He is ALIVE!

Casey J couldn’t have put it better than when he told me this morning as we were on our way to church that “Jesus is ALIVE today!” I’m working on installment three of the vacation journey (photos are done, story is not yet) and also uploading more photos. While you wait I wanted to share this video which was part of the service at our church this morning. I thought it was awesome.

Hoping you all had a wonderful Easter, however you celebrated it.

Ahhh, pits

As the Z Man would say when something didn’t quite work out but wasn’t a super big deal. I had a video of Caesy J singing his heart out – he’s turned over a new leaf and has been performing since this weekend but Vimeo has me in queue at 160 minutes before they convert my video. So I suppose we’ll all have to wait until tomorrow. Big spring break plans were made this weekend and the boys are seriously excited, as am I. It’ll be a great time to get a ton of photos, which I haven’t had much time for lately.

We got a fair amount of rain today although we need much more. It helped with my allergies a bit which are really affecting my sleep more than anything. I can deal with it during the day but not being able to breathe at night makes it tough and if I take something to help me sleep I have really weird dreams. Lots going on, lots to write about as soon as I have two seconds to spare.

Chewy

In my own defense I am NOT a Star Wars geek, but I am surrounded on all sides by them. Big C made the comment the other day that if he was ever on a game show and the question was about Star Wars he’d call the Z Man as his lifeline. Seriously. That big of a geek, and I mean geek in a very endearing way. He is after all my geek. On that note, I found a few Star Wars YouTubes the other day and for some non-specific reason I feel compelled to share.


The Z and I giggle at this one the other day, then he went and tried every cabinet door we had to see if we had our own “Chewy”


This guy dresses up like a clone trooper and goes out all around Tokyo and dances… hmmm….

New Hairstyle

Rock Dude Hairstyle

This crazy guy has a newly requested hair style for the last two days in a row. So for the last two days I have documented his new hair and new attitude (somehow this particular hair style gives him a whole new aura). This whole hair thing started about two weeks ago when I took the boys to get their hair cuts. While we were waiting for our turn the boys flipped through a few books and Z Man found a hairstyles for men book and proceeded to pick out a style that looked a lot like his dad’s hair. Casey J didn’t really seem to care about any particular style. Getting their hair cut now is such a breeze compared to two years or even a year ago. You see I got really tired of loading the boys into the car and driving to either Austin or San Antonio to find a Cool Cutz 4 Kids – they’ll cut your kids hair no matter how old they are or how much they squirm. The ending result of said hair cut not really being a concern for them and charging me about $30 in the end. It didn’t matter that they could sit and watch a movie or play a game while they got their hair cut, they still hated it.

So in desperate attempt to find sanity I complained one day while getting my hair cut about the lack of places in town to get kiddoe hair cuts and my hair cut lady gladly volunteered to cut their hair! Score. Seriously. So for the same price she became their “hair cut lady” and did what she could while they squirmed in my lap. Sometimes they wouldn’t get a full hair cut, just a trim in the front or back and after a few trips it would all be done. Although I always ended up looking like Chewbacca had just sat on my lap and got his hair cut.  Z Man has and still does have a serious fear of the trimmer so he requests a “scissor” only cut and holds seriously still now. They both can sit by themsleves and make it through the whole thing and come out with a nice trim. Want to take a wild guess what they fiddle with while sitting in her chair getting the hair do done?

New Digs – Coming Soon

I’ll be moving my blog to a new server along with a snappy new layout this weekend. I’ll hold off posting until I get it all moved. If you visit and things look weird or aren’t working, be patient it’ll be up by the end of the weekend. 🙂
