Happy Fathers Day...
Today is Fathers Day and I so miss my dad. I miss being home as I don't get to see my dad often enough. Maybe for a week every 3-5 years. This photo was taken the last time I was back home visiting 3 years ago.
It's funny to look at my dad next to Noah (my son) whom in this photo was only 14 and he was already taller then him.. See that is one of many things my father and I have in common. We are both short although I am not quite 5' my dad is only 5'2 ... hehe We both need a step stool to reach the top of the fridge, the top shelf in the cupboard, A little boost to get into the truck. However we never had a problem seeing eye to eye. hehe We both love seafood, hot things, an ice cold peach soda. No one else in the house liked it but we loved it. hehe I remember him making Horchata, hot coco and orange tea for us in the winter time before school and when we got home from school to warm us up. I loved his hot rice cereal in the morning as well (kind of like oatmeal but with rice.) yum The best was listening to him tell stories of his childhood. They were always a great laugh and I find my self telling my kids these stories. hehe Dad I love you and miss you and look forward to seeing you this Christmas if everything works out.
Today my children got to tell this amazing man Happy Fathers Day. He is my hubby, my best friend, the father of my children and my soul mate.
This morning the boys came in early in the morning whispering to each other whom is gonna wake him up first or how they should wake him up etc. As hubby lays there pretending to be asleep with a little grin on his face. They jumped into bed with lots of snuggles and tickles. lol I love listening to all of them laugh. There were gifts given and lots of talk about summer. New bed times are officially in place. New chores and so much more. Plus hubby got some great coupons from the kids which I know he will be using. lol
