Hey everyone! Thank you to everyone who has been checking in on us! We've had a TON of rain the past 3 days, and we are preparing for more. Before the bad weather moved in, we went to Meet the Teacher night at school. I took one kid with a swollen eye (sty inside his eyelid) and another kid missing half her face (fighting with the sidewalk at the playground) to meet their teachers, so who knows what those poor ladies think of me as a mother! The teachers were great, and I have a really good feeling about this school year!
The rain and wind moved into Houston on Friday, and we prepped the back yard and the pantry for a long weekend of "hunkering down." We were very fortunate to be passed up by some tornadoes that touched down just 2 stoplights away from us on Saturday!
On Saturday night, the water started seeping into the house. It appears that our fireplace has become porous and is the culprit for bringing water in. We're changing the towels out and trying to shop vac as much as we can out of the fireplace. We're safe, just frustrated.
School has been cancelled for this entire first week, so I have been living by the motto, "Watch as much as you can while there's electricity!" We watched Sing, Grown-Ups, Independence Day, Beauty and the Beast and more!
I got some blogging in while catching up with my DVR.
Tanya shared Jenna's M&M cookie recipe the other day, so we baked some cookies since we had power! Obviously these were a flood necessity!
I did a face mask from Freeman, and then we played around on Snapchat for a bit.
And we pretty much repeated all of this again yesterday! We're going a little stir crazy and are ready for this weather to move on! Thanks again to everyone who is thinking of us and checking in on us- it really is appreciated! I hope that you have a much drier Monday, and I'll see you back here tomorrow for Show & Tell Tuesday and Tuesday Training!
