i don't think we're in kansas anymore

so i was popping in here to blog about something that very well may have changed the entirety of your existence, but alas, we shall never know as i no longer recall what it was. after logging on, you see, i was sidetracked by the sound of hail pummeling our roof/driveway/vehicle-that-is-sitting-in-the-driveway-even-though-there's-room-in-the-garage (whoops), and had to stop by weather.com first.

i was expecting a thunderstorm warning, maybe even a tornado watch (i have this tornado paranoia-borderline-fixation for no apparent reason, as i have never seen one (unless you count my ever-weirdening dreams, in which case i've survived about 247 monster twisters)), and lo and behold i see a flashing warning in bold letters that says--get this--POLLEN ALERT: POLLEN IS HIGH IN YOUR AREA.

um, yeah.

like okay, i do appreciate the hazards of some quality pollen, as i often take its sinister attacks on my nasal passages personally. but still, a little anticlimactic.

anyway, all this to say that i have not even a smear of a recollection of what i was originally going to tell you all. but. i do have a cute picture of one of my cute kids. and in the midst of all this cuteness, one ought to find it difficult to hold my decrepit memory against me.







happy sunday, in any case.

You have weird dreams about tornadoes too??? I'm always calm & helping people get to safety, usually in high rise buildings with 5 or more twisters visible through the big glass windows.

Hope your roof, cars & plants are ok... from the hail, not the pollen :)

POLLEN ALERT! Hahahahaha--love it.

And yes, ahem, on a more serious note, may your car and rooftops be undamaged by the hail stones which have disguised themselves as huge balls of pollen, fooling weather.com stations across America.

I love you guys!

Hahahaha! You my friend are hilarious. Sorry about the hail - I hope your car/house/plants made it through dent/hole free.

Elle is gorgeous as always.

You are hilarious! Paul has a weird fascination with tornadoes too :)

Love the pictures! The texture is VERY cool! That is something I'm just trying to figure out...but most of the actions I've found can't be used in Elements :(

She's a beauty that's for sure!!

take a bow Jenn

Bwahahah! That's too funny!

It might be more alarming if you were seriously asthmatic or something, I guess but still...funny!

That is too funny!!! I am so tired of HAIL (although we are getting a new roof paid for because of it), hope everything is okay or INSURED! lol


GORGEOUS picture of Elle!

Haha!! You're too cute.

I *am* in Kansas and so we have frequent tornado warnings. They're not so bad really.

Speaking of, have you seen the show called Greensburg on Planet Green channel? It's completely fascinating!!
