Double Trouble!!

Like I said earlier, 
Ken and I are expecting TWINS in April!  Here are some pictures of our families celebrating with us from a distance!!


A lot has changed since the last time I blogged on here!   Ken was loving his experience at UTMB and the people he was working with there, school had started for me and Oppe Elementary was really starting to feel like a "home away from home",  we found out we are expecting TWINS in April, we have been blessed with amazing friends that live near us- it all was going so well!  THEN...
September 10, we heard that Ike was headed OUR way!  As a Tennessee girl, I really had no clue what to do to prepare for a HURRICANE!  My vocabulary has expanded tremendously!  If I had a nickel for every time I heard "hunker down", "surge", and "the cone of uncertainty" I could replace all the stuff that we had to leave!!!  But like so many who have been through this before, I packed up what I could- and couldn't live without.  Tried to move what I couldn't take to "higher ground", boarded up the windows and doors with plywood and headed out of town on a bright sunny day- leaving Ken behind.  :(  He had to stay for a little while to discharge his patients at the hospital and finish up at the house.  He soon headed to Houston (regularly a one hour drive that ended up being about 3 for both of us)  and met up with me to head to Memphis!  It has been great seeing everyone back here, but a tough waiting game to see what has happened at our house.  Ken is in Galveston right now going through our house trying to save what he can, but really trying to get most of the "moldy" stuff out of there.  Our builder said the house needs to be gutted from the water that did come in- about a foot.  He is coming back with pictures and I will post those when we get them!  Hope all is well with you guys!  Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!   We have a very busy, rough rode ahead, but God is so good and sovereign!  The perfect plan is laid out before us!!!
