Happy Father's Day to my Men!

~Happy Father's Day~

There are many men in my life
Ones who I love and admire very much

There are uncles, brothers and brothers-in-law

But the men I'll focus on here


My Father
Happy Father's Day Dad!
I love you

My sissy and I
with our Grandpa and Daddy

Me and my Dad & Mom

My parents with Baby Max,
the newest addition to a fast growing family

To my Dear Sweet Husband
Happy Father's Day Honey
I love you!

This is my favorite picture of Hubby and his boys!

It says it all...

A loving, totally involving, funny, happy Father
He changed as many diapers as I did
He cooks and does dishes
He was there every day in every little way
as the boys were growing up,
in their adult lives now,
and now with his grandchildren!

To my oldest Son
Happy Father's Day Son
I love you!

With Miss Sophia

and now with Baby Matz
(Sophie's pronounciation)

Our little Sophia
She LOOOOOOOOVES her Daddy too!

Our oldest son...
All I can say is,

~Like Father - Like Son~

What I wrote above about his Daddy,
our son is all the same things

And I'm so proud!

This image reminds me of our family on almost every trip we took!
The expressions just about perfectly matched ours

I love this image of a Dad and his girl

I found these images at


Also, I want to give credit where it's due,
and forgot to when I put up the last post...
The title of my post, "Roots, Shoots, Buckets and Boots"
came from a book by the same title
by Sharon Lovejoy


  1. Loved all the pictures, especially Max and his Dad, so cute!

  2. Oh Vicki I would say 'you are blessed indeed'! I love the old photos (don't take that the wrong way) hehe And the new ones. The men in your family are handsome guys!
    To answer your question...I got the hangers in shop in Utah a couple of years ago called Details. I love them and guess what?! They were eight dollars. I just hang stuff I find at yards sales and things I make from them.
    I hope your men all have a great day

  3. What a lovely and very special tribute Vicki!!! Absolutely beautiful and bringing tears to my eyes...What a lovely family you have...Happy Fathers Day to all the special men in your life...Love from Down Under, Dzintra♥x

  4. So much love in all those photos Vicki! That one of your hubby and boys is adorable! A happy little family.

    Hope you have a terrific week Vicki!

  5. Ohhhhhhhhh! You have a redheaded Granddaughter too! :-) Ours (16) is winging her way to spend 6 weeks in Japan, with a host family and going to school there and immersing herself in the Japanese language. Time flies!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. You like my hair. Yours looks lovely! But perhaps you have to do more working on it, than just wash and 'scrunch.' Like I finally can do. Finally! Never before! :-)

    Love to meet new friends in Pretty Blog Land. Leaving comments does that. :-)))

    Sophia is a little beauty with those russet curls :)
