We like our dudes naked from head to toe!

Well… we were disappointed about the Super Bowl, but we had a wonderful afternoon/evening in the Koala Cove clubhouse with our families and friends. We did a Zoom with the grandparents on the big screen t.v. and it was great. They’ve all received the first of their Covid shots – with the second ones scheduled before the end of the month. We’re hoping that means maybe we can all get together sometime this summer.
While we were watching the game, Dub looked at me and said “If the line can’t protect him, Patrick can’t win the game for us.” He was right 🙂

It’s Brad’s birthday… and that’s got everyone smiling!

Brad, we haven’t heard from you recently but as far as we’re concerned, you are and always be an important part of our URD family. Happy birthday, babe! We hope this finds you, hubby and Yaris happy and well and surviving the pandemic unscathed. We love you and wish you every happiness on your birthday and throughout the coming year. xox David, Ben and the Northland gang.

Barefoot boys with cheeks of…

We’ve done tons of “holes ‘n soles” posts over the years, but maybe not one where all the dudes still had all the natural hair “God gave ’em”. So, here are a bunch of boys who either don’t own razors – or at least don’t use them on their butt hair. YUM!


Hey, guys. It’s Chad. I saw on the “sneakers” post, that “bw,” “Denny” and “Kent” all mentioned Matty and wanted to know how he’s doing. The short answer is he’s doing fine. It’s been a little over three months since Rafe and I started “fostering” him and it’s been a whirlwind. The wedding… and moving to Table Rock… and the pandemic… and leasing a new house… and getting a new “schoolhouse”… and learning new languages…and so much more. If you think about how all this has impacted out little guy, it’s mind-blowing. We’re so proud of him and the way he’s adapted and he always has one of the greatest smiles God ever put on a kid’s face.
Last week, our attorney called and asked if we wanted to adopt “Mateo.” We said, “Of course” but we haven’t been fostering him all that long and don’t know how the State people would feel about that. Our attorney said she thought this might be the perfect time to file for adoption. She said Covid-19 has resulted in a “real mess” in the Department of Social Services and she thinks they’re trying to “work through foster cases” as rapidly as possible. So, we filed all the paperwork and we’re waiting to hear from the DSS. Our attorney says it may be several weeks before we get an answer, but she’ll stay on top of it. Raef and I are excited about the possibility of being “real parents” – and maybe a little scared too. We’d really appreciate your thoughts and prayers! xoxo Chad and Raef
