Father's Day 2011

I hope you all had a great weekend and a great Father's Day!  We celebrated a little early...since Sundays are just downright crazy for us, and all of those in ministry, or highly involved in their church, we usually don't plan anything to do on special holidays, or plans get adjusted, and readjusted many times.  So this year I just decided on Saturday afternoon that we were going to celebrate the father in our house on Saturday night! 

I am so glad that we did!  It was a nice, relaxing, and calm evening.  I was prepared, something I haven't been lately, and it was just so nice to sit back and relax.  I made dinner, and we picked up special treats from the cutest coffee/bake shop.  Molly picked out our sweet treats, she chose a chocolate doughnut, a piece of turtle cheesecake, and a cut-out cookie all decorated for Father's Day.  We all sampled each treat.

Our gifts this year were simple and nice.  A new polo shirt, a movie, and a coffee mug.  Which if you know my husband, this mug will be lost by next week.  But he needed a new one, since he lost the last one!  

I also made shirts for the girls to wear at church on Sunday, they said "I love daddy."  Those were a surprise for Eric.  I ran out of time to stitch around the letters, so I still need to do that, but they looked cute, if I do say so myself!

At church we had kegs of root beer we ordered from Sprecher's.  I had never heard of Sprecher Brewery until we moved here, but they are known for their root beer and orange cream soda.  You can tour the brewery and get free samples, something we really want to do.  I think the dads enjoyed the free root beer, and so did everyone else that grabbed a glass, or two!

 Isn't this cookie so cute!  And it was delicious!
 Molly's message to Eric, haha!
 Matchy-Matchy Father's Day shirts

    Hope you all had a great day!

Love the shirts!! Also love the idea to celebrate early - honestly never thought of it, but I think it would be really good for us to least in this season of life.

I love her card and their shirts are SO cute. Great job. Guess who didn't get one picture of Dad with the kids on Father's Day? I feel horrible. It just got away from us. Your pictures are adorable.
