Look What the Ali-Cat Drug in....

The Guarjardo Family dropped in twice on us this past weekend... It was so good to See Ali, Anthony, Bella & Kenzie. The girls are just precious.... Wish they could have stayed longer!!

Shore Thang- Up close and Personal

This weekend was the first trip to Bolivar since Ike came through. Everyone loaded up nervously in anticipation of what would be found at Shore Thang- Our Beach House on Crystal beach. It's hard to explain the reaction one has to the devastation all around you and how you reason that one house is standing and the neighbors is gone. The emotions of this day run crazily, all over the place. Once minute its sadness about the devastation, loss and mess. The next minute you realize your house it repairable compared to those around it and you feel jovial and happy that you were spared and have what you have.... one word is exhausting..... Here are some pics of the Beachouse and the area around it:

I threw a 30th bday surprise party for my dear hubby this past Saturday and it was a HUGE success. I managed to keep it from him for months-- which for those of you who know me, know thats pretty much impossible. I can't keep much from him :) We had about 50 people there and when he showed up after golfing all morning, he was SHOCKED! It was so much fun and so good to see everyone!! After our terrible summer, this was a great way to bring things to a happy ending :)

He was so happy!
