Daddy's Spa Day

The greatest gift I ever had came from God; I call him Dad!
It was a very HAPPY Father's Day.
We began with our usual Sunday Morning Family Breakfast..."Katie McMuffins" were served ~ one of Daddy's favorites. :) We then moved on to gifts.

We came up with something different this year. After 19 years of thinking up fun & cool gifts to buy my hubby, I realized that all he really cares about is quality time & physical touch (his two love languages). So...I came up with the idea of doing a "DADDY SPA DAY".

It was a HUGE HIT!

But, before we got to precious son Will presented his Dad with a PowerPoint Presentation...with pictures and everything! (Can you believe a 10 yr old can do that now?!)

It was priceless.

Off to our favorite Sunday activity...
Following church and a game of Golf with Will & his own Father, Greg returned home to be whisked away to the "Ruley Spa". He was adorned in a robe and an eye mask and led to a Lavendar Bubble Bath surrounded by candlelight. Enya playing in the background of course.
He was offered Norwegian water and an ice cold Coke (his fave), along with some chocolate and pistachio's. He was scrubbed clean by my lovely assistants, Mademoiselle Abby & Ella.

Daddy was then led to the second half of his Spa Day...the facial and full body massage.
Can't show pics of the massage as Daddio was in his skivvies. We'll just leave it at this and a little imagination. :)

DADDY SPA DAY was one of the Best Gifts ever! It was as much of a blessing to give as it was for him to receive. I loved watching our kids get so excited to pamper their Daddy! Even Owen got in on the massaging! (Okay, more like karate chopping, but hey!).

Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father! ~Lydia M. Child, Philothea: A Romance, 1836

Greg ~ You are the MOST AMAZING Father! Having you as a partner to raise our children is a dream come exude such patience, love and understanding. You are the best example of Christ that they have in their life...I know that their relationship with the Lord will thrive because of all the seeds that you have planted in their little hearts. We love & cherish you.

Oh Katie. You all really take the cake. That is so cute and I'm sure Greg ate that cake up!!!

Go will! What a great idea to make a powerpoint! I am going to have to pass that idea on to my girls!
