If You Build It... They Will Dive

So... I built a stage in the basement cuz our goofballs LOVE to perform.

It's about 75% done with a few small tweaks and finishing things - but that hasn't stopped this crazy man from perfecting his stage dives!

I mean - dude is half trust fall, half rock concert leap...

With zero hesitation - he just slings himself out there.

The stage dive put his Joy-Meter at 100 for sure...

It's all fun and games til somebody catches a Z-Dogg to the head!.

Heads up Goofballs, if ya walk near the stage!

Mattresses all sprawled out across the playroom can only mean one thing...


Man... we love having visitors and we're super thankful for for folks coming all the way out here to just hang out and spend some time!

We got the best friends around!

How She Rolls

This girl right here will roll with absolutely anything I am doing.

No questions asked.

She's my partner in creative crime!

Just about every single day!

I adore the time we spend being goofy together...

Thanks Meron - for always being down - no questions asked!

Ladies Love Cool Z

When all the girls are out having dinner with friends...

It's time to let Z-Dogg unleash his inner LL Cool J!

Or should I say "LL COOL Z" - Ladies Love Cool Z!

I mean... come on!

Tough guy lips... CHECK!

Big chain round the neck... CHECK!

"Z" bling on the 4-finger ring... CHECK!

Guns of steel... CHECK!

Dude was killing it!

Z's gonna knock you out...!!

These goofballs came running out all excited to surprise me with their matching outfits for bedtime...

I love that they love being alike - and I love watching 'em love on each other.

I pray they never grow out of each other...

Fierce love bond.

Cruising through some pictures tonight because I STILL owe myself some blog updates from our family trip and I came across this picture!

I love this so much - the excitement of the young girls thrilled to be there in Ethiopia with the beauty of the elder Ethiopian - sitting together at a coffee ceremony.

Belated Birthday Movie

So glad these two got to sneak off before the big game today and go see a movie together...

Meron has been wanting to treat Mommy to a movie date for her birthday - she was SO excited all day about it!

Keep at it Meron - we'll turn mommy in to a movie-lover in no time!
