Happy Father's Day


Happy Father's Day to my dearest Joseph...

You make me laugh.

I love your cooking-especially your grilling meat skills, crepes and delish high fat breakfasts.

I think you are so handsome and aren't we glad you still
have all your hair?

Thank you for being the spiritual leader in our home and initiating family prayer, family council, PPI's with the kids, comp prayer with me, and scripture study.

Thanks for sharing your King Size Snickers bar during Sunday School yesterday...it was tasty.

I love that you ground me. I am a type A personality and have trouble slowing down sometimes. You are my calming respite.

I love all the hard work you do to maintain our yard, home improvement projects and the PIG PEN. Admit it, hon, you feel totally like Charles Ingalls when you work on that little composting project.

I genuinely believe this man is the most well rounded man I know. He has sophisticated tastes. He loves going to symphony concerts with me; he builds furniture, replaces toilets, reads "Treasure Island" with Josh, conducts Priesthood meetings and makes EQ visits on Sundays, fishes, takes us camping, and begs me to perform a Beethoven Sonata late at night after the chitlins go to bed...How many men work a 9-hour day and come home with energy to help wash dishes, grill meat for dinner, wrestle kids, and conduct an evening scripture devotional before bed?

Dosef, I love you. Happy Father's Day.
p.s. Sorry I didn't have the energy to bake you a spice cake with penuche frosting. Raincheck?
