As far as other news in our life. Most of it is just the same. We are still waiting to hear back from the colleges that Jai has applied to. Jai's sister Paris just had a baby boy yesterday. Unfortunately he doesn't have a name yet, and I don't know what I have done with my camera so we have no pictures at the moment. I think we will be visiting them this weekend anyway. He is our second nephew, to be added to the mix of six nieces and the seventh niece on the way (my sister-in-law Cassie is having another girl in July). Other than that everything is still the same. Laundry to fold, baby to entertain, and a room to clean. I hope you all are doing well.
Dearest Evil Kidnappers,
Elvo request more time to be given to your demands. Elvo has recentely suffered a tragic accident with a pepsi can, some pyrotechnics and sheep. His hair has been badly damages and request some extra time so he can regrow his proper pompadore. I have included the bag of M&M's and hope this will be sufficient to keep my treasured possession safe until I hear your response.
So that night I wrote a draft of our response letter. It read:
Rather than demanding video proof of Elvo's unfortunate accident, we believe you deserve a little break. We will give Elvo until Easter to recuperate and shoot the video (we have nothing against Elvo and wish him only the best on his journey to good health). In the mean time to show you our good will, we will let your treasured possession go, but not into your hands. We will let it roam free around California while tracking it with our own sophisticated GPS tracking system. Your loved one will not be captive anymore, but it will not be returned to you until ALL of our demands are met. We will let it contact you in the next few days, please check your mailbox or email to confirm its safety.
The Evilest of Kidnappers
So I sent it to the other three people in the office in on the joke to get their okay on the note. Then my manager Scott cracks and shows Aaron the email before it was completely ready (I was going to send it through a junk email account that I have) So now Aaron knows who exactly is in on the joke, but we still haven't cracked and admitted our guilt. We are going to continue and have The Glory start blogging about its adventures. In a few days you will have more info on where to find the blog and what happens next.

For the last few days we have had really nice weather for Southern California. Probably about mid 70's during the day and perfectly cool at night. It really doesn't feel like the beginning of February, but its so nice that I don't mind.
So this weekend has been a little crazy for us. It all started when my mother-in-law called us to have dinner with them on Friday night because Jai's brother Jason was in town from Colorado on business. After dinner we hung out at my in-laws house with the family. Just as we were about to leave my mother-in-law got a phone call that sounded like someone was seriously hurt. Then we found out that it just was her normal over-reaction to finding out that her daughter Jessie just had her baby. So we all packed our stuff at 9:15pm and headed off to the hospital. There we all met our new niece (except for Lizzie) Kendal Bailey Ellis who was only a few hours old. After a few more hours, we left the hospital and got home in time to pass out right before midnight.
Saturday morning was filled with laundry, dealing with an extremely tired baby and going to the store to get medicine for Elizabeth's first diaper rash and a few new binkies that don't irritate her sensitive skin.
wearing her sunglasses
and passing out halfway through.
Not only did we get Jai some shorts and jeans, but we also found a perfect outfit for baby Jeffs. As we were in a children's clothing store, Jai points across the store and told me that was the outfit that he wanted to get him. I would tell you what it was, but I don't want to spoil the surprise for Kelli. We will see you soon, so you don't have to wait too long to find out.
Our weekend isn't over yet. Stay tunned for our next few posts "Lizzie meeting the new baby" and "The Eight days of Valentine"

This is Elizabeth getting her hair done. It was the first time she didn't wiggle and complain a whole lot during the hair perfecting process.
After Church we had a baby shower for one of her aunts. It of course was during her nap time but too much was going on that she didn't want to sleep. She played with her second cousin Jacquline and cooed at everyone that walked by her.
By the end of the party she passed out from too much fun.
The next picture is one of my favorites. It was taken a few weeks ago. I had taken the pig tails out of her hair and she was sad and crying about it. It was soooo funny that we decided that we needed to take pictures of it. Once she realized we were taking pictures of her she tried to stop crying and this is the picture:
I will try to be better at posting blogs. I know funny things happen everyday, but its trying to find the time to get to the internet to tell you all about them that is a little hard for me. Soon she will have two more cousins and tons of pictures with them so there will be more I promise.
