"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Third's 19th Birthday!

To play catch up~Here is Third's 19th birthday cake. Why yes, the candles are rather large. Seems like at the last minute, I could not find the pack of candles. For the record, the white candles are Hanukkah candles and the red one is from the candle drawer-not really for birthday cakes~until this April 7th!
Second and Third
And yes that is a gumball machine!  Who doesn't need a gumball machine?
Not sure about the look, but we gave Third a waffle maker, syrup, pancake mix, as well as a bunch of micro meals. Single life and critical foods make for an edible birthday! 

And for the record I did find the candles~even before I cleaned up from the party!

Looks like a fun time.
I visited white sands with my grandparents when I was 9. My grandma emptied a pill bottle and filled it with sand. I just knew we would go to jail because there was a sign that said not to take any sand. Then we went to the base, my uncle was stationed at the same one your son is, picked him up, he changed clothes and we went to MExico, another illegal activity. I could not believe how bad my grandparents were. It was arond this time of year too because I had an easter basket from which the candy kept disapprearing from and "I" had no idea where it was going. Oh the memories.

Susan I will soon post it.

Jen-thank you!

Lol Debbie- I confess that my truck has more contraband sand than one would like! No matter how much one shakes off, or cleans the shoes, or dumps the sleds...sand ends up in the vehicles!! Your memory is cute and makes me smile-!
