Happy Father's Day!

So,  most of you may be surprised to hear that I'm really not that good at planning parties, starting traditions and doing all those fun extras for all the little holidays. Don't get me wrong. I love having friends over, I love decorating. But I'm not very motivated to to either for a 'special' occasion. I can rise to the occasion, but I prefer not to. It may be because I'm a procrastinator. I generally know about birthday parties, holidays, and weddings in advance... but most often I'll be getting the present the day of, on the way... or arrive and think, 'SHOOT!! I forgot a card!!' But.... this Father's Day was different. For some odd reason I planned ahead. Bought and made presents, taught Ella how to write 'dad' for the card and planned a special meal. All that to say. We had a wonderful day and I thought I'd share some of it with you. It probably wont be like that next year. :)


'Mad Libs' card from Ella

Fun little 'I love you to pieces' craft


I made this with Ella's hand print. Copies of ones from when Nate died, and left a spot for this new little baby's feet prints


Yes!! He 'feels like a real dad getting tools!'

kisses all around



Books from my mom

 Now Ella takes a few pictures





After presents, lunch, ice cream, playing, resting, hanging shelves (with the new drill), Sweet Potato Burgers for dinner. YUM!
