Father's Day

To be totally honest, I have dreaded Father's Day every year since my dad passed away.  It is just one of those days when you are constantly reminded that you don't have a dad to celebrate the day with.  However, this year was a different story!  I now have a "Father" in my life to celebrate on this day!  I've been planning my Father's Day celebration for Matt for several weeks.  It worked out perfectly that he had to work at the fire station on Saturday, so I had the whole day to get things ready! Here are a few pictures from our Father's Day celebration.

 We made Matt a basket full of his favorite things.

   If you can't read the poem it says:

My Daddy is a fireman.  
He works night and day, in a very special firehouse, not too far away.
He crawls down halls and knocks down walls in buildings old and new.  
To save people's lives and their belongings too.
He doesn't mind the summer sun, or winter's bitter cold, because it's a firemans job to be so very bold.
I hope dear God, your're watching, be it tweleve, six, or three, or whenever my daddy is working
Lord bring him home to me!

Is that not the sweetest poem/prayer???  I LOVE IT!

Matt got home from work this morning and he opened his gifts!

Love watching the two of them together!!!

The picture hanging in Raegan's room!  It's perfect!

 Yesterday we got together with Matt's family.  Chris, Haley, Owen, and Cooper are in town from Park City for the week, so everyone hung out around the pool together for most of the afternoon!  It was also my birthday, so we had cake to celebrate my 31 years too!  I love seeing all the kids together, but this time was especially fun to see Raegan in the mix!

All that playing wore this girl out!

2 seconds of fame....

My family always says that they watch the news each night just looking for Matt.  DeKalb Fire is usually on the news several times each night, so I am really surprised that we don't see him or his crew more often!!!  Well, he made the news today at an apartment fire!!!  Here he is!

6 months old!

Raegan went for her 6 month check up on Friday.  She is 16 lbs 6 oz and 27 inches long now!  That puts her in the 50-75th percentile for weight and 90th percentile for height.  I am loving being home with her this summer!!! I start summer school in 2 weeks, so I am going to soak in every minute of these next 2 weeks!!!!!
