Happy Father's Day...

Just want to wish all you fathers out there a Happy Father's Day. Of course, I need to pay tribute to my own father....so Dad, Happy Father's Day to you. I love you so much. Thanks for all you do for me and my kids. Your constant upbeat attitude and energy touch everyone you come in contact with. I don't think you've ever met a stranger, and you are one of the most interesting people I know. Thanks for always being there! And Coy, I couldn't have asked for a better father-in-law. Thanks for being you and always being there for our family. I miss our ice-cream sessions....and can't eat a cinnamon roll without thinking of you. As for my own grandfathers, this is my first year without both of them :(

Kendall is not only blessed with amazingly loving grandfathers, but a wonderful Daddy too. Justin takes everything in stride. He has the most laid back attitude and completely grounds me. He is so big, when he hugs me, I barely come to his chest, so when he holds Kendall it is so precious. His big arms wrap around her and soothe her when nobody else can. It's no surprise Kendall is a Daddy's girl. As soon as he walks through the door I swear she looks for him, then greets him with an ear to ear smile! I would say Jussy holds Kendall at least 3 hours a day! He's always talking sweetly to her and is so patient when she's eating...probably why she eats best for him!

Poor Justin is super sick tonight. We got up and ran 6 miles this morning around 6:30am with the baby jogger. Then he came home to mow the lawn. He swears he drank enough Gatorade, but he's had a very, very, very upset tummy tonight. He can't keep anything down. He's suppose to go out of town tomorrow on business for a Monday morning meeting, but I have a hunch we will be in the Emergency Room before the night's over. My dad just went to the store and brought him some more medicine...so hopefully it will do the trick. He's running a 102 fever. I thought it could be the Swine Flu, but he says not....

Anyhow, our house is almost completed, I finished a crappy week of work and (no thanks to my boss) my company is going to allow me to take 4 days off for Kendall's hospital stay without dipping into my vacation. I will be taking FMLA in the near future still though. Thank God people in our HR department have hearts. I hope you all have a great weekend and Father's Day.

What a sweet post!! Uncle Coy is pretty great, if I do say so myself!! When he laughs, it reminds me of when Daddy laughed when he was really tickled. It's like music to my ears!!! I hope Jussy gets to feeling better, that stinks that he is sick. Give your babies big hugs from me.

And......I promise I won't come kidnap you guys while Justin is away, HA!!!!

Jessica,
oh...yeah....when he laughs it is the best. His sheepish grin and the way he looks at you out of the top of his eyes is priceless too! I wish I could have known your daddy. He sounds like an amazing man. Thinking of you, your mom, and your sis on this Father's Day too...
