    My dad is truly my hero and always has been, he is a man of many trades...fisherman, mechanic, carpenter, cancer survivor, quad.bypass with valve replacement, he's always supported me in all my decisions good or bad to ..you name it he can do it and if he cant he will figure out a way to. I love him so much!

    With his job he isnt home all the time but when he is home the kids and i suck up every minute we can with him! He likes to stay busy so his latest projects have been taking the boys bunks (which he built 4 yrs ago) apart and building a drawer system for underneath them, a coat rack for me to use at craft fairs (and at home), and the latest was delivered to me yesterday...my new Sewing Table!!! I drew a rough pic a wk or 2 ago and told him if he needed a new project i would love one of those so within a couple days he had it half done he added a few things too!! It is completly PERFECT!!!! Merry early Christmas to me!!

    Just thought i would share with you all!

    I failed to mention that the opening wasleft in the front so the kids could sit and do what they wanted..My 7 yr old son has already claimed it as his sewing spot and asked his Grampie why there wasnt a hole for his sewing machine...lol!
