Our Blessed Life

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Well, Lilly, welcome to the Hazletons.

You don't know this, because you weren't even born yet (in fact, neither was your Big Sissy, but that's another story), but a while back we had to leave town on your Momma's birthday because of a BIG storm. Guess what? We are doing the exact same thing for your birthday this year! . So even though you won't be at home for your very first birthday, at least you'll have something you can share with Momma - you're both Hazleton Hurricane Honeys.

Your Momma and I love you very much, Baby. Let's have another exciting adventure and take a road trip to your great uncle's house in Shreveport! There will be lots of room for you to walk around outside in his big yard - when it's not raining. Everyone there will be so impressed with what a big girl you are and how well you can walk now. We'll have a party for you there, with your aunts, uncles, cousins, Nai Nai, and Papa! It'll be great! And on the way we can listen to the birthday CD your Granna got for you!

But for now, sleep a little longer while Mommy and Daddy pack up and get all your surprises ready. It seems like you'll have one uninvited guest on your birthday this year - but at least Ike will bring some adventure with him!

we love you, Lilly.

Daddy (and Mommy)

    Oh NO! I'm sorry to hear this, but at least you will be safe.

    My Great Aunt lives in Shreveport. I think you guys would really love her. Maybe she's close to where you'll be?

    We're thinking about you!

    She's walking?!?! Oh I am so sad that I can't make it to Shreveport for her birthday. Those darn contractions ruin everything! :-) Glad y'all made it safely out of Texas!

    Glad you all were able to get out and are safe! This will be a memory for sure she'll have fun hearing about when she's a bit older.. I can here it now... Dad tell the story again of mom and I being Hurricane honey's... :)

    miss you all...

    Shannon and Jojo,
    Still thinking about ya'll all the time, wondering if you're okay. Our company just left today, so I will be freed up a little. Our phone has also been down, but thankfully, it's back up and running. Let me know when is a good time to call. Miss you all and I'm praying!
