The kids and I were so happy that they "picked Daddy" that we had to do a little celebrating for him! We had some stuff ready for him when he came home from work that day!
The kids made a banner for him and wanted it hung in clear view from the front door. Mason wrote the blue letters, Owen wrote the red letters. Then they each added some special drawings. (Owen is in yellow)
Then we patiently waited by the window (the room was pitch black but the flash makes it look lit) and watched for Daddy's car. They really wanted to be standing on their chairs under the banner to shout "CONGRATULATIONS DADDY" when he came through the door. They were SO excited!
Here's Daddy coming in the door to his surprise!
We also got Daddy a cookie cake, which the kids could hardly wait to eat until after dinner (which we celebrated at Grimaldi's Pizza...YUM)! Red and blue icing of course...
Here is a proud Daddy and two proud little boys! I don't think the kids know what Daddy "won" but they were sure proud of their sign, their cake, and the card they picked out.
Happiness all around!
Here are the kids giving Daddy his card. We just so happened to find a "We Will Rock You" card...which just so happens to be one of their favorite "rock and roll" songs right now. (They really like the "boom-boom-clap" action, and you can catch Owen doing it at the end of the video).
