Thanksgiving 2009

video

To say it's been a crazy week would be an understatement.

My father in law passed away this week.  It's been tough, but there's still been some good times.  Jilly and Mickey, my mother in law, cooked the most amazing thanksgiving meal today.  The kids played outside some.  That's Riley and Asher wrestling on the trampoline, and Tucker wearing a wrestling hoody.  Tonight, Jilly opened her new board game based on the Twilight movie (pictured).  We played it together with Molly and some of the kids while sitting on the den floor.  Mitch called about the beef we're buying from him.  He offered us his largest one so we should get maybe 100 more pounds of meat this year.  Jilly and I have been working on a video tribute to her dad. 

Daniel got into some kind of altercation with a pit bull and ended up having surgery on his foot.  He's gonna be fine, no permanent injuries.  We went to see him at the hospital.  He should be discharged tomorrow.

Our friend Diana has arranged for the Patriot Guard to mobilize for Papaw's funeral.  The funeral will be this Saturday.  The Patriot Guard is a group of motorcyclists who go to funerals to help honor veterans.  They escort the funeral procession with American Flags on the backs of thier bikes. 

My heart goes out to our friend Mike who's brother passed away this morning.  We love you.

My parents are driving over from Memphis tomorrow.  It's always nice to see them.

We have tons of friends, both local and online.  You may be one of them.  Thank you for praying for us.  You are a huge encouragement.

Tough times, but we'll make it.  It isn't easy, but we'll stick together and help each other through.

Even in tough times, good times are still here. 

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody.

God Bless,
Dadofmykids.
