Happy Birthday Dad (Pappy)

Last weekend the Kids and I were able to help my

father celebrate his 66th birthday.

Something that normally

does not happen since we live so

far away from each other.

Ever since the passing of my mother,

the opportunity for us to spend

time with my father does not come very often.

So you can imagine how

wonderful it feels when my father is able to visit us .

We surprised him with an ice cream cake on Sunday

and Jonah was able to take him to the

Catfish House for his birthday

My sister would totally disagree,
but I am a "daddy's girl."

I am so happy for you that you got to spend the day with your dad on his b-day and got to visit with him for a couple of days.

Love the pictures! Your dad looks great. I sure miss him. I think about him ALL the time. My kitchen trash can is one of my most valuable possessions, and I'm so grateful he made it for me. What a special man! Next time you see him, give him a hug from me!

Dads are very special! What a treat for both him and you to be able to spend his birthday together! And BTW - there is nothing wrong with being a "Daddy's Girl" - I too am one and I am PROUD of it! :-)
