Good Morning my crafty friends!  I just want to give a little update on whats happening in my life and why you haven't been seeing much of me.  As some of you know, I am dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Issac who graced us with his presence on the evening of Tuesday, August 28th and stayed for a three day visit.  With that being said our area was hit pretty hard.  My home town of Lafitte still has flood waters in some areas.  Although I no longer live in Lafitte my dad, my brother and other family members still do.  At my house, I suffered minor damages compared to others, wind driven rain through both my front and back doors, my cabinets in my kitchen got a bit wet, my shed doors didn't fare so well and my front gate came crashing down.  We were out of power for 6 days so needless to say I lost the stuff in my fridge.  All and all the my loss was minimal compared to some.  I am thankful all of my family is safe and we are able to pick up the pieces and move on.  I am back at work and almost completely finished cleaning up around my house.  I actually got into my craft room last night and started picking up in there.  Needless to say since it is the spare room, anything that had to be moved during the storm was put in there.  I actually was able to make some headway last night and am hoping to finish up tonight and planning a craft day with my Mommy on Sunday!  Woo Hoo!
On another note, the Friday before Issac, August 24, 2012 we welcomed my newest Grandson, Cayden James Duhon born to my son, Christopher and his lovely sweetheart, Ashley.  Cayden weighed 8# 7oz and was 20 inches long.  He is a handsome little fellow (I'm not biased at all! LOL)!

This pic does him no justice.  He was still in the hospital.  He is a good mixture of his parents but reminds me so much of his dad when he was born. 

Today is my oldest Grandson, Brayden's 7th Birthday.  Oddly enough, he was born 9 days following Hurricane Katrina, while we were in Texas evacuated.  Happy Birthday Brayden, Nana loves you!

So in the mist of all this chaos, we have some bright moments!  Thank you, Lord for providing for me and my family in our time of need!  God is Wonderful!!!!

On a totally different note, I am up to 283 followers!!!!!  Only 17 more to go to reach my goal of 300 and I will be giving away my blog candy!   For more info CLICK HERE!!!!!

I want to thank each and everyone of you for being so supportive through my time of need!  And thanks for continuing to follow me even when I don't post all the time.  I am hoping to be back on track next week!!!!
