Brench-Pressing People {and physics journals}

So, here's something fun that happened when Brenden was home last weekend.

He's really into working out, so he decided to bench press Lucy.

She thought it was the funniest thing ever!

And then, way less adorable, but much more impressive...
it was MY turn.

Brace yourselves.

Wow, that's probably the most flattering photo I have of me to date.

And here's something else very interesting.
Brenden left his physics journal on the kitchen table, and I couldn't help but take a peek.
And I was like, WOW! it's almost identical to MY physics journal entries!

It's my pleasure to have passed on my brains, looks, and talents to all of my children!

Have a great day, folks!
And don't forget to write in your physics journals.
You don't want to get rusty with your formulas and whatnot!

Lori Shops Online {fail}

In case you were wondering, this is what happens when Lori shops online for a swimsuit:

This means one of two things:

1.  Either I'm really bad at ordering a tankini off the internet (hence the absence of the the "tank" part.)

2.  Or perhaps K-Man is taking me on a trip to a topless beach??

Let's definitely go with #1, for goodness sake.

Now please excuse me while I go order a top...or two.

Lori's 3rd Annual Easter Extravaganza!

Today we had a fun-filled day as we celebrated our risen Lord!
Lots of good food and fellowship with K-Man's side of the family at our house.

It was my 3rd annual Egg and Scavenger Hunt!

Here's the pictorial:

Brenden and my Mom-in-law. 

The egg hunt about to begin!

The scavenger hunt!!

Family time!


Lori's Crazy Easter Hair! 

My bro-in-law and my great-nephew!

My nephew and great-nephew!

My K-Man and my girly!


More fun!

My big boys and me!

More and more fun!

Nick and Mater!

And that's about it.  We had a lovely day!
(I sure missed MY side of the family though!)

I hope you all had a blessed Easter as well.

And may we celebrate our Redeemer EVERY single day!!

Easter 2014!

Happy Easter, my friends!  I do hope that you are celebrating and worshiping our risen Savior!  If you don't have a church you regularly attend, ask a friend with whom you could go!  And if you live near ME, come to MY church!  What a delight it would be to have you there!!  (Seriously, email me if you want details.

We dyed Easter eggs last night for the very first time with the adopted crew (well, the little one else was interested. Whatever!).

One of them asked me where we would insert the candy.  What the what?  They were completely clueless of the boiled (REAL) egg procedure.  So it was fun to see them experience it for the first time!  (But as a mom who's been doing this for 20+ years, I'm just so very tired.  SO tired.)

Here's the pictorial:

And Brenden is home!  But since he doesn't like to be photographed (along with the rest of the Big crew), here is one of the few photos I got of him, in his native state.  Happy to be here, but annoyed that I would dream of taking a pic of him.

And that's about it, my Easters friends!  Enjoy your weekend as you praise and worship our Redeemer!!

Mater and Me

Goodness gracious.  I have never in my life been a dog person.  Oh, sure...I love my Zekey, and I sure did adore my Domino (RIP), but I still have never thought of myself as a dog-lover.

But I'll tell you something.  Everything has changed because NOW I am a grandmama to a new grand-doggy!  Nick got a new dog and I am loving him so much.  His name is Mater.  And he is so sweet.  And the thing is, I love having a little someone to nurture that doesn't require anything of me except a limited amount of my time.  Which makes me want to give him ALL my time!  (Okay, not really.  But sort of.)

Here's what we did yesterday:

He's so happy, can't you tell?  And perhaps a tad frightened by my high-pitched-grandma squeals of praise.

Have a happy Tuesday, people!  And hug your fury friends, okay?  

(Ya'll could probably make some serious cash by placing bets on how long I last in this current state of crazy.)
