What do you do during a hurricane?

Nehemiah does wear pants...sometimes :) The good thing is, he found himself a coat :)

The older boys played Timothy's travel chess game he got from Grandma and Grandpa.
Rebekah and Josiah were "teaching Sunday School :)"

There was a group playing a game
And Noah told me he was teaching Susannah and Nehemiah how to read...that's pretty good since he can't read himself yet :)
Little guy waits out the storm with a nice long nap
But mainly we just watch the storm...from the patio
Or if it gets too windy, we watch from the couch...on top of Daddy :)
The eye of the storm has just made land, but it hit a bit lower than was predicted which keeps us about 70 miles from the eye. So far, it hasn't been to bad! The Lord is answering prayer. Daniel just stopped by to visit the people from our church at the shelter, and they are all doing well. Just bored...so he brought them some soda and chips :)


  1. Praise the Lord that you're safe, so far, and that things are looking good for you. I pray that it stays that way.

  2. Looks like you all are very occupied and riding it out having a lot of fun. I am glad it is going around you all. Thank God for answered prayers.

  3. I think your family is the only family that makes enduring a hurricane look like a fun time!! :) I know it's not really fun (at least for the adults) because there is worry, and there is a lot to pray for--so I am praying for the safety of your town and your family, and I hope that the hurricane ends up just being a little rain and wind and nothing else!
    P.S. How have you been feeling? has that icky morning sickness been staying away? I hope so!

  4. Thank you for the update...glad things are good so far. We're still praying :o) i love to see all of the children lined up like that...it makes me smile!
    Trusting in Him,
    Katie G.

  5. praying for you guys! Thinking of you constantly.

    Love you,

  6. I am praying for your family now. Rebekah and Josiah remind me of me when I was young, I would do the same!! Later on, To grow up and be able to teach "real" little ones : ) Looks like their in training! We know how it is to weather out a storm... so enjoy the beauty as we pray for your safety.

  8. My girls and I have been watching your posts to follow the hurricane and our family has been praying for yours. We are so thankful it didn't get too close to home. Missy Morgan and Katie in Cleveland, TN

  9. Dear Janie, It is late Saturday night now and I'm hoping that all is well with your family and the storm passed on. I have just gone back over the past few posts...love the pictures, can't believe Timothy is already 12! Wow! On your long post of Oct 1 sharing your heart re family planning...Well said! Thank you for sharing that all may read and be encourage. Blessings, Aunt Linda

  10. I have been following your blog for a while and praying for you. You are an inspiration to me. We are ajusting to life with baby number eight. Your family is so beautiful and I am super excited that you are expecting number 12!! God's blessings upon you, your congregation and town during the storm. We are praying for your safety.

  11. Yes I prayed for you too!! So glad all is relatively well!!

  12. board??? -- you mean bored.
    Nevertheless, I'm thankful the Lord protected you through the storm. The pictures were priceless. Your children seem so calm. Are they always that way?

  13. What does Jaynee do doing a hurricane? Takes lots of pictures and plans her next blog. :) Anyway, Cuidad Constitucion was on the news this morning. Glad you're safe.

  14. Jaynee,
    I read often but I do not think I have ever commented. Your family is truly amazing. I would like to ask for your prayers for my daughter and her family. Their house burned to the ground on Sept. 23. They have lost everything. They are in Northern California and I am in Texas and feel very helpless. Please keep them in your prayers as they rebuild. Their blog is myfourbundlesofjoy.blogspot. Thank you.

  15. Suzannanana~ I will certainly pray for your daughter. I can imagine how you must feel being so far away. I will pray that the Lord will give them strength, comfort, and peace as they go through this trial as only He can. I will to their blog and leave them a comment there as well.
