Bedtime is a precious thing for Him and ME. HA!!! He never stops running, jumping, or playing ball. Addie is cute and smart, but Sassy as ever. Her smarts gets her in a little bit of trouble. The smarter she gets the more in trouble she gets, :-)
Our recent craziness is our hot water supply line broke and flooded part of our kitchen and under the floor in the kitchen, hallway, bathroom and part of our bedroom. The extractors that came to dry out the floors and walls said had we not caught it when we did, 5 more minutes and most of our house would have been flooded. Crazy. It happened on New Years day at about 3:00 am. Sam heard water and thought someone left the water on in the bathroom. checked it and everything was fine, but he still heard it and checked the kitchen and walked into a flood. He woke me up and said , Tammy, I think we have a problem with water in the kitchen. REALLY??????? He is so laid back. I came to the kitchen we tried to turn off the water under the sink and that lever was broke too. We thought maybe we would need to go outside and shut the water off to the whole house.... in the snow and ice cold ice storm,. brrr..Andy happened to be staying here that night and I woke Him up to go help Sam get the water shut off outside , he thought he would try to pinch the line under the sink, it worked, so we duct taped the line, Duct tape is great stuff. We finally got the water to stop spewing and turned the water off to the hot water heater. Nobody was working on New Years day so we had a day without hot water and the next day the fun started with plumbers, insurance and spending the next 9 days in a Hotel while they extracted water from under the house and dried it out. Now we have ruined cabinets in our bathroom and kitchen and insurance just wants to patch, not fix. Should be a fun adventure until we get it squared away. Insurance adjusted $2000 worth of work. The contractor adjusted $12,000 of work. So now we are waiting for insurance to ok the construction. Praying God helps me keep a good attitude and know it is all in his hands. :-) The work that needs to be done HAS to be done so praying the insurance understands that and does the right thing. Hows that for a post ???? :-)

|Finally found a restaurant that was open. I can't believe we were in Colorado Springs and everything was closed at 10:00. CRAZY!!!|
|Cousins... love this picture of mine and Cathy's kids.|
|This tree was in the El Paso Airport on our way to Spokane on Thanksgiving. We thought it was pretty cool so decided to ask someone to take a family picture. We don't get many of those. Sam is usually on the other side.|
