Where have I been?

Sorry for no posts for so long!!!

These last few months have been really busy for us. In September my dad, who had pancreatic cancer, took a turn for the worse and was under hospice care, but staying with friends. Although he was with friends, I visited him most every day. He decided that he would like to be with us for his final time on earth, so we moved him in with us in October. It was an adjustment for us, but we knew that this was what we were called to do at this time in our lives. We are so glad we were able to give him a comfortable, loving place to be at the end of his life. We were able to spend time together, have good conversations, and most importantly, he was able to spend time on a daily basis with his only grandchild, my daughter Elizabeth. His life came to an end on November 8. Here is a picture of Elizabeth and her "grandaddy", as he wanted to be called.
Elizabeth's 1st Birthday party was on November 14. I am so blessed with wonderful friends who volunteered to help with the food given the week that we were dealing with. It really made her party much easier! Then the holidays hit!

Thanksgiving in Knoxville, Tn to visit Daniel's parents and then back to Nashville for Daniel's extended family Thanksgiving.

Christmas in Oklahoma City with my mom and step dad, Bob. While we were there, we experienced a blizzard with full "white-out" conditions! Once the winds died down, we were able to play outside. This was Elizabeth's first experience with snow!
She loved it!
Until she fell face first in it!

Now that the end of Janurary is coming to an end, I'm hoping to get caught up!
