Father's Day 2012.

For Father's Day, we ended up making Freddy a cute little craft. Nathan was a great helper. He couldn't wait to get his hands on that paint. And mod podge. And glue. And paper. And ribbon. 
"Can I help, Mommy? Can I help??"
And it took a lot for me to let go of the reins ever so slightly. But yes. He did help, with every single step. Until he got bored and painted superheroes on a scratch paper instead.
And here's how it turned out! :) Pretty cute, right?  (It was based on an idea that I saw here.)
We also made him a candy bouquet, too.  This was probably the most difficult part for Nathan. You mean we buy them and have them, but we can't eat them??? That's a tough concept for any two year old.
As you can see, he was pretty thrilled when after church on Father's Day when we were going to surprise Papi with his presents. 

Happy Father's Day to Freddy (a little late in blogging)! I always knew that he would do a great job as a father, but he always surprises me with just how good he is at it! :) He has a lot to balance on his plate with work, school, church, and family, and somehow he always finds time to play with Nathan and keep his family as his first priority.  Just the other day I overheard Nathan and Freddy playing basketball together, down in the living room. Just listening to them, you can hear the bond that they share together, and father and son. Freddy's so full of love for Nathan, constantly praising him, teaching him, and showing that he cares. I'm so grateful for good fathers-- and Freddy's a perfect example! :)
