What are you thankful for at Thanksgiving?

This was the question that was asked at Kasey's preschool on Friday. Most of the kids said things like Mommy or Daddy. I tried to train Kasey to say Momma. We talked about it all the way over to school. So when they asked Kasey what he was thankful for, he said OBAMA. Now, I didn't coach him to say that. We asked him again because we weren't sure what he said and he again said OBAMA. We died laughing and the instructor said (who is a HUGE Republican, by the way), Kasey is thankful for our future President Obama. It was really funny.

Don't You Love a Parade?

Here is Kasey and his cousin Connor. Connor was in shorts as he was heading to basketball practice. He got pretty cold. (This is what I picked him up wearing, so it wasn't my fault.. :) )

The parade was an hour and a half and was really good. The kids loved getting all the candy. We took home a huge bag!

This is the float that Mark's Skills USA class did. I didn't get a good full picture of the entire train, but it was over 90 feet long, had an engine, 2 people cars, and a caboose in the back. They did a good job and won first place in the youth division and earned the Mayor's choice award.

This is Kasey's preschool's class float. I didn't want to ride on it with Kasey (I was lazy), but I thought they did a great job.

And, yes, it was hard to believe but they had this big MONSTER truck in the parade. It would take a ladder to get up in that silly thing. :)

So after the parade, I took Connor to basketball practice and then asked Kasey if he wanted to go to McDonald's or Grandma's. He said GRANDMA's. So we headed over there and mom made us grilled cheese sandwiches.

Obama Wins

Kasey loves to go vote with us. He likes to put the ballot in the machine and watch it go through. The election was a historic moment in American History. It is amazing that we live in a country where a black man can be elected President of the United States and I am sure that in the not so distant future, we will have a woman be President of the United States. We've come a long way, baby!

I am certainly glad the election is over though. I am tired of all the phone calls and the negative ads. I hope my family will start talking to me now. :) Just kidding, Grandpa Bob! I know you still love me.

Halloween & Superman

Here's Kasey at Halloween at Grandma's house. He had one of those lighted up necklaces on.

Playing around the pole at Grandpa Bob's.

This is at Grandpa Bob's house. Kasey took almost all of their candy. They didn't care though... But Daddy ate most of it.

All in all, Halloween was a pretty good night.
