This past weekend has been nuts to say the least. Last Thursday morning, the guys on Tim's crew decided to take Thursday and Friday off due to the rain. So, Tim working in Kansas and me still being in Colorado, he headed home. Well, he was in the Bug on the freeway going on an overpass and hit some ice. The bug went completely sideways and hit the guard rail. Thank goodness for air bags and the fact that the Bug did not roll, which Tim thought for sure it would, had it not hit the guard rail. We are still waiting to hear from insurance but we are pretty positive that its totalled. I did not have my phone on me that morning, it was charging in our truck (can't find my wall charger). Anyway, he couldn't get a hold of me so my mother-in-law called the office of the place we were staying and had them come tell me to call Tim. There was a loud knock on the door and when I opened it, the man said, "Tim has been in an accident and you need to call him right away." My heart was in my stomache! My first thought was that something happened to him at work. I called him in tears and he was very calm and told me he needed me to go get him. Thank goodness he was only 50 miles away. I am so grateful that Tim walked away unharmed. We will truly miss that bug. It was the best car I've ever had and so thankful it was paid off.

Before we took our 5th wheel to Kansas, we had an opportunity to get back together with everyone that was in our Prenatal class. It was really cool to see all the girls not prego and actually holding the babies. I remember wondering during our class what their babies will look like. Everyone was extremely nice. It was fun to compare baby/birthing stories and see what milestones our babies have reached already. There was one particular baby (Ethan) that took a liking to Aubriana. We had them on the blanket next to eachother and he kept cooing at her and smiling. I think she got her first taste of what flirting is all about. It was too cute.

Ok, now we live in Kansas. The move went really well. Our first time taking our house on a drive. Its nice that we are 3 1/2 hours out of Denver. Its not a horrible drive, just boring. Where we are staying is a lot nicer of a place then in Denver. They have 3 hot tubs... ooh la la! and a miniature golf course and there aren't a bunch of people staying here. When I look out my window, I see miles and miles of brown grass. I guess they have a huge harvest of wheat here. There really isn't much out here, but we have a Super Walmart near by. It's the cleanest, nicest Walmart I've ever been in. I'm just glad I'm with my Hubby again even though I go pretty much all day without seeing him. The real negative about Kansas is the wind. It blows like crazy here. I've already had chapped lips because of it. Well, fingers crossed I don't wind up like Dorothy and Toto.


  1. Hehe you're funny, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.
    I am bummed about your bug too, it was definitley a fun car. I am so excited to see you and Aubri here in just about a week!! She is soo cute I can't wait to see her and Leify together again they will have some quality bonding time ;)
    That is really cool that you got back together with the girls from your birthing class. No one really bonded in ours, everone pretty much kept to themselves. Portland isn't the friendliest town. I am enjoying this side of the river much better! ;)

  2. Like Dorothy said in Oz ... "There's no place like home, there's no place like home!"
    And for now home is Kansas since that's where your family (Tim & Aubriana)is. Hope it all goes well, and sorry about the Bug. We're sure glad Tim wasn't hurt. Those are scary calls to get for sure.

  3. That's too bad about Tim in the wreck, but good that all is well otherwise. Congrats on the move, it has got to be so wonderful to be back with your husband!

  4. Yikes, I'm glad Tim walked away from the accident unharmed. Car Accidents are never fun. So sad about the Bug. I have fond memories with you in it.

    Kansas... Your brave, but at least you are together as a family. That is the most important part.

    So we haven't really told very many people but we are having another boy. It's a good thing, we now what to do with boys.

    Hope all is well, talk to you later.
