I wanted to share my favorites from our picture session with Jessica Rowell Photography in Hernando, MS. If you’re anywhere around that area and want some wonderful pictures done of your family for excellent prices – call her! She’s amazing!
Amelia wasn’t too terribly thrilled to be doing these pictures, but she did better than I expected. Caroline did great as long as we sang Veggie Tales over and over again! I’m really, really happy with how they turned out so I wanted to put them up here to show them off.
In other news, we had a car accident last Sunday but we’re all okay. Someone didn’t see us coming down the highway and crossed the intersection (going straight across.) Thankfully, I did hit my brakes and swerved to try to miss him, so we avoided a total T-bone collision, but I did slam into the very front of his vehicle. I was honking the horn when we hit him and our airbags deployed. When we hit him, it somehow basically knocked our wheel off the car and shot us into a small ditch. Let me just say that wrecking with your whole family in the car is a lot different than wrecking by yourself! Someone who saw the accident said he knew we had babies in the car because our car had not been stopped for 2 seconds and both of our doors flung open to jump in the back and get them. We were so lucky. No one was hurt, including the man we hit. I’m so, so, so thankful for that. I had some cuts and bruises on my arm where the airbag deployed while I was honking, a seatbelt rash on my chest, and some bruised knees – and that was the extent of everyone’s injuries. We were all really sore the next day (and even worse the 2nd and 3rd day) but I’m feeling 100% now. It probably didn’t help that I had done Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred on Saturday night for the first time ever. Yeah. Talk about bad timing.
Look at that dirt that we took with us from the ditch! Crazy! Our car was totalled, and we’re hoping to get a new one this week. I was SO sad about my car! I know that a car is just stuff and is replaceable and I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome of our situation, but I was so proud of my car! Oh well, it did its job and kept us safe!
If you’ve made it through all of my ramblings, thank you.
