I am not dead

I just wanted to let you all know that I have not fallen off the end of the earth. My computer has decided to die and I have been without for about a week now. It is driving me nuts!!!
I have a ton of pictures to upload from our family reunion and other stuff. So until my computer comes back to life it will be boring on my blog for a while. Sorry! ( I am updating this from my in laws house)

Did you get blown away by IKE?

I dont think my magnolia bush will ever be the same again. At least it didn't uproot.

I always thought it would be cool to be in a hurricane but now I am not so sure. We only had category 1 winds but you cant get gas( only if you wait in line for hours), there is no milk in the stores( so I bought pop tarts and juice), people waiting in line at the grocery for the ice delivery man to show up, no schools open,and the list doesn't stop there. I am very lucky that we were one of the first ones to get power. We live very close to a nursing home so I think that helped us out.

I think it was really neat to be outside and get blown over by the wind though. Konnor was scared. We tried to get him to outside but he said"Im to wittle,I might blow away" Since we live in a newer subdivision( no big trees) we didn't have too much damage. Our neighbors had siding and singles blown off and a couple of little trees broken but that is all. Some friends who live a mile down the street had huge trees blown over in their yard and driveway. Kaitlyn and Megan spent the whole day helping them clean up. My poor mom and dad don't have power or water.( they have a well so the well pump doesn't work) Any one who needs food or a shower is welcome here.8o) I cant imagine going for a week without power. I don't think I would make a very good Amish person.LOL
So what do you do when you don't have church and you cant cook and it is getting dark in your house? You have a party! Thanks to our friends Katie and Duane H. for inviting us over for a cook out and providing cheap entertainment.8o)

I saw this giant bee on my flowers in the back yard tonight. I thought this picture turned out pretty good.

I hope you have a good weekend. I plan on it.


Do you remember what you were doing that morning? I do.I hope that none of of will ever forget that horrible morning and we will always remember the thousands of people who died. As I sit here and type I am listening to the timeline of that day on the radio. I have to admit I have shed a few tears this morning remembering. I think we should all hug someone we love today and thank God we live in the great U.S.A.

My sister has been visiting and she found a slip and slide on the clearance rack at the store for the boys. I think they definitely got 8$ worth of fun out of it. I thought the pictures and video were cute! Enjoy!

Some pictures from our week

This is what you call a full bathtub. I think Kade was trying to escape. Konnor and my nephew Chase playing in the washtub on a hot day.
My adorable little niece Grace.
My guys checking out an airplane flying over. (Konnor doesnt normally run around without a shirt.I dont know why he didnt have it on here)

My sister and her kids have been staying at our house for the past 2 weeks. So I have alot of pictures to post from them being here. We have enjoyed having them here. Konnor will miss Chase when he goes back home.

Happy Belated Birthday to Megan

I am finally getting around to posting Megan's birthday pictures. She got lucky this year and her birthday fell on Labor Day. We had a cook out and had ice cream cake( her request).
As you can see from the pictures she was very excited about her new webkinz.
I have a ton more pictures to post from this past week but I will save them for later.
