Birthday Carnival for #5!

Well, she went and turned five on us... hard to believe, but true. We had a wonderful time at our birthday Carnival!!! We went a little over board.. but it's a BIG one! I don't think anyone had a better time than the kids though.... lots to do, lots to play with, lots of sugar, add in a clown named "Frizzle", what's not to love?
Happy Birthday Belly B,
I love you!

my baby...

A mismatch scrap book view of Bella baby faces taken over the past 5 years... What a happy 5 years it's been. Can't believe Friday will mark 5 years since she came into the world! It seems like yesterday!

The Best Daddy in the world...

There's something like
a line of gold thread
running through a man's words
when he talks to his daughter,
and gradually over the years
it gets to be long enough for you to
pick up in your hands and weave
into a cloth that feels like love itself.
~John Gregory Brown, Decorations in a Ruined Cemetery, 1994
What kind of Dad spends his father's day weekend putting up swing sets and doing yard work to get ready for little ones birthday? A selfless one. One that cares more about hearing the laughter and joy of his children than his own. Honey, you are the best father to our children that I could ever dream for. You are hands on, loving, fun, and always there when they need you. We love you more than you could ever know! Even though you spent your weekend building, hauling dirt and bark, weeding, pruning, and all of those other things that make it called... yard "work", I really hope you know that today and everyday we appreciate you, and are so thankful that you are ours! Happy Father's Day.

my dad

There are people in our lives that weigh more heavily on you than others. Their opinions are somehow more important, you listen and tend to remember their words as you walk through life. My dad is one of those people to me. He is the first man that taught me how every other should treat me. He showed me what respect is. He has always made me feel special, loved, and important. Throughout my life I never remember a time he wouldn't do anything he could for my happiness. Whether it was taking me for a "special date" or coming to eat school lunch when I was a little girl, or helping me remodel my house as I'm a grown up. There are very few people ever so selfless, that they give to you without ever looking back. But, he is one of those people. He was there when I learned how to walk, there when I learned how to ride a bike, there when I learned how to drive a car, there as I gave another man my heart, there when I gave birth to my babies, and continues to be there as an important and critical part of my life. I feel thankful each and every day that I have been so lucky to have had so much love in my life. My dad has taught me what true love is. I am also so thankful for the love that he gives my girls. There is nothing so important in a young girls life than strong relationships with the male role models in their lives. My girls are lucky enough to have two! As we are almost at Fathers Day, I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to my dad... You go above and beyond the duties of Dad and Papa. You always do things for all of us with love, and for that and every other thing you've ever done or taught me I thank you, and love you for it, from the bottom of my heart! Happy Father's Day Dad... XOXO
