Ike Update Part 1

As much as it pains me to look at these pictures, I think it is crucial that everybody understands what Galveston and surrounding areas went through with Hurricane Ike...
These are 2 link that I was emailed by Jenn and Kirsten...

Please take a moment to say a prayer for those that are without their home, their family, electricity, or those still waiting to hear about their loved ones and property.

We are all ok in my family and noone had major damage. We have so much to be thankful for!
I have a full update coming with pics (later today or tomorrow) but I just wanted to update everyone who has been checking in with me!
Thank you guys so much

(on a lighter note..I finally finished Twilight...now I just have to find a store thats open to buy New Moon!!)

I have yet to see any of this devastation. I guess that is due to the NO POWER issue. I will take a peak before I head home. Glad to be back at the office.

All the Ike victims are in my prayers for sure. :-)

I'm glad you guys are okay. I can't imagine going home to a cement slab! They are definitely in my prayers.

Glad you got some reading done.

Those pictures are so sad to look at... and some of the comments people leave really make me mad... I dont think that Galveston will ever be the same... thanks for those websites.

Glad you finished Twilight... book 2 might be a lot of everyones least favorite, but it was still hard to put down! I really liked it!!

Those pictures are just heart breaking. I haven't seen many of those yet. It is so very sad. I'm glad to hear you and your family are okay.
