Family Freeze

We have had a house full this week! Due to the Ice storm up north and the power outages my Grandparents and aunts and uncles have been in town all week and have no plans to return home anytime soon! They all live in Pocahontas in the same big neighborhood and have no power and damage to their houses and cars. They are glad to be warm and safe and have worried about their friends but have eventually talked to most of them. My uncle went back to get the dog and take gas to his neighbors for their generator because they were unable to even get gas with all of the power outages. He also checked on all of the houses and there were trees through several roofs as well as my aunts car windshield and some house windows busted out by a tree. They are reporting that it could be several weeks until the power is returned due to the high number of outages in the state and probably because they are in a small town. Please pray for the safety of all of the families without power and Tadd wants prayers for the utility companies to move quickly-ha!

The girls are loving all of the extra attention! I have wanted more family to be closer during the last year without my parents and this was an unexpected way for it to happen! I just keep thinking about how much Mom would have loved all of this, she loved to be with family and loved to play games. We are getting a lot of play time on the Wii. They all love bowling and can't believe how good Ella is without even trying. I had to take a few pictures, when else are you going to get pictures of your 89 year old grandmother bowling with your 3 year old-good memories!

That's awesome! I might need to bring my papa to your house and we could host a Senior Adult Tourney! We can't keep him off the Wii either!
