Well hurricane IKE came in on Friday September 12th and we are still feeling his presence today. Hurricane IKE was Jersi's 1st true hurricane and I have to say the first that made Eric and I scared enough to leave the next time. Our power went out on Friday the 12th in the middle of the night so on Saturday we packed up some things and headed to Uncle Reid and Aunt Beth's house. They had a generator and boy were we thankful!! Jersi was nice and cool and that was all we needed. We stayed the night Saturday and waited around on Sunday for our power to come back. Didn't happen!! We packed up on Sunday for Austin to go stay/visit with Eric's dad and Pat. Maw-Maw and Paw-Paw Garza! Once we new power was back up we headed home on Tuesday the 16th. Eric went back to work on Wednesday and I am still working from home due to our building being totally flooded! The roof of our building was 75% damaged and water just started pooring in from the sixth floor, I am on the 4th. Anyway I tried to take pictures of most of Jersi's first hurrican adventure and hope all of you enjoy!! Through all of this Jersi didn't make a peep! She was good as gold and had a blast everywhere we went!! As you will see from the pictures she ate a chocalate sucker with our neighbor Julie on Friday before hurricane IKE arrived. I think she liked it!! :) We played in Aunt Beth's HOT PINK OFFICE chair and took walks outside as neighbors started cleaning up their yards! She ate popcorn with Paw-Paw Moe and tried to pet the cats with Maw-Maw Pat. Then she was smiling and just chillin as we were all very happy to be heading home to a house WITH ELECTRICITY!! Compared to most we were very very lucky! We are BLESSED!

We had a fun filled weekend with lots of visitors. On Saturday the Hawkinson's came over to watch the Aggie game. We enjoyed playing with Hayden and getting some sweet kisses from baby Abby!! We also had Grandma and Grandpa Garza in for a couple of hours from Marble Falls. On Sunday we had uncle Reid, aunt Beth, aunt Kay, and uncle Steve over for fajitas and of course the Cowboy game!! We enjoyed a beautiful weekend with lots of great company!! Jersi had a wonderful weekend. She has become very talkative over the last month or so. Most of what she says you can't understand however it is lots of fun listening to her interesting conversations. She is saying, "yes, no, daddy, momma, thank you on occasion, hey" and lots of other important things we have no clue how to interpret! Sorry don't have any pictures to post I will get some up this week for sure!!

We went to Morgan's 2nd birthday party on August 24th and boy did Jersi love the big blow up slide! She would come barreling down that slide and I was about to have a cardiac arrest as she came down backwards, upside down, face first, doing flips!! She had a wonderful time at the birthday party! Thank you to The VanArsedale's for a wonderful time! For those of you (you know who you are) who have a comment about the hot pink bow! Yes, she is swimming with a big bow in her hair!
Jersi is an outside baby! She loves to be out on the patio or in her swing! Every evening when it cools down a little we go outside and play with the neighbors or go in the back to swing!! Thank you Me-Me and Paw-Paw Hemi for my swing set WE love it!!!
