Moving Out

I am still really behind on blogging but wanted to post some pics from our move. We have loved, loved being in Cahaba Heights so it was hard for me when we put our house on the market, even though one of our good friends, David Mackle, listed it for us. We had two contracts that fell through but fortunately the third time was the charm. JM brought up his mom for packing detail and she is a packing machine! As you can see, Judah was in charge of the laundry. I just dropped in to take pictures every so often.
I had forgotten how awful moving is - we have a lot of stuff and we ended up packing right up to the night before the new owners took possession. We completely filled up the largest Uhaul truck available and then had my dad's truck and trailer loaded down like Jed Clampett. Then the Uhaul got stuck in the mud in our front yard and when we got to SC the manse was not ready for us to move in... it was quite an adventure. But we finally got our stuff moved and we have been living in an apartment by Target (which is an entirely different story for another time!)

Clean out the freezer

I know everyone is expecting another Judah post and I promise we will get to that but I just wanted to show everyone how random our dinner is going to be tonight. JM is trying to clean out the fridge and freezer before we move and that has resulted in some strange combinations...

I wish I could have voted for Obama

(The all-Judah all-the-time network will pause for this brief--and surprisingly political--intermission.)

I found this blog post very informative and very disturbing. I've been bothered for some time now by the irony that the political party that prides itself in being "for" the poor and marginalized would also be so adamantly "for" the wholesale murder of thousands upon thousands of completely helpless babies. I've been trying to figure out in my mind how the same people that bend over backwards to save the environment and endangered species could not help but extend the same protection to unborn babies. Dr. Mohler's post helps connect some of these dots.

I have often wished that I could vote for certain candidates in the aforementioned party in good conscience. Unfortunately, it seems that party leadership decided long ago that "success at any cost" was more important than principle. I really do wish that I had been able to vote for America's first black president, but because of his party's calculated decision on this one issue, I simply could not.

Also, if you have not already, please look over at the right margin of our blog at the "Fight FOCA" box. Please consider this carefully and support it if you are so inclined. Obama has pledged his undying support to the pro-abortion "machine" in making it a top priority to undo much (if not all) of what has been done in the past to protect the unborn.

(This concludes the intermission. More pictures of the cutest little boy in the whole wide world will doubtless follow this post.)
