Father's Day

   
        
 

These are the reason's why we love our daddy:

Lydia:  I love Daddy because he does nice things for me and I love him because he is a great dad.  Daddy is special because he always is nice.  He helps me when I get hurt and he helps me study science and he helps me play the piano.  And I love him.  Love, Lydia.

Kate:  I love Daddy because he teaches me some words and he loves me and he loves glasses and Emma's dad loves to eat clothes.  Ewww.  He teaches me how to go potty and he teaches me how ride cars and he teaches me how to put earrings on.  Daddy is special because he teaches me how to put eyeballs on so we can see and get the white stuff out of our eye because in Anastasia, the evil took his eye out.  What's his name again?

Grant:  I love my Daddy because he holds me up on the air and with his fingers he tickles me until I can't laugh anymore.  I love my Daddy because he throws me up in the air until I'm scared silly but I still laugh to make him feel good.  I love my Daddy because he let me help him fix his old pickup in Grandpa's shop.  My Daddy is special because he is always willing to change my poopy diapers and hold me tightly on the airplane so that I can't move.  I love it when he looks in my ears with the otoscope, I try not to cry but sometimes my eyes leak a little bit.  I love my Daddy and hope to be just like him one day.

Kim:  I love Derrel because he is such an amazing father to our three amazing kids.  He is always willing to do the dirty jobs at home that I don't always have the patience for. He is so selfless and dedicated to our family and our home.  He is such a special man with so many talents.  He is so patient and willing and supportive of my aspirations and helps me to be a better person.  I love Derrel, always have and always will, forever.  Love you. 

Happy Father's Day!

Cute post, Kim! Happy Father's Day, Derrel! What cute kids you have. Loved the things they said. Miss you!

ha! Still cracking up over Kate's reasons. We got pretty lucky to get guys who are willing to do the dirty jobs didn't we??

Lynn, Sarah and Ayslin said...

Ha ha, Kate is at the exact stage as Ayslin, it's so funny. Ayslin is always interrupting herself and distracting herself and saying the finniest things.

That was the sweetest thing ever!! I loved reading that! Kate cracks me up so hard. I can totally hear her little voice saying all that. I'm sure Derrel felt a great amount of love from that post. Good job!

Yep, I enjoyed Kate's words as well.

It was nice to see your comment on my gloomy post. :)

Love the Anastasia reference. And as for Grant: I see he has a rather extensive vocabulary, not to mention a phenomenal grasp of grammar and a superlative command of syntax. When I last saw him, he must have simply chosen not to employ them.

What a great idea for Father's Day!

Yes, Spencer parents are moving...to Germany! They go in September - the church is putting him there to be over temples/storehouses/church buildings/etc. Crazy that they won't be on our continent anymore. And yes, that temple was so beautiful and very cool!

haha...I love how you capture your kids words exactly and make me feel as if I am hearing them talk. Kate is hilarious.

So, I found your blog and had every intention of blog-stalking you until I saw the pic of that old truck. I cannot believe you guys still have it!! Anywho, just dropping in to say Hi! (and happy late Father's day, Derrel!)
