We have a house in our house

I got LeAnne this cool cardboard cottage that she can color and then play inside of it.  I slightly under estimate the actual size of the thing. It takes up half of our kitchen.  She is having a blast coloring it and playing inside of it.  One of these days when I can no longer stand it in our kitchen it may be moving outside for the remaining of its days. :-)

Sprinkler time!!

What a beautiful day!  It was between 85 - 90 degrees.  LeAnne put on her gorgeous new Disney Princess bathing suit, put on sun block and ran through the sprinkler in our back yard.  She LOVED it!!

Happy Father's Day!

As I sit here trying to think of the right words to best celebrate and honor the father's closest to me in my life none seem to do justice to the smile on my face.

I smile when I think about those quiet moments I've shared with my dad where he told me he was proud of me.  I smile when I think about a conversation I had with my dad when I was in my young 20's, here I was expecting yet another lecture about going to college when he started talking about me following my passion.  I smile when I think about all the telephone calls where my dad has just listened, he didn't offer any one piece of advice, he didn't tell me what to do, instead he just listened and told me he knew I'd make the best decision.  Thank-you dad!

Talking to my dad the morning after LeAnne was born!

He was so excited to meet his grand-daughter! :-)

I smile when I think about the man God blessed my life with.  One of the first things that attracted me to him was how he treated his daughter.  I am thankful for his leadership as the head of our family.  I love watching him with our daughters.  I appreciate the time he takes to teach our daughters important life lessons as well as the time he spends having fun with them.  Thank-you for being an awesome daddy to our children!  I love you!!
