A Classy Steak Dinner

During our quad-couple trip to Lake Tahoe a few weeks ago, we ended Saturday night with a classy steak dinner grill-out on our patio. It was an amazing ending to such a wonderful week with friends! And to top it all off, as we were pouring A1 sauce onto our plates...we happened to notice something very peculiar......an odd thing to have on a bottle of steak sauce for sure...


Click on the picture and read very closely...







I love how Joe summed it up in an email to our friends:


The A-1 bottle…I don't even know what to say other than "somebody" already had
this all planned out for us and it was His way of saying "you're welcome"

Awwwwww (tear)!.....There is no such thing as coincidence! I love you guys!

Well, you know how I feel about coincidences from reading my blog...they are nonexistent! I couldn't stop staring at the bottle of A-1...seriously, my mouth was open and the first thing I thought was that Joe had done a really great graphics job on it! Ha! That is a great ending...one for the movies!

Kelly said...

Funny and sweet!!

Hollie said...

WOW, that is pretty amazing. What a cool moment for all of you to see that together! And you are absolutely right, there are no "coincidences"!

Perfect, Divine intervention I would say.
As Carol Burnett used to say " So glad Y'all had that time together"

horton_crew said...

Yep, Joe summed it up perfectly! Who would even imagine something like that! Awesome....

horton_crew said...

One more thing. Who is that odd little man sitting by the steak sauce? Becareful he looks shady!

I have been reading your blog for just a few weeks. When I found it, I sat up until after midnight reading your story from the very beginning!
Several things keep me coming back...
I had a singleton child in 2000 born at 29 weeks and I feel like I connect with you in medical issues.
Most importantly... Your love of GOD!
When I saw the A-1 bottle and the e-mail from Joe.... I had to write and saw, WOW O WOW! Ye, God had this planned all along!!!! How cool!
God is amazing and I love reading blogs that see these God moments and Praise Him because of those moments!
Woo Hoo!!!!
Happy Wednesday!

Andria said...

What? Coincidence??? THAT is too awesome. Who knew? lol.

I never tire of hearing about your amazing weekend.

(...I still wanna know about "Harry"?)

Jill said...

Wow! That gave me chills. It's awesome to see His plan worked out that way right in front of your eyes!

Barron Triplets said...

So very cool! I have come to believe the big man upstairs must have an awesome sense of humor!

Tamora said...

That is so very cool!!!!!!!!!! I am so glad you all had such a great trip! What a wonderful group of friends you have!

Terri O'Laughlin said...

Too funny about the bottle!

I must say, you have one of the sweetest husbands!!

Sara said...

Is that a GI Joe next to the A1?
That is really cool. I hope you guys saved the bottle or label.

Kate @ Life As I Live It said...

How cool! I love it when we pick up and recognize those little signs for what they are.

Jennifer said...

I saw that on an A1 bottle a couple weeks ago and thought of you guys!

Anonymous said...

that is too funny! Glad you guys had such a great time! I love reading your blog. You guys have such a great spirit in how you handle one another and your four babies. I feel like I am going crazy most days and I only have 2 little ones. You are an inspiration to all!

That's so neat...I'm glad you all enjoyed your visit w/friends! How awesome to have people who are right there with you on all that you are experiencing and going through in your life...the Lord sure does bless us by giving us friendship! :-)

Carol said...

That is amazing!

Barbara Manatee said...

OMG! How ironic and hilarious!! That was sooo meant to be!

Michelle said...

Coincidence? I think NOT! That is so neat! It's great that y'all got a picture of it (and with Indiana Jones or GI Joe too?) Even greater that y'all had a wonderful time together!

AWESOME!!!!

Michael and Hannah said...

You seriously make me want to have quads so I can be in "the club." I want to adopt myself into your too cool new group of friends, but alas, I only have two kids, and one at a time at that! This post begs the question... who brought an action figure on your holiday away from kids???

Anonymous said...

Are y'all planning on attending any Texas A&M games with the kiddos this fall?

Christi said...

My first thought was... A-1 on a steak... aren't you from Texas! What an AMAZING thing to see especially for all you special couples. God is a very funny person who really loves us and shows us in so many ways!
Thanks for sharing!

a cowgirl at heart said...

That's supposed to be Indiana Jones, isn't it? I know my Indy when I see him...

Elizabeth said...

That is so cool!

Aimee & Hannah said...

OH WOW!!! NOW THAT'S THE SAUCE!!!

Collegegirl said...

That is so cool!

Stacia said...

That was too funny!! And yes, I love what Joe wrote...very true! I'm so glad you all got to go on the trip to LT!! I've been visiting all 4 sites to get as much of the story as I can :-)

Goerlich Quadruplets said...

Amen to that! Everything was so amazing about that trip and the A-1bottle just topped it off. We probably would not have noticed the bottle if we hadn't had to look away from the blindingly clean table.
Spreadin' some H-town love, Chris

Amber S. said...

Wow! That is too cool. I mean, what are the odds? Then again, what are the odds of 4 cool Mommies delivering 4 precious babies and all meeting up and having such a special bond? Only GOD knows... *wink, wink*

Lees said...

Suz - OH MY GOSH - ok - this weekend I was making an EASY dish in the microwave and it calls for A1 sauce - so sent the hubby to the store and he brought back the new flavor... when I read the bottle I laughed and SERIOUSLY thought of you because you are the only person I "know" who has quads (sorry to use "know" so losely).

Anywhoo, You HAVE to send a pic of your quads to the A1 company... they all definately have 4 BOLD personalities!

Always a blessing to read about your adventures. Thanks for the great example and for sharing mommyhood with all of us!

I LOVE YOU GUYS!
XOXO
Gen (lol)

Jennifer said...

That is to funny!

Bethany said...

No. Way. Surely A1 will give you all a lifetime supply or something if you tell them this story!

The Epps Family said...

Oh my goodness!! That is without a doubt the coolest random connection. You all should get a "keepsake bottle" of A1!!! Suellen

Midwest Mommy said...

You guys are just too cute!

Quad Squad! said...

I'm so glad (and jealous) that you guys had such a good time! I know it must have been such a rejuvenating trip! Someday, we hope to take a childless trip too! Someday...

Barron Triplets said...

Can you please tell me where you found the disposable "Pampers Pocket Bibsters"? I have been looking everywhere and can't seem to spot them!

M said...

You are the cutest family EVER!

Meshellyn said...

Wow that is just so cool, I'm speechless!

Betsy McK said...

OMG, that's soooo cool! What a perfect ending for your quad trip!

Sooz said...

That is hysterical and so perfect. What a great way to finish the trip!

april said...

suz, i have a question:
i read your blog faithfully, i just love your family and outlook on life:) i notice your videos are so great and clear. i am on the lookout for a camcorder (i have a little boy who is 5 months old and i am missing all the great moments i want captured!!). what do you use and what would you recommend? i trust your judgement because you tape so much. i want to be able to watch the video on a DVD. i was looking at the hard drive cam's, but don't know if you can burn to a CD or not... thanks in advance!

Doug & Stacy Fournier said...

I sense a number theme here, 4! Four couples, all parents of quads! That bottle is definitely a sign! How cool is that for all of you to be there and see that! Very neat!

TONYA said...

HA, love that bottle. How cool. It was made for you.

Kelly said...

I was at my parents' house for dinner the other night and they had the same bottle. I had to laugh.

Corey and Marisa said...

I just found your blog through Arkansas Rachel's (McCoys Mama). You are an inspiring woman! I am looking forward to checking in and seeing how life with the Quads is going! You and your hubby sound like terrific parents! It can be tough having just one little one, but 4 all the same age?! God sure does choose the right parents!

God bless your beautiful family!

Justin & Shauri Phillips said...

That is crazy!!! I can't believe how much the babies have grown! They are all so beautiful!!
