Thank You Jason and Vote Lori

I have been on a search for several years now for a great and affordable aluminum-free deodorant. Four years ago, Vernon and I started looking at not only what we put into our body that is unnatural, but also what we put ON our body that is potentially hazardous to our health and the environment. For the sake of out budget and living within our means, we had to research what was worth the switch and why. We found that finding aluminum-free deodorant was of great importance for many reasons such as: its very high link to breast-cancer, the fact that the armpit is on of the bodies most effective ways of ridding itself of toxins and aluminum blocks its ability to do so and aluminum is allowed into the blood stream and can raise levels of estrogen and potentially attribute to Alzheimer's. What we found Ironic was that it was not hard to find male aluminum-free deodorant that was cost efficient and work well but EXTREMELY hard to find female AF deodorant. WHAT? That seemed odd to me. I found over the years, that if you didnt want to spend $20 on deodorant than it wasnt going to work very well. So after much searching and lots of asking around, I would like to thank J/A/S/O/N for his Tee-Tree Deodorant Stick. It is between $4 and $5 which is more than most spend on d.o. but it works and its not $20! Thank you Jason.

Titus on Voting

As I was leaving the polls today (which is no easy task with two little ones), Titus said, "Who'd you vote for mom?" So I pretended not to hear him because we were trying to get out the door where EVERYONE was standing in line...and I didn't want to start a riot. So like a smart four year old he said it louder only this time he added his vote. "Who'd you vote for Mom, Picasso?" I laughed and I am sure others that heard....a little comic relief to this seemingly stressful event. I replied, "No I didn't vote for Picasso." To which he responded, "Man, I would. He has great paintings."

hahahahaha...i wish it was that easy. I hope you had a great election day.

**Oh and if you haven't been reading Vernon's blog, he has been doing a series on things Titus has said...check it out!**

My Camera Died.

Boo... My camera died upon our arrival to the Reformation Day festivities. So this is all I got.
Justus' outfit was way cuter than this pic makes it out to be. I was squatting down to be at Titus' level and Vernon snapped the pic.
We were hoping to go to Dallas and trick-or-treat my cousins before we went to our churches Fall Festival, but Justus didn't feel so great so we didnt do much. We did Trick-or-Treat, Sarah and the Kitchen's. They both live in an apartment complex so they didnt have treats so Titus got a 100 calorie pack of cookies from Sarah and quarters from Justin. He was SOO excited about getting money by knocking on Justin's door. Getting quarters was a great end to a fun night.
