So Happy to Be Home

This sock was her favorite "toy" at our friends' house....
We saw sooo many of these tree trimmer trucks on our way home
My sweet girl sleeping on our way home. Love this picture!
Up from her nap and so excited to almost be home!

I have never been happier to see my home than I was this afternoon.

We had some branches down.

That was the damage that Gustav left us.

I am so thankful and happy and relieved.

I am hoping to catch up on your blogs tonite.

Or tomorrow.

Thank you ALL for the kind words.

The prayers.

And your thoughts.

They worked.

We ended up going to Montgomery and stayed with some really good friends of ours.

They were so sweet and we had a lot of fun.

We went shopping a few times (they had Target, Kohl's and Toys-R-Us!)

We had some amazing food--Angel is an awesome chef. Out of this world amazing. I think I gained five pounds...or more...
PS-Today is Isabella's 11 month birthday! I cannot believe she is almost 1....

So glad there wasn't a lot of damage. I've been watching the weather channel like crazy so I was hoping you guys weren't hit as hard.

Such cute pictures...especially the one of her asleep in the car seat. Love that.

Happy you had a great visit and even happier that you are home safe and sound. :)
