I want to wish my Dad, also known around these parts as Tata, a very Happy 61st birthday today. He’s such an amazing dad, and he has blessed my life a million times over. I love you Dad!
Yesterday morning our new nephew, Cannon James Wade, made his appearance into our world. He weighed in at 7 lbs. 3 oz. and was 21 inches long with a head full of blond hair. Isn’t he adorable!!!
Congratulations Ben and Lacey!!! We can’t wait to meet your sweet little guy this weekend!
A few weeks ago a friend of mine from high school, Meredith Cooper of Cooperspective Photography, took some amazing pictures of our family at the Riverfront in downtown Montgomery. Meredith has two daughters that are almost the same ages as our boys, so she was super prepared for two kids running in opposite directions! Anderson refused to cooperate for 90% of the photo shoot, but Meredith persevered and got some great shots. We were so pleased with the pics, and I’ve never been happier with our Christmas card. Enjoy the pictures!
Have a great day!!
Devastated doesn’t come close to describing how I feel right now. I know that God is in control, but I am so fearful for the direction our country took last night.
We’ve re-elected a leader that knowingly left our troops to die in Benghazi after begging for help, and we ignored their requests. He’s never answered for this.
We’ve re-elected a leader that is in full support of partial birth abortion.
We’ve re-elected a leader that is an admitted socialist, and has never shown his original birth certificate for college transcripts, yet as a country we cried foul over tax records for a man that we deemed “too rich.”
We’ve re-elected a leader that has more Americans receiving entitlements than ever before in history.
We’ve re-elected a leader that’s answer to everything is to blame and punish rich people for their success.
We’ve re-elected a leader that lied to the American people in every debate, and never had to own up to the truth.
We’ve re-elected a man that has brought us $3+ gasoline, and he voted against a pipeline to allow for cheaper fuel for Americans.
We’ve re-elected a man that has spent millions of taxpayers dollars on lavish vacations and parties, while his constituents suffer under his policies.
We’ve re-elected a man that had the support of dictators like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro in his re-election bid. What does that tell you?
America has asked for 4 more years of failed policies and liberal ideology. As much as I love being an American, I would rather have a civil war over this and live the way my “half” of America wants to live. We’ve turned into a country of “what can I get” instead of “what can I do.” I’m heartbroken at the knowledge that America is now rewarding laziness instead of hard work and dedication. Where will we be in 4 years?
I have prayed for this country for years, and I will continue to do so. I don’t understand how anyone can support Obama, and I never will, but I pray that our country will be able to withstand the consequences of our decision, and that the America our founding fathers dreamed of is still standing in 4 years, and not brought to our knees in desperation.
I’m hosting a Winter Warmerland Scentsy Open House party this weekend to highlight Scentsy’s holiday catalog. There are so many cute warmers and amazing Fall/Winter scents, and I can’t wait for people to see how great this stuff is. Right now I have Autumn Sunset warming in my kitchen and it is the perfect cinnamon toned scent and I’m loving it! Here are a few of my favorite warmers. Aren’t they great!
If you are local, I would love for you to drop by my house on Saturday from 6-8 (email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for directions). I’m offering free shipping to orders delivered to me. If you don’t live in the area, you can browse online at amywade.scentsy.us and see everything. Let me know if you have any questions!
