Love Overflowing

Father’s Day

I hope Stephen had a great Father’s Day! He is such a wonderful Daddy to Miss Emily. She loves him to pieces, as every little girl loves their daddy.

We went to church, had a nice lunch at home and then spent some time over at Stephen’s parent’s house. It was a good day!

Happy Father’s Day!!!


You are such a wonderful Daddy to Miss Emily. She loves you with all of her heart, even when she is playing hard to get. She gets up in the morning just to see you before you go and looks forward to when you get home at night. She asks me many times throughout the day “Where is Daddy?” and often asks to meet Daddy for lunch.

She loves the time you spend together. She especially loves building towers and castles with you. I know that your relationship will grow as she grows and you will become even closer. She will settle into the roll of “Daddy’s girl” like a champ.

Thank you for being such a caring daddy who loves his daughter more than anything. Looking forward to celebrating many, many more Father’s Day with you. I hope your day is full of love, hugs and a little relaxation thrown in!

And now a tribute to Daddy and Daughter- all the fun and love had from last Father’s Day until now.

Father’s Day cards

I was feeling a little crafty this week and didn’t know what to do with a 2 year old that was stuck indoors. Duh! Father’s Day cards! Emily was super excited with this idea.

The first card we were going to make was for daddy. I was browsing and found a Yo Gabba Gabba picture frame that was perfect!!! Foofa is Emily’s favorite and I think Stephen likes the show just as much. Emily loved doing this project! I love because they have really cute crafty stuff that you just print out and go. I think it turned out well. Emily keeps asking Daddy where his card is (I hid it). “The secret card Daddy!”

The second card we made was for Papa J. He calls Emily the Energizer Bunny so we went with that theme. I found a picture of the going-going-going bunny and printed it off. Emily then colored a piece of construction paper and had fun with the glue.

We still have one more card to make.  I am sure that a) it will rain soon or b) it will be hotter than an oven out there soon so we will get it done before we see Papa B next weekend.

Rock n’ ……sparkle

Emily and I like to do artsy fartsy stuff on occasion. It’s been a little while since we have done anything since the weather has been so nice for the most part and we fill our days up with other fun stuff. Father’s Day is quickly approaching so I was trying to think of something that Emily could do.

Last week we were walking around the neighborhood when we came across a house that was ripping out their rock beds. They had a huge pile of rocks sitting next to the road to be disposed of. Emily and I picked out a couple of good size rocks and took them home.  And they sat on our porch for over a week!

Monday we had no car and it was rainy so we decided to do something with our rocks. I scrubbed them clean and let Emily go to work. She painted one for Stephen, one for Papa J, one for Papa B and one for herself. She saw the sparkles and went to town! I am going to spray them down with a clear coat finish before we wrap them up.

Emily is so proud of them. She was telling Daddy about painting rocks when he got home. Luckily Stephen thought she said “playing blocks”.
