Mommy who is this on the nickle
I'm not sure, I think it is President Jefferson (suprised myself when I looked it up on the internet and I was right!)
Oh, who is this man on the dime
I'm not sure, let me see it (as though the picture is going to help me) I think it is President Roosevelt (again suprising myself that I actually knew it)
No Mommy I think it is "John Palin"
I'm not sure who John Palin is but do you think this could this be a mixture of John McCain and Sara Palin's names? Because she know who was running for President and keeps asking when John McCain is going to be President, of course not understanding that he lost the election

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you feed a stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind to animals.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make my favorite cake for me and I learned that the little things can be the special things in life.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I heard you say a prayer and I knew there is a God I could always talk to and I learned to trust in God.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I learned that we all have to help take care of each other.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give of your time and money to help people who had nothing and I learned that those who have something should give to those who don't.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you take care of our house and everyone in it and I learned we have to take care of what we are given.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw how you handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't feel good and I learned that I would have to be responsible when I grow up.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come from your eyes and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it's all right to cry.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw that you cared and I wanted to be everything that I could be.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I learned most of life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked at you and wanted to say, "Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn't looking."
Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher or friend) influence the life of a child.
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.

Today I discovered that Autism Sunday the International Day of Prayer for Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome took place on Sunday 8th February 2009. His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI has invoked God’s blessings blessing on parents, carers, children and adults with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.
His Holiness the Pope will be praying for the Autism Community on Autism Sunday. Cathedrals, Churches and religious organisations are to pray for over 60 million people with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome around the world. All faith communities have been urged to do more for the Autism Community particularly during the deepening global recession.
Here is the song for Autism, ‘Open Every Door’ released as a film on YouTube. The song is sung by the Asian superstar Gresha Schuilling and written by singer/songwriter Nimal Mendis. ‘Open Every Door’ is released through Media Eye Music in London.
Churches and religious organisations around the world are using ‘Open Every Door’ as a point of reflection. It is a moving song about a child or young person with autism or Asperger’s Syndrome.

Kylie has her hands on the snowman that is supposed to be her. If you look close you can see a very small snowman next to her that is supposed to be Lacey. Mommy and Daddy are on the other side of her.
