Thanks Daddy

Chuck is a wonderful daddy. He loves his girls so much and does such a great job teaching them and showing them how much he loves each one of them. He goes out of his way to find things that will enrich their lives.

Last Saturday, Chuck spent several hours of heavy lifting to bring home this wonderful piano. Leland has been wanting one for some time now, and you can see the joy in her face as she works on a lesson with her Dad. Chuck has been scouring the classifieds for weeks to find a free/cheap piano. One day he found 2, so he rented a truck and with the help of a friend went and picked up both of them. This beauty now graces our home with music of little fingers. The other piano is also in our house, but has several non-working keys. We are trying to find a new home for that piano.

The other night Chuck brought home a box of hot, fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Yummy! The girls loved their treat. Lucy wasn't so convinced at first what all the excitement was about. Chuck had to convince her to take a bite and try the doughnut. The flaky icing concerned her so much that she started to eat her doughnut without lifting it off her plate. She is so silly.

After hearing how cheap the leftover Halloween costumes were at Wal-Mart ($3-$5), Chuck suggested I go get some dress ups for the girls. We even hit up a second Wal-Mart in town when he came home from work, just to make sure we got a good variety. Isn't Leland the most adorable pirate?!?! Lucy was very persistent that she wanted this princess gown. She wore it for hours even though it's 4 sizes too big for her.

Chuck is patient, understanding, loving, and helpful. He is the best daddy to little girls. I am so grateful to have this man in my life.

We love you Daddy!

  1. What a sweet post. The piano looks really pretty and fits perfectly in that little nook. I am sure Emily will love playing on that when she visits. Will Uncle Chuck give her lessons too??!

    Leland is a really cute pirate and I love how Lucy is so dainty about her doughnut. Now I am craving some HOT fresh Krispy Kreme. Do you remember selling those door to door growing up??! I wish somebody would bring those to my door!!!
