Setting up Christmas 2010

We set Christmas up early this year so that we could enjoy it a little longer. We are gone a lot this time of year so we decided to set Christmas up before we took off for Thanksgiving. We had so much fun. This is one heavy Christmas tree and the kids loved helping dad bring it upstairs.

Then of course there had to be playing in the box.

Then finally the finished product. Doesn't it look great.

Grandpa Great's funeral

Great Grandpa Patten Funeral
December 11, 2010
Springville, UT

This is some of the great-grandkids practicing the song they are going to sing. They sang "I know that my Savior Loves me". They did such a great job. Jaxon loves to sing and he just sang his heart out.

Just some of the family that was there.Everyone of my siblings were there and all of my cousins.

Grandpa served in WWII so the military came in to do a 21 gun salute. This is them getting ready.

The sign of a fallen soldier.

All the Paulbears putting the casket in place.

We let all the great-grandchildren who wanted ride in the limo. It was pretty funny.

Standing room only. Safe, right? They all loved it.
