Happy Father's Day

I am SO proud to call Jake my husband and that he is the father to my children. I could not have asked for a better man. He is SO good to us, always here for us and unfailing source of support in our life. So this post is dedicated to him and my dad...another wonderful man.

Jake as a man, husband and father:

1. Has given me the 3 best days of my life.

2. He has given me a son who is loving, caring and a wondeful big brother.

3. He gave me adorable twin girls.
4. A follower, filled with affection, and always doing things to make her sister and brother happy.
5. An independent, firecracker, who loves to sing.
6. He lets the kids help him with chores, even if it takes him twice as long, because he knows that they just want to spend time with him and help out.

7. He's supportive and one of his kids' biggest cheerleaders (the other being me, of course).

8. He loves spending time with us.
9. He goofs around with the kids and plays with them even when he's exhausted.
10. He thinks he has the best life ever because he has us.

Now, here's a picture of my dad from when he was over for dinner last night.
A couple of my favorite things about my dad:
1. I have someone to call when Jake doesn't laugh at my jokes, because I know he ALWAYS will.
2. I grew up watching Westerns rather then Sci-Fi.
3. He happily takes Peder fishing.
4. He loves to spoil his grandkids and spend time with them.
5. He still talks about how cute my mom is, after 31 years of marriage.
6. He buys me sunflower seeds.
