Father's Day/Paul's Birthday

Well, Paul was able to stretch this out over a few days. Saturday, we all had breakfast at Sonic (he missed it in Utah where we had one just a few blocks away). Then, on Sunday, Paul got the cards the kids made for him and this frame we all worked on. Abby actually helped out a lot with the sanding and photography! She is just growing up WAY too fast!Click HERE for the deets on how we did it. After church, we had my family over for dinner and dad opened his gifts. I love how my dad is still a kid at heart. Carrie shops for him and Abby at the same stores! Then we sang to Paul and ate my Banoffee Pie Cupcake Tarts where the whipped cream totally fizzled out and they looked horrible... but tasted okay. Note: Do not make banoffee pie cupcake tarts in the future! Then we played this Croquet/Football game in the back yard which was fun because we had an extra obstacle: two babies trying to steal and throw our balls around after we kicked them! It was a really nice day. Then, yesterday, we went and saw "The A-Team" which was, by the way, a really fun flick. That's it! I am so grateful for all the men and father's in my life that have helped and continue to help and guide and teach our family. We truly are blessed in this day and age that both of our families are still together. What great examples for our children!
