Eight years ago

Our Lilli turned eight and was baptised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on April 16th. 
It was a beautiful day with lots of family. 
Emma pointed out that all the girls had "big" birthday this year. 
 Sophia 5,  Lilli 8, Bella 10,..and soon Emma 13!

On April 23rd my Grandma Tolman passed away at the age of 91.  Though she will be missed I am so, so happy for her!  She gets to be with her eternal love and she lived a good, long life and she was a good person.  I asked her to make this dress for Emma when she was baptized, Bella also wore it, and in 3 years Sophia will wear it.  I didn't know until the funeral that this was the last dress that my Grandma made.  She was an excellent seamstress, she made two dresses of mine for school dances, and many many more for others.   It was a really great funeral that I was so glad that I attended (amazingly all 26 of her grandchildren were there).  It helped me hear things about her that made me appreciate her more and see her as a great example!

Games with Grandma and Grandpa, we were so glad they could come

Joshy....as always was fun to smooch
 Ears pierced

These two friends often get mistaken for twins!
