Well we survived our first "hurricane"! Actually by the time it hit land it had fizzled out and all we got was a good thunderstorm which isn't anything new for us. We were prepared for several days of no power and fortunately the power was only out for a few hours! I didn't even get to use my handy all-in-one "wind-up rechargeable power AM/FM radio, flashlight, emergency alarm, cell phone charger"! (Thanks Erik!! It's in our emergency kit ready to be used!)
I even BBQ'd ("grilled out") in the rain! I'm either a silly Californian who doesn't know better, or a hardcore North Carolinian...you can decide. (No, there was no lightning at the time)
We don't have a lot of updates so here are a few photos just to say we posted something. ha!
This is me on the back deck, on my favorite piece of furniture that we own....my World Market table and benches. One of the benches in on top of the table becuase I was using it for a background for my etsy pictures and hadn't taken it down yet.
And here is my redneck husband, truly fitting in with the southern way of life. Later that day he went Rattlesnake hunting on our property...no luck though. It's still out there somewhere.
Gunner sitting so proper...waiting for the smallest crumb to fall off mommy's pizza.
Gauge looking as cute as ever.
During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
