We Survived Ike!

Ike has made its pass through the Houston area and we made it through without any problems. We only lost power for about 12 hours ... which is really remarkable considering they are saying that 80% of the city is without power and it will take 3 weeks or longer for everyone to be back up and running! We feel very fortunate - it was starting to get pretty warm!
My mom came to stay with us last night and a small tree from our front yard fell on her car! There doesn't appear to be any damage, so that's good! We didn't get much sleep last night. The wind was really loud and the kids were scared - but that's the worst we had to deal with! Much better than a lot of people, especially those closer to the coast.
Our cell phones haven't been working so well, but thanks to everyone who has called, texted and emailed to check on us.
On a fun note, I had some breast milk in the freezer that thawed a little while the power was out, so Jace got his first bottle today - and he took it from his Gummie like a champ! No practice necessary! I've said it before and I'll say it again, the boy likes to eat!!

Jace took the bottle like a champ, but he looked very confused that he was looking at the wrong face during dinner!! It was not supposed to be a Gummie face!

Yeah! Paul and I were praying and thinking of you. We were on vacation in the wilderness of the National Forest on the WY CO border but did have satelite radio. Glad to know everyone is great!

I kept thinking about you guys while we were watching the coverage, I thought you know I bet she would rather take a little snow rather than a hurricane...Am I right? Glad to hear you are all safe.
