Spring Time

Spring Time has finally arrived or at least I think so. It turned cold again Friday but it's supposed to get up into the 70's again this week so I assume that this was the last of our winter.

I try to take the kids out as much as possible since it's just been absolutely gorgeous and they all LOVE to be outdoors. Not only does it feel nice to be outside but there are also new things to be discovered such as grass, leaves, rocks etc. Some of it ends up in their mouth so mommy is constantly running from one kid to another pulling who knows what out of their mouths while Lucas is crying out for me so he can go high high high on the swing. People who pass by our house must think that I am running a daycare!

So here are a few pictures of one of our first outings.

Guardian Angel

This post has been long overdue but I just haven't found the energy to write about this. Not only was this a horrific experience but having to deal with the insurance company has been anything but fun.

So here we go.....On February 8th, 2010, my husband was involved in a bad car accident on his way home from work.

I was in the middle of feeding the babies when the phone rang so I couldn't get to it in time. I saw it was Onstar that called but they didn't leave a message so I didn't bother returning the call. A little while later I received a text message from my husband's phone that he had been involved in a car accident and was on his way to the hospital. Needless to say I was a bit freaked out since I had no other information as to his condition etc. I immediately called Onstar and they transferred me to the lady who actually spoke to my husband right after the accident. She was also the one who got me in touch with the local emergency operator who was able to tell me to which hospital he was brought to.

To make a long story short, my mother in law rushed over to watch the kids so I could go to the hospital to be with my husband. All I can say is that he had a Guardian Angel watching over him side since he got away with "only" bumps and bruises. Here are a couple of pictures of what our SUV looked like.

I might also add that we didn't find out a whole lot about the accident until we received a copy of the police report two weeks later. All my husband remembered was someone swerving into his lane and hitting him head on.
Come to find out the person who hit him was arrested after the accident since he was driving drunk having had a blood alcohol level of .261! To top it off he also did not have insurance.
So the past few weeks as my husband has been recovering physically and mentally from the accident I have been dealing with our insurance company which has been rather draining.
But no matter how difficult it has been we are so very thankful that he walked away in one piece.
