Lots of excitement last night....MAJOR thunderstorms in the late afternoon yesterday. David came home and found us all playing cars in the boys room. He told us to come outside - our neighbor's (2 houses down) tree had fallen on a parked car in our court. Nobody was hurt, but lots of mess and craziness for a while after that (calling insurances, calling the city, etc, etc). We took a walk after dinner up to the mall that is behind our house to see where the roof had blown off in 2 places. We found the world's biggest puddle in the parking lot on our way home. The boys rode their bikes through it and played - it LITERALLY was up to their knees!! I was so mad I didn't have my camera. The boys thought it was the best! We got home and watched the American Idol finale and voted for David COOK about 15 times. I'm worried that Archuletta is going to win...sigh...and we're going to have to listen to ballads all night on tonight's results show if he does win. Ugh. Then watched the results show from Dancing with the Stars - I won't blow it in case someone DVR'd it, but it was fun! Love finale season!!! Today we played outside and watched the city's trucks come and chop up the tree and get most of it cleared out of the street. Lots of fun stuff. Thankful that we were fine throughout these storms. Josiah just came in a minute ago all excited and told me I HAD to come and see Jacob RIGHT NOW (sometimes that is a BAD thing). He was so excited to show me what a GREAT job his brother was doing coloring. How I love these boys and how much they LOVE each other!
