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

Surviving The Flood
We have sunshine here in Tulsa, OK finally. The rain started Monday night and kept coming all day yesterday and then into the night again. I have never seen so much rain in my life. It sounded like it was going to come through my roof at times. Our backyard has very poor drainage and I just kept having these visions of a wet house after the backup. But the water has already started to recede, and the sun is out once more. Tomorrow and Friday promise sunshine and in the 70's, so hopefully we will dry out before more rain hits. I am so grateful that we didn't have any damages and that we were all kept safe. Now if we can just get Corey home from Miami, with all the recent flight delays. We are hoping for tonight so we will see how that goes.
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.
