Fathers Day 2012

I feel I had to go extra overboard this year in Fathers Day because Cody got pretty jipped last year. In my defense, however, I hadn't slept in two months because of Garrett's issues. My life at that point was a big blur! So much got put on that back burner last spring and summer, but this year has been loads better. Even though I didn't get the 2011 version of the "Dad" book put together, I was still able to interview the kids. So this year I put the 2011 AND the 2012 editions together and we had a good laugh while reading the questions and answers in the book. Here is this year:

How tall is Dad? I don't know, maybe about 10 feet. No, actually 10 1/2 feet tall.
How much does Dad weigh? 200 pounds
What does Dad like to eat? Maybe like his Dad's dead cow...you know steak. And potatoes because he lived in Idaho. Oh, and licorice.

(Next year Devin will answer the questions for the first time. That'll be a hoot!!)

For dinner, Cody requested lasagna, french bread, salad, and chocolate cake with strawberry sauce for dessert.  It was all soooo god, which was horrible for my dieting ways! We love the tradition of taking the kids to the store and letting them each pick out a present for Mom or Dad or for each other....something that THEY pick out that is individual to THEM.  This year, Hailey picked out an ice cream cake (which we had the next night for FHE dessert and it was amazing).  Devin picked out a pretty cool water gun, Lauren got him a fishing pole so we could go fishing all the time in Idaho, and Ethan got him the new Sherlock Holmes movie (we saw that recently for a date night and loved it).
