we are THAT family part III

i honestly didn't know this would turn into a's almost getting ridiculous isn't it?  what can we do but roll with punches and pray?!  and laugh, of course.  there was a huge storm last night.  sirens that stopped in front of the house around 3 am...heart fell to stomach.  downed power line in front yard.  i was laying in bed wide awake planning what to do if the tornado sirens went off...rain boots, purse, laptop, kids, basement.
the sky was lit up with lightning more than it was dark.

without any prompting from me, the girls wrapped in shaws, got their flashlights, laterns and chairs and watched all the traffic having to turn around in the driveway...the police men wouldn't let them through.

we are that family who can turn any situation into a learning experience and fun!

while the power was out, the kids sewed, read books and played outside.  the doors were open for a very nice breeze and fresh air. {and i think that's a handkerchief tied in scouts hair, i truly never know what they will come up with! she is wearing a poodle skirt you can't see!}

today...we are THAT family.  the thankful, sleepy, happy family.

we are that family part I
we are that family part II

thanks goes out to the crew {firemen, police, repairmen} for working steady to keep us safe!

  9. Oh my! You really are THAT family. I am so glad that no one was hurt. I am also glad that no fires were started this time. ;)
    I will be praying that this is the end of your action for at least a little while.

  11. Those storms have been Cuh-rayzee! (My Dad works for OG&E, he says they've been soooo busy!)but the rain is sooo nice. Been thinking about heading up your way to visit my friend who is staying in Sands Springs while her hubby is deployed. Let me know if you'd be interested in getting together!
