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!

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!

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!

Mebski Love - I See You Reminder!

This girl here... she's an absolute walking bundle of JOY!

She loves deeply... cares with her whole heart... and empathizes like nobody i have ever met!

She's a peacemaker and a lover of glasses that are half full... she finds the positive in everything and everybody!

And this is my quarterly reminder to her...

Daddy sees you, Mebbie! Stay amazing!

Happy Dude

Somebody had been playing catch with the tiniest little sorry excuse for a football imaginable... so he was SUPER STOKED when we stopped on the way to the field to get him a junior sized one with some grippy grip to it!

This guy loves him some football - and I was amazed at how that grip made his catches seem effortless!

I can't get enough of this dude's "happy new football" smile!

Stay shining, Z-Dogg!

Windy Freezing Football

The goofball crew and I hit the field this afternoon... new football in hand... ready to run some routes.

The wind was nuts and the temperature was steady dropping... but they ALL ran some routes and caught some passes.

Then we jumped around a bit to stay warm!

Way to play, goofballs!

Ain't No Half-Steppin'

This girl right here... she LOVES to serve and work and get things done...

Tonight - she wasn't even scheduled for it or anything - but she went to the Saturday service at church to help out with sound and lights.

She's a champion like that!

Way to do your thing, Meron!

She gets the job done!

Guess Who's Back? Back Again...

Heard some noise out front last night and checked the Ring camera for any commotion...

Had this lovely little surprise out there!

Looks like things with the weirdo elf aren't over just yet!

zElf is back... tell your friends...

She's All That...

She's pre-teeny... she's angsty... she's moody... she's grumpy...

She's also fearfully and wonderfully made!

She's loving... she's caring... she's funny... she's silly... she's happy...

And she'll FOREVER be my baby girl!

Carry a Big Stick...

"Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far!"

Nobody is ever going to accuse Z-Dogg of speaking softly (well unless he is in trouble but that's a different story!)

But carrying a big stick?


Keep carrying that stick, Z-Dogg!

And oh yeah... never lose that smile!

Go far, Zechariah... GO FAR!

Daddy... Can You Start Calling Me "Mell-o" ???

Mebbie came to me with an odd request tonight:

"Daddy... can you start referring to me as 'Mell-o' from here on out?"
I was like... "HUH??"

She proceeded to explain to me that she and one of her friends had come up with their own "hip-hop nicknames" and she was really wanting to start using it... in hopes that it will stick.

So there ya have it ladies and gentlemen... I give you... Mell-o!

Hello... Mell-o!

More Beautiful Than Yellow Aspens

Okay... so we may not have found the secret stash of bursting Aspen groves full of yellow gorgeousness...

But who needs it when you have this beautiful trio tagging along?

Yellow trees or not - this crew had a great time hiking around the woods!

Welcome to fall, people!
