Be careful what you pray for....I wanted to celebrate David's 25th birthday. David's birthday was August 30...Jasmine had plans for the whole weekend to celebrate his special day---then Gustav announced he was on the way...Gustav is not a baby---he's a hurricane... So David, Jasmine and Lyric came up and we celebrated David's birthday with a trip to Joe's Crab Shack and an Italian Creme cake (his favorite), James & Iva Hall (David's parents), Deanna & Kelli (his two sisters), Richard (Deanna's beau) and Lionel, a family frien, all came up a day later...ARENT WE GLAD WE HAD GUEST ROOMS! :) (See previous post about my LD Bell Room)...Gustav ended up not really doing anything around Beaumont---so they all headed back down to Beaumont.
This is Jasmine & David doing what evacuees do----watch and wait! (notice my lovely floor!)David went back to Beaumont to see how Valero (his job) gets a refinery back online--Jasmine slept---lots-Jasmine & Lyric got to stay nearly another week---plenty of time to make cake balls for my Gospel Doctrine Sunday School class---Lyric was able to work at the hospital for a few days (yay for good relationships with old bosses)...then they too headed back down---their homes were safe---Coach & Iva lost a fence to a tree---but they all fared better than so many. We dont like Ike. So now, be careful what you pray for---cause you might get two hurricanes!
