Father's Day Feeling
Jeff is now hooked on the joy of a day just being for you. In recent years I have fallen in love with Mother's day being a day for just me and tried to spoil Jeff with a day just for him. I think it worked.
on "our" day, you get to sleep in, don't have to cook or clean any dishes, you have the ultimate pass from anything you don't want to do and get to say "it's my day" (this applies usually to Sacrament meeting at church and are void from any responsibility with rowdy kids) you don't have to change diapers, get to pick what you want for dinner and just do what you want to do.
We at yummy monkey bread, omelets full of yummy onions, green peppers, green chilies, cherry tomatoes, avocado, a roast (cooked per Jill's husband and it was the best ever) riced potatoes and yummy gravy.
We gave Jeff his own orange hat that has been lost for a long time all wrapped up and a grapefruit cutter along with some grapefruit spoons (he is the ultimate fruit surgeon)
I always think he is dad of the year for wearing the decorated tie the girls make for him. He never likes to draw attention to himself so it is huge for him to wear this every year and never complain about it.
This year he got lots of sparklies & sequins. Some shrinky dinks and a rubber frog safety pinned on the bottom
It seemed like a perfect day to take a photo of the girls standing in front of the Church (this is a great thing to do a few times a year to watch your kids grow up over the years). Sally Jane is in such a Kung Fu Panda mode she can not take a photo without doing one of her moves.
I just love the beehive on top of the sign so AK got to get hers with the concrete beehive.
The Great Thing that happened today was AK finding her favorite thing that she owns. It is a little photo charm of Jeff when he was 5. Her Grammy gave it to her before Kindergarten. She has worn it on the first day of school every year except this year. It has been lost for almost a year and she has been so sad about it.
When we woke up this morning one of the frogs from her frog tank was missing. We looked everywhere and finally gave up thinking he must have died as he is always in the water. In the afternoon we found him downstairs covered in dust (guess who does not clean her floors) and he survived the hours out of the water. But in our looking she found her photo charm and was just thrilled and she said "of course it is on Father's Day!"
Also I am putting out a white dress alert. The girls dresses are on super sale right now at the Gap. Caroline's was only $14.99 in the store only up to a size 5(for some reason it was more online) Sally Jane's was $12.99. The GAP will do a price adjustment if you buy it online and it is cheaper in the store. AK's was full price but also at the Gap right now and a great white dress for a girl growing out of smocking (rats!) They are great eyelet dresses if you need some for a wedding or beach photos or really anytime!
Did you make a Father's Day tie?
Did he wear it?
