My Dad

This weekend my Dad will be 70 years old. It is just so hard for me accept that my Dad will be 70. I have been thinking a lot the past few days about my Dad. Trust me, he isn’t perfect, but I have to admit he has been a great dad. He has told both my sister and I that he doesn’t want a gift for his birthday this year. I have been working on a letter to give him letting him know how much I appreciate all the things he has done. It has made me a little weepy the past few days. I can’t imagine life without either of my parents. I depend on them for so much.
Any ideas on anything else I can do for my Dad’s birthday to let him know how much I appreciate and love him?

do you have enough pictures to put together an album for him? perhaps one of him throughout his life or family photos of him with you and/or your sister.

or, you could go for corny as hell and do one of those handprint plaques that kids always make for their parents with a construction paper #1 dad 'ribbon' and crown for him to wear for the day.

bet you the best thing will be the letter though. that's a great idea. :)

Thanks for the ideas. I think I do have enough pictures for the album. Maybe the pictures and the letter?

sounds like one hell of a game plan. :)
