Visiting Family

 We visited  Dad at my sister-in-law's house the day after Thanksgiving because we only got to see him for a brief moment  when we went to his former house.  He was out of breath during the Thanksgiving celebration that he has to leave early.  His health is declining  drastically which concerns all of us.
My niece-in-law  is now living  at my FIL's former house so they hosted this year's  Thanksgiving.  We  were late   because I also  made a dinner at home and we ate before we went  and visited everybody.
 It is so hard see your parent get weaker each day.  I remember when I first came here, Dad was  still very strong and healthy.  He is a big part of my children.  We lived at his house for  a year before we bought our home and  he is the best father-in-law anyone could  have.  I am so blessed!
 Even though he doesn't recognize us anymore, I still see him  the same when  I first met him.  He is the kindest person I know.  My kids are very fond of  their memories with him when they were younger and Dad can still drive.  He would visit us and they would take them for a drive going to his house.
 At 93, he still look great but his strength is declining.  He can no longer  walk far.  Just walking to  one room to another, he is catching his breath already.
 I got him to smile  for me.  I told him that I will  show his picture to his sister, so he gave me a  big smile.

When we were about to leave, my sister-in-law's  daughter and granddaughter also visited so we took pictures of them with Dad and kids before we left.
It was a nice visit.  The last time we went and visited, he was asleep so we did not get to see him.  But anyway, here are  my babies having fun in front of the camera.
From my family to yours, Merry Christmas everyone!

Delightful family photos. Loved your gentle comments about your dad. And the last photo with your daughter and dogs is a great one.

Your father-in-law sounds like a wonderful person. Yes, it's very hard to watch a healthy person lose his health. I'm glad he smiled for you and your camera! That's a precious photo.
