I can't believe that I found you, fate did a number on me. If you end up with my arms around you, it's meant to be. Well, maybe my crazy is showing, but baby I'm hooked on your touch. But wherever my life is going, there ain't no rush. 'Cause wherever you're goin', I'd like to go too, if you don't have anything better to do. I'd love to spend some more time together, so what are you doin' between now and forever? I'll take the blue with the gray days, I just pray the road will be long, 'cause if I'm beside you there's no way I can go wrong. - Bryan White

I Succumbed...

Well, I finally broke down and created a Facebook account. So, if I haven't found you yet - request me as a friend!

PS. Jer is doing much better and we will probably be back to our house on Monday!

Clay's Clown Shoes

I took this video the morning of Jer's accident - January 22nd. I came into the den and found Clayton walking and dancing around in my shoes. He put them on all by himself!

Jer Was in an Accident...

Mom has the pictures I took of his truck in the tow yard posted on her blog if you want to see the damage.

It happened at 11:00am this morning as Jeremiah was headed to Ogden for work/school. He was at the mouth of Sardine canyon in Wellsville when he hit some icy rain and black ice and lost control of his truck and spun into the oncoming traffic and was hit by a minivan on the passenger side. We don't know how the minivan people are doing - just that there were no fatalities (thank goodness). Jer's injuries include an L5 fracture (lower back), bruised liver, and a concussion. He was admitted to Logan Regional Hospital after an ER work-up at about 3pm today and will be staying overnight at least one night... hopefully not more.

Thank you all for your concern in advance. Clay and I are being well taken care of and will keep you updated on any new information about Jeremiah's condition.



Update: 1/23/09


Jer is staying in the hospital again tonight - the doctors have been concerned about his kidney function, but things are looking better and one doctor said that as long as things continued getting better tonight then he will be able to come home in the morning. He was up walking around twice today and they started him on solid food at lunch time. (He was very glad about that.)

We also found out that there were 2 people in the minivan that hit him - an elderly couple. They were sent down to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden with some broken bones, but as far as we know they are still okay.

Here's some more pictures of the truck and one of the minivan that hit him (it was on the front page of the Herald Journal today).







That's it for now - I'll let everyone know if/when Jeremiah comes home!

Update - 1/25/09

Jeremiah was able to come home yesterday (Saturday) morning. He is sore, but only needs help to sit-down or stand-up. He walks without assistance. We'll be staying at Mom and Dad's house for a few days. The doctor said the fracture should heal itself in 6-8 weeks (just in time for Jer to help me with Baby #2...). Hopefully things will be back to normal soon. Thanks again for all your concern and well wishes!

Morning Poses

Lately Clay has been sleeping in until about 9:30am, so Jeremiah or I go to check on him and we have been finding him in the most peculiar poses. Earlier this week I found him with the bumper pulled over his eyes - still sleeping:


(He's also upside-down in that picture. That's the foot end of the bumper.)

Today Jer found him like so:


I wonder how long he was sleeping like that...

And here are some cousin love pictures of Clayton and Owen. Sorry for the lack of pants. :)

A chair perfect for two!


And I have to say that I am psyched that American Idol is back on. I will once again be posting my opinions once it gets down to the top 24. I have heard a rumor that this year there doesn't have to be an equal amount of boys and girls. That would be awesome - I hope it's true. For sure the last few years some crappy girls have gotten by just because they had to pick 12 of them. We shall see - only 3 more weeks of auditions/Hollywood week to go!

Cars and More

I got this cool toy table from Freecycle the other day - it has storage inside and the top can be a Lego board or this 'raceway'. Last night Clay and Jer were playing on the car side together:

This clip is Clayton giving Owen love and then fake sleeping.
