Great Gran

As an update to my post from last night, I received word this morning that my Great Gran passed away late last night. I rejoice that she is home with the Lord, but our family will definitely feel her loss. Please pray for our family Friday at the funeral, and throughout the holidays as we celebrate the first ones without my dad and Great Gran. Thanks so much for the love and prayers!

Adorable puppy, she is...

When Mike and I were picking out our Halloween costumes for a party we're going to, we found this...Mike insisted we get Duchess another costume, and I have to say, it's pretty funny...

(She's Yoda, in case you can't tell!)

My Great Gran

First of all, let me apologize for being such a blog neglector...I know you all missed me so much!

Anyway, I would love for all of you to keep my family in your prayers. My great grandma, affectionately known as "Great Gran" is not doing well, and it looks as though she may be in the end stages of her life. She is 99 years old, and will be 100 in December! Her body has started shutting down in the past few weeks, and the Hospice nurse said she thinks it might only be a few days. I went to see her last Wednesday and after seeing the condition she is in, I pray that the Lord takes her home to Him soon so she doesn't have to suffer. I know she is ready to be reunited with lots of special people.

That being said, losing her will be a huge loss for our family, especially if it happens before Thanksgiving. The Smith side of the family gets together every year at Thanksgiving, and it is already going to be hard without my Dad, since we lost him in June. Also, my poor Grandpa will have lost 2 sons and 2 brothers, and now his mom...say an extra prayer for strength for my grandpa as he might have to perform another family member's funeral. I appreciate all the prayers! Below is a picture of Great Gran and me from Thanksgiving last year...isn't she cute??

Isn't she cute??

When I was grocery shopping this weekend, I saw the cutest fall doggie scarf and just had to get it! Duch looks so cute, and she actually doesn't mind it they way she does her Halloween costume or other clothes! See what you think...

My lil' bro and sis

I took Friday off work to spend some time with my little brother and sister. I went to eat lunch with Danielle at school; she's now 13 and in 8th grade! I got to meet her friends and it was really fun! Later that night Danielle, the kids' mom Chrystine and I went to watch Nathan march in the Frisco High School band. My little brother Nathan is 15 and a sophomore. He plays the trumpet and his band is really good! It was fun, and great to see the kids! I can't believe how big they're getting...Nathan is at least 6 feet tall and Danielle isn't too far behind! Here's some pics of me and the kids!
