At Approximately 8:00 PM on Sunday, Dec 19th, we were evacuated. The flames had come over the crest of the mountain behind our home and, aided by the strong wind, was quickly approaching the the line of homes on our street. By the time we got to our home, police and fire officials were announcing mandatory evacuations. We had approx 5 minutes to get what we needed and to get home. The next day around 3:00 we were permitted to return home and from these photos you can see just how lucky we were! Thanks for all of your support and concern!
Here is a link to some more pictures of the fire.

Elizabeth was baptised this last month (May 22, 2010). What a special day for her and our family!! I am so proud of her and the good choices she is making. I can not believe how fast she is growing up......can someone stop time from marching on?
