My plan for Father's day

Written by: *Nikki* at 11:31 PM
So as we all know Father's Day is coming up....
And I don't know about you guys...but this holiday for me..is one of the hardest to so something with...

What do you buy for a man who has everything...or needs stuff that only HE can pick out.
Obviously nothing can be a suprise.

So after my Sister in Law's wedding..we are taking Lyla up to my mom's ...and ....Gregg and I are having dinner and maybe a movie...just us!

That doesn't ever happen...he is always working...so we never get the chance for a date night...

I got him a card..from me..and I got him a card from Lyla..hers is recordable..and I recorded her saying "I Love You, Daddy!"...so so so cute!

And ..I am making him a photo book of all pictures of him and Lyla with a poem about What Makes a Daddy...So cute!!

I am guilty of not telling my husband enough that he a GREAT father and I thank him so much for just being here with us...alot of kids don't have dads. Which mean alot of mom's have to do it themselves...and those women...are strong!! Very strong! Because eventhough Gregg works second shift and I do alot by myself...at least I know sometime...someday..he will be home and I can get a break...those single mom's...I tip my hat to you! You deserve something special!

So on Father's Day..I just want to make my husband feel appreciated and loved! He deserves it! and I consider myself Blessed!!

If you have a Father's Day plan..link it up to Amy's blog..New Nostalgia...

4 wonderful opinions!:

I agree, it's such a hard holiday for me too...knowing what to get or do. My son and I are going out today to look for a grill. We don't usually get big gifts but our grill is embarrasing and I think after 10 yrs...my husband deserves a new one.
Oh...and I use the dot dot dot too! :)

I agree! Our Daddy doesn't want crafts or store bought grrr -too tough! (Tho last year we did make him a decorated box full of strips of paper saying things the kids loved about him) This year I just stocked the fridge with all his favorite brands/treats etc that I might not buy (trying to eat healthy) otherwise. Also framed his favorite pic to put in a gift bag with junk food/candy and a gift card to Bass Pro!
BTW - love your profile - as you can see I to ... A LOT! ;-)

Thanks for linking up! I love the picture book poem idea. What a great way to honor your husband! :) You are so right -- what a gift to have a husband who is also such a great dad. :)
