myyyy dad!

My dad and my little brother-
and we all look CRAZY alike.
I think it's the squinty eyes when we smile.

This is such a funny picture to me.
During our wedding, Greg was saying a prayer and Keelin yelled "Papaw, whatcha doin?!"

Last night, my dad was in a nasty car accident.
When my brother called to tell me, it was like a nightmare-
having cupcakes with my dad yesterday afternoon for Father's Day and waking up to a call that he'd been in an accident just minutes from home. I was nearly sick.

Because I have a kickass dad.
He's one of my "people."
The world would not be near as nice of a place without him.

He's getting the good drugs at a local hospital now.
He managed to crunch every rib on his right side, but thank goodness for his seatbelt, his airbag, and his Honda Accord-
now lovingly referred to as "The Accord-ian."
Yep, he coined that one BEFORE the pain meds.

I'll be out of commission for a few days-
Tim is going on a business trip, I have the kiddos, and Dad is in the hospital...
so my days will be a little crazy.
Thanks in advance for bearing with me.

and the next time you get in the car, put on your seatbelt.
Dad buckling up less than 24 hours ago saved his life.

Hi there- found you through the Sundae hop and am a new follower. I'm glad that your father is on the mend. I'm not sure what I'd do if my father was gone. Its hard enough to be thousands and thousands of miles from him! I hope you have time to follow my life in South Africa by

Have a great weekend!
