This is going to be one of those videos that I will watch when I need to laugh! Seriously hilarious!

House & God's Will

Friday, September 26, 2008

Well for all those who knew that we put an offer on a house about 2 months ago, here's the update. We didn't get it. DanE and I both know that if God wanted us in this house we would have gotten it, but it is still a little disappointing. I guess it's back to the search! If anyone knows of a house or land for sale, please let me know! Also, please pray for us! I most definately need patience. Love you guys.

Mom to Mom

This one is dedicated to a truly amazing friend! Megan really doesnt get enough credit for the awesome woman that she is. Chad left today for Houston for an entire month. She called me, and Caleb has been upset and going through some awful phase. Megan, not only absorbed my verbal vomit, as if she didnt have issues of her own, gave me some amazing advice and then she met me at Target for some shopping then Chick-fil-a for some lunch and entertainment. And by entertainment I mean Caleb with a Biter-Biscuit. Anyone who has seen a child with one of these wonderful inventions knows what I mean by entertainment. Thank you Megan and I love you more than you will ever realize!I am so very blessed to have women in my life that have been where I am right now and can give me pointers. The Lord knows I need them! I am also very blessed to have women in my life that are right where I am right now that can relate immediately to the new experinces. I dont have it all together and I am not going to boast but it is beyond me why some women are too prideful to take advice from other women. Especially moms. I know that there are times that you really dont want to ask anyone because you dont want to look stupid. We ARE born with some intution but we are not, ARE NOT born baby experts and we definately do not automatically get the natural how-to novel embedded in our brain as soon as we are with child. I am a new mom and I know so many women that are new moms or about to be new moms. Please, please if you need help ask someone. Nobody can tell you exactly what to do in every situation, most of motherhood is trial and error I am currently convinced, but it so nice to have what others have done as a go to when you are at your wits end! I love you guys and happy day to all of you.

Needless to say, our first family vacation was an adventure! The view from our condo was beautiful but the condo itself could have used a little work. We got to swim and play in the sand, all the while watching Ike and wondering when and if it would effect us. It obviously wasnt stressing Caleb out too much!
Caleb had lots of firsts including tasting lemon for the first time!
We had been glued to the Weather Channel all week and it looked like Ike was headed right for us! By Wednesday we were the only people in the whole condo. The staff was trying to get us to leave without actually asking us. We were determined to stay just a little longer. Until they decided that they needed to put all the patio furniture in the condo with us. That did it! We packed up on Wednesday and started heading out. We knew we needed to atleast get off the island because of evacuating the ferry line would be ridiculous and the tide was already coming in and the road might be under water if we waited too long. So we braved to long, long ferry line and got into Rockport. Everyone was boarding up. All the signs outside resturants had clever little sayings about Ike.. We didnt get to Rockport until about 7:00 pm so we decided to stay there for the night and leave in the morning. We were the only ones in those condos as well. Ike still looked like it was headed for us and it was a weird feeling thinking that in the next few days a hurricane was headed right where we were! Crazy! Well when we woke up on Thursday morning Ike had turned and was facing toward Galveston/Houston area. I am not gonna lie, I actually was thinking that since we were out of immediate danger we should stay and get the rest of our vacation in. Then I returned to my senses and started packing up. We left and headed home. Caleb pretty much slept holding onto his puppy.
While DanE and I drove and talked..

My sis and her hubby live in College Station and were not sure how bad it was going to get there so they drove up and stayed till Sunday. We had lots of fun! I wantedd to get Caleb a shirt that said "I survived Ike!" for a keepsake for his first vacation but I guess he was actually an evacuee for his first vacation! Rock on!
