Well, dh has been to the house and everything is fine! We did have a tree in the backyard down, it crushed the kids treehouse and part of our shed, but fell away from the backyard into the the uninhabited land in back of our house. Our pool and, most importantly, our house are in perfect shape. Dh said there were two enormous branches in our driveway from the pecan tree in the front yard. If our vehicles would have been there, they would have been smashed. My parents house and all of my friends' homes weathered the storm with no damage, as well. I just thank God that Gustav wasn't anywhere near as horrible as they said he was going to be. The electricity is even back on.
We are going to be staying in Houston through the weekend. Dh is going to come up Thursday to meet us. We had actually planned a trip here for this weekend anyway, so me and the children just came up a few days early lol We are staying at our best friend's house, so we are having a great time : )
Thank you everyone for all the prayers and thoughts, I really appreciate it more than I can say! It is such a warm feeling to know that friends you have never even met in real life care so much.
Hugs to everyone!
