McKay had her skit today as well as voting. They didn't tell the "elects" the results before school let out as they hadn't finished tallying. Later, I got a telephone call while she was at activity days and....she made it. I also called her best friend's mom and she was elected president. These two are inseparable. (They have their whole future planned out......or so they think.)
P.S. She doesn't know yet. I missed the first phone call and luckily the called my cell phone. I only told her I missed the phone call to the house and she is upset I didn't "run" for the phone. She doesn't get computer priveledges until her homework is done so we will see how long it takes her.

All for a sixth grade election..... I can't wait to see what Jr. High and High School brings.
It was a brillant idea! Elections got moved to next Tuesday. McKay needs to come up with a skit / speech and then the rest is up to the school. (Kirsten is holding her vote over McKay's head for "niceness". Sisters are so great!)

As Jacob went downstairs their was a crowd gathered around a 4" TV. Because we were inside the park, no TV's were in any of the hotels. The twin towers had been hit. He ran upstairs to explain the news. The rest of the day we went to the lounge (where there was one bigger TV) and watched the news. It was the first time I had been separated from McKay and I missed her a lot. I ran up quite the phone bill calling her everyday that week. We did enjoy the rest of our honeymoon but someday I would love to go back up there and really enjoy the beauty that we got distracted from.
I count my blessings all the time and I am glad to live in a free country!

Presents: Walkie Talkies, (with a 22 mile range, we tested it up to 3 miles today on a quick four wheeler ride. We went to our old house and clear up the hills on the dirt road to the top. Clear as if we were next to each other. We will have to do a farther test next time) a NERF gun with extra ammo, Webkinz, a new bag, a book, and money. Now all the girls want stuff that he got for Christmas.
Dinner: He chose french bread pizza (that he made himself), grapes and cold corn (cold veggies started in Texas at Betsy's house for us).He wanted to pick his cake from the store. I was game for anything. Although homemade cake is tastier, sometimes fast things work too!
Cruz is such a sweetheart. He loves working next to his dad and still playing with his sisters. He has a fear for bugs which we are gradually getting by this day by day as we work out by the grasshoppers and other insects.
P.S. Cruz is a lady's man. He held Hazel's hand everywhere in Texas. He also holds the girls' hands in primary. On our way to Texas, he informed me he had already kissed his friend. We had to have a "little" talk about that right then and there. I'm afraid what is going to happen when he gets older.
