Fall decor, nicknames and knowledge

Fall decor in our dinning room

So, I need to clear up some confusion here on the blog. We call our children by their nicknames very often. I have made a conscious effort to refer to them only using their names on the blog. Occasionally it seems I have slipped (it is somewhat unnatural for me )and some were confused. So here is the list....

Olivia - prefers to be called Livie, so we usually call her Livie. There is often a Liv thrown in there!

Orren - we usually call him, Orry Now we sometimes refer to him as Master Orren as well. If you are in the El-Fallah household you would be calling him Baby Orren. (We are all actually guilty of it and my Mother says we are going to be calling him that when he is 18!) So if you read any of these names we are talking about the same two children!

I bloglifted this from Jen Dustbunny, I thought it was great.

Since Joe is traveling so much the timing is perfect! Hey, I wonder with Joe being in Ohio, could he vote for McCain there? hmmm?

So here is a brief run down of the week to come.
Monday - I am taking Livie to the Doctor she just can't seem to shake that cough after a couple of weeks. With her respiratory issues I think it is time to consult the Pediatrician.
Tuesday - ELECTION DAY...... VOTE..... VOTE .....VOTE! Meet Michelle to do some decorating and planning for events coming up. Then off to an election return party! I am taking the children because I want to expose them to the importance of the political process and get them involved young! ( wait until you see the pictures of Livie that I took when she went to work at the Shelby County Republican Headquarters with me. I want to post them tomorrow or Tuesday)
Wednesday- Friday - Shana and Grayson are coming to spend a few days. With both Hubbies out of town, no telling what trouble we will get into. I know we are going to the zoo and some other exciting stuff it will be lots of fun! Look for lots of pictures next week!
Joe gets home late Friday night! We will be so glad!

Hi Jessica,
You got your mama's flair for decorating! (You are so lucky!) I have been her friend for 30 years and it never rubbed off on me.
I enjoy your emails so much. It allows me to keep up with you and the children.
