Father's Day

To all the daddies, I hope you guys had a wonderful day!

Now, we're not big on celebrating Father's Day in this house. We don't go all out or make a big deal about it, generally speaking. But it is the ONE day (besides his birthday) that Hubby gets all to himself, to celebrate him. And he is a great dad, so why not make him feel special on his day?

We stayed in all day (minus a quick trip to the grocery store). I made him breakfast in bed (soup, since he was feeling a little under the weather). He was able to just lay in bed most of the day and watch TV. Kids bestowed their gifts upon him one by one.

Boobie got him a key holder that says 'I love Papi' (I'll hang it in the office and hang spare keys on it) and a card he made. The card was so cute, with a drawing of him on his dad's shoulders and a nice note saying how great a dad his dad is.

Princess also made a card with a drawing of her and her dad. Her pre-school also took a picture of her dressed in men's pants, shoes, shirt and tie. It is the cutest picture ever. Her pose, the smile on her face, the oversized clothing... priceless.

Fatty's playgroup class made cards with a nice peom about dad with Fatty's hand print inside. Simple gifts but worth so much because of the personalized touches.

The day ended on a high note as well, even after the kids had gone to bed, with Hubby and me snuggled in bed, watching a movie. When I asked him how his day was, if he felt special, his response was: "you make me feel like this all the time"! *awwwwwwwwwwww*
