Fa La La La La... We Hit a Deer!


Monday afternoon we were all packed up from Heather's house and headed to Milford to meet the rest of our family for a Christmas get together. The plan was to head to mom and dad's house after that for the night and then on to KC to see Jason's family today. But God has other plans....

Just south of Grand Island, a deer ran in front of our jeep. That's the whole story actually, nothing too dramatic about it. We were able to drive the jeep back to Heather's and to the dealership today to have it looked at. We're hoping we can drive it to KC because they have more options for car rental and body shops. But it's been a challenge to coordinate everything between all the states that we'll be visiting this next week. If we're really lucky, we can drive it to Texas and get it fixed there, but let's not get hopes up yet.

However, the funniest part of the story: our 3 1/2 year old nephew, Wyatt, asked his mommy if uncle Jason killed a reindeer. Good luck with that one Heather!

Sounds vaguely familiar.... we hit a deer on I-80 near Sterling, CO. It was the biggest pain waiting for a rental, and having to go back weeks later to pick up our car. I'm so sorry it had to happen over the holidays! Glad you're okay!! xo
