Father's Day

On Saturday M to the Izz-A's mom and granny came over to visit. This was Granny Mac's first meeting with Hamp. There was no shortage of hugging and cheek pinchin' that's for sure. Kate and Hamp both enjoyed being center of attention for the afternoon.





Matt's mom made us a delicious lunch, which we devoured in no time flat. Good ol' Mary came prepared with all the groceries she needed to make the meal and just made herself at home in the kitchen. Boy were we thankful. She sure knows the way to our hearts.
Through our bellies, of course.
All that sugar stealin' wore Hamp out...



And for Father's Day I invited my parents and grandma over for dinner.





I love this fella...

He inspires me in ways he doesn't even realize. From childhood to adulthood, he's always been one of my heroes, showing me right from wrong, teaching me not just through words but through his actions.
Thank you, Daddy, for being the man you are and always have been. I love you so much.








I just love how completely kicked back and relaxed Hamp looks in this picture. But more than that, I love how my grandma is well into her 80's and still paints her fingernails bright red.











For Father's Day Kate worked extra hard on her present for Daddy.









We're pretty fond of M to the Izz-A around here. He's got his own fan club. Talk about an amazing daddy - I couldn't have asked for a better father for my children.
Heck, he's not even scared to do a little role reversal 'er now and then -- cooking, cleaning, and diaper duty...








...even if he does have his own special technique.

知道他有了外遇
面對他的低聲下氣妳冷嘲熱諷、無理取鬧
妳瘋狂似的大吵大鬧
甚至到他的公司去亂、向他的親友抱怨、向鄰居們哭訴…
妳把他的外遇鬧的人盡皆知
最後,妳把他的愧疚消耗殆盡…
最後,妳把他想要回頭的念頭打消…
最後,妳自己把他推向外遇的第三者身邊…

That totally takes me back to some great daddy diaper techniques... I can remember one time when Kip put the diaper cream in his hands like it was lotion...lathered it up...then....

:)

Hope you are doing well!! Your sweet baby boy is precious - congrats!
