Grandma Stokes' Funeral

On Monday November 24th my Dad's mom passed away. She was 94 years old and she lived a good long life. We knew it was coming but it was still a little hard to take. We had her funeral on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Noah couldn't get off work in time but Izabel and I went to the cemetery for the short service and then Noah met us back at my Mom's house for lots of food and some time with the family. It was really nice to see everyone but we're getting tired of family gatherings under these circumstances! Izabel started getting really cranky and tired so after people finished eating and started heading out we did too.
We went home and we all had a nice nap. Aunt Ann and Mimi were out shopping and Papa and Aunt Theresa were looking at tattoos so the house was nice and quiet. Then the whole gang headed out to the hockey game that night while Izabel and I stayed home to get some more rest!
