Happy Father's Day




Husband- Happy Father's day.....you are so much more than a father, you are a daddy. Even after a long day at work, you are so involved with the kids. When they hear your car (and the loud music) they rush to the door waiting to see you. I think the kids are finally getting used to you after the deployment. Seeing them cuddled up with you listening to your goofy "Fred the Shark" stories just makes me laugh. I am so glad they are growing up with a daddy like you.

From your card: "For all the times I felt it but somehow forgot to show it, for all the times I dreamed it but forgot to let you know it, for all the times I thought it but it stayed inside my head, for all the times I meant it but I didn't get it said, I love you!" t.-


as told to me from Olivia on Thursday June 12, 2008....(age three and two-quarters)


Livi- Daddy, I love you daddy. My favorite things about daddy is that he tickles us. I like his name. and, and, and, he likes loud music. I like to go on trips with him, like going to a restaurant. Can we do that again? Just me and daddy..


My favorite thing daddy makes is pancakes and sausage. Oh yeah, and maple syrup. Did you write the maple syrup?


as told to me by Will....age 5


Will- Daddy, I love you so much that I love you ....I want you to give me a tickle. I like tickling. I like to play with you all the time. Like playing trains. We play with each other all the time. I love to listen to your made up stories. I love your popcorn the best. I eat it and eat it until it is all gone. I love to play everything with you better than anyone in the whole wide world. Me and daddy are silly!
