That Silly Elf

Bobby has been a busy little elf this year, and has gotten himself into some mischief.  Check out some of the places that Hailey has found him:

Bobby brought some magic beans for Hailey to plant.

She planted them before school.

When she got home the magic beans had grown into cookies!

(Having the light on in the fish tank made the water look yellow in this picture, but I just have to say that it’s not actually yellow and the fish tank does get cleaned!)

2011 Flood

October 1st, 2011 Melanie Posted in Life 1 Comment »

A few weeks ago the area we live in suffered from a devastating flood.  Thankfully we didn’t have any flooding at our house as we live up on a hill.  The worst we suffered was having to boil our water for about a week. Which is of course nothing compared to the loss that others have suffered.  So many people lost everything and it has been so heartbreaking.  We were not able to get out of our neighborhood for a couple of days due to roads being flooded and closed.  Rich went out a couple of times to see if we were able to get out yet and he took some pictures of some of the flooding.  Here are some pictures from September 8, 2011:

This CVS is still closed as the flooding was so high in the store that the entire store had to be gutted.
