This morning is rushing by! Still, I have to get these things off my chest.
First, though my family and I, as a matter of our religious convictions, do not participate in politics, I must say that my whole family (well, Boy #4 — almost 5 years old — less so) has been very interested in the recent presidential election. As polls finally began to close, we had the Fox News map up on our computer and seven-year-old Boy #3 just could not get enough of it. He was constantly asking me, “Who’s winning? What does that mean? Is that good for Mr. McCain or Mr. Obama?” Really, I don’t recall being that excited or interested at his (approximate) age when it was Ford versus Carter.
It’s blurry, but here’s a picture of Boy #3 “working the chart”:
But that wasn’t the most exciting thing about election night. That honor goes to the visit we had from Mr. Most Hideous Potato in the World:
He was quite a hit at dinner time, especially after he donned his toupee once he noticed the paparazzi was out:
And in answer to your question: yes, I did just publish a picture of a potato.
(I hope you will forgive my levity, but I have a dentist appointment coming up this afternoon and I can use all the levity I can muster…)
