A few recent pics...

Since it's been awhile since I posted good pics, enjoy these few:

Avril found my makeup bag.

Xandri getting ready for bed... doesn't this face just kill you?

Avril after brushing her teeth. My girls have amazing grins.

Ready for church.

When we're "helping" we're happy...

This is the look Xandri's been doing lately. I had to take a lot of pictures to catch her doing this instead of looking at Avril doing it. I'm not entirely sure what it means- but I love it.

It's kind of a running joke in our family about how much Derek's mom loves butter. One of these days, I'm going to stick popsicle sticks in all her butter cubes so she can just eat them like popsicles. Anyway, turns out Avril is also a fan of butter... check out what I found not so long ago:

The Energy Crisis

Now, normally I don't do the whole political thing on my blog here, but I thought this was definitely worth noting (a big thanks to Alana for posting it on her blog).

So at present, what are our political candidates plans for the energy crisis?

McCain wants to invest a couple billion in science and technology developing new ways to harness energy.

Obama wants to put more air in our tires.
Ok, that's not entirely fair. He's got other ideas. Compared to McCain's $2 billion over 15 years, he proposes $150 billion over 10 years.

For a full article on each of their solutions, click here.

So, until those 10-15 years of billions of government spending, what do we do? This guy, Pickens, seems to know what he's talking about and has a very interesting plan. Check him out.
