Christmas morning was so fun with Darby. She was so excited about EVERYTHING. We had to help her open her presents because she would be so excited about what was just opened that she couldn't possibly concentrate on something new!
Now we are packing up and heading to Big Bear for our annual trip to celebrate New Years with friends! I can't wait to take Darby sledding and playing out in the SNOW!
Sending ALL of you warm wishes for a blessed and happy New Year!

We finally made it to the front of the line in Santa's house and of course her excitement turned to shyness and we couldn't even get her to crack a smile. But I'm not complaining, she didn't cry and I still think the picture is just perfect!!
AND Santa even gave her a candy cane!

Our little Darby is growing so fast! We are so proud of her first pee-pee in her big girl potty!
I decided to try to potty training now just because she talks about it all the time. Sometimes she even tells us when she is going in her diaper. Of course, it could still take quite awhile, but we are letting her call the shots. If it works this early, great! If not, that's ok too!
No matter what, we are so proud of Darby's first pee-pee in her potty! Stay tuned for video!

Something I had been wanting to get taken for awhile were professional family photos. We didn't have any really good family pictures, and barely any pictures of me along with Eric and/or Darby! I guess that's what I get for always being the one snapping all the pictures. Even so, I wanted to make sure we had a really good picture for our Christmas cards this year, so my dream of professional pictures came true!
We heard about a photographer named Joe Martinez through a friend and arranged a shoot for the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Joe met us at beautiful Heritage Park in Cerritos and we had a great time playing around the park and posing for pictures. Darby LOVED chasing the ducks and swinging at the playground! We are so excited about our pictures! Joe created a slide show for us and you can check it out by clicking on this link -
I think I cry just about every time I watch it. The song we chose is "our song", hope you enjoy it!
