Happy Father’s Day

I am the luckiest girl in the world. I have two great men in my life, my husband Alex and my father Dean.

My husband and father to my children…

Alex gets up before the sun is even shining to get ready for work and comes home in the evening. He works so hard for our family, that I am able to stay home with our daughters; for this I am eternally greatful. He is truly my best friend and I enjoy spending every minute with him. He has such a great sense of humor, and keeps me laughing. Our daughters adore him. As soon as we hear the garage door open Sasha is running around saying “Daddy home!” When he walks through that door both girls have giant smiles on their faces, they are so excited to see him. Alex is such an awesome father, and I am glad we are on this parenting adventure together. Not only is Alex such a great father, but he is such a kind, caring, unselfish, loving husband. He treats me like a queen and makes me feel so beautiful and loved everyday. I love you so much Alex, and wish you the Happiest Father’s Day!

Here is when Alex became a father for the first time, with Sasha.

Alex is usually the guy behind the lens, so this photo is a little old. Look how Sasha is so happy to be in his arms!

My dad…

My dad seems to be the guy everyone likes. He is so easy to talk to. My dad also got up early and worked hard so my mom could stay home with us kids. My dad is funny, I think he laughs the hardest at his jokes. There are so many times I can remember when I was a kid that we (my mom, dad, brother and sister) got to laughing so hard we were wiping tears from our eyes. My dad is such a loving man, who has instilled great morals and values in me. I am a better person (wife and mother) because of him. Happy Father’s Day Dad, I love you!

My dad is truly a DIY warrior! Here is is tackling his latest remodeling project. (If I were a 2×4 I would be scared!)
