I can say that I honestly tried to take some serious photos of my Dad, (AKA Grampie) but HE chose NOT to co-operate, so…I had to use what I could find. Anyone who knows my Dad, will know that he is not known for his co-operative nature. His favorite word is NO…no matter what the question. He loves to be as difficult as he possibly can, to get under all of our skin!
Since he didn’t co-operate, I, as his daughter, was left with NO choice. I had to take matters into my own hands and just simply work with what I could find.
If you are new to Tootsie Time, I would like to introduce you to my Dad. There are many sides to Grampie…
…his public side…(during which you know he is probably thinking of something silly to do to Grammie or one of us.)
For as long as I can remember, I have always been a Daddy’s girl. To me, my Dad could build, fix or do ANYTHING! He was so many things to me, and now he is those things to my kids.
…he’s magical and imaginative …(love the bling)
…he’s serious, and sometimes a little cranky.
he’s a husband…
…who sometimes ends up in the dog house…
…he’s a jack of all trades…(I come by my love of tools honestly!) This photo kind of makes me wonder what he was thinking…he almost looks surprised!
He’s a thorough mechanic…he gets right into his work…(literally)
He’s an outdoor-sy kind of guy. He loves the farm…and has put his heart into making it a beautiful place to live.
He has his Amish side…(I think maybe his hat is a little tight)….
…there! That’s better! hahahahaha! He's sexy and he "gnomes" it! hahaha
…there is some family resemblance. uh huh!
He is the coolest Grampie any kid could ever want.
My kids adore him…and my son wants to be like him when he grows up…I will say that kind of makes me nervous…hahaha!
In which all things abound
Showing care and passion
And love to all around
I shall treasure all the sleepless nights
And sacrifices made
All because you loved me
Thru the problems that I gave
Doing little special things
All for me
Your eyes they tell the story
When you speak of me
Your hands that once were strong and firm
Now softened with the age
But you're still my daddy
And never would I trade
Smiles and hugs and kisses
As I sat there on your knee
From childhood to the woman
Who before you
Now you see
I have locked away those precious times
They are mine
For me to see
I keep them all within my heart
Take them everywhere with me
My love for you
Is just as strong
As the one when I was three
And I know this kind of special bond
Was meant for you and me
I hope that you will see it now
You're in my thoughts each day
I'm so glad you are my daddy
I hope you all have a great day honoring your Dads...
Until Next Time…
