The Birthday Boy...

"On the day that you were born, the flowers bloomed and the unicorns, danced and sang the whole day long, on the day that you were born."

It's my dad's birthday today...what a special day and what a special dad.  There is no other like him.  Here are Little Miss and him a few years ago. (that's my oldest nephew beside Little Miss)
 And here they are recently.  This picture reminds me of my dad and I when we used to go the Girl Scout Father Daughter dances.  I used to love dancing with dad because he would twirl me around and we would count how many times I could do memories.  I'm going to have to ask mom to dig up some of those old pictures.
Dad is always there when you need him, especially during the times that can be oh so tough.  He's good like that...
He does anything I a heartbeat....without complaint.  I'm pretty much a spoiled brat I think.
My kids are so lucky to have him in their lives too.  He's such a great Pepere because he really would still like to be a kid. (wouldn't we all?)
 As I have gotten older, I realize that I am a lot like my dad....I "am my father's daughter", as my mom likes to say.  
Dad, I know sometimes I have gotten embarrassed by your silliness and corny jokes, but really, I'm so very proud to be your daughter.  Thanks for being you...silly jokes and all.  I love you!!!  
Happy Birthday Dad! xo

"Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Daddy!"
