Refugees. It's been a wild week.


Last week I was sewing to finish Easter dresses or nursing a baby every waking minute! Saturday, Tim cut his arm playing outside and he had to get stitches. Sunday went well, we had a wonderful Easter with family! All I could think about Sunday night was waking up (late) on Monday morning and spending the day holding my baby and NOT sewing. That's NOT how it went. Ben woke me up saying "Get up! We've got to go to the hospital, Tim has cut his foot really bad!" I'm not going to go into detail because it can really make your skin crawl, but he had a pretty bad cut. Poor little guy! He has had a hard week!


This morning we woke up to tornado sirens and nasty weather. We have no power and it looks like it could be a few days before we get it back on. This tree was down in my sister's back yard. We are so blessed that it didn't hit the house!  


We found this little guy, alive, under the limbs. He was lucky too!


There is a whole other storm system headed our way and they have predicted that it will be the worst we've had since the 60's. Please pray for us! The tornadoes did so much damage this morning and the next storm is supposed to be much worse and last a few hours.


Ben is at the fire station, so the kids and I are refugees! We are now at my mother in law's house and we plan to stay here at least through the night. We saw several damaged houses on the way here and lots of downed trees. We have also heard from many friends that they are without power and have property damage. The next line of storms are due to hit here in another hour or so and last until 10:00 tonight. I'll check back in when we are back home with power and internet. Stay safe everyone! Love you guys, Sam

Praying for you all. Tornadoes are regular occurrences here in south Alabama...so thankful you were safe. Praying also for Tim to heal quickly and for you to get some rest. Those kiddos need a healthy mommy. ;0)

Stay safe. The St Louis tornado came within a couple miles of my Uncle & Aunts home. The storms seem especially strong this season. I'm glad your with family, since your Hubby has to be away.

Oh my goodness! We were just talking about this yesterday! The storms have hit up around Huntsville, too, but thankfully my husband's family is still safe, although I heard a few people were killed. :( I'll pray for you guys! It was good to talk to you!

I am praying for you guys. Poor Tim! With all his adventures, he has may war wounds to show off! I still crack up thinking about the dresser story last year!
