Father's Day 2009

Happy Father's Day to my dad and to my husband, the 2 finest men I know.

Today, I am grateful to my dad for:

*having the most generous of hearts
*coaching and cheering for my sister and I in all the sports we played
*taking us through the McDonalds drive thru after basketball games (who knew then what we know now?!)
*leading by example in the areas of hard work, service to others, and dedication to family
*carrying our sleds up the long, steep hill after my sister and I effortlessly sledded down
*coming to visit me when I lived in Washington state
*always making sure that we had a way to call home for free ;)
*supporting me in many ways through college
*falling in love with Isabella
*for still taking our growing family on family vacations

Happy Father's Day, Dad!

Today I am grateful for my husband, a wonderful father, for

*being incredibly patient, gentle, and kind
*working so hard to support our family
*treating Isabella as the "sunshine" in his life
*reading book after book after book after...
*playing guitar to help our baby/toddler to relax
*making all of us laugh and take life a little less seriously
*running all over the county for homeopathic remedies and pregnancy cravings when one or both of us are ill
*making the morning coffee
*believing in me as a stay at home mom
*being the "sunshine" in our lives

Happy Father's Day, Dave!
