Tuesday, June 17, 2008
Eric and I decided that we'd give each other a joint present for my birthday and father's day. And we decided on a flat screen TV . You see, the TV we had was, I think, a good 10-15 years old, or possibly more. And I don't want to have to buy one of those converter boxes in 2009 when we all have to have certain TVs. Anyway, here it is, I promised the fam I'd put a picture on my blog.
And also I wanted to tell Eric thank you so much, and Happy Father's day. Babe, thanks for everything you do, for being so patient with me, and working so hard all the time. And being the best dad to our kids. You always seem to fill in where I can't, and I really appreciate it. You're my rock, and the foundation of our little family, thanks for keeping us together. I love you honey, Happy Father's Day from the kids and I.

Now, I know you're all thinking that you have the best dad ever, but I'm sorry to say that No One has a better dad than I do. Seriously, some may come close but none are better- well, to me anyway! Now as we all know, tomorrow is June 15th, Father's Day, but you see, June 15th is also my birthday. Yes, it's true! Every, I don't know how many years-dad, I'm sure you'd know- Father's Day falls on my birthday. I always thought that I was so special, having my dad open presents on the same day as me, just the two of us. And this year will be the first that we won't be together to celebrate. So, dad here's some good memories....
For laughs- I remember, when you used to have hair, Steph and I used to comb/brush your hair, and put bows and clips in it, funny enough, I think mom took a picture of it once.
Dad, you always were the one we'd, I'd, go to if I knew mom would say "NO", but you usually would say, "go ask your mother".
I think I have only 2 memories of you getting mad at me, one was when I broke the chair, I was sitting on it wrong, and you told me not to lean back on it, and sure enough I broke it. And man, when I fell, I just remember running to my room before you could catch me! The other time I believe was during Junior High, I told you and mom that I had, I think, a 3-4 page report due in the morning-yes, I'm a great procrastinator. And we all stayed up all stayed up late, late, late, till it was finished.
And then my favorites was, is, when you would sing my song, the primary song-" if you chance to meet a frown" Just the first word, "If..." would force a smile on my face.
Dad, thanks for always being there for me, to make me laugh, and put me in my place. Thank you for being my dad, so patient and understanding. I love you dad, happy father's day!

First of all a big shout out to my lil' sis Kelsie! Thanks so much Kels for intorducing me to this book. I had no idea that I would love it as much as you said I would. I mean come on, a girl who falls in love with a vampire and a werewolf, it really doesn't sound like my type of book, kinda silly really. I never have been much of a reader till lately, I guess you could say I'm a convert to the reading society. But within the first few pages of the first book I was hooked. I fell in love with Bella, and then Edward, and the Cullens, and then eventually even Jacob. I'm proud to say I've finished all three books in about a little over a months time. And I can't wait for the fourth one. And of course the movie, hello! If you haven't seen the teaser trailer, oh my goodness, it looks so good. They did a good job casting the characters, they all look how I had pictured them. Make sure you check it out. And if you haven't read the books you are missing out! Thanks again Kelsie. I can't wait to read them again!
