November Remembers...

November 2011 - We welcomed "Grandpa Bob" into our family.  A random walk down bath house row in Hot Springs, a casual conversation with a complete stranger, and before we knew it - an angel added to our family and celebrating Thanksgiving with us at our table!

December 2011 - Grandpa Bob - formerly grandchildless.... spends an evening listening to the oohhs and ahhs of everyone at the Holiday light display - "What a beautiful group of grandkids you have!"  Proud as a peacock of each and everyone of them.  Known to carry multiple pictures of them to show everyone met!  Grandpa Bob's "Super 8".


March 2011 - Easter Celebration.  Grandpa Bob, now fully one of us, celebrates the promise of Life with our family. A beautiful family day, smoked turkey, easter eggs and the biggest basket of chocolate bunnies we had ever seen!

May 2011- Ice cream, pizza and soccer with Grandpa Bob.  A guided tour around his hometown to show us off.  Gigi the wonderdog by his side.  A ride in his hotrod (1957 style!)  All around a perfect day!

Nom-Noms = Yum-Yums

November 2012 - A doctor's visit, a fatal diagonisis, a whirlwind of preparation, a tearful "see you later" and  4 short weeks later -  our angel celebrates Thanksgiving at Jesus' table... 

We grieve and rejoice - what a gift we were given!

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.  Hebrews 13:2
