Close Call!

Yesterday when I was driving home from work, I was seriously almost hit by a big cement truck. Holy Cow! He was in the lane beside me and decided it was time for him to make his turn which meant he had to turn into my lane! I slammed on my breaks and my car skidded just a little and I came to stop. I looked out my window and there was his big tire starring right at me. It certainly did scare me. No harm done, thank the Lord for watching over me.

Close call #2..........Ok, maybe this isn't as dramatic as it may sound but you have to know how much I HATE spiders!I had just gotten out of the shower, I opened and the door and Bam!, there on the floor stood this:

This is not the actual spider but it was this big! I slowly slipped out of the bathroom to get the raid, trying not to scream b/c I didn't want to wake Malachi up. I got the raid, sprayed it, and it took off.........into my purse!!!! What?!?!? I held the smallest piece of corner of my purse and started shaking it. It finally fell out and fell to it's death! Not the way I wanted to start my morning.
Thankfully, Malachi woke up in a good mood and started singing happy birthday to me which made it all better.

So Here Goes Nothin'!

You may all remember I use to be really good at doing shutterfly. :) I loved doing it acutally but in the midst of having an active toddler, new job, and just having a life, I stopped uploading to shutterfly. :( So I decided it was time to get back in the game. My sweet friend Mackensie has a blog and I love reading it. My sister-in-law also has been doing one for awhile and it keeps me in touch with what's going on with her. So I decided that I would start our own little family blog. Nick said he will even contribute here and there (not holding my breath). I do hope to start uploading pictures to shutterfly again. I know that was the best way for our friends and family that don't live near us to see all that's going on in our lives. But for now, Life with the Cowans will have to do!!

Today was such an awesome day. We were able to eat lunch with some of our cousins that we don't see often enough. They were passing through while on their way to North Carolina. It was a wonderful lunch to sit and talk with the newlyweds. I love getting to spend time with family.

This week basketball starts so needless to say we are going to be even more busy than we already are! Nick loves coaching the girls and we love going to watch. Malachi is growing so much. I can't believe how much he is learning, the things he is saying, and all that he picks up on. We are definitely having the time of our lives with our sweet boy.

Motherhood calls so stay tuned to see the ups and downs of OUR BIG CRAZY LIFE!
