This year was the first year ever that I voted by mail-in ballot. Holy Cow...if you have never voted by mail-in ballot before, that is the way to go! I even went and dropped mine off at the polling place. It was so simple, no lines, just walk in and drop it in the box, (feel a proud tear coming on), and your done. Here's to change.

A road trip to Crestone Colorado

We went on a small road trip to the town of Crestone, Colorado to visit my mom.

My mom lives in a straw-bale house. The house's energy all comes from solar power.

This is the shower.

This is the center of the house, where the kitchen and family area is.

This house was built by a Lakota Indian. I loved all the details they added to each room.
The house has such a nice feel to it. It's so cool to see a house made from nature and upcycled materials.

Outside view.

Inside view. (If you notice one of these bottles still has it's cap on. That made
me giggle.)

A lesson in music

Jaden wanted to know who Yko Ono was so this is how we started our fun evening of dancing and singing around the living room.

Then from there we moved onto the Flamming lips.

Which then led to Abba, because Jaden is loving the movie Mamma Mia, and I wanted to show her were the songs came from.

Then we moved onto Madonna, because her "Hung up" song starts the same way as Abba's "Gimmie, Gimmie, Gimmie" song. Guess who Jaden wants to be for Halloween. She has been practicing the moves.

Oh and I threw in a little Elton John just for fun.

A reminder from my 6 year old

I am already registered to vote. So I thought I would pass on this little reminder to those of you who are not.
