I updated my blog. It should be easier to subscribe and makw comments. Someone besides Randy please comment and let me know if it's easier!
John and Kate Plus 8- Boycott?
Did anyone watch the season 5 premiere? It was gut wrenching and made me consider family roles and family structure. Am I old fashioned or is it more right for the man to be the head of the house and the wife to submit than vice versa? I think the vice versa option is total chaos and the state of the Gosselin home. Jon quit his IT analyst job to stay home with the kids while Kate travels for her book release. There is nothing wrong with women working per say, but men need to have a feeling of accomplishment in life. From my observation, Kate belittles Jon and 'wears the pants.' Jon is not a strong leader and thus Kate pushes him around. Jon should regain his position as head of the house and not allow Kate to speak rudely to him. Kate should respect her husband and take her role as helpmate.
The show has been hard to watch recently with Kate being so rude to her husband. I don't want to be like that. The show has actually been better when Kate is on the road and Jon d0es the interviews by himself. When Kate is around he can hardly get a word in edge wise. All this to say. God created an order for marriage, man as the head and wife as the counterpart. Get it straight people. I'm wondering if we start a boycott of the book and show if they will work on their marriage?

The 3 month baby shoot was okay. Addison didn't really cooperate as well as I had hoped but I think we got some good pictures!
I'm trying to post some pictures via a slideshow! The only drawback here is that it could be really long and you might not want to watch it all!
Today: I went to Wal-mart, tried to deal with insurance companies but made no progress, paid some bills, etc. Now I await the season finale of 24. It will be exciting but I predict that Jack finds a cure to his disease and that Kim gets kidnapped and Jack has to save her. Also, the president's daughter is probably going to get discovered for her dealings. Tony Almada will probably go scotch free then be killed by Jack. Those are my predictions. Any more thoughts? Will 24 be back for another season? Oh also, any one else excited for a new bacholrette?

Any thoughts? Do I really need to use my time on another social
networking tool? Hmmm.
Currently we are in Tyler at Michael Zeagler and Kelley Pattersons
wedding events. I hope it doesn't rain too much tomorrow b/c
everythings outside! BTW, mom and dad, y'all could so pull off having
weddings at your house and who couldn't use a little income these days.
The weddings tomorrow then off to Nach. for 3 month baby pics. You'd
think we really like to drive and Not relax on Tracys days off, well
you've thought wrong although we spend lots of time on the road and
happy to do it while we can! Good night!

shopping for a dress shirt, then headed to Best Buy to purchase a
Mothers Day gift and a surprise birthday present for me. You're
thinking, your birthday isn't til November. Yes you are correct, but
this year Tracy and I decided to start celebrating our 2nd birthdays.
It's the day we were re-born (John 3) and decided to follow Jesus. So
happy birthday to me Tracy bought me a camera and accessories! To top
off our day I had my first trip to Red Robin. Yum yum!
Today my parents arrived mid morning and we went to a local BBQ
restaraunt. Mom opened her mothers day gifts. Yea she got an iPod and
accessories. Tracy, Dad and I went for a brief walk to downtown
Bastrop where we got yummy snowcones! Tracy's mom and grandad arrived
just in time to grill out. We all had a great time down by the pool
eating burgers and hanging out. We topped off our day by eating ice
cream! It was a great day all for Addidons dedication tomorrow!

The picture to the Left is Easter Sunday! This is our baby girl, Addison Ann in her Easter dress bought by her Mimi (my mom)!
Today I went to church with Addison. It was her first time going to the nursery. The workers, my friend and neighor Vicki, were nice and said that she did great! It was nice not having to worry if she would cry during the sermon and I could actually listen. BUT my dilemma lies in this question. Is the church nursery just another way that we shove our kids on to other people so that we don't have to take care of them? I feel torn between responsibility and needing a break. The break was nice, but I also want to expose her to the church service and have her with us. This brings me to the thought of Children's church? I don't think there is anything in the Bible about separating our children from the adults. Again, are we segregating our children from adults, under the desguise of "we need a break?" Wasn't it my decision to to have a child and to take care of it? Any thoughts anyone? Involvement with our children vs. needing a break!
As far as the other happenings in my life: I wonder how Uncle Bob is doing and pray for Aunt Linda and E&E as they go through this.
2) waiting til tracy gets off work to see if he wants to go shooting with the Sweeney's.
3) watching the Mavs game! maybe an afternoon nap too!

Many have suggested that I create a blog inorder to keep friends and family updated on our life. The main purpose of the blog will be to post photos and give a play by play on how Addison is growing up. Some things will not be discussed here such as military happenings. We'll still have to pick up the phone and talk for those kind of updates! I'm about to head out the door to head to the Sweeney's. Cari has to go pick up her work bonus in person, so I'm the tag-a-long, accompaniment!
pictures and more to be posted tomorrow hopefully!
