Alright, well pretty much everyone knows that Jake and I bought a minivan about a month ago. We got a great deal. Less than a month later I'm driving somewhere over on the East Bench on my way to pick Jake up from a Bachelors party. I drive straight through a GREEN LIGHT and I get hit.

This car turned left across the intersection into me and the kids ON A FREAKIN GREEN LIGHT! Someone started honking and I looked over and saw they were going to T-Bone us, hitting directly at me and Eva so I hit the gas and swerved as far out as possible and the girl never hit the breaks, didn't try to turn wide, nothing! So she caught the back end of our sliding door took out the rear drivers tire, fender and ripped our bumper off. The seat belt was jarred so hard that Eva's car seat came loose and flipped her. The other car though had their entire front end smashed in, the windshield was shattered across the intersection, and the drivers door wouldn't open.

Still, I have a small fracture in the small of my back, but the kids managed to walk away ok. So I have to be a little careful, it's not to bad on the restrictions and I pretty much can do what I want to.


Well Morgan is about 2 1/2 now and is on the move. His mouth moves a mile a minute in Spanish and English. SPANGLISH! The other day he was playing on the piano where we have a Christus and Morgan turns to us and says "Jesús has flip flops, Jesús wear patos" " Oh, really Morgan?" " Yeah, he has zapatshoes"  It was stinkin' funny. He also like to tell you how funny he is,so after anything he does he will say to  "mommy, I funny."

Evita, is getting bigger and bigger and today she is 9 months old. Can you believe it's been that long since Christmas? Even more importantly that it's that close to Christmas! 

Since my last post Eva has started to have more teeth come in so she almost has 4 teeth across the top and still just the 2 on the bottom. She of course still has her infectious smile, and is still just content to just be. The two kids get along great and they love riding in the stroller together. It's really cute to see them like that. Eva likes to tackle Morgan and vice versa. They are still hilarious in the car together. And their new thing is to have Morgan carry Eva around and she pulls her legs up into this sumo position, both of them laughing hysterically.

As for the move, I'm still stressed and it's been a little over a month, so I don't even want to talk about it . hahaha

I also have the world's busiest calling, as does Jake. But we love our busy lives and we love being on the first floor. Hopefully I will remember to blog something funny later.
