Sibling Silliness

This girl's beauty and joy and love know no bounds...

Neither does her sister's weirdo-ness!

I love how they love each other!

Always stay silly, girls!

Keeps Me Grinning

This guy right here... man he keeps me cracking up!

This was right before school - kinda sleepy - kinda dragging - but he looks up at just the right time and WHAM! - goofball face!

Z-Dogg - I love your sense of humor, your timing, your desire to laugh ALL the time...

I just love who you are, little man!

God made you good, homie... God made you GOOD!

My Everything (minus one)

With the most important member missing in action on a trip to Atlanta - you're looking at my:

Everything minus one!

This crew is all of it to me. I love everything about them - their spirit, their spunk, their joy, their empathy, their laughter, their stubbornness, their fears, their worries, their faith, their hearts...

I could go on forever and ever.

We were busy doing silly photos of b-boy poses, jumping, gangster leaning... when Mebbie said:

"Lets take at least ONE like a normal family!"
Made me smile... so I did it... but told her we are far from normal and we're A-OKAY with that!

Thanks guys, for being abnormal with your weirdo daddy!

Can I PUH-LEEEASE Scrub the Bathtub?

Who asks that?

Mebbie does, that's who!

I was all set to hunker down and throw some elbow grease at the NASTY bathtub in Z-Dogg's bathroom... when Mebbie showed up and said:

"Oooohhh - daddy - can I scrub the tub? Puh-leeeaaase? I LOVE scrubbing the tub!"
I pinched myself... and it was real...

This girl dug in and scrubbed that thing super dooper clean!

All with a smile!

Matter of fact - both of these champions helped me out like crazy today!

Baked a breakfast casserole, pulled weeds, picked up dog poo, vacuumed house, cleaned kitchen... and even managed to squeeze in almost 5 miles on the elliptical too!

Girls... daddy is SUPER IMPRESSED at all you guys did to help out today!

Thanks for being champions!

96 Hours of Us

Laura left this morning for Atlanta - to spend some time with the next team heading to Ethiopia and to share at a partner church about Brighton Their World...

Leaving me all alone here with this crew!

Hunker down guys... for 96 hours of "us time!"

It might even involve a planned Whole30 cheat or two... complete with Z-Dogg's psycho eyes!

Here's to surviving the weekend without mommy!

A Reason To "Cheat"

When you're 10 days in to the next "Family Whole30" and it's one of the kid's days...

Well that's reason enough to "CHEAT" for one day!

An Olive Garden dinner (Mebbie's choice) followed up by some mini-but-delicious ice creams capped off the night!

Back to the grind, girls... BACK TO THE GRIND!
