Momzoo

Momzoo is the better half of Dadzoo. She is my loving wife and eternal companion. She is the mother of my children, and the voice that gives me strength, guidance, and love.

15 Years and counting…

NOTE: This post is not political in nature, and may been seen by some as a little sappy.  This is a heart felt post.  You have been warned.

The best thing that ever happened to me started because a friend of mine (co-worker) was a visiting teacher to a lady who had an open employment opportunity for a Computer Geek at a local Credit Union.   That friend knew that I was about to explode into my career path with a brand new shinny IS&T degree.  One thing lead to another and I found myself working for that Credit Union. This …

14 Years


14 years today Aimee (momzoo) and I got married.  Over the 14 years I have been able to get to know this women of character and strength.  The one thing that I love about her the most is her willingness to follow the plan that our Heavenly Father has set for his daughters.   She understands that role, and is willing to put aside herself to follow that role.  She is a very passionate Wife, Mother, and Daughter of God.

During the past 14 years, she has put aside her needs to follow her Godly nature.   It has not been easy …

Natural Child Birth – Husband/Father perspective

I have seen the birth of 6 children (with another on the way).  The first 5 children were done with medical help and intervention.  They included an epidural and were induced.   Momzoo wanted to do what people refer to as a natural childbirth.  By natural child birth we at this point are talking about no epidural, and letting the labor and delivery progress on their own.  Momzoo did just that.  In July of 2011 we had our 6th child.  She was born without an epidural, as well as no medical help to induce labor.  Momzoo writes about it on her …

Traditions of their fathers.

Book of Mormon and other scriptures prophets always warn and talk about the “traditions of their fathers“.   Momzoo and I have been thinking a lot about Christmas Traditions, and other holiday traditions that have been part of our childhood and part of the popular culture.

Some of the scriptures talk about how people that fall in unbelief and move away from the traditions of their fathers, but then other scriptures talk about how people are in unbelief because of the incorrect traditions of their fathers.   The later is the topic of this post.   And when I say “traditions of their …

What I have learned as my hair gets grayer.

I am now 41 years old, and my hair has become mostly gray.   I have also been married for almost 14 years (in March) to a very loving and patient wife (momzoo).  During the course of 13 years of marriage, and 41 years of time, there are a few things I have learned and have picked up.  (And at times, I need to sit down and remind myself of them.)

These are just some random thoughts that I have had in the last little while.

FAMILY

Family IS the greatest source of Joy.   There is nothing more powerful then a …

Your one of those!

We recently purchased a 12 Passenger Chevy Express 2500 Van.  After mistakingly thinking that we were done having kids, we are now expecting our 6th child (Girls 5, Boys 1).  The old Chevy Venture was no longer going to fit our family.  The family now calls this new van the BASS.  Punk #5  can now be heard saying,  “Look, Mom, there is another BASS.”   If it is big, has the Chevy symbol on its grille, it is a BASS.  The BASS has changed our lives.  The perception of our neighbors, family, and those seeing us on the …

Momzoo – Happy Birthday

Tomorrow is Momzoo’s birthday (4/27).  I wanted to be the first to do a virtual happy birthday, so here it is.

Momzoo is a country girl at heart.  She would like a big plot of land and a few farm animals.  Because she married a computer geek, that dream is hard to make a reality.  My skills require me to work for a bigger company.   This makes it so that we have to stay close to large populations centers.  We have looked at land in OK, and some other southern states.  There are some states that still have large …

Run to Walk

We have just signed the entire family (Dadzoo, Momzoo, and the 5 kids) up to do the 1 Mile walk.  We have a lot of relatives that are also going to do the Run to Walk.   If anyone wants to join us, feel free to sign up.   We have a cousin that uses this service, and anyone that signs up and lets them know it is for Stoney Alder he will get a discount on his next visit.

Boy Touch…. Girl Touch….

This weekend was a FUN weekend.  After the regular Saturday and Sunday events, we had a day to ourselves.  If you can call it that.  Momzoo and I went to one of the local fruit stands to buy several boxes of tomatoes.  Then she spent the day making tomato soup, stewed tomatoes, and today she will be making tomato sauce.  The rest of the family got to let their hair down.  (I am sure that we will see a post by Momzoo on her canning activities shortly.)

Our family discovered a fun game, it started when Momzoo and I were …

Just about anything.

Momzoo that other day was shopping at Barnes and Noble and found a notebook that she fell in love with.  It is an old leather notebook that has pages without lines (momzoo’s is the top one, in the picture above) .  She has since started to just write and doodle in this notebook during the day, before she goes to bed, etc.  

I don’t look in her notebook unless she lets me, and when she does, I am amazed at some of the drawings, doodles, and thoughts that she has put to paper.

Then I was at Barnes and Noble …
