Sorry to leave you hanging--I've been updating Facebook and not the blog. So, the story. I was driving with my boys to town in our Suburban and not far from home a teenager turned left in front of us. He was paying attention to some pedestrians that were going to cross the street he was turning onto and didn't double check before he went in front of us. We hit his passenger front and our driver front and that sent us into a very deep ditch on the side of the road. We slid down that for a bit before stopping. Reese had the presence of mind to roll down his window once the dust from the airbags had settled and we all crawled out his window onto the street. The driver's side was at street level the ditch was so deep. We are all okay--the kids seem fine and my neck is very tight and sore. We are also extremely lucky and thankful it turned out the way it did. The Suburban is most likely going to be totaled and so I would like another Suburban, Excursion, or maybe a Hummer???

Where have we been???

Having a little trouble keeping up with everything! So, here are a few pictures--mostly my adorable nephew Clayton from when we watched the boys for an evening...
We are all doing fine, just busy with school, dentist appointments, and life!

When my dad is here I always have a list of projects... This time was no different. We painted the legs and apron on our kitchen table and re-did a little end/magazine table. Reese wanted to help, so he helped sand and then paint--he was quite excited and waited patiently or as patiently as a 5 year old can.
Thanks neighbor JoAnn for the idea and the paint!
My next project involves my father-in-law and it is a door turned into a coffee table...
