Father's Day 2015

The kids were  pretty excited to show their  craft projects for my husband on Father's day.  As soon as they wake up, they  brought the box in the living room so their Dad can see it.  These are the kind of gifts that I love because the kids  put  thought, time, and love into it when they prepared them.  
These are empty  candle jars that I saved and we made them into photo jars!
My husband also love the paintings that they did  for him.  Even my son took a lot of effort into making Daddy a special one.
After  eating the brunch I made, we went to attend  church.  There was a guest priest  that day.  He's an Indian, a missionary priest from India.  He told us a very funny but joke,
After the mass, we  came home and let our fur babies out so they can do their business before we went to visit my father-in-law.  It gave us the chance to take some photos in our front porch.
Moments like this makes me want to have more kids, lol.  Just kidding, two is  enough for us, just a perfect number   for us to raise and support.
We brought Dad a fresh strawberry pie.
Glad that Dad was in a very good spirit when we  visited.  He wasn't loaded yet so the kids had fun interacting with him.  I always like it when we go there and my father-in-law is not drunk because he  act normal but when he is drunk, he is very ornery.
Before we left, we took a family photo. 
 My husband took the kids to the swimming pool when we came back home but  I stayed  and mowed the lawn since it's Father's day so I gave him a break, lol.
It's been raining here  so we  were not able to mow our yard for a week, the grass were so tall already and it was a bit harder to  cut.  You have to go very slowly so the mower won't die.  But anyway, I got it all done and my husband was impressed as I cut  everything  including the outside  part of the fence.  I normally leave that for him but  tis time I finished everything.

I have to stay on my husband to mow our yard. However it has been so hot out here this week with highs near 100 degrees that I have not pushed the issue. Our yard does look okay for now though.

How clever is your candle jars that you upcycled! He looks like he loved them!

Aww, yes, these are definitely the types of gifts dads actually like! My poor father got a cheap screwdriver set or cheap kitchen knives every year when I was growing up, unless my school did a project for Father's Day. Those candle jars are really cute!
