I saw this on someones blog and thought that these were some interesting facts. It makes me so sad to think that there are people in this world that don't believe in God, especially in our country, despite all the negative things that are out there we have an amazing country!! I am proud to call myself a Christian and I am proud to be a part of this country! I HOPE our Nation continues to stay based on the belief of our God!!

DID YOU KNOW? As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the U.S Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view . it is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!

DID YOU KNOW? As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.

DID YOU KNOW? As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall, right above where the Supreme Court judges sit, a display of the Ten Commandments!

DID YOU KNOW? There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington , D.C.

DID YOU KNOW? James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our Constitution" made the following statement: "We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."

DID YOU KNOW? Patrick Henry, that patriot and Founding Father of our country said:"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but by Christians, not on religions but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ".

DID YOU KNOW? Every session of Congress begins with a prayer by a paid preacher, whose salary has been paid by the taxpayer since 1777.

DID YOU KNOW? Fifty-two of the 55 founders of the Constitution were members of the established orthodox churches in the colonies.

DID YOU KNOW? Thomas Jefferson worried that the Courts would overstep their authority and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law . an oligarchy the rule of few over many.

DID YOU KNOW? The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said: "Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers." How, then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done for 220 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional? Lets put it around the world and let the world see and remember what this great country was built on. Chamber , US House of Representatives I was asked to send this on if I agreed or delete if I didn't. Now it is your turn... It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, it is very hard to understand why there is such a mess about having the Ten Commandments on display or "In God We Trust" on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance.. Why don't we just tell the other 14% to Sit Down and SHUT UP!!!

If you agree, pass this on

My "CUTE" Boys!!

These little guys are the CRAZIEST and CUTEST little guys I know!! They are such good buddies!! They love to get up in the morning, eat a bowl of cereal and then sit down together and watch cartoons. I love that Brody likes to get right down with them and watch and play. They take such good care of him and are usually so sweet with him!!These next ones are just random pictures, note I did just get a new camera for Christmas and if you couldn't tell, really like to use it!! :)Look how grown up and handsome my Garrett is getting!!I love this one of Porter because it looks so much like Trevor and it captures his and Trevor's goofiness. They sure know how to make me smile!!Porter had just gotten up from a nap and wasn't too excited for me to be taking his pictures!!This is my little crazy Mason Rooni, this kid is so hilarious!! He is such a tease and trickster!! He loves to rile everybody up. I only have this picture because he was still asleep the day I was taking pictures of the other boys. First time Brody has been in the grass. He didn't seem to mind the grass, the funny looks are because it was so bright out!!

And my sweet little Brodster Bear!! This little man loves to watch a little t.v. and sit and play with his toys!! I know you are thinking man she takes a lot of pictures of this little man and no it is not because I love him more than the rest, he just can't get away from me yet, he has to sit there and take it!! The others will only humor me for so long! :)

I think it is so funny when these little babies think something is funny and laugh. He really thinks his brothers are the funniest things around!! In this picture he is smiling at a Baby Einstein video.

LOVE ~ LOVE~ LOVE~ LOVE ...... these Boys!!

BATTLESHIP TEXAS at San Jacinto State Historical Park

We took a tour of the Battleship Texas. It is the only surviving battleship to have fought in both world wars. She is maintained as a monument to the American Sailors who fought through two world wars in defense of liberty. At the time she was commissioned in 1914, Texas was lauded as the most powerful weapon in the world. Her 14 inch guns could dominate any other ship afloat. She was the first U.S. battleship to launch an aircraft. She fired over 19,000 rounds supporting Allied landings on Morocco, Normandy, Southern France, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa and shot down Japanese "Kamikaze" aircraft in World War II. We really enjoyed being able to tour her with our boys and learn more about the brave sailors who fought for our freedom, we are so lucky to be able to live in this amazing country and enjoy our freedom. Thank you to all the soldiers who risk their life's for this beautiful country!!KitchenStoreLaundry RoomToiletsMedical RoomBarbor ShopIt is amazing how many beds they cramed into so many small places!San Jacinto Monument, rising 570 feet above the battleground, stands as a memorial to the men who fought for Texas independence. Built to commemorate the centennial of the battle, it is the tallest masonary structure in the world. This is the veiw we had from the look out just under the star.Ater the tour of the Battleship and the monument we took our car on a ferry ride and got lunch and drove around looking at houses in Mid- Town Houston. Huge beatiful houses!!
