Busy week

As many of you know, last Wednesday night there was a horrible storm/tornado in our area and many other areas near Chattanooga. Being the terrified person (of tornados) that I am, I decided that we all needed to get into the closet and wait on the storm to pass. I know that this seems silly, but I was really afraid that this tornado was coming toward Ooltewah. So since we were goingto be in the closet a while (about 20-30 minutes) I took some toys and books in so that Cooper would have something to do and not be so bored! Well, Cooper ended up loving being in the closet and he did not want to get out. He kept saying "Lets stay and play in the closet" and then he even said "I want to sleep in Daddy's closet tonight!" During our entire closet adventure, Hudson managed to stay asleep and completely unbothered the entire time! So anyways, I know that I probably went a little overboard, but at least my family is safe!!!

This was Cooper's face when we told him that we were going to stay in the closet and play b/c of the storm!

Here is Cooper sitting in the closet reading and waiting out the storm/torando!

On Sunday afternoon, we took Cooper up to the stables by my mom's house. Lori and Bailey were nice enough to get Jester (their horse) out so Cooper could ride on him! As you can see, he loved riding their horse!!! Thanks again for letting him ride on Jester!

Storms are so scary! Glad that you guys were safe! I wish there was a place close by here for Emery to ride horses. I'm glad Cooper has a helmet on, I don't trust horses one bit!

Yeah, that was a pretty nasty storm we had! We couldn't decide whether to head for the basement or not because we live in East Ridge and all the rough stuff looked like it was heading toward Harrison/Ooltewah. I'm with you too - Tornado warnings always make me nervous!
