Father's Day Gifts

Well I'm a little late on posting these. We had a pretty good day. It was sorta stressful but it always is for me and Paul to. His Father passed away when he was 12 so I know it is tough. He watched NASCAR and tried to catch up on sleep. I took the girls for a walk and we ended up being gone longer than I planned but Hey at least he got to watch the race and play on computer w/out all the noise.

I came home and fixed Chicken Breasts , Baked Potatoes, Corn on the Cob so he was happy for that.

The kids before school was out made gifts for Dad. I don't really remember making something for my Dad. I know we did for Mom. Anyway I thought I would share what they made.

Jennifer made a paper weight. A few weeks ago for her homework they had to go find a rock. Dad took her and I knew what it was for. I thought it was so sweet he helped her pick out his Father's Day Present and he didn't even know it.

Ridge made a Father's Day Card but it is so special. His teacher always has such good ideas. I just love it and she took the time to take there pics for everyone in the class.

Marie wrote this , it was on a paper to big to scan so I retyped it.

" I Am Marie "

I am funny and smart.
I wonder if I will be a teacher someday.
I want my own room.
I am funny and smart.
I pretend I'm a dog.
I worry keeping my family safe.
I cry when I get hurt.
I am funny and smart.
I understand math and spelling.
I say I love God.
I dream of meeting my Mom's friend Holly.
I try to be a better reader.
I hope no one would fight.
I am funny and smart.

I thought she did very good and Dad liked it too.

Also I was going to make a Father's Day cake but while grocery shopping Saturday , Jennifer found a huge cookie decorated for Father's Day at Wal*Mart. So I said it was ok since they bought me a cake from there. Anyway it was good and Dad liked it.

All in all it was a nice Father's Day and the gifts were wonderful because they were all handmade.

loved Ridge's card and picture! you are right; his teacher had great ideas!! Marie's poem was cute too and loved Jennifer's rock.I think a lot of times gifts weren't made for dads because school was out already.

sounds like Paul had a good day and a delicous dinner and dessert!
