Finally!! After four nights of darkness and cold our power is finally back! I was going nuts! Entertaining a 7 month old in the darkness (well with some candles and flashlights) was no easy task. My 12 year old did fine, but it was really taking a toll on us. By the second night it started to get really cold so we made a fort in the middle of the living room and slept in it. It was MUCH more warmer then sleeping in the bedrooms. The power came in the evening so it was the first time I had seen how much this hurricane damaged so many homes and left people with nothing but their clothes on their backs. I'm from California so I'm used to an earthquake here and there. I have never experienced something like this and I was freaking out. I'm so thankful we didn't get affected as bad as other people did, but I'm still sad that this had to happen to so many people. Especially with the Holidays around the corner. My heart and prayers go out to all those people affected by this! If you'd like to help you can text "REDCROSS" to 90999 to donate $10 and help those in need.

Thank you so much to all of you who kept us in your thoughts during this incident! Your words mean so much!!
Last but not least I wanted to wish my beautiful daughter a Happy Twelfth Birthday! She was such a trooper about not being able to celebrate today. I love you baby girl!
