Happy Daddy's Day!

Yesterday we had a great day as a family celebrating our Daddy! Marshall of course woke up too early, so thankfully he was satisfied with a movie to let both Mommy and Daddy catch a few more Z's!!

On Sunday's it is our tradition to have pancakes for supper, but this Sunday we were having a joint Father's Day dinner with some friends of ours. So I decided that I would make Irish pancakes for breakfast! Marshall and I tried to have it ready before Irish got out of bed, so that we could give him breakfast in bed...but that plan failed a little! We still had a delicious breakfast of Pancakes topped with yogurt, blueberries, and strawberries along with a strawberry, mango, peach smoothie!!

After Breakfast Marshall and I gave Irish our "appreciation" gift to him. As we both knew, he loved it.

After church we had our good friends over for dinner. Besides the homemade potato and yam fries, I think the highlight was the Skor Cake we had for dessert!! YUMM

Irish, we (Marshall and I) just want you to know that we love and appreciate everything that you do for us. We hope we let you know this not just on Father's day, but everyday!! We love you so much, and enjoy the time we get to spend with you!! Thanks for being such a great Daddy!!

The creative side of me

For the past couple of weeks, I've really been 'getting into' my creative side!! I have finally gotten around to making the magnets that I have been thinking about for ages,

AND just today I finished the burp cloths! I must say I am quite proud of I have never really thought of myself as the 'sewing type'....but I think I'm somewhat getting addicted to it! I love it, and the feeling I get when I accomplish something! Although I would never have known what to do or where to start if it wasn't for my wonderful Mother-in-law!! (Thank You Momma K!!!)
