Another hurricane has come and gone! This time we decided to stay in Lake Charles and weather the storm. The boys thought it was a slumber party because Gran (Patsy Miller) came to spend the night. We stocked up on all the necessities: water, canned goods, batteries, food, meat to grill, and 4 gallons of milk...just in case Louis ran out!
We lost power about 11:30PM Friday night. By morning, it started to get warm, so we went to Nana and Pop Pop's house (Thomas' parents - Pat and Patty...they never lost power) and ate delicious homemade blueberry waffles. Will and Louis had some much fun playing with the uncles - Drew, Ben, and Chris! Our electricity returned shortly after lunch.
We had no damage or flooding to our home! Just a few branches that fell. We are so fortunate and very blessed. Here are some pictures of the boys helping to pick up the yard. Will, Louis, and Charlie (our pup) had a great time racing up and down the flat bed! Enjoy the pictures!
