as you all know, our room was painted this summer.  dull white to a lovely blue.  we got rid of the bunk bed clara and i shared, and now have two twin beds.  i changed my comforter by turning it upside down.  it used to be this sailor/nautical theme, now it’s white.  clara has a reversible comforter too, and its this lovely purply brown pattern now.  i have a hanging paper lantern, now clara has one too.  my dresser is between our beds, her dresser is on the opposite wall.  i have a lovely jewelry tree on my dresser.  function and beauty, right?  and the rug on the floor ($3 ikea) really defines the floor space.  except you can’t see it…  changes still to come: curtains, coat rack for clara, and bookshelf.

^ i’m loving how the balloons look, aren’t you?  this picture was rather hard to take… just because it was into the sun and i was afraid i was like burning out my sensor or something.


^ clara’s cake.  this is what results of cake decorating skills after 9 at night.  yes, 33 candles although she’s only 14.

we roasted hot dogs and had chili for dinner, and smores and cake and ice cream for dessert.


^ i’m not sure what she was reacting to… but it’s funny.


we all smell like smoke now.

abortion is horrible.

the baby is alive, already a person.  he can feel pain.

when you abort a baby, you kill a person.  abortion is murder.

how can people be so callous that they do this as a job?  okay, i’m going to go kill babies today.

it hurts to know that this happens.  that people don’t know, or don’t care.

that human life isn’t special enough to save it.

knowledge is good, but when we use that knowledge to do horrible things, is it good anymore?
