I really don't want to get all sappy on you... well, maybe just this once!
I just want say what a blessing it is to have a husband that does not take his role as "daddy" lightly? This man cherishes his children immensely and understands what a task God has put before us as parents - to raise them to become God fearing adults.
As most of you know, Michael is currently deployed, and I know leaving the children was probably the hardest part of the "goodbye" process (not because he doesn't love/miss me, but because I won't forget him or grow taller or learn how to talk or lose my first tooth while he's away).
As a Christmas gift to the kids, he left me with these cute little things to wrap for them and have them open on Christmas day:
Michael recorded a different greeting in each one and they LOVE them!
And I love that they can hear Michael's voice any time they want, they don't have to wait for a phone call or video!
