Man, how long does that luck stay with us?
Over the past month or two, my family has been in the path of some pretty strong storms. Weather people say "GET READY" and we get ready. The rain comes, the lightening makes the sky look like its daytime and then the thunder beats like a drum more than Travis Barker.
Every time we have been lucky to only be hit with wind, rain, and a bunch of noise and the fear of the sirens to head to the basement.
Well last night after our neighboring state of Alabama (which we are only 19 miles from) got hammered all of those storms they headed for our direction and north of us and south of us. So basically all over the line of NW Ga. and SW Ga. Yesterday Alabama was getting leveled by these storms which had tornadoes, many of them destroying parts of the state. A very good friend of ours had damage to their house.
The local news and weather was saying that it was coming right at us. I mean US. Our house, our little city. We got the basement ready, watch the news and when the sirens went off and the sky was bright and the wind was either blasting or calm..we thought it was time. The radar and the tv showed that the purple globs and rotation was coming our way. North of the interstate an open pipeline for destruction. For some most awesomely great wonderful reason the storm cells would spilt and go around us. Noth and South. Like the letter V. <- Like that. We are the - and the < is the storm going around us.
People I know and work with live in areas where some tornadoes hit. Ringgold, Rome, Cartersville they got hit and did some major damage. Everyone I know is alive and well and had some damage but they are all ok.
As of 11 am today there are reports of over 200 dead. That sucks. Weather is crazy, you never know what is going to happen. I am a dunce when it come to weather. T is always "Lets go to the basement" and I am like "Nah, I dont feel like going downstairs" Well it is because of her that we hopefully will always be more safe than not.
Our friend Gretta, David and their kids had damage to their home in Alabama and we finally heard from them today that while their city is like a war zone, they are all ok. T and I talked about them last night as the storms came and went.
Always be safe and prepare for times like this...well the best you can really but always try.

I change the screen picture on my laptop every week or so. Well this weekend C2 was sitting next to me and looked at the screen and looked at me and said "Daddy, that is C4" I said, yeah it is. Next was "Why don't you have a picture of me on your computer?" I told him I change it up every now and then. Sometimes C1, you, C3, C4 and sometime all of you. "Daddy, I think you need to put a picture of me on your laptop!"
Well son, ask and you shall receive. Not only will you be the the featured picture on my laptop, you are going to be the featured person in my post today. You and your Euro-style soccer self. Mommy can explain it to you.

Here's to hoping that many bunnies left many pellets in your house this past weekend. And I also hope that you all had a great Easter Sunday.
Our weekend was fun. It started Friday when the kids were playing and I decided to try out the NEW Zumba dvd's we got in the mail. Tried and failed. Lets just say I have no dancing skills and I did the legs, abs and thighs and that was tough too. I will be practicing. Maybe after all this Zumba I can get on Dancing with the
Stars Regular Folk.
Saturday was a busy day. We got up and headed to Lowes for the build a project for the kids. We were in a hurry so we just picked up our bird houses and they also gave out Earth Day reusable bags and free baby pine trees to plant. Then we headed East to Decatur for the
