Families Are Forever

We just got some new family pictures (we had to get some that included our pretty little Vanna) so I thought I'd share them. I plan on dedicating one large wall in our family room to family photos so these will be some I hang.



I also thought I'd copy my sister-in-law's idea to tell a little about our family-from the beginning-to accompany our pictures. I am Erica Bazil. I’m originally from Lava Hot Springs, ID. I love the smell of my fresh, clean babies after I've bathed them and put baby lotion on them. I also love to scrapbook, shop, and decorate - so I'm having a hay-day with our new house!
My husband is Ty. He is originally from Rigby, ID. He loves to fish and work out. He's considering joinging the weight club here until he gets his weight bench. We love to watch movies together and we love the limited alone time we get to eat dinner, visit, or whatever!
We met in Pocatello at Idaho State University where we were both attending school at the time. Just before we got married, I had graduated from school with an Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies and we had just found out that Ty was accepted into ISU’s pharmacy program. We were married in June, just over four years ago in the Idaho Falls Temple.
So while going through the program Ty worked at Smith’s pharmacy as an Intern and I worked as a paralegal at a law firm for a couple years before we were blessed with the arrival of our adorable little boy, Cash. He is now just over two years old and never fails to entertain. He is such a good (and typical) little boy-he loves to be outside; he hates brushing his teeth; he reminds us before each meal to bless the food by folding his arms; he likes to read stories before going to bed and kissing each of us goodnight. We had planned on my staying at home with our children so when we had Cash I quit my job and we’ve never regretted the decision.
This spring we had a lot of exciting change when in April we had another bundle of joy join our family. Her name is Vanna - she is three months old. Her personality is really starting to shine through now. She flirts and smiles for anyone who will pay her any attention and is even beginning to coo. Also, Ty graduated in May and a week after his graduation we moved to Payette, ID for a job that he took as a Pharmacist at BI-MART in Weiser.
Ty is really enjoying his job but definitely feels the burden of responsibility that goes with it. One mistake and someone could really get hurt. But beyond that, the hours are awsome and he likes who he works with.
We are enjoying the company of our new friends, loving our new house...mmm...whatelse...simply put, our family is doing wonderfully!

Your pictures turned out very well. What an adorable family. I'm glad to hear that everything is going well and that you are liking it. Thanks for the names, I really think it is harder to name girls. I don't know, she might not be named until we leave the hospital!
