Father's Weekend

Okay so to be fair I guess you could say 'Father's Week' is technically now 'Father's Weekend'.

Trying to get Corey off my computer during the day is like trying to pry a corn dog from a fat kid at the state fair.

He is constantly searching for jobs. Constantly.

He just 'wants to get a job is all'. And you gotta respect that.

So for my first Father Post I shall be honoring you Dad.


To start off I have one question.

Were you absolutely terrified when you saw how big my ears were?

Don't lie.

I asked Corey the other day what he hoped for our children and he said;

"I hope they get my ears Krystle."


Don't deny it Corey. You can't take it back. What's done is done. What's said is said.

But it's okay cause I hope they get MY personality. (and hairline).

Dad I love that you are so tall. And strong.

I love that you are our # 1 fan. All the time.

I love that you encourage each of us to set goals. And to reach them.

I love that you study and read. I love that you are so knowledgeable.

I love that you embrace the fact that 5 out of 6 of your children are girls, instead of wishing for more boys.

I love that education is important to you.

I love your testimony. I love that you aren't afraid to share it.

I love that you believe in us. All the time. When we may not even believe in ourselves.

I love that you also see potential in us.

I love that you don't give up on us. Ever.

I love that you are so excited to finally be a Grandpa.

I love that you gave Ashley's kid cake even when she said no. Uncle Doug is so cool.

I love trips to the cabin with you. Even if it is in a lame motor home that says 'roughin' it smoothly' on the side.

I loved going fishing with you.

I love that you teach us to laugh at ourselves.

I am so grateful for you Dad.

I know it is a month late but Happy Father's Day again.

I love you.
