The One with the Missing Boy

Every night before Steve and I go to bed, we check on the kids to make sure they are okay. Last night as I went into Talan's room, I started feeling around the bed for him but it was empty! He wasn't on the floor either, so I started freaking out. His door was locked from the outside so I knew he hadn't left his room. I immediately checked the window to see if it was open, which it wasn't. That's when Steve came in and opened the closet. Sure enough, Talan was sound asleep on the closet floor hugging his Halloween cards that he loves so much. And here I thought kids were supposed to be afraid of the closet, not sleep in it.

LOL! I've had that same experience with Emma...not on the bed, not on the floor...scan the room, asleep in the rocking char in her brother's room. KIDS!

EEk! That would freak me out. Kids are so funny! Maybe you should let him watch Monsters Inc. and then he will stay in his bed....or maybe not.

I miss you too! I'll hopefully be in Winslow on 11/20 for Ali's play but I have to come right back. I'm not coming for Thanksgiving or Christmas this year...so we'll have to pick a weekend in the next month or two. But I'll definetly let you know when that'll be and I'll stop by!

Just be grateful he was in the house. I mean...not that I have ever lost my kids. I've said too much.

Oh my gosh, I would die if he wasn't in the house! I am going to have to hear about that story sometime!

I am DYING to see my babies. I call to hold at least one, if not two, at church. I also call dibs on tortillas and 4 wheeling. I am hoping and praying for a miracle with your injury too. please rest.
