Another year older for this Sweet n' Sassy Girl.

This past year, you have grown before our so, so many ways.

Perhaps a little less noticeable on the growth chart...
You are still the most petite of 7 year olds, but your heart is larger than I think I could even begin to describe.  If you have an emotion inside of you, it is plainly laid out for all the world to see.   Your flair for dramatics surprise and exhaust us everyday.

You LOVE with everything.  You CRY with everything.  For a little thing, YOU LIVE BIG!

Still so sweet...Dad & I can always count on you for an impromptu hug, kiss, & "I Love You"   Your gentleness with Cashton & Georgia is sporadic recently, but there is never a moment you are not willing to give to your baby brother, Colton.  From being a diaper gopher to serenading him for mommy when she just needs a few minutes, you are an incredible helper!

Over the past year, you have gone from barely writing your name to spelling out all sorts of things!  You love learning!  It brings us so much joy to see the look of accomplishment in your eyes! 

You will do BIG THINGS in this life....

You already have. 

We love you SO Very Much, Samantha Brynn!

How do you say Happy Father's Day?

My dad was never really an "I LOVE YOU" kind of guy.

So, although we say it every once in awhile, it's not the kind of thing that flows off the tongue.

He's the kind of guy you get a card like this:
Every year for Father's Day, we all go to the baseball a little tailgating, drink a little beer....basically just being together.   It's not sappy.  It's us.  And WE Love him for it.

Here's a pic from our EARLY Father's Day Baseball game this year....BEFORE the torrential, game- suspending, downpour:
Father's Day T-Rats Game 2014

Now, as a wife and mother, though, I get to wish another man in my life a VERY HAPPY FATHER'S DAY....


This Guy does say I LOVE YOU often and easily, and I am so grateful our little munchkins get to hear it every day.

So, here's to you, Daddy!

Bacon-Loving, Samantha would like you to know:

From Super-Awesome- Cool Cashton to You:

Sweet, Incessant, Georgia says:

and from Colton, he understands:

For those of you reading this that don't know our kiddos personally....these cards are RIDICULOUSLY SPOT ON! Every kiddo and every Daddy has that special way of saying how they feel.  I just so happened to find everything I needed to say at  (I bet you could too)

Make sure you tell that special Dad in your life just how much they mean to you....
Whether it's a Card, or a BEER, or an I LOVE YOU!
