Those words you never want to hear...

"Hi sweetie, where are you?"



"Hey babe....the boys and I were in a car accident, but we are okay."



Yeah. Those words. 
Those words that make your heart sink and made the tears come instantly. 
My boys. All of them...all four of them in the car together. 


Yesterday was a crazy, full, exhausting day. 
Trevor had dropped me off for a quick 15 minute appointment and was driving the kids around the block when an 87 year old lady with dogs blocking her view, pulled out into traffic and hit the driver side, passenger door where Camden sits. 

SO many things to be thankful for:

Trev saw her and sped up a bit, so the impact could have been worse

We have a Honda Pilot so the car sits up high and the damage was to the bottom part of the door by the tire. If we had been in a sedan or other car....I don't even want to think about what would have happened.
Her car is in far worse shape...an Accord.

Our kids are in amazingly safe car seats. Spend the dough on safe seats...seriously.

Jack was holding a cup and the impact caused him to drop it. That's pretty much the only thing that upset him. 
He was very aware of cars close to us the rest of the day, saying "Watch out for the car Daddy!!"

She took full responsibility and admitted she couldn't even see because her dogs were blocking her view.
And she's insured.

Trev has the typical very sore neck and back and has x-rays this morning just out of precaution. 


But, they are all okay.


I said it's a good thing I wasn't there because I don't think this Mama Bear could have restrained herself from that 87 year old woman. 
The loves of my LIFE were all in that car together! My babies


I am so thankful that the Lord had his hand on them.


I have been hugging and kissing even more than normal...
all moments are a gift.

  1. Boy I know how you feel! /: When we got in our accident last year, I could hear Lexi's scream for days afterwards. People just don't realize how important it is to PAY ATTENTION TO THE ROAD! If the impact was over 25mph, Make sure you get all new carseats, especially Camden's since it was the closest to the impact. (If it was under 25mph the furthest away might be ok, you can call the carseat manufacturers and check!) Insurance will pay for new seats! glad they are all ok!! Kids don't usually get as sore as us old guys!

  6. When I read about it on facebook, I couldn't even begin to imagine how that must have felt when you were told that. I'm so sorry. I'm so glad that they are all alright. So glad. But I'm so sorry that they all had to go through that. I hope that the soreness passes quickly and the memories even quicker.

    ((hugs))

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
