Mitchell's First Game

Mitchell played his first 7th grade football game today. His team won 27-6. They played Space Center Intermediate. He did a great job. Made some really good tackles as Corner and great blocks as Full Back. He got the ball a couple times getting a few yards with the run. His number is 32, same number as CHARLES SCOTT (Tiger Full Back for you NON-TIGER FANS)!!!! GEAUX TIGERS & BULLDOGS!

Now on to the puppy....We have another picture of my two little babies!

Another Jefferies Boy!!!!

OK, before you guys all freak out! NO, we are not having another baby...BETTER...we got a puppy. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, we had to put our Cocker Spaniel down in May b/c of cancer. Well, I have been looking for just the right replacement and I found him. Mitchell, Drew, and I met the owner in Cleveland, Texas yesterday to pick him up. He is a Sable/White party color Cocker Spaniel. We have named him Beignet...Those of you that are reading my blog NOT from Louisiana, you pronouce it (BEN-YEA)....It's a french powdered biscuit...Very sweet, just like the puppy. The boys are beside themselves with joy....Joe, not so much!

Muscle Man

While going through my camera looking at pictures, I came across this one of Mitchell. He and Spencer must have been goofing off! I don't think Muscle and Fitness will be calling us any time soon!

Hurricane Ike Pictures

This slide show is a mixture of pictures from the hotel where we stayed, a friend's sister's house (Thanks Laura) where we ate post evacuation, and after the hurricane when we had people over for a feast.

Houston...We Had A Problem

We survived IKE! Here's the story since I've not had good phone reception and haven't been able to update my Louisiana friends.....

We found out on Wednesday that we would not have school on Thursday or Friday. After school on Wednesday, I went to Home Depot and bought a generator (Thank GOD)...We had intentions of staying home through the storm. Thursday afternoon we changed our mind. We got a hotel in far North Houston to ride it out. The storm surge really had us scared.

Friday, when the hurricane hit, we lost power AND water in the hotel at about 2:30 a.m. That was the worse part of the entire ordeal. One bed, three kids and a dog with no plumbing! On a side note...there were three yapping little poodles next to us, so my smart little kids decided to ask their owners if they had seen our had escaped from it's cage....Fortunately, we did not hear those stupid dogs again! Score one for the Jefferies boys! BTW, we don't own a python!

On Saturday morning I wanted to try and get home. We had absolutely no trouble getting back home.

Our house.....VERY LUCKY....Just a few fence sections down and our trampoline was tossed into our neighbors yard. My gutters are clanking, but that's so minor considering what everyone else is going through.

What upsets me most is I bought tons of meat from Don's in Lafayette on the way back from the LSU game right before GUSTAV...We fed all of our friends awesome stuffed porkchops....We ate like kings for several nights. I don't want to grill for quite some time!

It was difficult finding a gas station open, but I did and waited in line with everyone else. A friend of mine witnessed a fist fight! Our power came on Tuesday night, just in time for me to see the season finale of Big Brother.

Things are slowly getting back to normal. We are out of school this week while the district tries to repair the schools that were damaged. All is good...Tigers won! My Family is safe...can't ask for more!
