Here are a few pictures of how the hurricane affected my parents home in The Woodlands. They were living off a generator but the power came back on last night. Hallelujah!!! Our prayers go out to all those who were affected by this terrible storm.

It's been forever since I have posted any blogs. Between work and a baby, I really don't have a lot of free time. Work is good though, I really enjoy what I do and I really like the people that I work with. I do however hate the commute to downtown Dallas every day. I have recently started taking the bus into work. It saves us a lot a money plus it drops me off right in front of my building downtown. This is my first month to buy a pass to ride all month long, so we will see how it works out.
The reason I am able to update the blog today is because Grace went in this morning for surgery to have tubes put in her ears. The hospital was in North Richland Hills and we had to be there by 6:30 am. And if you are familiar with the Dallas area, Carrollton and the hospital are not very close to each other. I am so tired. I kept thinking about the surgery all night and was ready to get it over with this morning. The surgery went well. The doctor said he was able to drain a lot out of the ears before putting the tubes in. She has either been crying or sleeping since we got home from the hospital and the car ride home was eventful. She pretty much cried for 40 minutes straight.
Not much else going on around here. We did go to our first birthday party last weekend at Deanna's house. It was Faith's 1st birthday! Grace was pretty tired but we had fun. The girls play pretty well together. I wish we could have more play dates together, especially since we don't live far apart from each other.
And the weekend before last was Grace's baptism at our church St. Andrew Methodist Church of Plano, Tx. She was one of three babies being baptized that Sunday. We are happy to announce Grace's God-parents are Lauren Brumley (my sister) and Kurt Metzger (Ryan's bother). Everyone came in town from both sides of the family for the blessed event. Thank you all for coming!
This weekend is Cade Runyan birthday. Happy Birthday Cade! Sorry we can't make the party but we will hopefully we will be out in east Texas soon for a visit.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. And who know I may even blog again before the weekend is over.
Mom and Dad be stay dry as hurricane Ike approaches this weekend.
