Our weekend in Birmingham

We left for Birmingham around 12:00 because Ashton was having a fall festival at his school that afternoon. We did not make it due to stops, rain and oh yeah a wreck (involving me). Long story short it was raining HARD, tried to stop, hydroplaned and crash... hit the car in front of me. The 5 cars behind me swerved and went into the median to avoid hitting me. I think we were lucky no injuries and minimal damage to the car( of course Carmel would not think so).We had to wait an hour and a half for the cops to show up.CRAZY and FRUSTRATING I know! Sad thing is we just changed our insurance deductible from $500 to $1000. That is going to hurt! Anyways back to our weekend. When we finally got there, 7 and half hours later, we missed all of the festival. The kids were bummed but had cake/ ice cream and were happy again. Saturday, we watched AU get the crap beat out of them, shopped and went to see Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. Sunday after church my sister wanted me to take a few pictures of Ashton. She had her house decorated for fall so it made for great pictures. I couldn't help but take a few of my kiddos too.

A funny story about Ella. My dad went in the bathroom to check on Ella. She had peed all over the floor. I thought she just did not make it in time. Come to find out she was trying to stand and pee like a boy. While giving her a bath, I explained that boys stand up to pee and girls sit down. She then tells me, "Well, when I get bigger and grow a wiener, I am going to stand like a boy."
Laney has been wanting to text anyone and everyone now that we have it.I had to set guidelines because one time Carmel texted me and said "Hey sexy!" Laney gets it and responds with "What?" Carmel sent back "What do you mean what?" I had to explain he just had a conversation with his daughter. Anyways.... I thought it would be good for her writing skills. Let me know if you think it is working. A text from Laney to my sister, "Can I poot on sum makeup" She spelled makeup right.... go figure.


  1. Those pictures are great. So pretty.

  2. Thank you! My sister had it decorated so nicly. I couldn't pass it up.

  3. Your kids are so funny and just beautiful. I'm so glad to hear that no one was injured in your car accident. It could have been so much worse.
