Happy Birthday Jeff!

Ever since Gabrielle was born the girls have been wanting to take a bath with her. I finally relented. Don't they look so cute?

I just noticed that in this picture Joelle appears to be flipping her father off. Let me say that is not the case. She is not like that.

Jeff and I just had our birthdays. I am the only sibling left in the family that is still in their twenties...but not for long. It makes me reflect on how fast time goes by. I don't want to believe that we are all getting older. Jeff is now 32. He has been complaining that he feels old. He now has a "gut" and "handles". Really, he doesn't, but Jeff is used to being skinny. I think he still looks great. He complains that he doesn't exercise. I keep telling him, quit talking about it, just do it. For his birthday I bought him P90X (I found a good deal on craigslist :)). He has started the workouts, I am amazed to see him dedicated to it. We are both doing the program. It is intense, about an hour a day, 6 days a week for 90 days. Anyone else interested in doing it too? It would be fun to have more people join the challenge. I was going to post his before picture, but I need to ask him first.

Jeff has been home more these days. He fills his fatherhood role really well. Yesterday he cleaned the kitchen, family room and helped the girls clean their room. He also helps with breakfast. He takes his turn making dinner. I have also seen him grow a lot spiritually. He has stepped up to be a leader for our family. He makes sure we have family prayer, scripture reading and FHE. He has asked me to go with him to the temple twice a month with him. I loved the man he was but the man he is growing to be..... It is something I can't describe. This is starting to almost turn into a love letter. I will stop here. But just know that I really love Jeff and appreciate all that he does for me and our family.


Wow, that picture of Joelle in the bathtub. She looks so much like you it is amazing! I hope you both had a great birthday!
