Happy Birthday, Dad!

67 years young... My dad, (a.k.a. "Poppy")

Some little tid bits about Dad:
He loves cheeseburgers and fish sandwiches, and he "invented" the Dagwood sandwich in our household when I was a very little girl.
He adores all of his grandchildren.
His favorite candy bar is a Kit Kat and he loves soft serve ice cream (he sticks with plain old chocolate or vanilla).
He has his own language, as in he makes up his own words. Like: bretzle (pretzel), strapless strollers (penny loafers), all da car ten (according to), rag picker (recycler) and so on... words like this keep my brothers and I rolling (for years!).
Dad would give you the shirt off his back, his heart is so big it could very well pop out of his chest.
I'm his only daughter and he spoils me! ;)
I LOVE YOU, DAD! Happy Birthday!
and the card I made him...Not only is it my dad's 67th birthday, it's also my mom and dad's 41st wedding anniversary!

41 years is a L O N G time people, and my parents have a super-glue strong marriage. Happy Anniversary! I love you both.


  1. Amanda!! That is such a sweet post!! you are one lucky girl to have such a great dad and a wonderful mom!!!!

  2. I know what you mena about 41 being a long time! My parents will be at 31 years this year. My maternal grandparents 55 years this year. Paternal grandparents would have hit 56 years this year (My grandpa passed a few months ago.) and My great aunt and Uncle who are like grandparents were one month shy from 50 years when he passed Jan 31st. I told Dustin when we got married- You better be sure b/c I have big shoes to fill! :)

    So glad that there are such good people like your fam and mine to admire :)

  3. What a great birthday tribute to Dad and how sweet to also compliment us on our anniversary. Don't you think I was smart to set the wedding date on his birthday so he would never forget?? (Tee hee)

  4. What an absolutely lovely card you've made for your dad! I love it's sweet simplicity!
