Our Hurricane Experience in Pictures...

I have been trying to put together this post for days, so finally here it is...

The days before Hurriane Ike hit were spent preparing. We had to take some breaks though. Here is Kieran chilling out in his high chair, watching Mommy cook.

This was taken Friday night, Sept. 12 before Ike came in... We were watching the news and he decided he just couldn't watch...

This is what was on the TV screen for days on end before the storm. This was Friday night as we were trying to figure out exactly where Hurricane Ike was going to make landfall.

About 2ish Saturday morning, we lost power. It was sooo silent in our house that I lay under my covers listening to the wind whip outside all night. We were very blessed and had no damage to our home and, most importantly, we were all safe. The next day was spent figuring out what to eat with no electricy and how to entertain the kids with no electricity and not being able to go outside. We went over to Grandmommy and Papa Ted's and ate our good steaks before they went bad with no electricity.

Finley found all sorts of ways to entertain himself (and us)...

First he did his exercises...

Random Kieran shot!

Then he played with Kieran's bouncer attachment...

Then he cleaned up his books and toys. He "cleans" by throwing things behind his head.

Then he performed his famous under the table crawl!

Open the drawers, close the drawers, open the drawers, close the drawers...

What do we have here?


Time for more exercises! I see you taking photos, Mommy! Why are you upside down?

"What, Mom? Honest, I didn't touch him!" (He is really hot and sweaty here since electricity had been out for a good while by then) Grandmommy and Papa got electricity back Saturday night and ours came back Sunday.

Oh, but it WOULD be fun to play with his toes!

Okay, I'll just play with these awesome shoes! He looooves shoes (not wearing them, but playing with them!)...

We interrupt Finley's adventures for another random Kieran photo from earlier in the week...

I bet Mommy isn't watching now, I can play with Kierbear's feetsies! What fun!

More random Kierbear shots! What a smile!


Oh cabinet doors are fun too! Open, close, open, close, open, close, open, close...

More shoes! Woohoo!!!
Our backyard after Hurricane Ike came through early Saturday morning...

And, here are a couple of cute videos... The first is of Kieran "talking" to Mommy. The second is Finley playing ball (practicing to be the next Craig Biggio) with Grandmommy. What a natural, right? :)
