Today was Jay's day and we told him he could do whatever he wanted. So, he started his day by sleeping in! We weren't able to make it to church, but I think we all really needed the extra sleep. When we got up, Jay made breakfast burritos for he and Nicole and I (Kendall doesn't like eggs, so she had waffles.) I know, what kind of wife lets her husband make breakfast on Father's day? Me!!! Actually, he enjoys making breakfast and he promised Nicole he would make breakfast burritos while she's here and since she's leaving in a week, he went ahead and made them today. After breakfast he opened his gift and his cards and read his poem. Kendall made him a really cute poem in school and the girls each got him a musical card and a combined touching card and I got him a lovey-dovey card and we got him a valet for the top of his dresser. He has so many electronic gadgets now (don't we all) that he needed a place to keep them all together, along with their chargers. The valet also has small drawers for keys, watches, loose change, sunglasses, etc. Don't ya just love Costco!!!! After we cleaned up breakfast, I got all showered and did my hair and make-up and the girls and I watched Eight Below (fabulous movie, by the way) while Jay tinkered in the garage with his magnets. He's building some contraption with wood, duct tape, glue, magnets, and nails to test the magnetic energy and build some conconction. Since it was his day, he asked for 3 hours to work on his project, so the girls and I entertained ourselves with Eight Below and then Kendall watched videos on You Tube while Nicole and I watched Ratatouille and I finished 4 loads of laundry. Then, at 4:00 we drove to the base and played 2 games of bowling and then had dinner at the bowling alley while watching the Laker game. All in all, it was a great Father's Day and although we miss Lonnie so much and wish we could have celebrated with D2 and Eric and Aaron, we had a wonderful family day together and I think Jay could feel how much his family loves him. Not just on Father's Day, but every day of the year. We really are so very blessed.
