Crisis Averted!

So this isn't really much of an update on Hannah as much as it is a sigh of relief. I pride myself on being pretty savy when it comes to those crazy scams that people try and sell you on, never give your credit card number out over the phone, never give you bank account number, yada yada yada. So this morning, my electric company calls and tells me the online payment I did, never went through. (And I did in fact do an online payment) They then told me I was going to have a $40 late fee unless I paid today. I was so panicked that the payment didn't go through that I almost paid for it over the phone! The only thing that stopped me was my husband waving frantically in the background wondering what the heck I was doing about to give my credit card over the phone. In hindsight, I don't know what the HECK I was thinking. So anyway, he then proceeded to tell me that this scam was going around The Village, where we live, and Oklahoma city. So to you Oklahoman's out there, beware! I feel silly for even admitting that I was about to do something so stupid, but I just got caught up in the moment, so I thought I would warn you folks out there as well. To end on a more positive note, here's a cute pic of Hannah with her Papa! :)


  1. Quick thinking! In banking, they are always telling us the new scams, I haven't heard that one though. I'll have to let people know.

  2. Good to know, thanks for sharing! And I love your Christmas pictures, you guys are such a beautiful family :)
