My Not-So-Old Dad

Alrighty. I'm way late on posting about my dad's birthday. Because going up and down the stairs is difficult for me, every time I come down without the camera, there's no way I'm going to go back up for it. So now that I finally managed to remember to bring the camera down, I can do a little posty-posty.

My sisters already did an incredible job of posting about my cute dad. So check out Karlenn's post and Brianna's post for their descriptions of the man we all love and his birthday party this year.

Here are the top 10 reasons I love my dad:

10. He's a dang hard worker.
9. He has the most integrity and honesty of anyone I know.
8. He's so photogenic! I wish I would have inherited that trait (along with the others, of course).
7. He's fun to be around.
6. He's super generous with his time and money.
5. He turns the other cheek-I've seen people be super jerks to him and he'll always forgive and forget.
4. He's a really good Sunday school teacher.
3. He's way athletic-he's competed in a triathlon before, and only a couple of years ago.
2. He'd do anything for anyone, regardless of what he gives up for himself.
1. He put up with 5 women in his house. 'Nuff said.

Well Dad, you're the best, end of story. I hope tax season doesn't kill you this year. Only 6 days left! Love you!

Copy-cat Nat! It's all good. It's a compliment really.

ha, ha, just kiddin'. You got some obvious traits that I left out in my little blog. I hope that dad actually read these things...

He really is a great man.

I'm a jerk that I didn't do some kind of tribute-thingey for him.

Natalie:
I love your family blog! And I love your family. So glad that you are here in IF. Your boys truly bring joy to me.
Thanks for the "top ten" list about me. I don't think I live up to most of what you said, but I can say that I do try my best.
We are excited for your new arrival - a girl!! Wow, that will be a huge change for you, but also it will be an incredible blessing.
I want you to know how much I love you and your Mom and your sisters. All of you mean everything to me.
Love - Dad
