The Stegent Family.. Before, During and After IKE!!!


Better late than never right?! Well, for those of you who don't know this already. We are okay, and very lucky that all we got from IKE was a bunch a rain and awesome neighbors that we love oh so much. Below are some pictures of the storms wrath on our neioghbors Jennifer and Jaime with their two boys, Hayden and Harrison's house.

These are better known as Kaden's boys!! lol. He just loves these guys!This was the Hayden and Harrisons Lewis' home after the hurricane!! Crazy!!!

What's funny about the whole thing is that we were soo consumed with all the excitement, we TOTALLY forgot to take any pictures of the whole event. So, thanks to all of you who have or will donate them to me.. LOL. But this one was taken by me..

Eating Daddy's BBQ Saturday after the storm!!

Okay, so you have seen some of the pictures. Let me tell you about the experience. If you were here, you understand that you don't mess around when preparing for a major hurricane! And by no means did we do that, but we did have to make some last minute decisions. And one of those last minute decisions was that my husband and I decided it was best to stay home rather than splitting up and one eventually meeting with the rest of the family in Tyler. Though we knew we were missing a beautiful wedding, we just couldn't chance being apart, and we just couldn't chance getting stuck in traffic! By the way.... Congrats Cody and Rachael Perdue.. We love you!! Needless to say, it was a good thing we did stay home because my front right tire and my spare tire of my car were in no shape to be driven on. Especially when there was a chance we could have been on the road for a while. Thanks be to God for protecting us on that one too!

This is Hayden helping his dad, Charlie, Scott and Carlos clean up. Talk about a team effort!!

Anyway. My other cousin Erin, her daughter Kaitlyn, and Kaitlyn's daddy Kenny all decided to stay here because they had to evacuate from the Clear Lake area. Though it was trying at times, I am so thankful that we were able to protect them under better circumstances than most people can say. We love you guys! Here is a picture of the kids at Lowe's on Friday before the storm. That was fun!! ;)

Okay, I am officially tired! I will write more on this story soon!!

xoxo to all who read!
