Father’s Day & S’mores Fondue

Hello, dear ones! I hope you had a wonderful Father’s Day. This day has always been hard for me since my Dad died. I’m thankful that I got to spend 24 years with him. I know he is happy with Jesus. Still, I get teary.

How are you? Do you have your Daddy today? I know that if you are a follower of Jesus, like me, then we both have our Heavenly Daddy. He will never leave us. That reminds me of the song “Good Good Father” by Chris Tomlin.  Happy Father’s Day, Father God! We love you!

This is also a time to honor my husband for the loving Dad he is. I am so thankful for my hubby and the two sweet boys I have because of him.

Leeland, Michael, and I started our Father’s Day crafting early. I found this adorable handprint craft for Leeland at: http://gluedtomycraftsblog.com/2016/05/daddys-grilling-partner-keepsake-wfree-printable.html

We used an ink pad instead of paint. Chris is great at grilling, so it was perfect.
Michael put together this handy card from www.thedatingdivas.com . It was an exclusive for subscribers. They give out a lot of freebies. I recommend them highly. The tools all have thankful sayings on them. I threw together a romantic card by using vintage couple pics. I gave Chris a coupon for a full day of shooting at the range.

I was inspired by a Lifeway sales paper and put together this craft stick house picture frame.

I have two living grandpas, but can you believe, that I have four grandpas in heaven! I’ve been blessed with grandpas. Some because of divorce and others death. My only living grandpa by blood died this past February on my birthday. So my Dad gets to see his Dad for Father’s Day in heaven. I bet they are having a time. I miss them.

We made more keepsakes for grandpas, but this next one was creative on my part. My stepdad Kim loves racing, so I made Leeland’s footprint into a race car and Michael’s fingers into the pit crew.

I want to share these sweet pics of Chris spending time with our boys.

We all were under the weather this morning, but we felt up to eating out by supper time. So we headed to Applebees. Leeland learned how to color…on the table. I hope crayon will come off.

He also enjoyed eating the crayons. He flirted with the waitresses and everyone he could see. Leeland kept talking to the people next to us. My kids are definitely “socialized”, lol! 😉

Like any good father, Chris decided to experiment on give Leeland lemon to see what he’d do. Leeland is one brave trooper because he didn’t even blink. I don’t think much phases this one.

We came home for dessert. I set everything up for S’mores fondue.

We roasted several marshmallows over the grill.

Then we dipped them in chocolate fondue and rolled the marshmallows in crushed graham crackers.

I also experimented with Nerds Candy. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet.

I brought out the Nerds candy to remind us of the good ol’ days. We also watched old cartoons.
