Ike's No Friend of Ours!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to update quickly and let you all know that we are all fine. We are truly blessed. Our electricity went out around 2ish Saturday morning. Saturday was a very hot day for us but we had no damage to our home. Our yard is full of leaves that were formerly attached to our trees and we lost some of the food in our freezers and refrigerator (although we were able to save a lot of it). Some of our neighbors lost fences and had trees fall on their homes. We were headed to Eagle Lake to stay with my sister Aimie, fighting terrible traffic in the dark with no traffic lights, when we found out that electricity was restored at Andrew's parents' home in Cypress last night. We turned around and have been here since. Our electricity was restored earlier today so we went home and scrubbed out our refrigerator and freezer and will go home tomorrow. Please pray for all of those who were badly affected in Galveston, Boliver Peninsula (afraid the situation may be really bad there as no media or anyone has been allowed in) and vicinity. Please pray that electricity is restored soon to the millions without it. Please pray that everyone will remember to be kind to others. I will post some pics of what the boys were doing during our "roughing it" weekend when I can.

Love you all,
