Sunshine Sunday - Father's Day

Happy Father's Day.  Today I am especially thankful for the father that my husband is.

He is patient with our boys and teaches them step by step.


He loves to spoil them and share his favorite things with them.


He lets me go overboard on occasion.  (Like when I wanted to rent a cotton candy machine for Rex's first birthday.  We had a little extra.)

Best of all, he is a great example.  Someone once told me that when deciding who to marry, you should pick someone you'd be happy for your children to be just like.  I'm so glad I picked him.


Hope your father's day is beautiful.  See you tomorrow.

Quick funny story:  I bought my husband a waffle maker for father's day and Rex was with me.  He promised not to tell daddy.  Later his daddy was trying to get it out of him.  He told daddy we got him a pan that you pour batteries into (meaning batter).  My hubby didn't get it and I reminded Rex it was supposed to be a secret.  We happened to be putting Rex to bed just then and it was his turn to say the prayer.  He said, "...and thank you for WAFFLES!" in his prayer.  I guess he thought he'd give daddy one more chance to figure it out.  Never trust a two year old.

haha! i agree. i made a blanket for my husband for running 200 miles and it had a special gold ribbon and medal attached and i told my daughter who was helping me weave the ribbon not to tell daddy so whats the first thing she does when he comes home. "DADDY BLANKET!!" thankfully he didnt get it but then she found the card she picked out for him with his suprise present in it and i was in the bathroom so she ran to him and told him happy day daddy...two days before fathers day. geez thanks baby girl

WE did the waffle iron too this year. Thank heaven for good men and good fathers. Me and my kids are very blessed too.

That is adorable!! My kids always give away Daddy's presents, and he is relentless at getting them to tell him what we bought. Happy Fathers Day!!

Thats funny. I took my boys to a plaster place to paint presents for their dad. I told my 3 year old to not tell daddy. What does he do but say "Dada paint!" I recovered it by saying that no, he couldn't paint right now. He had been painting with watercolors the day before. Close call. Then I told my oldest that I was hiding the presents in the garage. I walk outside later to discover my husband about to go into the garage and my kids just sitting back and watching it. Another close call since I walked out there in time.

I love that they are both doing their scowl in the second pic.

That is too funny! What a smart boy, the way he carefully drops not-so-subtle hints...hey mom, he didn't tell. At least, not exactly!

My sister would get mad a someone, and then at dinner time she would volunteer to pray and proceed to pray for every dog, cat, missionary, friend and family member- except the person she was mad at...then she would announce, " I didn't pray for you!"

I love this post, Cheri! Awesome tribute to dad. ( I also love that he wanted a cotton candy machine-- that's not something many men would ask for :).
