Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Today we celebrated one of the most special people in our lives, daddy!
The cards the kids made for Daddy. Elsie's, Jackson's & Ansley's.
Jackson has this thing where he wants to sound out words
"all by myself," and no help from mommy. He's getting better! For
now I'm super proud of his "HPB BTDA ERC card! :)
We are so lucky to have such a dedicated, loving, hard working, Christian man in our lives to lead and guide our family everyday. The kids and I spent the morning making some cards, an oreo mud pie (daddy's favorite) and planning a special supper to help make his day special. Eric has to be at work at 5:30am and he gets off at 1:30 from that job, and then he usually stops by the house to grab some water and a snack before heading out to do some side jobs which he is gone to until 8ish or so. For some reason the kids decided it would be fun to fill some water balloons full of water to throw at daddy's truck when he stopped by before leaving again, but they were nice enough to not hit him directly with them! :) While we were outside playing with some sidewalk chalk, Jackson wanted to write daddy a Happy Birthday message:

When daddy finally made it home from working, we had a delicious supper & yummy oreo mud pie,

Check out Ansley's face... perfect! :)

We never have a problem with Elsie clearing her plate

and then we did our nightly bedtime routine and took a quick picture of the birthday boy and his three children that just adore him:

Happy Birthday, Eric! We are so blessed to have you in our lives... we love you!
