Happy Father's Day!

What do you say about a husband who is not only a one-of-a-kind husband, but an out of this world dad on his first Father's Day?

Nate is a rare breed of Dad. Willing to jump in to plug the paci at all hours of the night, change the dirty diapers without thinking twice, and spends many nights whipping up pretty amazing meals. He had all sorts of special tricks, songs, and giggles with Matilda.

Most nights when Nate comes home, Matilda and I are already sitting at the table for Matilda's dinner. You can tell how much Matilda just loves her Daddy, because the second she hears that back door open, her eyebrows go up, her feet start kicking, and the giggles start. And as soon as she sees that bike helmet and full on biking get-up, she knows she is getting some serious snuggles at any moment.

So with Father's Day approaching, and knowing that this weekend was going to be filled with family fun for Tillies birthday I decided to try out a rapidly growing website to fulfill the Father's Day gift. Enter Where you can find people to do some pretty crazy things for $5.

Like draw a art rendition of a favorite photo:

Ok, ok. I admit. This is kind of  of creepy. And the original is probably better.

 But it was the thought. Right?

So I tried again. This time, I think we got a winner. For $5, you can get a person to make a video. You send in your photos, copy and song request and they do all the grunt work.

To my dear husband, I am so lucky to have you and Matilda is even luckier to have you as a Dad. Thank you for everything you do to keep this family functioning, happy and full of fun.

We love you!
