Finally......

A new one!! The way Im going the next post will be when Eliza goes to college!! So, we have been super busy. Josh is working like crazy. He is gone a lot more than we would like, but we so appreciate all his hard work and willingness to support our family. We got a chance to spend a week with my family and a week with Josh's family at the Oregon Coast. It was so much fun and good to see everyone. ( we missed the Evan's though!!) Here are some random pictures of our family since...... July i guess

The Fam at the beach.
Liza loved the sand. She couldn't get enough. Thanks Mindy and Ty for the cute suit from Hawaii!!
The water was FREEZING. She still couldn't get enough.
Sad face.
On the stairs. She's been climbing them for awhile now, but just learned to crawl down. It seems she learns something new everyday. She is walking 8 steps or so by herself, her favorite word is "dog-dog" and loves to "woof-woof" too. She loves to sing and do motions to songs and can't wait to lead the music on Sunday. (with help from daddy.)

Liza and Daddy- Notice her teeth. She has 8 and 2 mollars are poking through!!!
Cousins Kylee and Kyla. We had so much fun playing with them. They are only a couple months apart.
All the cousins. There are 42 plus one once removed!!
I wish this is what i looked like!! Josh's older sister Jenny and Liz.
Hiking at Cape lookout.

Liza when you say "hug your dolly"
Our "precious" dogs. Babe and Lizzy. They are good dogs, just a little destructive!!



When Eliza sees a fork, she insists on using it. Usually when this happens she ends up looking like this. She actually does get a few things in her mouth.
Daddy and Liza at our garage sale. I asked Josh to dress her, she has a million cute clothes and he came down with her in this. Jammies!!!!! (it was like 85 degrees that day!)

Well, hello lady. It's been too long! Love all the cute pictures. Eliza is a little merry sunshine and I just love her! I laughed out loud at the Dad with the jammies incident- what is it about them- they cannot dress children. It's a common problem! When are you going to get internet?!

Hey you and Steph were suposed to grab me and Kyla for the beach baby photo's. I had to photo shop Kyla in. Very Sad. Anyway it was fun seeing you guys. Eliza is such a crazy baby! SO much movement. I love it. Oh- if you dont mind will you send me an email and tell me what you do to make those cute bows? What kind of clips and where do they come from? THanks

CUTE pictures. I love the one of her crazy hair while using her fork. Looks like a fun vacation, we missed the coast this year. It was fun to see you for 1 minute this summer minus that cute little girl. Hopefully we can see more of you soon!

What the? A new post? That's nuts. Love all the pics. That girl is getting bigger & cuter by the second. She's almost one right? On the 15th? I miss your guts. Hope you're getting ready to party.

Hello! You don't know me, but my maiden name is Volmer and I was so happy to find your blog (by mistake in looking for my parents' blog!) I didn't know there were more Volmers around the US. (Usually we find some with a double l.) We are located in WI. What a beautiful baby you have. All my best, Christie (Volmer) Kleinowski, Milwaukee WI

Hi Erin! You'll never believe...but you'll have to check out our Eliza on our blog! Yep, we named our daughter Eliza too. I don't know if I totally forgot that you guys chose that name or if I never knew. Either way - I guess we have good taste. Our blog is darranandlori.blogspot.com - your Eliza is adorable!

Lou said...

Erin, it's Lori Lessig, now Lori Tanner. Your roommate from freshman year at Ricks. Jennifer found me on facebook and directed me to your blog....I LOVE IT. You and your husband look great! How are you. I was married 2 1/2 years ago in the Bountiful temple and now live in LA with my husband Mike. We just had a baby girl, named Catherine. She is only ten days old. Look me up on facebook.
