Easter 2006 was very eventful. We had the
whole family over to eat supper Sunday evening,
but later on that night Benn, Amanda and pre-born Noah were in a wreck while
traveling back to their home in Baton Rouge. Here are some of us on
the back porch, waiting for supper. Pregnant Lydia is talking with pregnant Amanda.
We also celebrated our granddaughter, Savannah's second birthday.
Our daughter, Amy organized lots of games; here is grandson, Wilder doing one of Amy's relay races.
The Old Man participated, too.

Thanksgiving 2003 was spent in Memphis, Tennessee. We gave thanks to God by attending worship Thanksgiving morning at the Second Presbyterian Church; our son-in-law, John Uhl, preached. After church we had a photograph taken. The sun faded us out a bit, but all fifteen members of our family are in it.

Times change: this picture was taken in August of 1998, around the time that our son-in-law, John Uhl, was ordained as a pastor. Most of the family was in South Carolina for the celebration. Since that time, God has blessed the Uhls with a third son, Nathan William -- William because he was born on my late father's birthday, November 1, 2000, and Christian Andrew Preston was born on June 17, 2002. God gave Christian and Brian a little sister on April 14, 2004, Savannah Rose Preston, our first granddaughter.
