Isaac vs Isabella

 crochet crochet crochet---bell is being blessed in new orleans on september 2nd....crochet crochet crochet crochet.....hurry hurry hurry.....and then

ISAAC! hurricane Isaac aimed straight at New Orleans---david and jasmine evacuated with their 3 little ones to his parents' home in Beaumont (and yes---there were a few prayers sent for Isaac to aim towards beaumont---but then i stopped that)....
crochet crochet---weather channel---weather channel----power outage----floods---security alarm goes off---David and Jas dont know what happened to their home---no one can go look at it during the storm---but the security alarm company called and said a back door was opened....and then the power went out...... hearing from friends about flooding-----crochet crochet crochet-----FINISHED! YEAH!

friday---aug 31---they decide to go home----have power! for about 10 minutes---then it goes out---we fly down there Saturday morning---power comes in about 10 minutes after we arrive---hallelujah! Their fence came down in the back yard---and they got a very little moisture in the garage---no door was opened---so they were blessed----they had friends who had just moved into their first home and had 4" of water and no power for a week (as of this writing---still no power!)---david hall spent 2 afternoons there pulling up carpet and floor---my david spent sunday afternoon there!

 we shop at walmart---yeah---shelves were empty                     this is a house near their church
                                     saw many light poles down----so many fences---so many power trucks and tree removal trucks.....people hit it right away to start recovering
HUGE tree came up right out by its roots! lucky it didnt hit their home
but we were here for a more blessed reason

jasmine and her girls----asleep

what a cute family!
                                                    bell in her dress (she borrowed Beth's slip)                                      

grandpa's favorite position
                                                 there was only one hour of church---and no microphone---but we got her blessed----and she looked beautiful---
                                             after church---Iva Hall, James Hall, Ben, David, Beth & Bell Asleep David, Jasmine and me
                                                even made her a headband to match her dress
                                                         grandpa (coach) with miss Bell

                                            grandpa with a smiling Beth!
                                                            Mr Ben ready for church
                                            Iva and coach got Bell this beautiful blanket
                                             grandpa can always get Beth to grin---not an easy thing!
                                              so I would say that Isabella was the winner!
