Daddy

Be Proud

Posted in Jason by

Boys,

Today you are 2 1/2 years old and you share this day with your daddy’s birthday.  So on this day I want to tell you a little about the man you were BLESSED with as a father.

You should always be proud of your daddy!  He is such a man of character and faith that you should try to follow his example.

He is incredibly intelligent.  If you ever have trouble learning something or trying to figure something out, go to your dad.  He has built a deck, finished a basement, built a car from scratch and even built a fence all by teaching himself.  He is always learning new things and can retain knowledge like no other!

He is the most compassionate, honest, loyal person I know.  He has a strong faith that inspires me to stay on the path to Christ.  He has a sensitive heart to those in need and he taught me the true meaning in tithing.  He doesn’t lie and if someone needs his help, he is there.  The best part is he NEVER asks for anything in return.  He will help a friend move, fix his grandparents’ computer, help his sister set up a website, you name it…he helps others all the time.

Your daddy followed his dream, even when it was a tough road, he did it.  He didn’t decide to become a chiropractor until later in his 20’s but he said to me it was and always will be his PASSION.  HE LOVES WHAT HE DOES.  He gets so excited helping people feel better.  This characteristic has inspired me to do things I never even considered before meeting him.  Let his example be a valuable lesson in life.  Don’t ever hesitate to do what you LOVE.

And your daddy LOVES LOVES LOVES you boys!  He is the daddy getting on the floor wrestling, building forts, teaching you to ride bikes, teaching you to catch a ball or throw a ball and he is the daddy who snuggles with you and kisses your boo boos.  He is the daddy ALL kids should have.

Your dad is a wonderful example of how to treat your future wife.  Your daddy constantly shows me how much he loves me and tells me I’m beautiful all the time, even when I have no make-up on and in gym clothes.  He remembers to surprise me with little things…like a last minute dinner date, a homemade gift from you boys, little things that add up.

I pray every day you get these values from your daddy as you grown into men.

We LOVE you daddy!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Until next post…

Today my loves…

Posted in Today by

Today marks 9 years I have been married to your daddy.  Nine years of marriage that have flown by too fast!

Daddy and I met the very first day I arrived at Oklahoma State University in August 1999…wow I feel old typing that!  We didn’t technically start dating until that October but I knew the night I met him, he was someone special.  We never exchanged numbers or anything but happened to run into each other at a party that October night.  I saw your dad across the group of people and we made eye contact.  A few minutes later he walked up to me and told me I was beautiful.  We spent the entire evening talking and laughing.  We went with some friends to Wal-mart (I know, romantic right?) and we played in the toy aisle forever!  I still have my Star Wars toy we bought that night.  We went to Whataburger and ate with friends and then watched the sun come up at the lake.  As our friends dropped me off I didn’t know if I would see him again.  I knew we were meant to be together so on my way to class that morning I left a note on his Jeep.  And the rest is history!

We were young and in love but we also spent a lot of time talking about things….politics, religion, family, kids, careers, etc.  We had SO much fun together!  Your daddy was not only my boyfriend at the time but he became my best friend.  I met your dad shortly after my mom passed away and he was such a gift from God and I believe put in my life at that time for a reason.  He truly helped me grieve my mother’s death and was such a pillar of strength for me.  For the first time in a long time I felt I had someone protecting me.

Over the past 12.5 years we have endured a lot of sad times as well as happy times.  We have experienced deaths….some so sudden the shock still stings and some not so sudden yet equally painful.  We have suffered a miscarriage as well as the trials of infertility.  We have celebrated mommy’s graduation from Oklahoma State University and Daddy’s graduation from Cleveland Chiropractic College.  Most importantly, we were abundantly blessed with your arrival.  We prayed for years for a baby and we got such an amazing double blessing.

Through all the ups and downs your daddy has been my strength and my comfort.  He loves me unconditionally.  He tells me I’m beautiful, stunning, awesome, incredible all the time.  He is truly the best Daddy!  You boys adore your daddy and rightfully so.  He is always bragging about you and telling everyone what new things you are learning and funny things you might be doing at the time.  He wrestles, takes you on your balance bikes, tickles you, teaches you new things and most of all he loves you with every ounce of his heart.  When I met your daddy I knew he would be the best father to our children!  I was right.

As I look back on 9 years of marriage I think about how I felt when I married your dad and how I thought I couldn’t love him more but I honestly fall more in love with him with each day that comes.  I pray for you boys to one day feel this way about your wives.  I pray you love unconditionally.  I pray you find yourself in relationships that allow you to be yourself, that allow you to grow and evolve, that make you enjoy life and that you find someone you fall deeper in love with over the days and years that pass.  I hope you look to your daddy on how to be a husband and father.  He is the best role model around!

So today my loves know that I love your daddy with all my heart.

Until next post…

Pumpkins and More

Posted in Holidays by

It’s October and that means I take HUNDREDS of photos.
Friday we went to celebrate GREAT Grandma’s birthday with a trip to a beautiful place with a small petting zoo, wonderful little gift shop (I scored some homemade apple butter!) and lots of pumpkins with a maze and fun games for kiddos.

Kiki checking out the goats with the boys.

Pretty sure Sutton wanted to take this donkey home as a pet.

And the horse

This boy is a total Kiki’s boy!

Cousins!

A corn maze is perfect for this little Houdini…kid LOVES to hide.

Fynn seemed to be having fun.

Perfect size for these boys.

Nope, I think Sutton found the one he wants.

This is the best picture we can get with two toddler and only two parents.

And of course they have to help Daddy!

Last year was fun but this year was better.  The only thing about last year is they weren’t walking so I could take better pictures.
Maybe not better pictures but they would sit still.
The boys last year…

I LOVE MY BOYS!  They are so fun and I’m so BLESSED to be their mama!

Until next post…
