wow, being an evacuee is tough. just kidding! we've been so very blessed by our friends here & it really has felt a little like a mini-vacation. well, a vacation on an aerobed, & of course with most vacations you don't have to worry that you'll return to a tree through your roof. and speaking of, we got a call from our neighbors & our house is fine!!! really? really? i couldn't believe it! after watching cnn, i was honestly preparing myself for a good deal of our furniture or my clothes being completely ruined, or our wood floors, or our china (did you see my "a few of my favorite things" post?)... so getting that call was a little unreal.
AND as if our wonderful friends & our house being okay was not enough blessing, we got a call today that our power & internet are back on!!! whaaaa????? YES! sooo in the idea of "blessed to bless", we're returning to houston tomorrow with hopes to help out our many friends & neighbors who are still with out power & running low on gas & groceries. we stocked up @ our old kroger & head out in the early a.m.
so here are a few pics from our fun weekend...
