Thank you all for such kind sentiments regarding the passing of both Big Daddy's grandfather and my father in law last week. Despite the loss, we were determined to celebrate their lives and know they would want us to continue on with plans. Therefore we did! We had our annual Thanksgiving celebration, hosted my my cousins Michael and Christie.
As always, they out did themselves...and as always I outdid myself with the seconds of food :)
After lunch, my family drove to Indiana to be with Big Daddy's side of the family and attend the funeral of his grandfather. We did get to spend some time with family up there, that we don't get to see often enough. Grandma is doing remarkably well. I am sure in the days to come, it will be more difficult, but his illness was one in which his passing is considered a blessing. He has the ultimate Thanksgiving, that I am certain.
Here is a look at our Thanksgiving celebration!...
Where we spent quality time with the Bratina bunch....
Well actually before the crack of dawn....
but in everything there is something to benefit.
Like this beautiful show, that I would have missed had I slept in....
We got home JUST in time to watch the ball game.
And the Tide ROLLED.
It was a game, well played by both teams.
This week, I cannot wait to show/tell you about my time spent with the "Man in RED"
Aka, "The Big Man"
But for now....I am exhausted!
