We had a huge sheet of poster board (left over from garage sale signs), some crayons, a sharpie and 20 minutes. This is what we came up with:
|I feel that it should be noted (because I'm type-A sometimes) that Natalie's hair is wet from a bath, not greasy. Okay, now that we're clear we can move things right along... Proceed.|
On the very top I wrote out the verses (Psalm 127: 3-4): "Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb, a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!"
This is what the kids wrote (what they love about their Daddy):
Natalie: He kills meat that tastes really good!
Carter: He wrestles with me.
Jack: He always has gum and he always shares.
Natalie: Sometimes he brushes my hair and it never hurts when he does it.
Carter: He takes us camping and I LOVE camping!
Jack: He takes us hunting in the mountains!
Natalie: He always makes sure we're safe. It's really good to be safe.
Carter: He always reads to us in special voices, like the "huffs and puffs and blow your house down" book! That's the BEST!
Natalie: He prays with us a lot and that's really good.
Carter: He likes the Ducks more than the Beavers! JUST KIDDING! Bwahahaha!
Jack: He loves it when I wrestle him, but he traps me sometimes, and it's HARD to do trapping!
Carter: Daddy is a good Dad because he has really good kids... That's us. We're his kids - and we're good.
When he gets home we'll give him his card and gifts. The kids and I went and picked out a pair of Keen sandals (now I just need a pair!) for him, and Carter has a few gifts he made for him before school was out.
I They can hardly wait for him to get home from work! It's adorable.
