Bits of Splendor Monday

We had a really good day celebrating our daddy. 
He really is the best. Spoils us all.

I always say I could never truly have known what to look for in the perfect husband and father, if it weren't for my own. He set the bar pretty high, and when Brandon came along, I just knew I had found the one. I am so thankful to call him mine and ours.

Asher made him something special while he was gone with my sister last week. A print with words of all the things that remind him of Dad.

Gatorade, Funny, Pastor, Golf, Spurs, Heart of Praise {the name of our church} and "best dad."
It was super special. Asher was so proud of it and B got a little choked up reading it.

We celebrated with a day of church, lunch, an ice cream party and some pool time.

I attempted to snap just one good picture at the end of the day. Literally walking in the front door tonight. It was with my iphone, they were blurry. Not one of them came out perfectly but I decided I was ok with it. I mean this is "us" right now. I would have loved to snap a perfect picture with them all smiling big, but it just didn't happen. Part of letting go of perfect, right?

This one was my favorite. It was about the 12th picture and Mia was not having it. So I yelled "Cookie!" to get her attention. This is her signing for "more" {aka give me a cookie NOW} and looking very confused as to why there were no actual cookies in sight.
 It Doesn't she look like she's saying "quit playin and put a cookie in my hand, now."

The kids are all tucked in now and B and I have a pizza on the way, cookies in the oven and a movie on demand. That's right, mom and dad know how to party.

How was your Fathers Day?

I want to start trying something different for these Monday posts. I'd like to feature YOU. So each week I'm going to pick one post from those linked up and feature it the following week. 

What are some other ways you'd like to see relationships cultivated and others encouraged through this blog? If you have ideas, I'd love to hear them!

  8. It was a great day and I have the best family in the world!

  9. I'm a circle with hands pointing to a twelve
    and a six; their position changes with minutely
    icks - clock's face. When you continue going right, jump over the electric jellyfish, and jump into
    the blast barrel. Other retro titles haven't done so well on WP7,
    so how does this high-speed power boat racing game fare.
