Living with the In-Laws
Hey there. It has been a while since we have wrote anything on here. With Luke's group leaving and Brandi doing an all out cleaning on the house before her folks got here this is the first time I have sat down and got on the internet. We are having a lot of fun with Keith and Kathy here! The kids LOVE seeing and playing with their Paw Paw and Maw Maw. Mary Kathleen will ask for Pa Pa all the time. They play and just sit and enjoy their grandparents. It is refreshing to see the kid's lives get filled up again with the love from their families. Last night little miss priss stuck her little finger in our metal fan for the third time but this time it wasn't just the tip of her finger. I thought it had cut off her finger. It put a deep to the bone cut on her middle finger at the middle knuckle. Brandi and Kathy both yell, Let's take her to the hospital!!!!!" And Keith only said, now calm down and let's look at it. I am glad he was here and kept the ladies calm and he actually cleaned it up and put the bandage on it. I would look and get nasty feeling and leave to try and convince Levi that Sissy was ok. We also got caught in a rain flood coming back from Hondurus yesterday. The sides of the mountain were falling on the roads as we were driving and water filling the roads till at one point the water was gushing up to the middle of our car's door!! Keith just turned back around form seeing this while Brandi was behinnd us in the car and said, Didn't like that. I started acting like my dad and the places where the road had actually fell and washed away I would act like I was going to drive close to the edge and he would "calmly" but strongly say, "I don't think so go to the other side now." It was funny. But so far we haven't lost any lives or fallen off any cliffs so we are doing pretty good this time with the McBays here. We sure are spoiled after having the brothers and now the parents here for almost three weeks in a role. I don't know how we will be able to live with Brandi after they all leave and it is just us again! HA I did lock us out of the truck this morning. That was interesting. But so far so good. Pray for my little girl's finger and the healing will come fast and without complications. There you go.
