Families are like fudge... mostly sweet with a few nuts

Monday we started to deal with the lovely winter ice storm that came through Oklahoma. We of course lost power and did not get it back till late last night. So two days without electricity is so hard. Luckily we live by my parents and so they still had power so I went there during the day. There are so many trees down here. They are all over the place. Corey actually cut back all the big tree limbs on our trees this past spring and I am so grateful now. Luckily we have no trees to worry about in our yard. But everyone else has trees that are down or huge limbs have fallen. The ice has melted finally and we are getting back to our regular routine, although school is still out and I am anxious for it to get back in...so are the boys. I will have pictures to post soon.
Logan is my little helper. He is willing to do anything that I ask him. He is so loving and mild mannered. He also can get his feelings hurt easily. And boy does he love his Grandma.
Gabe to put it mildly is WILD. He has always been moving and grooving since he was born. He is our stubborn child and is very aggresive. Always thinks he is the best at everything. He is the only one he even slightly resembles mom.
Lexie is our girly girl. She loves make-up and painting her fingernails. She has a mind of her own and thinks she can do what she wants when she wants. She is always the one who tests our authority as parents. But she loves her Dad and can wiggle out of just about anything.
What a sweetheart. Very quick to smile at anyone willing to make a fool out of themselves. She has become very attached to mom and I think mom really enjoys it. She requires A LOT of attention all the time. Mom really only gets a break while she is sleeping or being entertained by someone else. What a sweet addition to our growing family.
Our 5th and final miracle. Danni has already been such a joy to our family. Even with long nights and busy days she has blessed our lives. We are so excited to see what kind of person she will grow up to be.
