Winter Storms....pretty but not fun!!

Yeah!!! After four days of being out of power our electricity is finally back on. It was a stressful time, but we are so blessed to have such a wonderful family to help us when we are in need. The first day it was out Emily, Grandma J and I spent the morning at Aunt Julie’s house. Emily had lots of fun playing with Katy and Kevin. It wasn’t too cold in our house yet so I took her home to take a nap. When she got up we all packed up and moved to Aunt Lisa and Uncle Jamie’s house. We weren’t the only ones staying there. Grandma and Grandpa came too. So that whole first day was just a big party for Emmy because she got to play with all of her cousins that day.

We were able to spend the last two nights at home because my brother in law bought a generator and was gracious enough to let us borrow it. The first night home Emily slept in till 10 am!! She was one tired girl.

I just don’t know what we would have done without all the help from our family. We really want to thank Jamie and Lisa for opening up their home and putting up with us for so long. Rob’s parents for making sure we didn’t go hungry. My mom for buying a deep freezer to store all of our frozen beef in. Julie and Rob for letting us use their new generator. And finally to Andrew Galloway, a friend from church, for helping Rob set up the generator. God has truly blessed us with wonderful friends and family.
