~Our Father's Day~

~Phillip and the kids the night he was leaving to go to the airport to fly to Argentina, June 14th, 2010!~
~Phillip and I before he left.~
Thank the Lord God brought Phillip safely back to us on Tuesday June 22nd, 2010! God helped in Argentina and gave him some good contacts. He even preached in a church in Argentina on Sunday night. =)
~Since he wasn't here on Father's day, we celebrated yesterday after he got home. Phillip took this picture of us on Tuesday, June 22nd, as we were finishing the salad for our Father's day meal for him.~
~We decided to use a "TIE" theme. We tied all of our cloth napkins into TIES, and Kimberly and I made a TIE cake.~
~Here's a close-up picture of our TIE cake. We used the left over yellow and black icing from Noah's bus cake last week. =) The little "dots" are mini choc. chips. We were nearly "fit to be TIED" while putting this icing on the cake...but God helped us. =D~
~Kimberly and Sarah hung balloons that said, "Happy Father's Day." Every other balloon had a TIE drawn on it. The girls felt "all TIED up in knots" by the time they tied all of these balloons, and then tied them to this string. =)~
~Phillip LOVES my apple pie, so I made him one for Father's day. We put a TIE on top of the pie and used raisins for the "pocka dots."
~Here's a close-up of our TIE napkins and Kimberly made TIE place cards.~
~Kimberly made the cute little "shirt and TIE" gift bag on the left. And she made the TIE card beside it too.~
~Sarah made this funny card by using a real picture of Phillip's head and then drawing a suit and TIE for him. We thought it was hilarious.~
~Phillip fixin' to enjoy his apple pie ala mode. We were really happy with how the Lord helped us to "TIE everything together." =)~
We are very HAPPY to have Phillip home! Thank you for your prayers for him and for us.

All your tie decor just tie-red me out! :-) Just kidding, the only thing I could think of to go with your theme. LOL Very cute & Fun! I'm sure Daddy really enjoyed the special treatment.

Man! I almost wished you would have a Father's Day celebration for me too, after seeing what all you did for Phillip! (Phillip must have went ahead and relaxed and thought, "I really AM special". after all the shenanigans your family put on for him.) (Smile. I'm just teasing.)
I am serious about this, though... I actually was afraid that you had put chocolate chips on Phillip's apple pie! You'll never know how relieved I was when you explained that those were raisins. Smile. I laughed aloud when I saw Sarah's card that she made for her daddy. It looked so funny with Phillip's head on his homemade body. How on earth could we have as much fun, if we didn't have our Sarah?! She is adorable and has made my life happy since Day One.
You come up with the neatest ideas to celebrate special occasions for your loved ones, Heather!
Love,
Mom D

I love your tie theme...themes are one of my favorite things to do. I will have to keep that one in the back of my mind for next year!

How creative you are. You had to get that talent from your Daddy! Really I think that it is probably not you but the two Granddaughters!;-) I wonder where Elijah was in the preparation time? Let me guess, I think for good reason that you had him napping! The napkins ties are classic and I will have to learn from my daughter and remember that. Phillip is a special Daddy and I know he felt the love of his family. I love you all, Moma
