I had grand ideas of the girls coloring cards for Fathers Day for my husband and I was looking for a cake decorating class to sign him up for that he has been asking for. Well the cards never for made and he went and signed up for the class himself. He is getting a little something that I know will make him happy.

Babe, you are an Awesome Aba! Our girls love you, so much. So much that they can bear to be in a different room than you if you are home. So much, that they yell and scream your name before falling asleep at night, and first thing when they wake up in the morning. They love their Aba so much that they call me Ama because you are always on their mind. They love pointing out your shoes/shirts/phone/etc around the house and saying Aba, Aba when they spot it. Thank you for all you do for our family. You work so hard to make us all happy, enjoy your day my love.

And a special Happy Father’s Day to the girls Saba and to all the Dads and Dads to be.

I totally drop the ball on Father’s Day this year, there are no clever gifts, no sentimental hand made cards. I’m a little embarrassed to admit I didn’t even send a card this year. But I have this blog, and I know you read it everyday Dad. So here’s your bee special Dad Father’s Day card.

You taught me how to ride a bike, plant a seed, organize a closet. You taught me how to make French toast, pop popcorn the old fashioned way and how to buy furniture. Everyday I use the lessons I learned from you, everyday I appreciate you more and more. I love you Dad, Happy Father’s Day to the Beat Dad and Grandaddy in the world.
Love,
Julie

That was a Happy Day

I’m talking about this past Sunday. For many men is was Father’s Day! A day filled with greeting cards, cakes and gifts in the shape of a tie, gifts of golf/fishing/hunting/home improvement equipment and of course lots of hugs from the little people in their lives and the people that were once little and always will be in the eyes of their DAD.  My Dad was many hundred miles away in North Carolina so we didn’t get to hang out but my two older sisters and I sent him some fun little things, one of which he still hasn’t received, Grrr. (I love Etsy but when the sellers don’t stay true to their word it gives the whole community a bad name!) He did get to hang out with my middle sister and it sounds like he had a good day. We get to hang out next weekend for the fourth, yeah! I know my Dad is proud of his family and I’m grateful to be a part of it. Love you Dad.

Around these parts we celebrated very differently.  Even though my husband isn’t quite an Abba yet he spent the day doing the most fatherly thing a man can do, building a house for his soon to be arriving little girls and us. It’s coming along great, updated pics on Monday I promise.  I had been able to feel the girls moving around for several days and I was determined to have him feel them too, so we sat on the couch and waited paitently for a and b to start playing and sure enough they did and he could feel it! The look on his face was priceless, I know he is getting excited to meet them.


John from one of my favorite blogs said about fathers day “I learned from my own dad to think of celebrating these holidays not with things, but by doing things… together” I think this is a great was to celebrate everyday, not just fathers day. I hope that our family takes the time in the future to do things rather than get things( as much).
