BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with that
chicken. What is your definition of crossing?

AL GORE: I invented the chicken.

JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken
cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross,
and I was misled about the chicken's
intentions. I am not for it now, and will remain against it.

AL SHARPTON: Why are all the chickens white? We
need some black chickens.

DR. PHIL: The problem we have here is that this
chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the
problem on this side of the road before it goes after the
problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is
help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on
his current problems before adding new problems.

OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is
having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so
bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his
mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm
going to give this chicken a car so that he c an just drive
across the road and not live his life like the rest of the

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN: We have reason to believe
here is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have
access to the other side of the road.

NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because
he's guilty! You can see it in his eyes and the way he

PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent,
hardworking American.

MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which
way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the
Farmers Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a
certain level. No little bird gave me any insider

DR SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he
cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but
why it crossed I've not been told.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die in the rain, alone.

JERRY FALWELL: Because the chicken was gay!
Can't you people see the plain truth? That's why
they call it the other side. Yes, my friends, that chicken
is gay. And if you eat that chicken, you will become gay,
too. I say we boycott all chickens until we sort out this
abomination that the liberal media whitewashes with
seemingly harmless phrases like the other side. That
chicken should not be crossing the road. It's as plain
and as simple as that.

GRANDPA: In my day we didn't ask why the
chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken
crossed the road, and that was good enough.

BARBARA WALTERS: Isn't that interesting? In a
few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for
the first time, the heart warming story of how it
experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to
accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross
the road.

JOHN LENNON: Imagine all the chickens in the world
crossing roads together, in peace.

BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken2008,
which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file
your important documents, and balance your checkbook.
Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken2008. This
new platform is much more stable and will never crash.

ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the
road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

COLONEL SANDERS: Did I miss one?

Did I Expect Angels? book review

Did I Expect Angels? Did I Expect Angels? by Kathryn Maughan

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I loved the new insight at looking at things from a different angle. I wish that more emphasis/detail would have been placed on certain parts, but it wasn't imperative. This book was a little difficult to "get into" in the beginning because of the Spanish & broken English dialogue, but this did also add to the authenticity of the characters. I loved the story and it brought me to tears. Overall a great book that I would recommend.

Bribing the tooth fairy.

Last night, Trenton lost his third tooth. He told us he wanted to write a letter to the tooth fairy. Now, please keep in mind, Trent has been given $1 dollar by the tooth fairy for each previous tooth he has lost. His letter went as follows: "Dear tooth fairy. Can you please get me two dollars this time and here's a treat." He placed this into a zip lock bag with his tooth and a piece of candy from Halloween and tucked them under his pillow.

This morning, when he checked under his pillow, he found the bag, now with the tooth, candy, & his letter gone, replaced by a new card. I have scanned the inside of the card for you all to see. Pretty clever tooth fairy, huh?? And the best part...he was so excited to tell us that he has 12 molars!

We were forced into a little rest and relaxation at our house today. Trenton stayed home from school, feeling quite miserable. He had a nasty cough, a decent fever, & a massive headache. Poor kid! Tyler also enjoyed the down time...who knew exercise equipment could turn into relaxation equipment.

Halloween '08

Figured I should put some Halloween pics on here. The night before Halloween, we carved pumpkins. The boys described to Daddy how they wanted their pumpkins to look & he drew the pictures for them to carve.

On Halloween night, we went trunk-or-treating at the church. Trenton was a police detective & Tyler was batman. Still not sure how he saw through his mask! Mike took his balloons to make balloon animals for the kids there. Who knew that would be such a hit! We were the last ones out of the parking lot after an hour & a half. Next year, we're taking numbers for everyone in line.
