Happy Father’s Day!

Dale,  Throughout the years, my love and respect for you has grown.

078

  I have watched you learn to be the Daddy God has called you to be.

038

  You teach our girls to expect to be treated with respect.

You will teach our boys to be hard workers and gentleman.

Your chest is the perfect fit for a newborn.

026

And I love that you have held each and every one of our children cradled in your arms this way.

011

  You are the best Daddy our kids could ever ask for.

081

You’re not just a superhero to the kids, you are mine too.

  Today, I honor you and thank you for all those things you do, that mean so very much.

It’s true what they say about a parent’s love…..

It never divides……it multiplies!

  Dale, Thank you for providing for our family, making life fun, and allowing me to be able to say, “Just wait until your father comes home.”

Love you bunches, ~T   xoxo

And to MY Daddy, Happy Father’s Day to you!!!!!  Thanks for all the times you encouraged me to do the right thing, shake it off, and just be a true to myself.  Your advice and support have gotten me through many a sticky situation! 034

  Oh, and you taught me how to say: “If the 2 of you don’t cut it out, I WILL pull this car over”, while still remaining eerily calm.  Works every time!  🙂

I love you! ~Your “Punkin”

“Me Too, Daddy!”

    Father’s Day is coming up, and it’s got me thinking and being extra thankful for Dale and the role he plays in our children’s lives.  It blesses me so much to watch them shadow him and want to do whatever he is up to.

From mowing, to shooting, golfing to grilling…….they want to be with Daddy!

Her reaction?  And I quote….

”That was AWESOME!”

“Cowboy” Tylan, learning to do the same, but a whole year younger, at age 4. (What’s next? Avery at age 3 and Pax at age 2, think again, Daddy-o!)

 One night a father overheard his son pray:

Dear God, Make me the kind of man my Daddy is.

Later that night, the Father prayed,

Dear God, Make me the kind of man my son wants me to be.
