House Warming Present
As I mentioned earlier, we just found out yesterday that we now have a new house to move into next month......thank You Lord! Well, today I was headed out to see our friends who just had a brand new baby (ooooh, that made me so excited for Toby to get here), and they also just moved out there. While we were visiting 5 minutes away from our new house, I decided to see if we could get in our new house to look around and start to picture where everything will go. Les' dad, who we like to call Buster, got us in and the first place I went..............you know it, to the kitchen! The kids were tearing through the house hiding in all of the closets. So, we're having a grand time, we all go upstairs to see who will be sleeping where, the kids are leading the way.....about to go down the stairs. Now, before I go any further, I have to say that while we were at the Dukes house (the house with the new bundle), the kids spent the entire time rolling Lightening McQueen and Luigi down the stairs. They would run down, get them, run back up and do it again. I was telling them how nice it was to not have to follow after them up and down every stair. Soooooooo, back to our new house. Carter is on the second stair when Micah apparently doesn't see the first stair. He totally misses it, which makes him fall into Carter, and I start panicking and screaming. I can see it coming. Yes, it happened........both of my precious little babies start rolling down the what seemed to be like a mile long staircase AT THE SAME TIME!! All I can do is run down the stairs behind them in my flip flops wondering if I should throw my pregnant self on top of them, try to jump over them without breaking my ankles and falling, or just run after them as they are tumbling. They both stopped about 4 stairs from the bottom. No one broke anything......just a few carpet burns. We were all hysterical. I couldn't let water works flow because that would've just made things worse. I cannot stop thanking Jesus for protecting them when I couldn't get in front of them, and for giving my children angels to soften their falls. It's these times when I ask myself, "Really Emily? You're having your third baby?" Thank You God for Your protection!!!
