Happy St. Patty's Day!


I've always been told that I had Irish blood in me from the "Powers" family, but when you dig the family origin, you get conflicting information. So, I guess it depends on who you talk to if the "Powers" family are from Ireland or England. For today, I would like to wish all of my "Powers" family members a very . . .

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Eat lots of corn beef and cabbage for good luck of the year. I love boiled cabbage, but sometimes I have to choke down the corn beef.

Katie Story
Katie is excited about getting a baby in the house. We will see how excited she'll be when she finds out that he's not leaving. For the past few days, she'll ask me if baby Colton is coming today. Her little face falls when I tell her probably not, then she'll say "maybe he'll come tomorrow". She's also put it upon herself to be the Quality Control when it comes to Colton's new toys and baby blankets. She has to "just looking at them" play and tote them around the house for awhile to make sure if they are acceptable. By the end of the day, she'll tell me "I better put baby Colton's toys up" and she'll put them right back where she found them. She fell in love with his tiny blue rattle puppy and told me that she would like one. Well, I knew she had a brown one that's a little bigger in her room some where. When I told her, she was bound and determined to find this brown puppy dog, especially when I told her it barks. Finally, we found the dog and now she totes him around and sleeps with him at night.

At times, she'll come up to me and rub my belly. She continues to ask me if the baby is feeling alright, which I think is so sweet. She's already being that big sister. She'll lay her head on my belly and talk to him every once in a while. I've got her "Big Sister" t-shirt washed and ready for her to wear at the hospital when he is born.

The other day when we were in the car driving Millard and Peggy by the hospital, Katie began laughing and just acting silly. I don't remember who said it, but they told Katie not to laugh so loud because she was waking up the baby. Now, she'll laugh real loud and act silly, then she'll stop and ask me if she woke up baby Colton. It's cute listening to Katie when she says Colton's name. She calls him "baby Colton" and she pronounces it so precise.

I thought maybe Sandy might like to see a picture of the quilt, she made, as a replacement in Katie's room. It works out perfectly because she has a lot of lavendar in her room now with her new bed set. Katie loves to show all of our visitors her room. She is so proud of it!

Glenn Beck
Okay, I've probably gone a little GB crazy. I'm a big fan and have tried to encourage him on his mission from Facebook. I was talking to Sandy yesterday about him because she likes him as well. I was telling her about a couple of books that Glenn recommends all Patriots to read. I could remember the one book, but not so much the other one. I checked out his website and got the name of the books again. Here they are:

I would be very interested in checking these books out, hopefully from the Library. If they are not available in libraries, they don't seem to be too expensive on Glenn's website. If you're interested in purchasing these books and more, you can find them here.
