For those of you who do not know Ryan's grandfather John Decker passed away on November 18, 2007. He was 82 years old and had been ill with Alzheimers. Before his passing we had scheduled a family trip to Kansas for thanksgiving to meet Andrew's new family and to have one last chance to all be together before the big Brady move. We were fortunate enough to find "good" airfare so that the girls and I were able to go visit and still be home to support Ryan and the rest of our family here. We arrived in Kansas early Tuesday and returned home early thanksgiving morning.
My parents flew in on Wednesday afternoon just in time for an early thanksgiving dinner with most of Bethany's family. It was a short but wonderful visit.
