Finally a chance to catch up! First, fire pictures

We have a lot of pictures of the fire, but some are hard to see. All of these were taken on various days between August 29-31.

Taken from the backyard:

Fire-retardant dropping aircraft.

Water-dropping helicopter. These went RIGHT over our house for several days.

Remember, all the ones in the backyard are taken in mid-day. When the sun is nice and bright. Does that help put the darkness in perspective?

Taken from the sunroom window:

Later in the evening.

All is calm now, the kids are back in school, and I'll be there soon. We're finally getting back into a routine (though a VERY busy one!) We are so thankful for all the prayers from around the country. I have no doubt that they supported the firefighters, and helped to keep homes and people safe.


  1. Oh my word! That fire is soooo close to your house. I can't even imagine . . .

  2. We are so glad that your home was not damaged. It was so weird to see the mountain without trees when we were at your home for A. J.'s baptism. Grateful that the fire had left your area so that all 9 of us could stay in your lovely new home.

  3. Oh my. I'm so glad you're ok. I hadn't checked your blog in awhile. I'm glad your home is ok as well.


Let us know what you think! We love hearing your thoughts on our fun and crazy life!
