Hello Blogging Family!
Well it has been a very interesting and event filled weekend for our family. With a good event but also with a bad event. First let me tell you about the first event.
Two of my nieces went to their Senior Prom on Thursday. The prom is the culmination of a youth’s years in High School. This is a milestone event in every youth’s life.
One niece is 17 and the other niece is 16 (graduating a year early!)
And it was
everything that a prom should be! I
know that you read my previous blog post titled “Girl, Where Are Your Parents” which talked about the custom made prom dress that a young lady in Texas tried to wear to her Senior Prom, which ultimately got her arrested.
I am so proud of my nieces for this accomplishment, especially my youngest niece for her achievement of graduating AN ENTIRE YEAR EARLY!! That is an awesome accomplishment!
So I just wanted to share with you the dresses that
my nieces wore to their prom!
Don’t they look fabulous!
Now for the other event. My youngest niece accidentally left the curling iron on, and you can guess what happened next…
On Friday morning or early Friday afternoon my niece woke to a room full of flames! Yes, the room was on fire. My sister tried to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher and with buckets of water but it was too much. Everyone did get out of the house ok. The firefighters got there and did what they do best. Busted out the windows, and put out the fire. The bedroom which is in the attic has extensive water damage and blackened walls but the fire could have been much worse. My sister had to go to the doctor Friday evening for smoke inhalation but other than that everyone is physically fine. My niece is very scared and shook up and I dare say feeling quite guilty. She and I talked for a little while after the fire and I tried to assure her that accidents happen and I also tried to impress upon her that the important thing is that no one was hurt. The girl was a shaking scared mess. And no matter how much we talk to her I am sure that she will live with this for quite a while. My niece lost all of her clothes and stuff but she still has her life, and that is what counts.
My mother’s insurance should cover the damages and Servpro came in to start their clean up job. Since it is a holiday weekend the insurance guys won’t be out for their assessment until Tuesday. Did I say that my sister and her kids live with my mother? Yes, in preparation for our upcoming move my sister and her kids moved in with my mother to save money until we go. So My mother and my sister and her kids had to spend 3 nights in a hotel because Servpro had to run these big industrial fans and dehumidifiers for a few days to dry out the water.
So any way we will wait to see what the insurance people say on Tuesday. Did I mention that a realator is supposed to come by this week to see my mom’s house so that she can sell before we move… yea this should be fun…
I have no pictures, when I got the call the last thing on my mind was grabbing the camera. I’m sure you understand! I thank God for our blessings and our lives!
So, that is how our weekend went. How was yours?
