A King among men…

Happiest Fathers Day to the father of our four teens!

It has been an amazing ride!!

Breakfast in bed…handed over by a quite adorable 18 year old guy with severe bed head hair

A groggy 19 year old pulling himself up to wish you a happy day

Others still sleeping….and will…until 11:00. Teens!

You are loved.

And hey….I weeded the dog path for ya...my back still hurts!

although...I know you would rather see the car washed...

I can only exert so much energy, ya know...maybe next year...

dog path 008

A man's children and his garden both reflect the amount of weeding done during the growing season.

~Anonymous

And, maybe more appropriately, at this slice in our life…

When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.
~ Mark Twain

Happy, Happy Day to all of the Daddies out there!

And my Dad?...He never did believe in Hookypook Hallmark holidays his exact words...

So a wink and a nod to him...because it's Sunday

He's fixing something way up there.

Mornin' Linda,
I used my napkin rings last night for a little get together, and they were a hit. I love them and have already lent them out for a Father's Day brunch today. Thank you so much for the prize. The candle smells wonderful.

Linda, I'm thinking the father of FOUR TEENS :o! deserves to have his car washed too!!!! So, you get back out there. And, tell him I said so!!!

Somehow in my messed up blogroll, I lost track of your blog. It's my dumb fault, but I hope that you know that I am busy catching up. I do love your blog and it is so nice to compare notes with a fellow Floridian!

Cheers,
Sue.

What a blessed dad! Children are fun... when they are small (like my 5 year old) you really, really want them to sleep late - and then a few years later...

Thanks for stopping by SweeterHomes and leaving a comment. I put the house on reserve just for you;)

I have another giveaway of Country Living on Sweeterliving.blogspot.com - just in case you're interested...

Have a great week!
