Derrel has joined the blogosphere!

I just wanted to tell anyone who is interested about Derrel's new blog. You can access it here on our blog in our circle of influence. He may not have a lot of time, but he'll sure tell you some of his great experiences in medical school. I also just have to put in a little plug for Derrel for Father's Day. I tell you, Derrel is AMAZING. He definitely keeps his family and calling at highest priority. I am so proud of him for finishing his first year of med school. I love him so much and am so blessed to spend my life with him. He's a special guy.
We love you Derrel!

Here's an old video of Derrel and Lydia. Happy Father's Day (a little late). Enjoy. . .

I guess I should do a post about Kate since she is so amiable, adorable, lovable and beautiful. She has never been one to throw a fit or get upset very easily. She is pretty much a perfect child in every way possible so let us share a few pictures with you of her.

Happy Birthday Lydia

Well, Lydia had her birthday party last Tuesday. We decided to have a luau/swimming party. It was great. We invited all of her girls friends and had hula skirts and leis and the whole shebang. She had so much fun. I have to admit, Derrel did ALL of the activities with the girls while I manned the kitchen and food. What an AWESOME dad, huh?


Hawaiian hotties =)

Beth, Eliza and Lydia

We had a BLAST!

It's a miracle!

So, I've finally jumped on the bandwagon (after much harrassment from my sister-in-law) and started a blog of my own. If you know me well enough, I won't start ANYTHING unless it turns out perfect so for me to start this is nothing short of a miracle. Everyone else has so many prodigious things to say; my experiences are mundane and ordinary but I'll give it a shot.

Well, Lydia's birthday was yesterday. I can't believe that I have a 4 year old. What a feat! She gracefully flew through the terrible two's AND three's and has safely landed somewhere in the vacinity of being a beautiful and brilliant four year old. She definitely keeps us on our toes.

HaPpY BiRtHdAy LyDiA!
We love you.

So, sit back, my fellow friends, relax and enjoy our new blog!
