WILD APPLAUSE in Iowa!!!!!! This God-loving, pro-life, 2nd Amendment believing, fiscally conservative, small government supporting Mama from the Heartland loves your Tea Party!!

Tami said...

Oh this is GREAT!!!!!! Yea, my jaw hit the floor when I heard Madame Speaker so eloquently say (insert gag) that the people attending these tea parties are a bunch of rich, radical right-winged extremists....WHAT?????!!!!....It just shows the tremendous disconnect between the 'powers that be' in Washington DC and the people.

At our tea-party there was a kid wearing a ball and chain around his leg. I saw some really great signs.

Michelle said...

I am laughing so hard here. You go, Ohilda!! Your kids are so, SO adorable!!

He And Me + 3 said...

Those were great signs. I love Kai's face...so sweet!

Timmy's Girl said...

Praising God that we are set apart!! What a blessing it is to see you raising children that honor our Father in Heaven.

From one extreme Mom to another, keep up the brillian work, Sister.

YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh I love it!

And Ohilda I read your post below and I am praying those de-satless nights will multiply! Sending you big hugs and love...I need to email you soon...we are coming kinda close to you in a few weeks! Could it be...could it be...I might get to actually hug you in person??????? ;)

Holly said...

I love you Ohilda. You love the Lord whole-heartedly and follow His Word and make NO apologies for it.
Big smiles...what cute kids!!!

Gloria said...

i LOOOVE AJ's expression...did you tell him to do that?

Ohilda said...

No Gloria. I didn't tell him to make that face, that was just a typical AJ looking at the camera look.

Susan said...

THIS is the funniest thing I've read all year!!! WAY TO GO Ohilda. I'm going to pay the postage (ground trac WITH a signature) to send these photos to the White House!!! If you will do it, let me know and I'll foot the bill!!!!!! You need to make sure they are at least 8x10's...

Better yet.. I HAVE A brilliant idea! .. These need to be billboard size! Wonder if we can find some empty billboards across the country owned by a conservative business person that would like to fill them with something meaningful and eyecatching??!! Wouldn't that be a hoot!!!?

If nothing else, we need to get these into Rush L. or Sean's hands! These are priceless and sooo relevant!

Kim said...

You go, girl! Love it and love the signs. The favorite one I saw at our local tea party was "I'll keep my money, you keep your change". I have been a bit disconcerted hearing the reaction to the tea party participants. I've just decided that if the government wants to label my family as right wing extremists, so be it. I think the thing that really got me is that the Obama administration has decided to not use the word "terror" to describe Muslim extremists but then releases a report using the word "terror" to describe many different groups of conservative Americans Amazing!

Keisha said...

Ohilda... that is too funny!! My husband & I laughed and laughed!! Cute!

The Princess's Mommy said...

You are Awesome!!! Love this post!!!

Jill said...

I have to say that I love AJ's disapproving lips in his photo...I say the caption should be "TAKE THAT!!!"

Carol said...

I so agree.....

Carol

Aus said...

Had to stop back - in other news - did I say HOORAH!!
