We love this Dad...

 ... for lots of reasons.  But one of them really showed up today.  After opening presents and having lunch at Red Robin, here's how Tom spent his Father's Day:

...providing the deposit to bring baby Belinda to our family next month

...making a trip to Target for new, larger bikes for all the littles

...supervising the littles while they swam 

...watching the big girls jet ski 

...and finally getting some time after dinner for some quiet fishing.

Real dads put their families first and nothing touches my heart more.  Thanks for all of your hard work and love, Tom.  We love you.  :)

We went on a cruise and had a blast!  The only negative was not having Emily with us... she has started grad school and a new part time job and wasn't able to attend.  But we did get to hang with Alli and the boys!  Woot!

Four years home

 Fours years home today... look how much they have grown and changed!

The first month home, they were five years old and
 wearing size 3T.  So incredibly cute!

Now they are nine, and still tiny...
 but such beautiful big girls they have become!

My heart bursts with love for them every day.  I feel so blessed to be their mommy.
