Grandpa Prestwich's funeral

Tim's grandpa, Don Prestwich, died in July. Tim had the opportunity to spend a few nights helping him in the weeks leading up to his passing. It was a tender, special time for them. Tim spent a lot of his childhood right by Grandpa's side on the farm and at the house. He was a good man!

There was a viewing at the church. I thought I took pictures of some of the family, but I guess not. This lovely picture of long-ago Moroni hangs in the RS room there.

 We ended up being the first car behind the hearse. The route from the church to the cemetery took us past the farm where Don had spent his entire life. It was a beautiful day to remember him!

 The local VFW performed a touching flag ceremony and 21 gun salute. Jess was given the flag that covered the casket.

Troy and Shaun gave talks.

The following pics are ones Tim took on his way to stay with his Grandpa. The flooding came when heavy rains fell on the burn scar from the forest fire. Wild storm!

Eliza has a hard time staying in one place. This is the angle I took the picture.

Jenna's birthday #10

Double digits saw Jenna celebrating over and over this year. Here's a peek...

Cousin party at Gma & Gpa Lloyd's

10 candles makes quite a bonfire! (Friend party- Sabrina in the background)

Jenna is all about turquoise these days, right down to the cake.

We made these fun party favors in little fruit cocktail cans. Thanks, Pinterest.

Eliza was amazed by this rainbow that joined the party.

 The girls decorated flip flops, played lots of games during the party. So many girls, so much fun!! 

And don't forget the #10 pancakes for breakfast on the big day!

Eliza turned 2!

Our spunky little Liza turned 2 in July. I still can't believe we have her & I'm so glad I got to stay around to raise her. She's a delight to have!!She's got her own unique personality and wants to run with the big kids. As soon as she figured out how to say that she's 2, she started telling people that she's 5. Such a nut! She loves playing outside, apples, Super Why & Caillou, gum, and singing and dancing. She's almost always happy, albeit shy around strangers at first.

With cousin Zach, waiting for Heavy, heavy hangover

My sweet cousin Amanda, her hubby Thomas & other family members came

Blowing out the candles

We also partied with the Prestwiches at our house. 

She was genuinely delighted with all of her gifts, and still (now November) carries around her "Tina" doll everywhere she can. Papa Jess gave her a Princess Tiana baby doll set. She loves that doll more than any of my other girls have ever loved a doll in the history of doll loving! We frequently take Tina with us when we got to the school for different things. Instead of me pushing my baby in the stroller, Eliza pushes Tina in her little stroller. So sweet!

Aubrey's birthday

With the London Olympics in full-swing this summer. Aubrey decided she wanted an Olympics birthday party. It was so fun!

 There are so many girls her age in the ward & neighborhood. It was hard to have to cut off the guest list somewhere. I hope we didn't leave anyone out!
We started with the Parade of Nations. Each girl decorated her own little flag (an index card) and Aubrey led them on a parade around the yard.

By the end, everyone had a flag, gold medal, and their own torch full of little treats.

 The big torch, from whence all other torches come... Olympic cauldronish

Eliza carried the big torch

 We also had a party with the Gibsons and Grandma Barb & Papa Gary. Aub got a cookbook and tablecloth and later she and Grandma planned, prepared and served a meal for our family. Well done!
