I hope that you all had a wonderful day celebrating those special Fathers in your lives and I want thank you for all of your very sweet and touching sentiments on my Fathers Day post.
Fathers are unique to every family and carry the history of our ancestor's going back through time.
Fathers always teach us, either by example or default.
Either way, they keep us connected to our history and we must always try our best to honor our lineage by carrying on those positive attributes and strengths passed down to us by our Father's and Grandfather's before us.
By passing on those positive attributes and leaving the negative behind, we ensure future generations blessings beyond measure.
Speaking of blessings, we have had a few days of sun and clouds of equal measure, especially nice for Father's Day, as I hosted a little celebration for The Mr.
Here's the beaming Man of the Hour, surrounded by three of his favorite guy's.
From left to right; son in law, Eric (Heather) , Dennis, Gabe (eldest son) and Dustin (youngest).
Another special guest, Weenie Baby, takes a little time out where she can keep her eye on both the inside and outside.
You know, just in case somebody drops something tasty :)
Her partner in crime, Peanut savors a morsel.
On the menu:
Chicken Kabobs with pineapple and red pepper
Beef Kabobs with green pepper, sweet onion and mushrooms
Garden Macaroni Salad
Green Salad with golden 'cherry' tomatoes
Corn on the cob
Popsicle Champagne (served with popsicle in glass - yum!)
Boston Cream Pie
This is my messy plate.
It was good.
You'll have to take my word for it.
I was running around for days to get ready for it all.
Then it was over in a flash.
Funny how that works!
I meant to get photos of everyone, but I was so busy.
I did manage to take this sweet photo of my daughter in law Erica (Gabe), and my 'soon to be' daughter in law, Jen (Dustin).
One nice thing about this time of life for me is that my family keeps on growing in lovely ways!
I did manage to take some photos before everyone arrived.
My sweet Mr. brought me home these beautiful yellow lilies on Friday.
They look perfect with my redecorated kitchen.
I can't have a beach cottage, but I can create my own right here.
No matter that the sea is an hour away......
The yellow lilies look so pretty with the blues and greens.
A little peek - I will show you all the details next time.
Today I am just going to relax after my busy days of cleaning, shopping, and entertaining.
I love having my whole family here, filling the house with love and laughter.
I enjoyed honoring the wonderful Father my husband is.
Today is the last day of our nice weather, so I am going to gather some roses and do a little reminiscing.
I hope you had a lovely weekend and that you have some wonderful reminiscences of your own.
