The things I want to remember...

This morning the boys had quite the adventure set up...their pirates, knights and dragons were all sailing away to find some special crystals.

CPSIA Blog-In Day

As you check in with your favorite blogs today, you may find that there are several posts regarding the urgency to amend the CPSIA law that goes into effect on February 10th. I am still keeping positive that this will happen. Many folks have made some good suggestions as to how to make amendments that will punish the known offenders, but also save small businesses. If you have not already done so, I recommend checking out the following links to see how you can help:

Time Flies!!

Four years ago today, at 5:44 PM, Luka was born. When I look at him now I can't believe how fast the time has passed. He is growing up. Happy Birthday, my little 4 year-old!

Jedi Training at the Museum!

Need I say more?

I've been waiting for this day for 8 years!

The boys and I headed over to the Henry Ford Museum today to watch the inauguration of President Barack Obama on their projection screen. I simply don't have the words to explain the hope I felt as we watched. Luka was so excited, as were many of the young children present. He loved to clap and cheer every time he saw President Obama's face on the screen. Cas wasn't quite as enthusiastic, but I think it's because it was close to naptime. This morning Nathan and I were talking about just how cool it is that this is the first inauguration both boys will see, and hopefully Luka will remember. We wonder if it will affect the way they view the world. They will never know of a time when there had never before been an African American president. We enjoyed sharing the experience today with so many other people of different ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. Today is a good day in our country.

...And where oh where did Aretha Franklin find such an interesting hat???
