Crash = New Car & Back Aches

Saturday night we were driving along (to church no less!) and we were hit by some clown!
I feel the best way to articulate this epic story is through washable markers and my little paper cut outs...

Crazy... I know! We are all OK and luckily the clown has insurance.
Sunday we went car shopping and Wednesday we bought one. You don't mess around when you only have one car and it is totaled!
We got a minivan... it's the bomb diggity!!
Eli tells the story like this...
Mmmmm... I think that...

Why am I jumping for joy?
Because we have been saving our pennies, so our car fund combined with the insurance money from the total = no car payment!! Yeah!
I can't believe I have such a nice ride... I feel like a queen. I mean I have butt warmers for goodness sake!
But Hot Hubby and I are both hurting... backs and knees (of all places). The kiddos haven't complained but it is hard to tell because they are so young. We are getting checked out on Monday.
Send us all your prayers! (Well not all of them... the government could use some and how about the new CPSIA law?... don't even get me started!)
Reminder - The first ever Eli's Lids Linky is on January 27th!
Remember When You Got Married
I wasn't at your wedding and I'm dying to see the best photos! So scan them in and get that post ready to be put up on the 27th.
Spread the word because you know you want to show off how hot you looked in that dress!!!

Wow... Well you were able to help out the economy sort of... How exciting a new car, and no payments... Crazy world we live in... Hope you all are feeling better...

Jon and Melissa said...

I am so sorry that happend. Have you thought about seeing a chiro we had one when we lived there and loved him? I can email you his info to you. Great way to score on new car seats too. Awesome you are now a mini van mom too!!!

cherimarie2 said...

I have a great Christian Chiropracter too in HB. I grew up going to him. I'm so sorry you went through that but you got a new car! I'm jealous of the mini van. We can't have a third child until we can afford a minivan..oh yah and the third child too! Glad you are okay!

Cathy said...

You have such a cute blog! I LOVE the lids! Sorry about the accident, but I'm so happy you got your van payment free! We were able to do that after I had a car accident that totaled my ride!

JaMean said...

No car payment= AWESOME!
Aches & Pains= AWFUL!

Our prayers are with you guys (mostly) and the freak that hit you! (So that he will be more careful next time...)

JaMean said...

Oh! P.S. LOVE the bumper sticker!

Donna ~ Blessed Nest said...

Oh KN I thought something might be wrong..you left my post up for days..LOL
SO SO glad you are doing somewhat OK!
and the kids too!
Love the sticker and praying!!

Kimberly Eddy said...

Oh, I am so sorry to hear about your accident, and am grateful that you were able to not only laugh about it but make the rest of us laugh too with this cute post and the adorable drawings :-))

We'll be praying for you to get better really soon. As someone who may be getting some shoulder surgery soon, can I recommend a hot rice sock? Just fill a tube sock with rice, and stick it in the microwave, and nuke it for 2-5 minutes (depending on your micro) and place it on the part that is achey. More comfy than a heating pad!

Feel better,

Oh no..sorry to hear about your car accident. So glad no one was hurt. Loved your little reenactment.lol...

Love your new wheels..
ps thanks for popping by my blog

Tabitha Blue said...

Wow, that's crazy... and what started out as something bad was turned around into something great!! A new minivan, loaded and paid for!!!!! Awesome. I will be praying you all feel better though. Hopefully it's just soreness and it subsides soon!! Great blog. Great story, I enjoyed your illustration!

Thanks for stopping by... I try to always use my own pics. That one was from a recent family vacation of me and my daughter... enjoying the simple things!

I'm off to check out your lids!!!



Tracy @ our Journey said...

I just LOVE those drawings...you are so funny. Glad everyone was ok. That could have been bad.

God was watching over you ;o}Thanks for visiting my blog....come by anytime!

The Mommy said...

I'm loving your blog...this post though - it's tha' bomb! I love those illustrations at the top. You rock girl! Oh, and I'll be back on the 27th! lol

Erin said...

Thanks for your comments on my blog! :) I found the background for it at www.thecutestblogontheblock.com. I just wanted to pass that along - hope you get to read our newest book! :)

Also, congrats on a new car with no payment - that's awesome!!!


Glad you are okay for now and hopefully after you get checked out. Nice Van!

Tara aka "Mama Koala" said...

Glad you are all ok. How AWESOME to have no payments. I'm sure it is a free-ing feeling!

Thanks for stopping by. I don't know of Crown Ministries, but just finished Dave Ramey's FPU. It was great.

Suz Broughton said...

Love the demo! I feel like I was there.
Sorry that you are still feelin' the crash, but I am happy everyone is okay--even the clown.

JamericanSpice said...

I'm so glad you guys were not seriously hurt in the accident. It is funny how you explained it all with the art. I love it!

And awesome about the new wheels and no payments. We just got our car back out the shop (was totaled) it was drivable and a good vehicle so we fixed it. Now we are still waiting after almost 5 months for the woman who hit us insurance to pay up.

So celebrate woman.

And thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate it.

Have a fab week!

I Do Faces said...

Thanks for the sweet comment!! Your kids are adorable and I'm lovin the lids!!!

Kmommy said...

Awesome that no one was hurt! And sweet that you got a car with no payments!! :)

Andrea said...

That stinks about the accident...but woohoo about the new wheels and NO PAYMENTS!! :) I hope all is ok with your back/knees, etc. though...

Belinda said...

The way you told this story was just delightful! I am sorry about the wreck (gotta watch out for the clowns . . .) and I hope no one in your family has any lasting health issues. Glad to hear you have a new set of wheels and no payments!

Jennifer said...

Oh my I am glad no one was seriously injured. Congrats on your new minivan and no car payment. I love mine.

rachael said...

Hey friend! Nice wheels :-)

Okay, lame blogger here... explain the "linky" thing again!

amymom24 said...

Thanks for reading my blog and leaving a comment! I love how you dress up all your pics with sayings:) So sorry to hear about your crash, but thankful that no one was seriously hurt (aside from the back and knee aches!) and that you got a fabulous new van. YIPPEEEE! I love how you told the story of how it happened... LOL!

lace said...

It's exciting getting a new car just not that way. And no payments is a bonus.

Thanks for stopping by. Muffin tops are not fun but the tank (yummie tummie) does help hide it.

onangelwings said...

Thank God you were all ok. Goodness.

I love how you write your posts. You keep the reader reading which is the most important thing as a blogger. Kudos to you on your new vehicle with buttons.

Haasiegirl said...

ok, i almost peed my pants from laughing. That was fab.


SuZ said...

Ha... great post. I'd be jumping up and down too if I had a new car with no car payment. Too bad about the knees and back though. :)

p.s. Found you through MomDot.com!

Kim @ What's That Smell said...

Well, I'm glad to hear you all walked away. Your illustrations were AWESOME and I love how you are jumping for joy, how great to have no car payment and a new car!

We have butt warmers in ours and my husband likes to mess with me and turn mine on when I'm not paying attention. Like when it is 200 degrees outside.

Super fun! My favorite part was the clown.
