Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Our First Father's Day Celebration

Our First Father's Day Celebration

Today is my husband's first Father's Day.  Alyssa and I made this little collage for him and framed it in a fram that says, "Me and My Daddy."  She also got him a Pebbles and Fred card that says, "My Daddy Rocks!"  She picked it out herself.

We made him pancakes for lunch and they were awesome.  We didn't do them for breakfast because someone decided to wake up at 5:15am and not go back to sleep so her mommy was very tired.

Dinner will consist of smoked Brisket at my parents' followed by some homemade pie!

Here's to many more Father's Days to come, Mike!

It sounds like a great day for your husband!  I'm sure he appreciated your thoughtfulness.  Thanks for sharing!  :)

Happy "first" Father's Day to your family Donna. Alyssa is a very lucky little girl to have you both with all your love.

Donna and Mike, Happy (first) Father's Day (and a belated Happy (first) Mother's Day, too). I've had several, and I hope you're enjoying yours.

Loreena, I love Maggianos!!

Debi, Thanks, I hope so.  That picture was hard to do!

Patrick, Thank you, you too.

Gary, Thank you, that's sweet!

Steve, Thank you.  I had my facial last week that Mike got me.  I'm not into all that, but it made me take an hour to just not do anything... though I kept looking around for a clock.

Hope you had a great Father's Day and hopefully took lots of photographs.

Wow... Alyssa is very talented for her age!  And her motor skills must be exceptional to have made that collage and flip pancakes.

Seriously, glad to hear that you all had such a nice 1st Fathers Day!

Congrat's to you and Mike on his first Daddy's Day!  Ive had many...and they get better and better!  (My dad once told me -- "Any jerk with a sperm count can become a father...It takes a man to be a dad!"  I prefer to call it Daddy's Day!)

She is so cute Donna!  Seems like just yesterday when we were receiving the pregnancy updates!  She looks like such a happy lil camper!
