THE BEST GIFT I EVER GAVE MY KIDS AND GRANDKIDS

We had a great Sunday celebrating Father's Day! We celebrated three GREAT DADS that I am proud to call family.

WITHOUT A DOUBT the GREATEST GIFT I HAVE EVER GIVEN MY KIDS IS THEIR DAD. He not only loves them, he lives to serve them, to make their lives easier! He is the ultimate POP, taking the little's to school and breakfast everyday. That is their time and nothing comes before it. If Amanda is running behind he dresses Jack, then takes the boys to eat, then to two different schools and would not have it any other way. He picks up Parker at school and many days goes back and picks Jack up from his school. He never misses a school program. ALWAYS takes PARKER by to get his snack of choice after school..no place is too far or too inconvenient. He INDULGES the kids with a PASSION and loves every minute of it. THEY ARE BLESSED KIDS. If you read Greg's letter, you will get the picture better from him.

We had a sick little Jack all week last week so did not do our normal out to eat day! The kids gave Jack a GREAT NEW GRILL for FATHERS DAY,
so we stayed home all day and just had family time. Is there anything BETTER? The kids went to the store, bought all the food, cooked all the food and we played with the littles! We watched golf all afternoon, (which I can only watch because it puts us one day closer to football starting),napped and played with kids. Watching little cousins play together is one of my favorite things.
A BOY THAT LOVES HIS DAD
I had a bad picture day Sunday. Someone looked really crazy in almost every picture I took. Some days are like that. Here are a few from Sunday and a few pictures from Greg and Dana's Beach Trip last month!

AMANDA, MICAH, PARKER and a NOT VERY HAPPY JACK


COUSINS HAVING FUN......JACK IS GOING TO BE PART OF ANY
PLAYING!

Seems like yesterday Grayson was born, having a rough start and in the NICU. Now he is WALKING every where! How time flies!
DANA and HER LITTLE MAN! GRAYSON WILL BE ONE TOMORROW!
TWO PEAS IN A POD ALWAYS WITH THEIR DS
A FUN TRIP TO THE BEACH BEFORE THE OIL ARRIVED.
Yesterday was a trip to the movies with Jack and Parker to see Toy Story 3. That's an entire post by itself. I got all the prizes shipped today, so if you were a winner, your PRIZE is on its way.
Many of you will remember little Maggie that I ask prayer for some time ago. On her Caringbridge site today her family ask for some privacy as they say their good-byes. She has fought an incredible fight against a horrible brain tumor. They have exhausted every possible treatment from hospitals all across the country. My heart aches for them tonight. I also know her grandparents and have been in contact with them. As I look at my littles I can only try to imagine how they must feel watching both their child and their grandchild go through this. Please say a prayer for the Cobb family tonight.

Your grandkids look like so much fun!

My kids are with their Nana and Papa right now. They come back later today. I have had 2 days by myself and it feels really weird without them. But hubby and I have been able to chat and talk more! Love that!

Praying for the Cob family...how sad!

So sad about little Maggie and her family. I pray God surrounds them with his peace and comfort.

Beautiful pictures!!! Thanks for sharing your "littles" with us!! Have a great night!

Hi Teresa,
Oh, it's so obvious how much you both adore your "littles". They are very lucky to have you in their lives. I wish my girls had the opportunity for more time with my folks, and they were as dedicated to their grandkids! They were always a little "too busy". Ah well, everyone is different.
I am so sad for the family you mentioned, I can't imagine the pain.
Thank you for stopping by! Come back again soon.
XO

Rachel @ A Cupcake for Moose said...

Hi Teresa! What a fun post. Sounds like you husband is the perfect grandpa! I love that you call them "Littles." So cute! I hope you have a lovely weekend with your family!

Hi Teresa! Oh, what a wonderful day you all must have had! I love seeing the pictures of your family! And blessings abound.
My heart goes out to the family of the little one! Oh, I can't imagine the hurt they feel. I will keep them in my prayers.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Just a little something from Judy said...

The letter your son wrote to his dad was so heartwarming. Oh, how every dad would love to receive a letter like that. I really appreciate that you shared it with us.

As for Cobb family, I just cannot imagine the heartbreak they are dealing with right now.

What adorable kids! I have a Parker, too, but she's our granddaughter, named for her great-great-grandparents; my daughter adored them, and that was their last name.

Blog reading...I don't have a very good method either! I try to comment back when people comment on my blog, and to go through the list of people I Follow sort of methodically. Often I'll set the laptop on the kitchen counter and just read a blog every time I get near it! So many wonderful blogs, so little time...

Eager to know what the drawing is for, and appreciating the fact that I don't have to go through those multiple steps you mentioned to enter!
