Stormy Weather

One thing I really miss about Texas is having thunder storms. Especially at night. The sound and smell of the rain, the sky lighting up so bright it looks like day time, even the loud booms. I love thunder storms. The plains of Texas sure got good ones too.

Here in this little valley the mountains steal all the storms! I always see them up at the top of the mountain, pouring away, but they must run out of juice before they pass those rocky peaks.

Well last night a few sneaky clouds did make their way down to us, and it was awesome!

It only lasted about 30 minutes, at about 12:30. Good thing I cant sleep at night or else I would have missed it!

Tatum has been sleeping in her crib the last few days so I have the baby monitor on. Her window was cracked just a little bit, and when the storm first started up all I could hear was this crazy noise through the monitor. It scared me for a second. Tate had never made a noise like that before. But then the rain came down harder and I could hear it through my window too. We got a few big booms and I thought for sure she would wake up, but she slept soundly through the whole thing.
What a good baby :)

Yay Tate is such a big brave girl! P.S. We need to play again before you have to go back to work! Oh ya, do I still get to play with Miss T when you work? Pretty please?

Storms are so awesome!
They rarely make it over here and when they do, the lightning starts a forest fire.
Need more pictures of Tatum cutie.
