Hurrication 2008

The boys!
Ellery and her new pal Elin taking in the game (For all of my fellow Aggies - just to let you know I have completely given up on my children wearing maroon. Go ahead and call me a two-percenter.)
Ellery spent most of her days outside

Great grandparents!
Thank you Lord that Price was born before all this hurricane madness!

Some promised pictures from Hurrication. I know that Hurricane Ike devastated so many people and has inconvenienced many more. In fact, about half of our friends are still without power. Our neighbors had a tree fall through their roof and cause so much water damage that their house will need to be completely rebuilt. It gets even worse - the whole family including two small kids were in the room it fell on. Unbelievable.
I can actually say for us the hurricane brought some much needed rest and relaxation. While I was not sleeping much at night, I had 3 extra people to help out during the day. Ellery could not get enough of Poppy, Lulu, and daddy. We also were able to get together with friends that also evacuated to Austin. We went to a Longhorn game which was a first for Ellery and baby Price, ate LOTS of great food, and even shopped. I feel a little guilty that we had such a wonderful time while so many people were roughing it in Houston.
