Spring Has Sprung... And so has Springtime Weather!

Oh my goodness! SPRING IS HERE! Caleb is so excited - he just keeps talking about the plants, the flowers, the caterpillars... Thank you, Mrs. Thompson!! We've been blessed with some beautiful weather! We've enjoyed playing outside with sidewalk chalk and bubbles, playing ball, going for evening walks, going to the park, flying kites - you name it. It's been awesome!

I guess after going back and searching for pics to post about our Springtime fun, I no longer feel so "bad" for being tardy in posting a new blog! *Big Grin* We've been doing what we're supposed to be doing - enjoying one another and having fun as a family. Disclaimer: the two pics of Caleb were actually taken by Granny who took the boys to the park. She just had better pics than I did! ;oD

Now for the REAL Springtime weather... we were rudely stirred from slumber at midnight to the terrifying sound of tornado sirens blaring away!! I know, I know... they don't mean a big, fat twister complete with the Wicked Witch of the West is going to suck us up and send us to Oz, but they still scare the h-e-double hockey sticks outta me! We got Caleb as cozy as possible in our "safe room" (aka laundry room) while Bill and I paced between the TV, on the laptop, and the patio door. Yes - we let Connor sleep through it all... I figure it's easy to snatch a baby up out of a crib, but not so easy to do the same to a 43 pound pre-schooler! We got some good-sized hail, and completely lost our "for sale" sign outside. (I still say that's God's way of telling us it's time for a new realtor, but that's an entirely different blog!) Luckily, the storm passed rather quickly and we were able to go back to sleep. Still had me shook up for a while. Nothin' scarier than West Texas weather sometimes...

We did the same thing last night except we let BOTH our kids sleep through it. We had the bathroom all ready and were standing in the hall watching the TV, ready to snatch them up at a moment's notice. I'm amazed neither of them even stirred during the storm!

Thanks for the pictures!
