4 more days....

Americans... still believe in an America where anything's possible - they just don't think their leaders do. - Barack Obama

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. - Barack Obama

If you're walking down the right path and you're willing to keep walking, eventually you'll make progress. - Barack Obama

There is not a liberal America and a conservative America - there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and latino America and asian America - there's the United States of America. - Barack Obama

Why can't I just eat my waffle? - Barack Obama

Gray has never been the best sleeping child. I was so spoiled by Hunter who took a nap until he was 5 and went right to sleep when his head hit the pillow. Hunter even slept anytime he was in the car for more than 20 minutes. He still does.

I'm perplexed by the 5-year old that refuses to let go of the day. He's leaning over my shoulder right now (10pm) asking me who the first president was. Now he wants to know if George Washington was the fastest in the race.

I'm off to bed with Gray. Because I know I'll fall asleep if I lay down with him.

Good night!

Thought you PDXers would enjoy this shot by a Portland family with serious cabin fever during the snow storm. (The singing starts at 30 seconds.)
