Happy Thanksgiving

We had quite an eventful day today. Billy got up bright and early and went to spend some quality time with Grandma. They are feeding her real food now, so she had grits, eggs and coffee this morning. They are still planning to send her home maybe on Tuesday. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and an awesome time with your families. God Bless.

Thanksgiving & Other Stuff

-It's been a long time, so there's SO much to say. Both boys are currently taking a break from baseball right now for a few weeks. Regular Dixie Youth season will pick up again around February or March. Whew . . . it's been a long baseball season. Billy and I are so proud of both boys.
-Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I've had to take a new look at this holiday and learn to enjoy it for what it is. Billy and I are both from divorced families and it makes it hard to see everyone during the holidays and spend equal time with each family, but we do the best that we can without running ourselves out. We enjoy our time with each family and we've decided that we will go to Aunt Donna's at Noon and visit with the Frye family for a little while. Then we're off to Aunt Renee and Uncle Jim's around 2 to visit with the Chavis family for a little while. Then we're heading to our land around 5 so that we can visit with Billy's mom, sister and some of his family for a while. We will pack it all in and I'm sure we'll have a great time. I particularly want to be sure that I visit the Chavis side for a while for Mama. She lost her baby brother (my Uncle Edwin) a few months ago and it was very traumatic for her. She has also been pretty sick with her lung infection, but she's finally starting to feel like herself again and I want to give her all the time with the boys that she wants.
-Please continue to pray for Billy's Grandma. She's still in the hospital. It's been several months now. She's so ready to come home. They still have her on the vent. Like Billy said, possibly the hardest part is that we know her mind works 100% and it's hard to see her like this. She's such a strong woman. She and Billy have this special bond . . . when Billy goes to visit her, she lights up and is always glad to see him. The boys haven't been able to see her since she was admitted months ago. They miss her. The family is talking about getting her ready to come home, but there are a few kinks to be worked out. Hopefully she will be home soon.
-I will be Christmas shopping on Friday (Black Friday) for those of you who may see me out. I'll have on my serious shopping face, but please speak if you see me. I usually meet up w/ Michelle at one store if not more and we speak for a few minutes. Happy shopping and I'll blog sooner . . . I promise!
