After the wind and the rain...

...we made it! Last night I got up to check on Audrey at 3 am. She was wide awake and cooing! (even though she has refused to nap all week!) I knew she should be hungry so I began to nurse her. The rain began and I became scared. I usually don't freak out with storms, but I could tell it was really bad out there. I did not want to lay her back down in the crib next to the window. The power went out and since Audrey's noise machine went off, I could hear the tornado siren. I went back into our bedroom and woke up Michael and we took cover in our closet. He had his blackberry and we read that there was a tornado (or what could have been a tornado trying to form) headed towards Farmers Branch. I think we were in the closet until 4:30. Audrey didn't go back to sleep until 5:30. I laid in bed, listening to the sirens, wondering how bad it got out there. I took a walk this morning and there is quite a bit of damage on our street. Our power came back on not long ago and Audrey is taking her first nap of the week!

FIRST nap of the week? Brooke, you must be exhausted! I live for the time when the kiddos are down for naps:)

Scary weather. My parent's house got some pretty rough weather and the sirens went off there too. Apparently, we got some bad weather (not as bad as you), but neither me or Brad woke up to it!

Glad you are okay! I agree with Shannon, I don't know how you are making it! Brooke, she is precious. I love all of her pictures in the last post. Too cute!!

Wow, I forgot how close you live to school! Driving to school that morning was crazy! Traffic light arms were completely turned at a 45 degree angle, trees were uprooted, and fences were blown down! I'm glad you're okay!
