Thanksgiving 09

So we're a little late posting from Thanksgiving, but hey at least we got some done. We had the regular day of daddy hunting, going to Grammy & PawPaw's for lunch and then to my mom & dad's for dinner. We were hoping that Granny Jane & Grandaddy Keith (Betsy's parents) were gonna be able to come up this year, but unfortunately Granny wasn't feeling up to making the trip. Unfortunately about a week & 1/2 later Granny passed away in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. She had a fall the night before, and then Grandaddy Keith told Betsy that when he went in to check on her he "couldn't rouse her up". She had been going through a rough time of chemo treatments and getting blood and platelets sometimes 2 times a week, and I think her body was just exhausted. She's in a much better place now, and Betsy says she's probably up there with Jean(David's mom) and they're introducing her to my grandma too :) It's always good to think of them up there with each other. Her and Grandaddy Keith had been married for over 60 years, and I can't imagine losing the one person you've been with that long, but he knows she's much better off.

Landon tries everything at night to get out of going to bed. When I went to find him, he was downstairs watching "fugall" w/ dad and informed me that he couldn't sleep yet. He's gonna give us a run for our money!
