A busy Monday

Monday was Grandpa Gruesbeck's funeral. Lots of tears were shed. It was nice to hear stories about Grandpa I had never heard. He sure loved his family. He will be deeply missed but we can rejoice that he is pain free and with our Lord. Continue to pray for Grandma as they were married for 67 years and I'm sure she is missing him.

On Monday night our church had a Christmas by candle light dinner. It's for the ladies in the church. My mom did a table last year and it turned out nice. So this year we sponsored a table together. We picked a theme of blue, silver and white along with snowflakes. The idea is to create a table with lots of candles. We had finger foods and desserts and ate by candle light. We also had a couple come in named Bob and Becky Brunton and put on a Christmas concert. It was so nice to sit and relax and soak up the music. It was a nice ending to a very emotional and busy day. We are already planning our table for next year!!
