The babysitter is back

We have power!! The children did a happy jumping power dance and ran around flipping on lights. Then they asked for tv and to play Mario Kart. They are so sweetly quiet as Backyardigans plays in the background. Ah, tv. Most of our freezer items were saved by my friend. We'll probably lose a few things on the freezer door, but really we were inconvenienced and not much else. We're safe, our house is safe, and all is well after the storm.

Here is an update for all of our friends and family in the west. Areas of Mamaroneck are being evacuated as a result of Hurricane Irene. We are in a safe zone and thankfully in a position with our basement to shelter some friends who are in the evacuation zone. We have a propane stove (thanks mom and dad), canned food (and a non electric can opener), water, flashlights and an car insurance policy that covers hurricanes. All devices are charged to the fullest, but if lines are knocked down we don't know when we can communicate. We'll keep you updated as long as possible. Right now we are pretty prepared to weather the storm. Love to you all.

Playing with the New Phone

Dawnell and I picked up new android telephones a couple of weeks ago.  They both have pretty nice cameras on them, and I was excited to see that there is a blogger app, so now we can even blog on the go. 

I was trying the settings on my camera the other day, and Beckett didn't like the idea of being a dot person. I got one of him anyway, so take that.  And as you can see, the twins are starting to smile pretty regularly, which is cute and precious and etc. etc. etc.
