Uprooted...in more ways than one! :O)


One week ago today we were packed to the gills in my Excursion with Hannah, BJ, John and Ginger and Jim in his Colorado with Oreo (devildog). My sister, Vicki (who also happens to be the BEST SIS in the world) opened up her home to us in Seguin! We got on the road about noon, as did most of Clear Lake City due to a mandatory evacuation. Traffic was steady, but slow. There were only a few times when we came to a standstill and the total trip took us 6 hours. The trip home only took a little over 3! (Thanks to Heather for telling us about the Westchase toll road)


The kids were "hunkered down" with books, video games, ipods etc. They were AWESOME the whole trip.



" hey Mom- I will take pictures!" BJ got to sit up front due to his broken leg! One good thing to come out of it..."Shotgun"!
Friday was mine and Jim's 16th anniversary. Depending on the area power restorations we were talking about celebrating this weekend. Our favorite restaurant is not opened yet in Rice Village, hoping soon though! Sunday we celebrated Hannah's 13th birthday! i cannot believe i am a parent of a teenager. it feels like I was 13 just yesterday! Here is her cute teenage smile. Better enjoy it- I have learned that teenagers don't smile a lot! :O)

Hannah, Aunt Vicki and I went to Brooklynn's (my great neice) 3rd birthday party and when we came back Daddy had made Birthday Brownies. I decorated them and then we had a PARTY! They were delicious, but we still owe her a REAL party! 13 is a big milestone!!!
This is a dolphin webkinz from BJ! I told him I was going shopping for her and he made sure that I knew that is what he wanted to get her. He can be so thoughtful sometime.





Here is the room that we had to put Oreo in. Why? you ask??? Well were sitting out in the front of Vicki's house and my brother-in-law Mike saw Oreo run around the front of the house. Mike and Jim made sure that there were no holes in the fence and that it was locked so she couldn't get out. We put her back in the back yard and a minute later we saw her JUMP over the 6 foot fence. If I hadn't seen it myself I would not believe it! We had to put her in the back room that they use as a craft/ playroom. Imagine my horror when we walked out there and saw this!!!

NAUGHTY DOG!


We had gone to Gruene and John wanted a harmonica...so I bribed him to let me take his picture in these glasses! I love Hannah's expression in the background. (I just had to throw this pic in the mix!)



Here is the traffic light near our house (taken by BJ)

As we pulled down our street

A guy stopped by and offered to cut the tree up- we took him up on it!!!

Think we could use it as firewood???


Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes! Time to go get my house back in order! Please continue to pray for those who lost so much in the tragedy of Hurricane Ike.
