Near Death Experience...

Here's how it happened. It was a beautiful sunny day and my dear sweet husband and I were outside talking about "to do" stuff. He was working on moving the fence but took a break so we could brain storm together. We talked about the things we needed to do around the house before it snows, and how we needed to save money. Saving money became our biggest priority, and we both felt really good about it as we walked away to do our own things. Ryan got back in the jeep to pull out the fence posts.
A moment later I heard CRACK. Ryan had pulled out a post that went through the back window and up to the front windsheild. See in the picture below where on the front windshield it hit? Right where the passenger sits. My husband, as STUPID as this was was at least smart enought to stick his head out the side window to protect his head in case this happened.
Thats right, my husband almost died! Now I am sure all of you out there are thinking how sad, and lucky I must feel and yada yada, but really, I was mad. After talking about saving money my husband breaks out BOTH windows, costing us over $400. I have good life insurance on Ryan, not so much on the jeep.
So there you have it. My husband almost dies and I am mad he did such a foolish thing almost killing himself, killing the car and costing us more money. I am working really hard on being more grateful for his life, that we were blessed and that he's still with us. I might still go to he__ because I am not there yet.

Adelle loves to bring Lydia presents. If I leave them together for even a minute I come back to Lydia burried in "gifts". Here we have: 6 books, a telephone, lotion and a speak n say toy.
The good thing is Adelle is getting better at not putting things on Lydia's face, but it still happens. The other day I cam into to find Lydia's face and head completely burried in a firemans hat. She wasn't even upset, probably just trying to figure out why everything went red.
I am happy to say these two are so lucky to have each other :o)

Autumn Awesomeness...

Here's a picture of Adelle that has nothing to do with Autumn, just very adorable. I thought it would be a good way to start this post :o) Notice the dirt on her face?

So we'll start here. My family and Mom and her foster boy Justin all went on a beautiful sunny fall walk around Kepler Bradely lakes, out here in Palmer. It was the PERFECT fall walk, the weather was perfect, just what my Mom and I needed.

My Mom, bless her heart, was either helping with Adelle or Lydia. She walked with Adelle for awhile because Adelle wanted to walk like everyone else.

We took the bike trailer for a bit of the way but then we had to ditch it because it got too bumpy. This picture cracks me up because Adelle looks like a goof, (not a peice of her outfit matches) and Lydia just looks adorable.

I just wanted to post those pictures because they're so beautiful. And our summer has been nothing but rain so we're FINALLY getting some sun and it has just been heavenly.
