Crazy Granny Love!

I know three little goofballs who LOVE them some of their Granny!

And it's probably cuz not only does Granny fit right in with the crazy... she brings the props to make it happen!

The crazy 'round here is Granny's fault... but we love it!

Granny Time Means Cookie Time!

Granny made it to town for a visit and ya know what that means...


Among other things!

The goofballs were so stoked for this visit - and so far things have been 100 miles an hour, squeeze in all we can do before granny has to leave!

They sure do love cookies... AND their Granny, too!

Me and My Elf - Two Man Production Crew

We were in between some shots and I slid in beside him on the couch and said:

"Buddy - get over here and give me a hug!"
He quickly responded with:
"Daddy... remember... you can't touch the elf!"
And he was right... that was the rule!

I grabbed him and pulled him closer for a hug and told him to be quick and nobody would see!

He challenged me to put on my best "Elf Face" so I gave it a shot...

It pales in comparison to his though!

He said it was great... he's an awesome encourager this little elf!

And we have a real blast doing this whole thing together!

Stay zany Z-Dogg... and daddy will stay zany with you!

Home-Going Part II

Guess who is heading back to Ethiopia to serve at Brighton Academy and love on the students and kids there?

You're looking at them!

I am so excited for them - but there is NO WAY I am more excited than they are!

They've been talking about going back for a long time - and their desire to serve is SUPER STRONG - so i know they are going to have an amazing time and a be a bright light for Him in the Kingdom.

We've told them they're going to have to fund-raise for their costs - so you may hear from them soon as they try to start putting that together.

In the meantime... would you pray for them with me?

Prayers for ready hearts, health to stay good and minds being prepped by God to go be His hands and feet.

Daddy is proud of you girls... now go shine your lights super bright!

Super thankful for these ladies in my life!

The Furriest of Friends

These two right here... I swear...

They are the BESTEST of friends!

Both of them need each other equally as bad!

And together - they are the most comfortable and secure they can be!

Man's best friend, they say...

It's Meron's best friend, 'round these parts!

Daddy... Feel the Puffs!

I'm torn on this growing up thing!

We used to always be needed for hair care 'round these parts... but things are changing!

After church today - Mebbie ran a bath, hopped in and took out her own braids, conditioned her own hair and then pulled 'em back up in to puffs.

And she looked adorable!

Her puffs have always made her look younger - and I couldn't get over her cuteness!

She was proud of her work (as she should be!) and she said:

"Daddy! Feel the puffs! Feel how soft they are!"
And while it's super nice being released from hair duty and watching these girls take on the responsibility for their own stuff...

This growing up stuff is still for the birds!

I guess I can't fight it - I'll just try to embrace it!

Mebbie... GREAT job girl - looking adorable as usual!

Mebbie The Baller

I have absolutely LOVED watching Mebbie fall in love with this game during this fall season!

Today was a 10 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and amazing defense kind of day!

But better than all of that... was how excited she was to play and how much fun she had!

Stay balling Mebbie... and stay smiling!
