2007: the year in which Sarah Palin first obtained a passport

It looks like Mummy will have to eat her words, seems a bedazzler might be in our future? One of the coaches approached me after Pipers gymnastics class to ask me if I would be interested placing Piper into the 'fast track' program when she turns four. I'm not too sure what that entails, but I fear a bedazzler and glitter might be in our future! I'll have to wait to see what this all means, but in the meantime, Miss P is really enjoying her weekly classes and we have no intention of stopping unless she stops enjoying herself. Let me ask you though, just when did my little baby turn into such a graceful little girl?
I guess this is taking my focus away from finding the right school situation for Piper, I'm still hitting roadblocks on getting 'early entrance' to Kindergarten next year. Looks like we might have to wait until 2010 before she will be admitted, until then, we will keep her in activities like gymnastics and Chinese School to keep her stimulated.

The world's cutest Community Organizer!

Kris might tell you that it's because she's holding one of the cutest little Obama lovers in Minnesota, but I think it's because she has found political salvation! (she may or may not endorse this message!) Today, without too much coercion, I got Kris in the car and over to Democratic Headquarters...my quest, and phase one of Operation 'hanging chads no more'. Kris actually cracked open her wallet in support of Obama!(oh yes she did!!!)..her financial support was greatly appreciated by the Democratic team, and pictures will follow of her new conviction!

of course she's qualified..that's a rifle on her shoulder..a pre-requisite for Republican VP's!
Today I was in our local Supermarket and came across this magazine...Holy Mother of God! Are we really serious people? Is this all you can come up with for a potential VP of the most powerful country on the PLANET? Isn't there someone else? Bueller? Bueller? Please don't tell me this gun waving broad from the nether-regions of the country(sorry Alaska, but you aren't exactly the heart of the country!) is the best and the brightest the Republican (guuch guuch..Gollum cough, please excuse me) Party has to offer? What is disturbing me more than anything is that anatomy is seeming to play a part in people choosing which ticket to vote for...hey, I'm all for equal opportunities, but seriously Condi Rice is a better option, and she's black AND wears a bra!(double whammy) C'mon people, this is scary scary scary...not even Batcat will be able to help us if these jokers get into office!
for your viewing pleasure some nice juicy twofaced spin from the Elephants(my hero John brings it!)
disclaimer: if you are a republican, turn away now...oops, I guess I should have put the disclaimer at the top.

In her package was also a copy of the Charlie & Lola magazine that isn't available here in the States, and guess what the magazine had a special on? BATCAT! Piper's favorite!!! We are so excited to make the finger puppets! Piper has requested 'Batcat' as her Halloween costume this year...wish me luck making that one! We also got some lovely lollies and I got an organic cotton shopping tote which I have already used and love!

Piper loves our neighbors...and enjoyed spending many hours with the girls this summer, we're lucky to have such lovely girls living across the cul de sac! A, B & D have always played a big part in Piper's life, and we cherish them dearly.
We saw your face for the very first time! Teresa from CCAI called in the early afternoon to let us know that she had our referral...the sweetest little face we could have imagined appeared on our computer screen, a tiny photo of you, dressed in red...freshly shaved hair, and pouting lips!
A few days later we got another two photos in the mail along with all your information...we couldnt believe how wild your hair was back then, just like Daddy's.
we feel so incredibly blessed and honored to be your parents.
How lucky we are to have you in our family Piper Lily Hannah!
