Happy Father's Day!

Yesterday was Kurt's 2nd Father's Day. We had some fun, some tears and enjoyed some food as a family.

The sad part of the weekend was that Kurt's Mom had a heart attack on Wed. She's had her tests and they all came back normal --so they discharged her from the hospital on Sat. She's currently resting and will go back to the Dr. this week for evaluation.

We had a fun time on Sat and Sunday we went to Church for a Strawberry was fun, but hectic.

The photos above were part of Kurt's gift was that I created a family logo and had it put on 3 t-shirts. One for each of us. We wore them on Sunday and everyone loved them. The tagline of living life to the 9's is because each of us has a 9 in their birthday (4/29 for Kurt, 7/9 for Kelsey and 9/1 for me!) The back of the shirt has the Chinese characters for Joy because Kelsey has brought such joy to our lives.

The photos above were taken at Outback. Kelsey is pleased with herself because she's finagled my raspberry iced tea. Kurt and I were just plain tuckered out.

Open note to my dear husband...

Honey---I know sometimes your girls can be challenging to live with, but there's no one on this planet that really knows my heart and mind better than you do. You are an amazing Daddy to Kelsey and she is thriving in your loving attention. All this girl stuff can't be easy to live with (even our cats are girls) the shoes alone must kill you! You are also a great are supportive and a lot of fun to hang out with. You always find a way to make our dreams come true and you are steadfast in your belief that there is good in the world. I respect and admire you more than I can say.

I always tell Kelsey that I looked long and hard to find her the best Daddy in the world and we were lucky to find you!

Love always,
Your Girls!
