Our Month of Love

Just wanted to say how much I love my man. For V-day he sent me these roses and then took me out to dinner and jean shopping. What a catch! Darren really does so much for me even after doing so much at work, so much at church, and giving so much to our three little rugrats. He just keeps getting better and I'm more in love with him every day.Here's Joseph showing the love for his little sis by changing her diaper. I love watching him do this all by himself. Justin also loves all over Erica. He just gets in her face and gets a little carried away. I go back and forth between feeling sorry for Erica for the loudness of her brothers and feeling like she's lucky to be so well entertained. She does cry when they leave her alone so she must prefer their boisterousness.Erica's new trick is grabbing at toys (or Mommy's watch).
Just a few of my fave 4 month old pics:Loves bathtime! She always flashes a huge smile when she gets into that warm water and Justin caught the tail end of it. But here's a big one! This girl's hair is out of control.Every Sunday when I get to put Erica in one of her gorgeous dresses I just want to do a huge photo shoot. But she doesn't always comply. My boys are pretty handsome too. Love these kids.

January's over already?

It was a great January! I think I'm gonna like 2011. Typically I despise January. The holiday partying is over, Darren gets busy with work again, and the weather is just blah. But look what we've been up to. First, we kept the partying going with the big Duck game which, as you know, didn't exactly go as we hoped. But boy did we throw a good party for the Young Men. Cool Bishop, right? This picture was taken after the game ended, hence Darren's thumbs down. He was a good loser, though.Darren did get busy with a project and worked his way through a weekend so we left him to go to a party! (Sorry, honey) Happy birthday to Caleb and Kellen! We had a great time in Portland with these cuties. Marc and Connie just treated us to non-stop fun.Not to mention hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa Jolley again. Erica missed them.January had a lot of blah weather, but we had some fun stuff too. We had the perfect snow day. It snowed all night and school was delayed 2 hours so we could play in it! It was great packing snow and it melted the same day. Just the way I like my Seattle snow.Then we've had some gorgeous, clear days to get outside in. One Saturday we spent outside at Lincoln Park.Another day we walked to the park for a picnic.And this baby just keeps getting cuter. Hope you had a good January too!
