A quick update

Door stop

The storm ended up missing us at the last minute. It drizzled all day and we hardly got any wind. My sister lives in an apartment (in Houston) and already has her power back on! Thank you so much for all your prayers!

Oh Kelli, I'm so glad to hear that. I've been worried about y'all so much. My heart and prayers go out to those people who weren't as fortunate in the storm. BTW, did you get lots of "crafty" things done? :)

Adrienne said...

Good news from you, Kelli. Our prayers continue for those who were less fortunate. I love the picture of the pumpkin doorstop! ~Adrienne~

I have many cousins in the Dallas area, so I knew you were fine :D

Kelli,
Glad to hear you are ok. My Aunt and cousins are in Houston, and they did ok. They are without electricity, but otherwise all is good. We said prayers this morning in church for everyone affected by this terrible storm. A few years ago, Isabel did a considerable amount of damage here in Virginia. We were without electricity for over 3 weeks, and the phone was longer than that, but looking back, we made a lot of memories and took life a little slower, did alot of reading and real talking to each other...so it wasn't all bad. Hope you guys dry out soon!

Kelli, I am so glad that you are okay. Your sister has her power back on already!! Truly amazing.

This weekend I worked in the garden and when I tried to get on my blog, Blogger had deactivated it. So....I started a new one. Didn't want to miss out on any of my blogging friends doings.

God bless.

I was watching the news today about Ike and all of a sudden remembered reading on your blog that you were from Texas, so I had to check to see if you're affected. Glad there is good news on this post.

Glad to hear you are well, watched footage on TV and glad to say we very rarely get storms like that here.

Katy said...

Tina Leigh said...

I have worried about you and Revee and Patty...wondering if it would affect yall. I'm glad it didnt and I am glad your sister is ok. Hard to believe she has power already. We are some blessed people aint we!!!

Straightway Church of Ooltewah said...

So glad to hear you are ok Kelli! Unfortunately we are getting hit by skyrocketing gas prices due to the hurricane and we are in Tennessee!! At least that's what they say they are blaming it on--and most of our stations around town do not even have gas--it's scary!!

Oh I am glad you and your sister are safe. Love Clarice

I'm so glad you all were safe and sound. It was a terrible hurricane.

Dawn said...

Here in the DFW area all we got was wind and rain from Ike. No power outages or damage.
I stayed up all night and watched Ike make landfall (online as we don't have TV) as I am fascinated with hurricanes and tornados and I would keep yelling to the hubby 'Ike is only 45 miles from landfall' or 'He's almost there!'. :-) Don't think the hubby cared at 2 a.m. hee hee.

Blessings,
Dawn

Hi Kelli, I am glad to read that you and your family are ok. I heard on the radio this morning that some of the people in Texas will be without electricity for weeks. Thankfully we do not have hurricanes here - I am afraid of storms.

Beth said...

What a relief about the storm! If you want..come check out my blog to see where my youngest dd, two friends and I got to go this past weekend!

Heart 4 My Home said...

Glad to hear she has power again. It is so frustrating for the area down here. although the power people are working so hard to restore things and are doing a great job at it. But Hurricane Ike was not fun to go through but the aftermath is even harder to deal with.

~Blessings

Jenn said...

I am SO glad to hear you've been spared the horrendous battering from this thing, I was worried about you all.
