Car Accident

Yesterday, Jacob and I were in a car accident. We were driving out to Surprise for Kendon's little sister's baptism. We were on Greenway just east of Bullard (almost to the church). Each side of the road was only one lane. A man was driving east, we were driving west, when he ran the red light, crossed the middle line and hit us head on. I tried to hit my brakes as fast and hard as I could but it was very sudden. Jacob was behind the passanger's seat and I was driving. Witnesses said that a friend of the driver said they had been out all night partying.
Both Jacob and I were very blessed and doing well. We have not heard about the other car, but he was transported to the hospital immedietly. Jacob had to get stitches and he hit his mouth very hard. He will most likely lose his two front teeth. The nurses at the hospital told him he would get $2.50 from the tooth fairy for every tooth he lost from the accident :] I am pretty sore today. I am pretty lucky with only having a bruised and swollen knee, burns on my right arm from the air bag and red scabs across my chest from the seatbelt. It's hard to breathe at times because of the impact of the air bag, but we are doing great considering the circumstances.

Here are some pictures of the cars and of Jacob's lovely face.


Good thing we were driving a tank!! Dad always said if I was in an accident, I would win.
