Halloween was busier than we anticipated, but we had a great night making our rounds! We started off in our new neighborhood with the mom's dressing up as princesses and celebrating with the kids. One of my friends had a dress I wore for Belle - didn't have time to go all out, but it was fun! Then we headed over to our old neighborhood for our annual group pict and chili night! We made a few rounds there and Cooper was really into trick or treating! However, he thought you ate each piece of candy before going to the next door! ha! After that we headed back to our way and stopped by our friends house the Grants to see Cooper's lil' buddy Anderson. After a long fun night we headed down to see Grandmother - that was her first night in hospice care so we wanted to see her too!

A lovely lady!

My sweet Grandmother went to heaven last night! I have no doubt that she was hand in hand with Granddaddy as Jesus welcomed her home. She was 92.  Grandmother was a woman of grace, she had unbelievable strength and always showed unconditional love. She made the best homemade biscuits, mashed potatoes and pound cake you've ever tasted. She has 3 children, 5 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. I'm so blessed with the memories we have of her and our time together. We will miss Grandmother dearly, but know she is free of pain and full of His love in heaven!
