It's wasn't really the Christmas we where hoping for!
The morning of the 24th we got a call that our grandfather had past away.
The last few weeks he was getting sicker, but the last few days before Christmas it when very bad with him, we thought he would make Christmas, but it wend a bit faster.
He past away in his sleep, so he didn't had any pain, thankfully.
DH and grandfather had a special relation, so it's very hard on him.
Grandfather turned 93 this past summer, and still living on his one...He was a wonderfull men and we will mis him just like we mis grandmother (who past away last year!!
Also Noah was very ill the whole Christmas, he had a high fever and a ugly cough
Here a pictures of how he spend Christmas:Thankfully is all better now, and playing and laughing again
Yesterday we had the cremation of grandfather, it was a very beautifull ceremonie.
It's so strange that there now both gone!!
It was a lot of walking for me at the cremation, last night and today it's not going that well with me I have a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions (harde buiken).. so I'm doing nothing today..
The whole week I haven't done a lot of crafting. I only have done a bit of crochet. Before Christmas I started a piece and today I finished it. I saw something like it on a blog, but could not finds a pattern, so was trying something and it worked! I've put a glass yar in it, with around it a piece of paper where I've cute out some hearts. I really love it, so I'm going to make another one!
I wanna thank everybody who stopped by this year on my blog, and for the ones that taken the time to leave a comment. I means the world to me!
I hope you will come back next year!
I wanna wish everybody a fantastic ending of the year, and a wonderfull start of the new year.
May it gives us a very creative year, and I hope to enjoy al your beautifull blogs and ideas in the new year
A very big hug
Sending my condolences for the loss of your grandfather.
Glad Noah has recovered. And your luminary (if that's the right word) is very clever.
Have a very happy new year!
Ach Annette wat erg , en dat met kerst ... gecondoleerd met jullie verlies en heel veel sterkte , goed dat Noah nu beter is , onze kleine Noor is nu koorstvrij van gisteren , op kerst moest ze ook naar het ziekenhuis met 41° koorts nu is ze ook beter ! ZO worden de feestdagen toch maar triest hè !
Oh, Annette, I'm so very sorry to hear about your grandfather. He lived a nice long life, didn't he?
Too bad Noah was ill on Christmas Day--I do hope he's fully recovered now. And you take care now--rest as much as you can. I know that is hard with a little one to care for.
Wishing you and your family a very wonderful new year :)
sorry to read about your loss...
hope Noah is better by now.
Wishing you all a beautiful new year.
Gecondoleerd Annete,voor jou en je familie.
Goed dat je naar je lichaam kunt luisteren, neem die rust. Geniet van je gezinnetje deze laaste dag van het jaar.
groetjes en liefs kronova
Gecondoleerd Annette en veel sterkte.
Doe rustig aan en succes met de laatste loodjes.
Fijne jaarwisseling en alvast een geweldig nieuwjaar gewenst, met een lief klein schattig maar vooral gezond ukkie erbij.
Best wishes in the New Year, Annette!
A big hug to you and your family. I'm so sorry for you. Glad that little fellow is better now. It seems we are having some kind of stomach bug too but it doesn't slow down the youngest one.
I am sorry for the sad new you get,and hope that Noah is now better
I remember so well the last Christmas when I was at the hospitals ER with my DS who had a flu and he get kind of cramps to his throat and his coffin started to hear very nasty.
Then his breathing went very bad ..
The nurse gave him adrenaline and cortison injections..
and made he to inhale some medicin too.
He have had some kind of problems when he was a baby.
It is not an any allergy -kind reaction but a disease called the laryngitis.
Gecondoleerd met het verlies van Opa.
Gelukkig is Noah weer een beetje opgeknapt.
De laatste loodjes en nu maar wachten op jullie nieuwe wondertje.
Dit brengt alweer vreugde in 2011.
Ik wens jullie een gezond en vreugdevol jaar toe en speciaal voor jou een creatief 2011 gewenst.
Heel veel groetjes van Marion
oei, nu pas gelezen :(
Gecondoleerd met jullie verlies!
On this exact day of your post, I received the same kind of phone call.. it wasn't Christmas, it was New Year's Eve but this things don't choose days, right?
It comforts our hearts knowing that they had a beautiful and long life =)
Sweet hug to you
