Jett got a chance to meet his buds for a playdate during "Evacuation 08." Can you believe all of these boys...from the left Rachel and Bishop(4 weeks), Holly and Boyd(5 months), Amanda and Max(4 months), Jett and Mom(5 weeks.) The girls still talk about all of the same things... boys(only smaller and balder), drinks(bottles vs. formula and various applicable quantities,) the coolest new jeans (size 3-6 months,) weight and diets(but now bigger is actualy better and eating alot is a good thing.) Good Times!-Tori

Wow. So it took me about 30 minutes to figure out how to log back into this thing to actually post a blog. So now that I'm finally here, let me waste no time in bringing everyone up to speed. We have been seeking refuge from GUSTAV for the past several days in Monroe at Victoria's mother's home. From what I hear the storm has absolutely blasted Baton Rouge and most of the city is without electricity and probably will be for a couple of weeks. LSU closed for the whole week thus far. (We should seriously get Labor Day over!) Our house is okay though, no shingles missing from what I'm told and the fact that I have been too lazy to build a fence or plant any trees has served me well. Pretty hard to blow away what you didn't have to begin with! There's a lesson for the three little pigs! Anyway, it has given me a chance to get close to the family and the in-laws. Really close. You know that whole thing about 'after 4 days you've worn out your welcome'. Well, if you stick around long enough, you wear it back in and you just basically live together and that's the way it is. The great thing is that it has given me a chance to attend a few high school football games. Northern Louisiana is like West Texas in terms of high school football and I have to admit the game is seriously elevated in these parts. To be honest, the players aren't really any bigger than your typical Sanford football team, but they move and execute plays like a BCS bowl team. Seriously, its a big deal here. Hopefully the rain will let up so they won't cancel the upcoming showdown this weekend..Rustin vs Neville. I'm already getting excited. We have Bastrop (#6 team in the nation) right down the road, and I already watched the West Monroe Rebels (ESPN highlighted them in their mini series last year) this past Saturday night. Anyway, my little boys enjoyed it immensely. Beck is a big fan of the concession stand and loves to run, throw the ball and give the mascots high fives. Anyway, I figured I needed to bring everyone up to date since I noticed I was 'ranked' number one in the listing of family on Mom's new blog...(yes girls, thats an actual ranking depending on alot of different factors but primarily it comes down to how cool you are and whether or not you still look good in a bathing suit...have fun competing for the number two spot, they don't call it the biggest loser for nothing!) Anyway try to keep up and thanks for all of the positive encouragement about keeping my blog up to date and up to speed. Speaking of speed, here is the 'bring you up to date since Jett was born blast'...Jett is now like 5 1/2 weeks and weighs about 13 pounds, he's starting to get colicky and isn't very fun from about 5 until midnight. Beck is a superstar and had a big birthday party on Sunday even though his real birthday is about three more weeks away, Victoria is losing her mind nursing a baby and putting up with me and Beck and living here at her moms for the week and I am pretty much coasting this week and trying to stay out of everyones way and last week I did that lemonade diet, only I only did it for like 5 days instead of ten because the "hurrican messed me up" but I actually lost like 8 pounds during that time and even though I look about the same, I feel alot better and I slept like an absolute baby the whole time I was doing it even though it was really irritating to just drink lemonade everyday and I think Dad should do it for 10 days and see how well it makes him sleep at night. And I think that's pretty much it and I'll try and get some pics posted soon. I've gotten alot better looking in the past month and am really anxious to prove it. I'll be right back!
