I Still Love Technology....Always and Forever



Olivia woke up around 4:00am Friday throwing up. Alex got up with her and cleaned her and put her back to bed. We thought it might have been an isolated incident because she only threw up her carrots (which she did not chew very well at supper and they were raw) but it wasn't. She got sick again later that morning after sleeping in until 9:00 (very much not like her to sleep that late). I called and scheduled her a doctor appointment. She threw up on the way to the appointment and then once we got into the building. The doctor said she had a "bug" and gave her a shot. Poor baby. I haven't had to go through a shot with her in a long time. She was a big girl though and calmed down quickly. The Dr also prescribed her some nasuea medicine. She felt a lot better by Saturday afternoon.

Friday afternoon a horrible storm popped out of no where! I was at work and there is a weeping willow tree outside my window that was dancing around like crazy. The sky turned pitch black and then came the lightning and thunder. One of my co-workers opened the back door and dirt and debris flew all in the hallway. We were finding dirt in our mouths and eyes the rest of the afternoon. It was scary. We also saw a funnel cloud dipping out of the sky. A house near where our girls go to daycare was lightning struck and caught on fire. And, as some of you know, we live in the middle of no where, and our power went out around 3:00pm. It was hot at home and we went through out the night with no power. We left the house Saturday and went to Alex's office to take showers and get cleaned up. The power came back on around 1:30 on Saturday. And I learned that I just do not know what to do without electricity! I needed to wash clothes, vaccuum, clean the kitchen, check Facebook, read some blogs, cook supper....it was awful! I am pathetic. But, it is back now and lots of cleaning has been done today.

We took a trip to HobLob to get supplies to make Father's Day gifts and on the way Abi and KayKay were playing "I Spy". Abi says, " I spy something......church colored." And guess what, it was a church!

We had some fun with the "Bubba teeth" as well. And Alex was tuned in to the Razorback Baseball game as much as possible.




I am confident that none of the grandpa's look at the blog. So here are their Father's Day gifts. We try to do something home made. Last year Abi and KayKay painted bird houses and we put Livi's hand print on them because she was too small to paint. This year, they get pictures with feet and hand prints.
