Father of the Year!!

Dearest Eric,
Did you ever dream your life would be so full of LIFE!!! You have four kiddos that absolutely adore you and want to be just like you!!! Thank you for daily leading our family to Christ.  Thank you for being such a partner in this parenting thing! Thank you for all you do for me and our babies when they cry all night....no way could I make it with out you!!  Here are a couple notes to remind you of all you are to us!!

From Nathan:
Daddy, you are the best Wrestler and the best daddy in all the world. I hope I can be a very good preacher like you when I grow up. I like you playing the guitar and like playing the drums with you! I like when you play dragon with me and the other boys in the cul-de-sac.
I love you all the way to a million!

From Naomi:
Daddy, your the best singer and Daddy your the best mandolin and guitar player.  I like it when you snuggle me and do puzzles with me.
I love you a thousand times to Africa,
Naomi

oh funny jude!












Oh this kid adds so much flavor to all of our lives!!!  He is in the cute, yet dangerous age 2 stage.  He has been super physical and not verbal at all...until now. It is precious to try to decipher is vocabulary!  I kinda don't correct him so that he will say "lellow" instead of yellow or "woof woof" for doggy, "mo bach bach" for more chicken at supper...as long as he will! One of the cutest is when he is ready for bed he wants his..."woof woof & bank bank"....his doggy & blanket. He is a hoot and tries things i would never dream of. He does not meet a stranger and loves making friends with random people on the playground.  He is 2 1/2 and i am no where near ready to move him out of him crib or potty train him! He could walk around with a dirty diaper forever....and would never complain. He is all boy...loves dirt and puddles,runs everywhere, falls often without crying and thankfully sleeps hard!! We love that kid!
