Happy Father's Day!

This is a very different Father's Day for me. My Dad is gone this year. This is the first year to not see my Dad on Father's Day. He passed away July 3, 2010. I miss him and miss getting him a card and something for Father's Day....a German Chocolate cake with Coconut Icing, a short sleeve button down shirt, a bottle of Old Spice. 

You are on our minds and in our hearts today Dad! We miss you and love you!

My children are so blessed to have the Daddy they have. He is a great one and adores his babies. They treat him with so much respect. He is such a good Dad and most of all a wonderful Christian man who they can look up to. He got to spend the weekend with all of them and they spoiled him. We went to Cheesecake Factory for a fabulous meal. And Dad got a brand new ice cream machine as well as some pretty exciting news that he is going to be a Grandpa! 
Thank you for being such a loving wonderful Dad and an awesome husband!
