Dad and I - the best thing to be thankful for!
Dad and Dick.
Mom and daughter-in-law Kim.
Grandpa and son Chad. Thank you Chad and Kim for putting this day together. It was wonderful.
After dinner, we pulled into the drive at daughter Amanda's home. The kids came out to see Great-Grandpa and some even crawled right into the car! Dad with little Caroline, he just loves to hold her.
Amanda climbed over the front seats to get to Grandpa and Grandma.
Son-in-law Greg and our Gannon! Gannon was the first one to the car with big hugs for everyone.
Then it was time to go back and a quiet sadness came over Dad. Dick did get him to race with the wheelchairs before we had to leave. I held his hand and we talked about what we had to be thankful for, we shed a few tears, and made promises to see each other tomorrow. It was a blessed day, to be able to spend the afternoon away from the nursing home and together.
Now, tomorrow it's time to get back to work! Our annual tree lighting is at 6 p.m. across from the shop. Then on Saturday and Sunday our annual Dicken's Festival gets in full swing. If you've never been to Holly to experience this, come on down! There will be entertainment from 1-6 on both Saturday and Sunday (for 3 weekends). The merchants and volunteers have worked very hard to keep this going in these hard economic times. Stroll the streets of Holly, take a romantic carriage ride, browse through our unique shops, have an intimate lunch and come see me at Holly Hills Primitives!
Bless you all on this Thanksgiving night!
Until next time...
