A Father and his daughter

I hope all the men out there had a wonderful Father's Day yesterday. Not sure if any men read my blog, but Happy Father's day to you if you do!
Nicole really out did herself for her Dad yesterday. Saturday we were still running around trying to figure out something to get him and came up empty handed. She didn't want to get him another pair of shorts or a tee shirt. So I said how about some of his favorite candy and she can take him out to lunch. So that's what we decided. I picked up the bag of peanut chews and gave them to her. I just expected her to wrap them, but what she did brought a smile to my heart. I had no idea she was going to do this. I went to bed Saturday night and on Sunday morning this is what her Dad woke up too. This was on our bedroom door as we walked out.


Then going down the hall......



There was one on each step going down, but it was too dark for a picture. This was at the bottom of the stairs lol






Then into the foyer...


This led into the kitchen where he had a personalized menu waiting for him, along with his Father's Day card. Inside the card she said she was taking him out to lunch, and that SHE was driving lol. I had to take a picture of the menu. She stayed up making this the night before. I have a hard time believing that we didn't hear a thing. Especially when she came into our room to put the sign on. Our door squeeks. Scary to think anyone could have come in! We were probably just snoring away. That would have scared anyone off anyway lol. So here's the menu.
She used packing tape to laminate it lol. Crinkly, but oh too cute! Definitely a keeper for my memory box.......






Then they went out to lunch and Nicole did drive. George said she did well. I was able to take a few shots of them when they got back.



And the final bow handing him his candy LOL.

Happy Father's Day George~~
I did work on my rug this weekend too. I only have the tongues in the corners to finish!!! I am sooo psyched. I will try and decide on how I will finish those up and I hope to have a final picture soon for you all to see!!
Enjoy your Monday........ Hope the rain has stopped for the majority of you. I know the weather has been quite icky. Not so bad here. We wer fortunate!
