Daddy Daughter Time

This is for Samantha.. thanks for the tag.. here goes my 4th pic in my photo album

This is one of my favorite pictures of Zo and Nia. Nia was 4lbs 3oz... she probably was 4lbs 7oz in this pic she was 3 days old and I needed rest.. I can remember being so tired.. Larenzo had just came home from school and work.. I remembered he had so much homework to do but he tucked me into bed and took Nia and they did homework together. He laid here on her pillow that she still sleeps on till this day and he had his keyboard just typing away while she slept. When I finally woke up I snapped this pic. What a great husband and father Nia and I have been blessed with.

I tag anyone who is up for the challenge to go into their pics and pic out the fourth photo and tell a bit about it.. It sure does bring up fond memories..

Family Adventures....

Well this past month was great.. I finally had the chance to meet my mother- n-law who is a trip and a half.. she was way to funny.. I see where Zo gets alot of his attitude and his looks from. We took her up to Temple Square and she loved it.. she fit in just fine and she understood many of the principles we believe in... one day you guys... one day!! Nia loved her granny being here.. she couldnt sleep at night because she was so excited.. that means momma didnt sleep either!!
It was sad when mom had to leave, there was an emptiness in the home... probably becuase i enjoyed the adult interaction during the day.. Nia knew she was gone too though...she was pretty sad. That was until I took my baby to McDonalds... she love to eat what can I say!
Well the at home job I started didnt work out so well so now I'm just chillin during the day.. trying to keep up on my house work.. I must admit I dont miss getting up at 4am every morning!
So guess what!!!.... keep guessing... no that wasnt it.... give up yet... oh heck I'll just tell you... WE'RE BUYING A HOUSE!!! YEAH!!! We finally decided to get a home of our own.. we hate that we're leaving the ward we are in but we will still have those friends that we love so much... (you know who you are!!) We'll still play Zilch from time to time right??? Heck yeah.. Ya'll cant get rid of the DeGraffenreidts that easily!!! We're also looking for renters for the townhome that we are in currently... if you know of anyone let us know!! Well I promise I will keep you current...oh and dont forget to smile it increases you face value!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
