Social Z

Every birthday - we tell the goofballs they can either have a bunch of gifts and "stuff" from us - or they can pick to share some sort of thing with their friends.

Our crew is so social - they ALWAYS pick to do something with friends!

Z-Dogg started his afternoon with lunch at Chick Fil A with a couple friends!

Next we piled in the car and all headed to catch a movie together!

After popcorn, slushies, candy... the energy and goofy level was high.

I said "Bust a bboy stance!" and this is what I got!


They tried again...


And finally... they nailed it!

Dip, dip dive... so-socialize! Open up your ears and clean out your eyes!

Triple Threat Day

Today was November 9th... or as it is better known around here:

Triple Threat Day!

Why Triple Threat?

Well - for starters - a whole bunch of years ago - the dude up there in the red shirt was born!

And on top of that... that little guy he's holding was born 8 years ago today too!

Then - to put the cherry on top - these two best friends tied the knot 17 years ago today too!

So there ya have it - Triple Threat Day.

And between birthday parties, basketball games, service night at church, presents and cake...

Triple Threat day was INSANE!

Stay crazy, November 9th... STAY CRAZY!

You're looking at it!

The Girl Is A Gift

This girl right here is an ABSOLUTE GIFT...

Her ability to empathize with people and feel and understand what they are feeling... is an amazing gift from God!

The past 72 hours have been... let's say... CHALLENGING... around here.

Lots of parenting ups and downs that may have left us feeling a bit inadequate.

So what's this girl do?

She recognized some hurt in her mommy - and she went to work!

She left this card full of life-giving words and love on Laura's bed for her to find once Mebbie was gone to school.

And while it brought Laura to tears... they were GOOD TEARS this time!

Never stop flexing the muscles HE gave you, Mebbie!

Book Buddies

Walked in on these two pretty ladies enjoying a good book!

Seemed like one of them was doing all the work though...

I love that Mebbie loves reading as much as she does... and loves her Golden Girl just as much too!

Never stop reading, Mebbie! That's how ya GROW and LEARN!

Meditative Weirdo

Walked into the kitchen to this absolute weirdo tonight...

He's been on this "look what I can do!" kick where he tucks his little flexible legs up and assumes some sort of meditation posture.

But it's his goofy faces that have me cracking up!

Stay flexible, Z-Dogg... and stay chill!

Sleepy, Sleepy, Sleepy!

A long day caught up with somebody!

Dude's sleepiness was making me feel sleepy too!

Don't worry Z-Dogg... you get an extra hour tonight to catch up on some sleep!

Don't squander that free hour of comfy snooziness!

Sleep well, Z-Dogg!

12 Years!

Today we celebrated 12 years of life for this gorgeous girl right here!

Seems like yesterday we were cradling her in our arms - and now we're counting down the days until she's a TEENAGER - one year left!

Happy Birthday, Meron Asher!

Happy Halloween!

They're getting older... but that doesn't mean they don't wanna dress up and run around getting free candy!

Meron stuck with her tried and true Troy Polamalu costume!

Z-Dogg went as the neighborhood ninja...

And Mebbie made a princess outfit look STUNNING!

And they came home, candy counted and hooked daddy up with the Reese's!

Great night guys!

Happy Halloween, everybody!

Snow Day Work

Just because they cancelled school today - didn't mean there wasn't work to do!

Zechie bundled up and jumped right in to help out too!

Thanks for putting in work on a day off, Z-Dogg!

Best crew around!

Stay wild, goofballs!

Hardware Installation

Somebody got some new hardware installed today!

And so begins the journey down the path of orthodontics for Meron!

And while she can't eat a lot of the goods she really likes to eat - she definitely deserved a soft serve treat for being a big girl during the install!

Now to see if it does what it's supposed to do!

Hang in there, Meron!

Winter in the Fall

When it's looking like this outside and they've already cancelled school for tomorrow (for the second time this fall)...

Sleep in tomorrow, homies... cuz ya can!

Enjoy it today - who knows what coming next (it's Colorado!)

This girl here... she just has it.

You know what I mean...


God gifted her with athleticism and talent around sports.

She can run.

She can throw.

She can catch.

She can dribble.

She can shoot.

She has great balance and awareness.

The girl is an athlete - no doubt - and the beautiful thing about it is this - she doesn't even know it and she'd never flaunt it!

I love watching her do her thing in every sport she plays.

Use the gifts He gave you, Mebbie!!

Staying Fit... Having Fun!

Man... one of my favorite things to do is to hit the field with this crew and be goofy and crazy and have fun while modeling staying fit...

Goofy is just part of who we are...

I don't think dude even knew we were creeping on him!

I think he was on to us at this point though!

Things usually end up getting a little crazy...

And we love it!

They're some of my favorite people to stay fit with!

Stay strong, goofballs... STAY STRONG!

Some of My Reasons

You're staring at three of the reasons I get up every morning and keep on keeping on!

Grateful for the lives of these three and the gift of them in my life.

Daddy loves you, goofballs!

You're Beautiful... Now Go Away!

Come on!?!?!

I mean we went from gorgeous sunny blue skies to blowing snow in what felt like minutes today!

And look... you're beautiful and all... Snow...but...

Go Away!

Seriously snow... we haven't even carved up this guy yet!

And you got us out here looking like "Sleigh bells ring... are ya listening?"

Time and place, winter. Time and place.

We love you, Winter... but give us back our Fall!
