Back in the day...

I know this will get me in the dog house. But, I truly believe its worth it. I don't know why she's bugging. She was a cute little girl that turned into a beautiful woman. Inside & out.

Aaaawwwww...... What else is there to say?

Oh yea! Brandi rocking the SKATING RINK! What music is playing? Styx? Jefferson Starship? Survivor? Olivia Newton John? Foriegner? Rick Springfield?

Appearantly, Brandi was quite the little dancer! Nice crown. Not the last time you'll see her in a crown!

Now my turn. This is the first dance Brandi and I went to together! Homecoming EAHS '89. Yes, Gered sporting the Z. Cavaricci's and vest with some rope tie. Bollo? Brandi with the black suede skirt.

This is Brandi's EAHS '92 Senior Prom picture. I was on the Submarine, so she went with my cousin. Can't miss the Senior Prom cause of a boyfriend.

Ladies and Gentlemen! I present to you The 1992 Ms. Gonzales Jambalaya Queen: Brandi Cox!!! We had to put off the wedding until her REIGN ended. The Queen can't be married, you know...

Here's our engagement pic we posted in The Advocate. Cool tidal wave on my head, huh?

Christmas pic of me and Brandi while we lived in Seattle. Brandi had some cool green contact lenses that you can't see too well on the iPhone camera.

Brandi's LSU graduation picture. 4.0GPA in Accounting classes. Girl gots smarts.

Hurricane Gustav

Killing time before we lost power: What's in the box?


Jada ain't skeeeerd! She's all up in 50mph winds. 2 of those huge Pecan trees in the background fell while we were weather watching. Cool sound when a huge tree falls.

House did fine through storm. Good ole OSB on garage openings and LOTS of silicone caulking on windows and doors.

Above: Two trees down to far left. One on our lot, the other on Grandmaw White's. Big Pecan tree down on far right blocked the driveway.

Lots of limbs. Center top is Pecan in driveway.

Another shot of big Oak splitting in Grandma's yard.

Wind picking up. Jada hanging on for dear life!!!
