Simmy's Latest Adventure

Poor Sim fell down my mom's porch stairs while carrying Simmy out to the car last Sunday night. Simmy went flying, and was knocked out cold. When we could not get him to wake up we called the paramedics, and he was ambulanced to Primary Childrens Medical Center. When Simmy did start to respond, he was very combative, and pretty funny. He informed the Doctors and nurses in a loud scream that he was "The child with the baddest life ever." This was ofcourse after he had already accused them of trying to kill him, because they had him strapped down to a board with a hard collar on his neck. Here is a picture of him after he became once again our sweet, human child, and started to recognize us. He had a concussion, but is doing great now. The first few days after were like "50 First Dates" at our house. Thank heaven that has resolved. We are just so glad he is ok. Love you Buddy!

Oaklie Echo "Dancing Queen"

Well, Oak has managed to escape without any injuries. Thank goodness. She is loving dance and preschool, and actually writes her name legibly now. She sings through my belly to her baby brother every day, and informed me today that I am "finally getting it" (a belly). She is still a very girlie girl, and addresses her prayers to "Our Heavenly Cutesie Father", and blesses us all that we will be "beautiful" and "handsome", and "love everyone inthe world". She is a crack up.
The other day, a mean old man at the grocery store shoved a basket into me, because he thought I was butting in line. She informed him that her "Papa and Bompa would NEVER do something mean like that", and that he needed to tell me sorry. He apologized, and she continued to point him out until we left the store. She is so cute, and we love her one of a kind personality.

Our New Car

Last month I was in a serious car accident. I hit black ice in the middle of the freeway, and slid into the cement median at over 50MPH. My car spun 3 times across 5 lanes, and into the other cement median. The car impacted 4 times front and back, and then I spun around facing traffic in the middle lane. I had to climb out my window, because the door was pinned. Needless to say, the car was totalled, and I had to go to physical therapy for my neck for several weeks.
Anyway, here is a picture of our new car. We got a Jeep Commander. I love it. It has heated leather seats, stadium seating, a custom lift, custom tires, rims, grill, and well...just about everything else, including 4 different languages for the digital dash (maybe I can learn French).
Most of all, I'm glad everything turned out ok, and that I am here. It was very scary, and I remember thinking that I felt bad that my kids wouldn't have a mom. Glad things turned ou the way they did.
