I just couldn't resist the pun on this one! :-) Last Wednesday evening I was watching "Downton Abby" and catching up on some sewing (just mending, not creating anything) and all of a sudden I thought the roof on our house was going to cave in from the onslaught of giant hail! I have NEVER seen a hail storm like this! We just got our new roof last October, so we're a little nervous about going up there an checking on it, but we DO know it didn't cave in at least. :) I would say it lasted for about 15-20 minutes and this video below was taken after it had died down a little bit. Here's some proof of the craziness!

(The CDs are to detract the birds... a couple of them were broken to pieces by the hail!)

Also, this past week my dad had a birthday, so we celebrated last weekend at my parents' house here in town. Here's my dad with the Yazoo Sweatshirt we got him!
And somehow I managed to get this AWESOME shot of Dave and my sister, Hannah. I think she may have been making this face on purpose, so I had to share. :)
