Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all having a nice Father's Day whether it be spending the day with your loved ones, talking to them or just thinking about them! When I spoke with my dad this morning, it sounded like he was going to have a great day just doing what he loves & that's Entarcia (wood working). He was happy that my mom made him eggs benedict for breakfast & she was making steak & baked potatoes for dinner (both sound soo yummy, but I'm on a diet). Was great talking to him, because he's not much a phone person, but I knew today would be a little took him longer to say "let me hand you over to your mother". LOL, that's just one of the things that I love about him though!!!

Here is the card I made for him, followed my the card that Gilby I made for my hubby!!! Didn't realize it until after I made my dad's card that I had used the same image last year & the same paper line. I hope he doesn't notice when he gets it. Yep, I said tomorrow, I thought for sure he would have received it by Saturday, since I mailed it on Tuesday (he's in WA St. & I live in VA). Guess I'm going to have to start sending things a week in advance, I'll remember this next month when it's his birthday. Any hoodle-hoo, he'll be surprised tomorrow!!!

My hubby loved his card, also probably had something to do with how silly Gilby was acting!!!
Gilby was sooo funny, my hubby &  I both had wished we had a camera. When it was time to give him his card I called Gilby over to the couch, well he was soo excited when he saw that we were giving daddy a card! I told him to give it to daddy & as I was handing it to my hubby, Gilby snatched it away in his mouth & started to give it to me!!!!! He did this like 3 times!!! LOL, my hubby &  I were cracking up, it was hysterical!!! Even when typing this now, it still makes me laugh!!!
For as long as I can remember, my dad has had a Mustache, so I thought this would be a fun idea! I have a picture of him (I was just a baby), where he was wearing a fake "handlebar" mustache for a costume party!
You will want to click on the next image to see all the fun facts, especially if you're a fan of the Handlebar Mustache! LOL
He's wobbling
