Happy Fathers Day

I don't know if I have told you this, but this man is my life.  He loves his girls and they adore him.
They took us to the park today with a delicious picnic they put together to celebrate Fathers Day. Mr. serious pants doesn't like to have his picture taken though.
It is sometimes all he can do to hold it together and not smile, but with his iron will he forces his face into submission. No smile here.
But wait...what is this? Is the iron will crumbling? Can he hold it together or will his girls coax a little smile from their stoic and serious dad?
Ahh yes. There is the sweet smile we all love.  The iron will crumbles:>) We love you to the moon and back sweetheart!  My own father was not around, I had a stepdad who was, at best, abusive, so the love that my sweet man shows his girls (and me), is priceless. It means the world to me and to them. I sometimes think that God gave me Earl to show me what real love looks like.  It looks like this.
I thank God for this man every. single. day.


  1. Oh Kathy, that is so sweet! What a wonderful tribute! Hope he has a very happy day. :)

  2. Great pictures! Good thing Earl is wearing shades, case he ever has to go underground...

    Tell him Happy Father's Day from his baby sis, ok?

  3. Awww, such a great post!
    Hold tight cause what you have is priceless and not all of us have been so lucky.
    I admire you both...ALL!
    Sweet little gals too :)

  4. Well, I think he's kinda cute also, but my Love Bunny has him beat in the cuteness department, honey! LOL ;-)

  5. What a cute post! And something tells me he thanks God every day for his sweet wife, too!

  6. What a cute post.....I love the way your children bring out the best in their dad! I'm so happy you have seen the blessing of fatherhood in your life afterall. Those of us who are so fortunate can not take that lightly. Happy Father's Day to your hubby...
    Take Care, Dee

  7. Daddy's girls can usually get what they want from their daddy. Looks like your girls can too. Sounds like we had the same upbringing. Absent dad, not such a great stepfather. We got lucky finding a great man to be the father of our children. I thank the Lord every single day for that blessing. Mimi

  8. Don't cha just love it when we get soooo lucky in the love deptartment!! He looks like he has a teasing side to him..
    I love your new have been so busy!
    Have fun this week..Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

  9. Kathy, I just adore this post. It's such a blessing to see you lift up your husband. What a treasure to have a GOOD man in your life like that. And these photos made me smile!! :)

  10. Your post has melted my heart. What a blessing to be on the other side of your camera with those images in your view! Love it! :o) We have similar upbringings, minus the step dad -but throw in a mom who committed suicide when I was almost 4.
    I am so blessed to have the man I do, in my life. I married my best friend! :o)
    Happy Monday!
    Sincerely ~ Tricia

  17. Love this! I have a very serious husband as well and we love to catch him off guard and make him laugh and smile! Have a wonderful day!

  18. Hi Kathy,
    Somehow we lost track of each other, well probably because I've had too many blog changes...LOL! Anyway, your man has that celebrity look going there for him...he looks like he's famous!

    Hope you are doing well and I can get caught up on what's been going on in your neck of the woods. I had no idea you lived in Michigan. I live in Ohio...where abouts in Michigan?

    P.S. I hope you stop by as I always looked forward to your visits.

  19. And he's quite handsome to boot! Lucky girl!
