From the mouth of babes.....

comes singing/yelling. We had our primary program today and right before AnnaBelle left to go up to the seats, I told her to "sing loud." Little did I know that in her mind that meant "sing at the top of your lungs, completely off key and louder than the entire primary." It was pretty cute. The Sunbeams sang their own little song into the mic and AnnaBelle was the only one singing and she knew the words. Even if there was a part of a song that she wasn't sure about, she still sang oober loud while yelling gibberish. At one point, the entire ward turned to look at our red faces. We were proud. :)

That's just the way I feel....

Johnny has a song on his cd called "That's just the way I feel." It talks about views on family, country and even Nascar. I really like this song. This is just the way I feel......

I hate abortion. I have a problem with anyone who thinks it's okay. However, I do think that women should have the right to choose. If someone is raped and becomes pregnant, she didn't have a choice. If a woman's life is in danger, she has the right to defend herself. A woman who engages in un-protected sex or sex in any way, made her choice at conception. I guess I can be called pro-choice???

I also have very strong feelings about Proposition 8. Let's just pray that it works out how it should to protect marriage and the family. I don't have a problem with homosexuals. I do however have a problem with gay marriage.

I don't agree with socialism, affirmative action, government healthcare, and people wanting something from the government because they think they are owed something. I think government programs are good for people who really need them. I have no tolerance for people who use and abuse programs like that.

In the song it says "I'm not out to change the world or tell some other person how to think." This is how I feel. That's the beauty of living in this great nation, we all have a right to our own opinion.

At the end of the song it says "You shouldn't fly the flag to simply decorate your place, you don't show up to church on Sunday just to show your face, and even if we don't deserve it God still loves the human race with all His heart, that's just the way I feel."

Some may call me close minded. If clinging to my guns and religion means I am closed minded, then I welcome that statement. That's just the way I feel.


I was tagged by Cyd because my birthday lands on an even day.
Okay, here are the rules: Go to your pictures, go to your 6th folder, pull up your 6th picture and post it! Here is what I found:

Desi's 1st birthday and her digging into her cake. What a sweety!

Now I tag anyone who loves chocolate or cheesecake :)

Lake Powell here we come!

It's time for the Revill Family's annual Lake Powell Extravaganza!!! I know what you're thinking.....isn't it butt-freaking cold??? Yep.........and that's the best part! It's around 75 degrees in the middle of the day which is the best time to pull out the wakeboard and/or tube (and you have the WHOLE lake to yourself!) Other than that, you don't feel guilty about not getting in the water. You can just eat and sleep and eat and read a book and eat and sleep and go on the boat and then more eating and a little more sleeping, maybe throwing in a dumb gossip magazine and cross-word every once in a while. It's fantastic! We play lots and lots of games! Noah and I look forward to this trip every year. I love singing Halloween songs on the top of the houseboat and watching scary movies late at night! The candy is in adundance because of the holiday. This year is kind of a bummer because Cyd is so extremely pregnant and won't be joining us. Darn that cute little stinker inside of her! We will return next week!!! Hasta la Vista......Placido Domingo!

My quirks

I liked Suzie's post about her quirks. Here are a few of mine:

- My favorite music is hip hop/rap and I know every word to every song of Eminem's first album (not that it's something to be proud of.)

- My least favorite chore of all the chores is getting gas. I HATE IT!

- I could live on doughnuts and cake alone. No lie!

- I hate swimming.

- I would love to be a mother and baby nurse, a detective, or a special ed teacher.

- Baking is not my forte.

- I like the smell of cigarettes, coffee, and skunk (thanks to Pa.)

- Exercize is not part of my vocabulary.

- I get a "want to die because it hurts so bad" pain in my side while I am pregnant-hence the reason I am not.

- I pull on hair on myself and my family-hence the reason I have no eyelashes.

-I never forget movie and tv quotes. I have a top score in The Office quote game.

-I have a photographic memory and whenever I tell someone that, I usually say photogenic memory for some reason. Duh!

-I am allergic to everything!

-I don't like most chocolate.

-My most embarrasing moment was when I was trying out for SUU's show choir and they made me sing Rockin Robin and I said Roppin Roggin every time.

I'd like to hear your quirks now!

LDS Commercials

Yesterday as I watched conference, I decided that someday....when I write an LDS book or have an LDS cd, or star in an LDS film (which is totally inevitable right?) that I am going to have a commercial that says "buy your copy today....unless today is Sunday, in that case, buy your copy tomorrow." I noticed that every commercial told me to buy it today, and I was like "Uh, it's Sunday, and Deseret Book isn't open!" I think it'd be funny to say that. :)

John McCain

No....this is not a political post. I just wanted to tell you all that I have a crush on John McCain. The one from 30 years ago. He was HOT!
