{Father's Day}

Sir Thomas is wonderful and deserved a really special day.  I married so well and am in LOVE!
Together, we've created a family and our kids really know how to do Father's Day!
I must say that my children's idea of "special" may not be the norm across the country.  Happily, it was a day full of love . . . and laughs.

Who wouldn't want to celebrate Father's Day at our house???  Seriously?
{Sir Thomas is in there . . . well, under there}

It's just like the good old days when they were little and wanted to climb all over him . . . except now they're BIG.

Landon was the Jester Presenter of the Gifts and I was laughing so hard I could barely take the pictures.   Keeping things simple was my first mistake.  Landon was so considerate.  He didn't want to ruin the surprise by letting his dad see through the tissue paper wrapping. 

I was clueless on this one.  I had no idea why Landon was covering his eyes . . .

. . . until we all discovered that the bag was empty!  
Newest note to self: 
Create Family Rule #2,377,518 which states "Tell children not to remove gifts from any and all gift packaging before giving gift to recipient."

Landon cracks me up!  First, he thinks of the best pranks, such as removing the gift from the bag and then giving the bag empty.  Then, laughing at his own great prank.

As the night progressed, the jesters continued to jester!  India was putting the finishing touches on her prop for Girl's Camp Adventure Night.  As soon as I picked up the camera Keaton and Landon jumped in!  I NEVER think that fast!  It's scary that they think so alike.  Precious India is just used to the insanity and didn't even bother to look up.

India really is amazing in the crafty-sewing department.  She's dressing up as a mom at Girl's Camp for their Adventure Night and she needed a few props.  She just got her little self busy and helped herself.  She created and sewed a baby sling without any help . . .

. . . along with a diaper bag.  She didn't even have a pattern!  She's just talented genius!

 All fun parties must come to an end.  Nothing ends a fun party faster than a good-bye.  Elder Reed was leaving for a new area Monday morning.  We'll miss him!
