Twin day and Hurricane Matthew!

Monday October 4th 2016- It was twin day at school and I found these shirts for 2.99. They looked so handsome, They both were cracking me that morning. I was trying to get them to smile and Peyton of course starts  smelling his arm pit and they both started laughing historically. It was three days before Hurricane Matthew was suppose to hit.

 They cancelled school Thursday and Friday so that people could preapre for the storm, It was crazy when  I went to buy water there was literally nothing left. I found some in the baby section and took 6 of those. They energy at the stores was palpable, every one rushing around trying to find what they needed. We were ready to go for what ever came and then.......... nothing! We played out side in the rain for a while on Thursday morning and it rained pretty hard for 15 minutes and then it was over. We joked with the kids, telling them that was the hurricane and it was all done now. Little did we know that it was really the only rain we would get in regards to Matthew. Thursday night was the night that they said Homestead would get whatever part of the storm we were going to get. Nothing came. I was not windy or rainy, just quite and still. Unfortunately we were very blessed Matthew killed over 800 people in Hati and 18 in the U.S some in North Florida and some in North Carolina. Are prayers have been with those who have been affected by this storm. 
I took this pic a Publix Thurday morning October 6th.

       Playing in the rain, the boys loved having no school and it was fun to just chill as a family.

 2016-2017 school pictures, we never by them cause they are so expensive but we get a little card in their backpacks and we use that to remember what they looked like in that grade.

Kansas/ job search!

 Tex and I were fortunate enough to have been flown out to Kansas to take a closer look at the job opportunity they have their. It would be amazing because we would get to live in the same neighborhood as are close friends the Andersen's! Tex would work with Mike and he would make really good money with 6 weeks of vacation time, It's only a 13 hour drive from Utah and because it's a hospital system they have a loan forgiveness program. Lots of pluses! Tex also has some good opportunity in North Carolina that he is looking forward to exploring the first of November.
 We had the best time looking around the little town and spending time with our friends. Brittany and Mike are two of the best people I have ever known. She will forever be some one I look up to and love.
 The hospital put us up in a bran new hotel room, just recently built. The bed was so comfortable with so many fluffy pillows I thought I was laying on a cloud.

 On the Friday the 16th- Me and Britt got breakfast at Burger King and later we all went four wheeling in what use to have been the Arkansas river.

     We flew out of Garden City and it was the smallest air port ever! I got the biggest kick out of it :).

We got home at 1:00 am, It was a fun get away with Tex and so good to see my best friend! Our sister in law Beverly and Niece Sissy were both angels for coming to watch our three little ones for us. We were able to really take in Kansas and enjoy our self's knowing the kids were safe and being well taken care of. We even had a good portion of the next day to go to the beach and hang out with them before they went back to Texas.
