this father's day my dear husband woke up to the sweet sound of...our smoke alarm going off.
I got up earlier than everyone to quietly get monkey bread in the oven. pete's mom always makes this delicious treat...and I was trying to make something he loves for breakfast. but I think I overloaded the pan a bit and after 20 minutes or so of cook time butter started squirting all over the oven and burning and smoking...and stinking. and then came the high pitched noise of our fire warning system and his dreams of sleeping a little bit longer on father's day were long gone.
charlotte slept through the 3 different smoke alarm soundings...but eden was awake with the first. she gave him her cards and drawings that she had picked out especially for him. the only t.v. show that eden watches is tom and jerry. I'm not kidding. she watches 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes at bed time. it's hilarious. God bless boomerang. so when she found a tom and jerry father's day card she just about flipped her lid...because she loves watching it with pete. he was pretty excited about it, too.
charlotte was still asleep at this point...but she decorated him a card at chick-fil-a family night and was quite proud to present it to him at church.
I am so thankful for pete, and for my own father and grandfather. I have been surrounded by Godly examples of fatherhood my entire life and I could not be more grateful. I really missed seeing my Dad on father's day, but we had a nice phone call chat and I will be seeing him very soon!
hope you all had a fun father's day weekend...that didn't involve smoking monkey bread!
