Lost Halloween Photo

We just found this photo of Taiyari's Halloween costume this year and realized we forgot to post it. He decided he wanted to be Grandpa Anderson for Halloween.

Marco, there are a handful of email hoaxes circulating which claim Barack is the Anti-Christ. Unfortunately, some people Ericka and I care deeply about have found some indicia of reliabilty to these hoaxes. If you are interested, here are a few of the ones we have received.

The Apostle John prophesied the Anti-Christ would have characteristics very similar to Barack.

Nostradamus prophesied Barack would destroy the Country after being elected through the power of Satan.

Ironically, this one happens to be true. Nonetheless, it does nothing to establish Barack is the Anti-Christ. The winning lottery numbers of Barack's home state the day after the election were 666.

I am so tired of people trying to convince me that Barack is the Anti-Christ. Please, please, please, do some research, which at the very least should be to read the Book of Revelation, before you assume that some illegitimate email prophecy, that does not exist in any book of scripture, is truth. By doing so you will avoid the embarassment of telling another individual, "the Apostle John wrote in the Book of Revelation that the Anti-Christ will be a man in his forties of Muslim descent who will decieve the nations with persuasive language and a massive Christ-like appeal that the people will flock to him as he promises false hope and world peace until when he is in power he will ultimately destroy everything," when in fact the Apostle John never wrote any such thing.

In fact the Apostle John never even used the word Anti-Christ when he wrote the Book of Revelation. The term Anti-Christ is only used six times in the LDS canon of scripture. A thorough reading of those six verses establish that in order for a person to qualify as an Anti-Christ they MUST preach that Jesus is not the Christ. Maybe I missed it, but I don't remember hearing Barack's "There is no Christ" stump speech.

Disagree with Barack's policies, disagree with those who support him, even take it as far as saying you think it is a mistake in judgment for someone to support Barack. But do not tell me that because I believe Barack Obama is better equipped to lead this country than John McCain that I have given my allegiance to an Anti-Christ. If you do, you also tell me, that I have denied my Savior, the True and Living Chirst. To that I take great offense, for I have NOT, nor will I in the future deny that Jesus is the Christ. Do not confuse your disagreements with the President of the United States with my faith and relationship with my Savior and Redeemer.

Día de los Muertos

Pues este fin de semana celebramos a escala el Día de los Muertos. Pusimos nuestra ofrenda en honor a mi abuelo Roque, mi abuelita Juanita, Grandpa Anderson y Grandma Roundy.
Esta muy chiquita la ofrenda y la verdad fue difícil encontrar todos los elementos de la ofrenda pero lo intentamos, los niños ayudaron a poner la fruta, las hojaldras, el pan y los tamales en la mesa y a pegar "el papel picado" que segun yo hize. Nos faltaron las calaveritas y las flores de a deveras. En ocasiones como estas es cuando me gustaria vivir mas cerca de la frontera para poder adquirir todo lo que necesito para ocasiones como esta. Ni modo. Pero si quieren ver una buena foto de una ofrenda bien tradicional aqui esta un ejemplo. Tambien una link para que puedan leer el significado de las ofrendas y los elementos de una ofrenda.

Christmas Music

Unfortunately, I have not found any lists of good Thanksgiving music. Therefore, you all get the wonderful opportunity to listen to Christmas music for the next two, maybe three, months while you visit our blog. If you have any favorites you would like to add let us know. If not, then please enjoy listening to our favorite music during our favorite time of year.
