Ike Update Part 2

Well, we are ok and got very lucky!!
Ike was no fun, let me tell you..

We had a houseful of 6 (which is normal most of the time, when Bryan and Gavin stay over!) Friday, and then as of Saturday went to 12!

We never lost power, Internet or cable!! Woo hoo

(I did forget to go online and change my lineup for fantasy football (I know, I know!) So my team is hurting b/c some of the players were on bye week or my beloved Texans didnt play) :(

Back to Ike.

Our fence is up, trees are still planted, and our roof is still on! Thats more than I can say for most of our neighbors though. We are very thankful...we seemed to have a bubble around our house! (God Bless!!)

I posted some pics on my last page, but here are a few more..they make me so sad





This is where Hooters and Murdock Pier used to be..

and this is what it looks like still at some gas stations around town

Please continue to pray for the victims of Hurrican Ike...it is going to be a while before things go back to normal in alot of places


Ok...CCBC (Cross Country Book Club for you newbies!!)...

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE what happened to me this weekend.

Here I am trying to finish reading Twilight, just sitting back relaxing...

decided I might be crushing on this Edward Cullen character (lol)...

when Bryan walk in the front door and says...
"You are not going to believe what we just found in the front yard"...
(as he is handing me this....)


yes, you read that right...
Holy Cow...I thought it was a joke, because I had literally just finished saying that maybe I should look for a vampire to date (haha)

No, not a joke. It was really in the front yard (and seriously, where would he have the time to find a vampire cd in the aftermath of a hurricane to play a joke on me with?!?!?)

So needless to say girls...garlic is hanging from all the doorways in my house!! ;)
Lets see if I have enough courage to keep reading this series!! lol I just finished Twilight and I cant wait to start New Moon!!)

Well, I hope everyone else is having a good week...I have more pics to come, but our desktop decided to get a virus and wont let me download them yet!

Stephanie said...

You did better than us! We lost power for 2.5 hours and didn't have cable/internet for 2 days about. Katy was very lucky though huh? More than so many :(

I'm cracking up about the CD!

And 12 people?! Holy!!

I have been MIA lately and had no idea you were in the path of the hurricane. I am so happy to hear you and your family are doing okay. Please know I am praying for everyone involved with the hurricanes.

I have been hearing so much about Twilight lately, but a book about vampires never really interested me. I am more of romance novel type. But, I think I am going to have to give it a try.

Emily said...

Glad you and your family are ok. I did not lose power ever, either. I have co-workers that still do not have power (as of 9/19).

I think I am going to have to read that book. I have heard so many good things about it!

And have I told you lately your son is a doll??!! Hope this weekend is better for all in the Houston/Galveston area!

Tam said...

I am so very glad you guys were lucky!

OK so take down the garlic so Edward can COME in but keep reading....I think they mention That Garlic does not really work..LOL LOL LOL OOOO yeah I have to agree on the Crushing on Edward CULLEN!!!

That is toooo weird about the CD that means YOU need to finish the Series...LOLOL

glad you are ok... amazing how some homes can be destroyed and others left standing - saw the same thing in Georgia & Alabama with tornadoes a few years ago...

God bless you and your family...

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I cannot believe that CD was in your yard...creepy :)
Every time I see pictures from the hurricane, they just amaze me. BTW, your son is adorable :)

lovelylalo said...

W.O.W.! I sometimes hate to see the pictures..it makes it so real. Thankfully things are slowly coming back to normal for some people. I have been house hopping and living out of bags and it is starting to get to me.

The picture is cute...love your comment. My prayers are reaching out to all the IKE victims and families.

*HUG*

Im so jealous...I want Edward to make me a cd, haha. And why would you put garlic up, he already said it was a myth. But besides that, who would want to keep him away? I know I wouldnt. Come to my house Edward...you're more then welcome :) HAHAH
