Happy Father's Day 2011

This little girl loves her daddy.

Like a lot, a lot.

As well she should.
He's a daddy who is always up for playing outside, having Lego Star Wars contests, making up silly stories and songs, sharing his quarters for those junk toy/candy/video game machines that are oh so tempting, going on long bike rides and just generally bringing the fun to her daily life.

In other words he's an all around super duper daddy.

Annelise made a card for Scott today to wish him a Happy Father's Day and signed it "from your faverit dather", which was cute since she's his only one. He got to pick the restaurant for lunch today after church (well, Annelise and I had to agree and we vetoed his first choice of BBQ but all happily agreed on a yummy Italian place).

And then?

Then I coerced her into making a short video so I could practice my mad 8mm iPhone app skills.

And clearly I don't have any. In my feeble defense this was my first attempt and before we could re-shoot (that's film lingo you know) she took off to go swimming at Pappo and Grandma's house (I can't compete with that). That said, here are the top five (or six or seven) things Annelise loves about her daddy.
Note to self: Next time turn off the old timey sound on the 8mm app and don't even try to get a 7 year old to focus when she's itching to hit the pool.

Hope y'all had a wonderful day celebrating the daddys in your life (and in your memories). They are such a blessing!

  3. Thanks Anna, she was obviously ready to get on with her life and stop filming.

    I hate spam comments and having to delete spam. Ugh.

  4. now that is destined to become a classic! I like how she responds to the "I love you" prompt
