Great video!!! Good job putting it together, mom!

I have to ask...where do you guys live? I'm in TX too (right outside of Tyler in a little town called Whitehouse). I keep seeing the A&M stuff in pictures & in this video, so I'm curious.

Love your blog!!

Great video!! You guys are doing such a great job of documenting your babies lives and your lives with them....I am a mom to twins and I'm overwhelmed sometimes in trying to make sure they have "normal" lives and that they each get their own special memories. Great job!!

I started bawling before the video even began! You have the most beautiful, amazing family and I love reading your blog. That last pic of the 4 kids with Joe totally made the tears pour, as did every pic of Joe with Savannah, who looks just like her daddy! I love the last pic of Daddy with Ben too. HAPPY FATHER'S DAY JOE!!!!!

How sweet! Look how those babies are growing!!!

And, seriously, how did you not cry (or maybe you did) while putting this together?

Scott said...

Hi there!

I have been following your fam's blog ever since your beautiful babe's were born and I simply can not keep quiet any longer! haha. As a soon-to-be first time mommy myself, this video almost has me in tears! Suz - you and Joe remind me a lot of me and my hubby and I just can't wait to see the love of my life become a dad for the first time. I know he is going to be such a wonderful, loving father and I am certain I am going to fall in love with him all over again! We are 8 months pregnant now and anxiously awaiting the birth of our first son, and I just want to thank you for sharing all the love that your family has for one another with the rest of us! I have told my husband about your blog before and he has mixed emotions about me "lurking" into your lives when we don't even know you! LOL. I can certainly understand that, as I think it is kind of weird too! However, I am going to MAKE him watch this video tonight. I know he will tear up just like I did! haha. Okay, enough with the novel. Just wanted to finally reveal myself and say that your family is absolutely precious. God Bless! Steph, from Arkansas. :)

Stephanie said...

your family is CRAZY fun! I hope it is ok if I add you to my list of links. I have to come back.

Long time reader, first time blogger. I check your blog almost everyday for updates and I have to say you guys are wonderful. As a mother of 2, I cant imagine how hard it must be to juggle everything times four. I wanted to tell you that the video was awesome and you have a wonderful family.

By the way, who sings the song on the video? Great song!

Suz,

SUCH A SWEET TRIBUTE TO THE QUAD DADDY!!!! I am smiling and just feel all warm and snuggly inside...my favorite is when Joe is going back and forth between two of the kiddos, maybe the twins, in the swings, kissing one and then the other....oh, so sweet! What a great thing for him to cherish for years to come! Sorry I didn't text you back...not long after I got your text a tornado hit Childress, go figure, so our cell service has been so-so and we've been cleaning up and trying not to DIE of heat exhaustion and no AC bc the electricity is out...but it's FINALLY back...woo hoo! Anyway, I will post all about it later! Thanks for asking about the baby progress...two IUI's and no success yet, so we're taking a break but have SO MUCH FAITH that God's plan is bigger than ours! We are hopeful and thanks for the prayers!

lori said...

what a beautiful tribute!

Amy Jane said...

Suzanne,
I know you don't remember me at all, but I am continually amazed at what a small world it is. A friend sent me a link to your blog that she had discovered through a friend of a friend. I opened the link and knew you looked so familiar. I found the post of the "history of Joe & Suz" and then it all clicked. I hired you and Lauren at Hastings one summer back in the day. Wild, I know! I told my friend the connection and we both commented how crazy it is. Anyways, I'm loving reading all about your lives and wish you the best. God bless!

lauren said...

That was so sweet! Happy Father's Day to such a sweet, loving daddy! It's amazing how much they've grown and changed in their short life! So, so, so, SO precious!

lauren said...

Also, Ben totally has your smile/laugh in that last picture with just him and Joe!

Unsinkable Kristen said...

And seriously, so well done - the music, the pictures, the seamless transitions - GOSH you are awesome :)

Happy Fathers Day Joe!

Carmen Taylor said...

Great video, cried and cried. I am a nurse at a NICU in OKC and your blog is the highlight of the night shift. We all gather around to see what the quads are up to. They are amazing and so is your family! Thanks for reminding us why we do what we do!
God is good!!!

~K said...

Awesome video! It made me cry; what an amazing ride this has turned out to be for you! Blessings still and always!

~K said...

Great job with the video! What a wonderful way to show all of us what a great father Joe is! Very sweet and I loved it! Thanks for adding Shiloh to the mix...miss seeing her with the kiddo's!

Blessings!
Kristy

Kimberly said...

Suz, that is awesome! I am so impressed with your technical skills as well!
Joe is such a great dad and I love all of his big expressions. You can soo tell the quads just eat him up and think he is hillarious!!

Leslie A said...

What a sweet daddy! And a sweet family. I love when the kiddos laugh in the videos...which seems to be often!

Glenn Roush said...

Well Joe got a late Fathers Day gift- KG and the Celtics won the championship. I know he would have rather seen KG get it with the T-Wolves.

I used to work for the Timberwolves so I am definitely excited for KG.

Beautiful...just beautiful. One very proud Dad and 4 very blessed and lucky children.

ARiley said...

Definantely teared up! Great video! How lucky you are to be blessed with 4 little beautiful miracles!

Jocelyn said...

Your blog is such a wonderful tribute to the life you have made. I got the link from a friend and have sat in Panera for 2 hours reading past posts (As you can tell, I do NOT have four babies to take care of!) I have loved reading it. Yours is such an inspiring story and I love how you and Joe parent with such an awareness of God's plan for you. I will definitely be back to read more!

Brian Burkett said...

AWESOME, my fellow QuadFather! We have some awesome wives, man...

that is a sweet video!

I can never get over how stinkin cute your kids are! Sav has got one of the best smiles I've ever seen in my life. Between Sav, Anna, and Allie, you and I have a lot of teenage boys to fight off in a few years! *lol*

Leslie said...

I don't know how you and Joe do it! I can tell he is a great dad from the expressions on your kiddos faces. They are all so beautiful!! Love the video Suz.

Anonymous said...

Wow.

Thanks for making me CRY.
Do you know what the video makes me think of??
Honestly??
What an AWESOME God we have.
I am SOOO stinkin' proud of you, JOE! The kids are SOO lucky.
No. I really mean it. They are.

Shell said...

So beautiful!!! I have a 5 month old and I am always exhausted!! I admire you so much!!! You and your husband are truly amazing people!!!! Your story is an inspiration!!!!!

Blessings From Above said...

Love, love, LOVE the video!

Happy (belated) Father's Day Joe!

Aimee & Hannah said...

OK THANX FOR THE GOOD CRY!!! Great job on getting that one together!!! HPPY FATHER'S DAY JOE!!! ;o)

Rachel said...

hey :) I'm Rachel...I've been reading for almost a year now, way to intimidated by the size of the situation to think I had anything to offer, however...I thought you should know what an amazing family you have. I'm sure people tell you all the time, but its still very true, and your life is an example to me that people can go through alot and make it safely to the other side. To sum it up...God is wonderful, and amazing. :)
xx

Rachel said...

I've been reading for probably a year now, right before your babies were born. Its taken me alot to work up the courage to comment amid the hustle and bustle of real life friends. Alas here I am, hehe. I just wanted to tell you at least once how much I admire you. Your life and your husband's life proves to me that people can go through a whole lot and come out alive and well on the other side. What I'm trying to say ever so delicately is that you and your husband are amazing people, and I am so happy just to have gotten the chance to take it all in from the sidelines. It has made me laugh bucketfuls and cry too. All in all I love you guys in a normal, not stalkerish sense, and I know God will bless you infinitely :) xx

Jeana said...

GREAT Video...so sweet!! Who is that song by? :-)
LOVE all your posts!!

Riley said...

Great video Suz!! You guys are such wonderful parents. Love you guys!

Brooke said...

I'm a blog stalker and have never commented before but I can't help but comment after watching that tear jerker video. What an amazing daddy and he looks like he was a natural from the beginning. Most guys aren't a natural with 1, so to be a natural with 4 is pretty amazing! You have a beautiful family.

Kristy said...

Yep, definitely sitting in my office crying right now. Great job with the video, Suz, I'm impressed! Happy late Father's Day to Joe, we love you all. Should be seeing you relatively soon, we're headed to Texas for a week in July!
