America's Re-Tea Party

Thanks Wade for reminding me about these events going on around the country. There is just so much to write about, plus running role of mom & maid around here, I've forgotten to look into this and report it.

If you don't know what I'm talking about is that American's are rallying around the country at different dates and times in order to Re-declare Our Independence. From what I understand, Newt Gingrich has joined this cause. Below is a small piece from the site I found:

In 1994, Newt Gingrich, along with several other prominent Republicans introduced their “Contract with America” after taking a majority control of Congress for the first time in 40 years. The Contract called for a renewed faith in Washington D.C., namely in the Republican Party, asking for Americans across the country to put their faith in partisan politicians.

Several big cities in Alabama will be having their Tea Parties on April 15th at different times. What's great about this website is you can select which state you're wanting to attend this PEACEFUL Tea Party.

Natasha Richardson
How tragic to hear this news. After listening to the news updates yesterday, this accident sounded so simple that it could have happened to even me. The people that were with Natasha when it happened simply said that she just bumped her head. She was up and laughing at herself for being so clumsy. They reported later that day, she complained of a little headache and that's when they decided to take her to the hospital to be checked out. Some doctors (not related in her case) said she could of had some brain swelling or bleeding on the brain, which resulted in this tragic event. As you may know, she's been on life support. Her family made that terrible and tough decision to take the support off of her last night. Ahh, so sad! I feel for her family and they will be in my prayers.

Spring Pictures
Peggy has invited Katie and myself out to her house today. She wants Katie to help her decorate for Easter. I think Katie would have a blast doing so. I also thought it would be a great opportunity to take a few Spring/Easter photos of Katie in her new Easter dress. When I asked Katie last night about having her picture made today, she was so excited. She wanted to know if she had her Easter dress yet and if the Easter bunny would be there to have her picture taken with him. Ha Ha! I told her that it wasn't quite that close to Easter time, but it was coming very soon. I hope I'll be able to get a few good shots because there are days, like the other day, where all she wants to do is look off or dance every where. Is she one of the true flower children? Off in la-la land half the time.
By the way, today is the first official day of Spring. So . . .
Happy Spring!
