Chad unfortunately has to work on Father's Day, but really June 19 is just a date and I can celebrate him as a wonderful husband and an incredible dad on any day. So I chose to do it last night! He came home from work and we had a Mitchell family favorite for supper, Mexican Mountain. After dinner, I had Trace come with me and take the Father's Day presents to him. Trace couldn't get the words "Happy Father's Day" to come out right so we took the present in and said, "Happy Daddy's Day".
A little background before I share more on the present. Chad and I have never really been present people, we had rather go and do something together instead of spending the money on something that only one of us gets enjoyment out of. However, I have had something really special that I have been wanting to create for him for a while now and Father's Day seemed like the perfect time to do it. I also, thanks to my new obsession with couponing, was able to custom make his Father's Day card (for free!) on http://www.tinyprints.com/. Here is what his card looked like:
Chad said this is the best gift, other than our boys, that I have ever given him. Win! for me. I absolutely can't wait to get this framed and up on our wall. It shows such a special moment in all of our lives and to me exemplifies what a great father he is. I am so blessed to have Chad as the father of my children. He is a wonderful man of God and I can only hope that one day my boys will become the man that their father is.
Happy Father's Day Chad,
I love you with all my heart and thank God everyday that he has blessed me with you.
