Where has the time gone??

So sorry everyone for not posting anything on this blog in quite some time. Life has been a crazy ride. Well we lost our last beloved grandparent in May and that was hard to take. She was battling Alhzeimer's, and pneumonia and towards the end it was so hard to see her in those conditions. The Lord called her home to join our other grandparents.  I'm sure she's up in heaven watching over us and drinking her strong coffee. We talk about her often while we're cooking and she was such a a great cook. She wasn't the type to write down her recipes and there are tons of recipes that were lost with her.  Gosh it even hurts to think about that. But at least we know she's not suffering anymore...... Although the holiday season hasn't hit. I'm sure there will be lots of tears shed once Christmas comes, because that was her favorite holiday. She put up decorations every year, without even thinking twice. This will be the first Christmas without her, I can already tell its going to be hard on everyone.
This is her at her 86th Birthday party. We made her a scrapbook with 4 pages for each of her children. She was so happy to see what we created with all those photos that were tucked away in a box for years!!

Were so grateful for all the memories we shared with her. And this was a special day. Were so happy she was able to see this scrapbook and enjoy it for a couple years before she passed away.  We miss you grandma and you will always have a special place in all of our hearts!
