Friday Photo Flashback

Thanksgiving is less than a week away. Wowzers. Today, we had a doc appointment in Charlotte and, while in the neighborhood, we cruised through IKEA, aka: the most kid-friendly store I’ve ever been in. We plopped Rand into a highchair for lunch and he was so happy just watching the buzz all around him. He even tasted his first mashed potatoes (Wes wouldn’t share any meatballs) which got me thinking that we’ll have to puree some turkey and mashed potatoes for him this week!

Anyhow, on to the photo flashback…this foggy gem of Franklin siblings is from Thanksgiving 2009. Perhaps the foggiest and one of the most fun Thanksgivings. We were with our good friends the Halberts and the Butlers AND it was the Thanksgiving that we adopted our puppy Nina! I’m pretty sure I wore that same vest last year and what do you know…I have it on now. Good thing the weather has been different so we can tell which year is which!

I can’t show you a pic from last year because it was a freezing cold drizzlefest BUT, here’s a little video flashback from sunny 2008 (also the year I got a flip cam…).

We can’t wait to show Rand this fun family and community tradition. Already praying for good weather this year!

Friday Photo Flashback

I stole this photo from my facebook page…it is from a few years ago when my brother, Sam, graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. When I was a kid, I never could have guessed that all three of us Franklin kids would graduate, like our grandparents did, from Carolina. Tonight, I’m a proud Tar Heel watching a good basketball game in an even better setting – on an aircraft carrier! Whoever thought of that one deserves a pat on the back.

Go Heels!!!

Prayer request

Hi friends, a few weeks ago I wrote about Rand’s cute “mater onesie”  made by my friend Settle Monroe of Pinecone Threads…well, Settle and her husband Jeff need your prayers.  On Saturday morning, their 3-year-old son Webb did not wake up.  So if you would please stop and take a few minutes right now to pray for Settle, Jeff, Jack (Webb’s twin brother) and 1-year-old Duncan.  Settle and Jeff have amazing faith and, although the shock and sadness was evident on their faces at the funeral on Wednesday afternoon, so was their strong steadfastness and trust in the Lord.  Please pray that the Lord would comfort them and give them a “peace that transcends all understanding.” (Phil. 4:7)

At the funeral, everyone was given a bookmark that Webb colored at church the Sunday before.  Here is a link to Webb’s amazing obituary.
