Hi Everyone! I have been posting so much about PROP 8 that I forgot to write about the other stuff that just happend in my life as well. So much has happend this month!

We moved out of our apartment for safety reasons and I just didn't want my kids in the middle of a drug infested neighborhood. I also didn't want a white masked gang banging on our door in the middle of the night like they have been doing (scary!). So, we found a home! And the best part of it is that it's a HOME! I absolutely, positively, and all the 'elys' love this place! It's so clean, SAFE, quiet, and just beautiful! I've been working hard at unpacking and I have very little boxes left! I just have to do this....... *(sQuEals)*

Thank you Lord. Just for the record, God DOES take good care of his children :)

Oh! My mom finally got her OWN place too! She was led to this gorgeous Victorian house that was renting out rooms. We have lived together for 2 1/2 years for financial reasons and emotional support during the hardest times of our lives. Now she can enjoy her own place!

Ok, what else? Landon has been doing TERRIFIC at school and can write the alphabet! I am very proud of him! Brady is also signing so fast and he keeps picking up more signs! They are growing like weeeeeds, but CUTE weeds! Landon just had a birthday and he is FOUR years old! My goodness!!!

And as some of you may know.. I've been struggling with a restaurant addiction. I grew up in restaurants while everybody's mom cooked at home. My sister said that it's a feeling of being at home when we are at restaurants and I guess that's true. When I saw Landon start demanding to go to restaurants, I knew I didn't want to pass that down to my children.

*Sigh*, so I decided to cut it DOWN! Instead of uh.. every single day.. we'll only go out on Sundays after church. Once a week is fine for now. I've been cooking ever since I moved in this new home. In a way, it's a new beginning for many things for me. Landon looked at me the other night and said, "mom, I like your cooking. We don't need to go to restaurants." I just laughed. And I am actually enjoying cooking!! Is the sky falling? lol.

Ok, my rambling is all done. Thanks for listening! May your Autumn be glorious!

Love, Charlene

    I'm glad Landon is doing good in school. I think it's good that he is with hearing children during the day, but no one loves him like you do. ;O) What great blessings you have received Charlene. I'm so happy for you. What a neat blessing to have Landon choose you over McDonald's. lol Very cool!
