Boy I feel like the song by Brittany Spears... "Hit me baby one more time" Seriously, we just keep getting hit and hit! This is Justin's Grandma and he's doing better. She was the only one left on his moms side so it's bitter sweet. His Grandpa died over 10 years ago so they both have been waiting a long time to see each other again. But still our heart aches that we don't get to see her for awhile. I feel bad because I should have aked her about her favorite memories when she was a kid and her favorite recipie; now we'll never know.

I'm kinda stressed cause the funeral is tomorrow and that was the day I was going to take my mom out for her Birthday cause her b-day is on wed (beckhams surgery day). I know that we can do it this weekend, but I wanted Beckham to be well and happy for her day. Also I'm worried that Beckham isn't going to make it though the funeral. We have to be there from like 11:45-6:00! Pray that he'll be the best 2yr. old ever! :)

Here is one of may favorite pictures of "gama margie" and Beckham together

I'm so sorry about your loss. It's always hard when someone you love passes away, but so neat to know that she can now be reunited with her love. If there is anything I can do to help out, let me know!

Hang in there! Sounds like it is "pouring" at your house. I'm so sorry. If I can help you out in anyway, just holler.

Please tell Justin that I'm sorry his Grandma died.
I haven't looked at your blog in a long time. Very nice pictures. One of these days you'll have to show me some simple steps to make simple scrap book pages. The ones you did of Grandpa are incredible.
Hope all goes well with Beckham.
