Noises at Night & The Culprit

Brave is exactly what I was tonight!! I have been sitting here watching Backyardigans with Cameron and reading a few blogs here and there. Well, I was sitting here with the TV up a bit louder then normal so, I wouldn't hear anything and BAM, I heard that same noise again tonight. Well, I wasn't going to sit around and be freaked out so I grabbed a pair of Shawn's shoes, slipped them on and out the front door I went with the phone in hand of course. Cameron stood at the front door and I just went out on the stoop to take a peak around the corner of the house where I heard the noise. Well, the good news is that I didn't see any footprints, but I did see something quite scary. It appears that the noise maker is large amounts of icesicles hanging from the side of our home. Yep, these things are probably the size of a yard stick and I am not kidding. They probably weigh so much and they are falling off the gutters and hitting the side of the house in the process. Yep, I was quite relieved to see that they were only icesicles and now I am laughing at myself because both Cameron and I were freaking out so much last night over icesicles (hahahaha). Isn't it crazy what kind of tricks your mind will play on you? Anyway, here are the oh so scary icesicles that we were so afraid of last night. All I want to do now is go outside and knock them all down, but I guess I will have to wait til tomorrow when it is light out. Temps are suppose to be -20 degrees tonight so it is once again gonna be a chilly one. Time to bundle up and stay warm.

I am sorry, but I am cracking up. That would so be me. We used to have a cat in heat outside our about a scary sound. It drove us nuts and woke us up for a week straight. Horrible. So glad you found the noise and it was nothing. Sleep tight!

Those are some HUGE icicles! Living here in sunny AZ, we don't have that problem anymore! Ryan figured it out and we were about 100 degrees warmer than you in the midwest with the wind chill...glad I am here!! Hope you have a better night and sleep tight!

Whew! Funny you should mention icesicles, because today I was looking at ours hanging from the gutters and thinking that if I were to knock those down that it may do some real damage. Yikes! Then, I really would be in trouble with the hubby. :) (lol)
Glad you figured it out, my mind would have been doing the same thing. Seems like it always likes to play tricks on me too.
Love and hugs,

Glad it was nothing. And go you...MS BRAVE ONE!!! :)

So happy it was only icicles making all the noise. I would have been terrified.

Lisa--thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog. It was so encouraging and supportive. You are right when you say that infertility changes everything about you and the way you approach life--it is a devastating and seemingly never-ending journey. But I know God will use it to work for good in my life. And I thank you for taking the time to share your story. I love how God uses blogs to prompt complete strangers to encourage other strangers!

Your little boy is just adorable.
