Father's Day Gift Idea and The Man That Keeps It All Together

We had a busy Father's day weekend. Extended family on Saturday and just our family having a little barbecue to celebrate the man that makes it all happen around here. We tried hard to capture a selfie of our family and it as always, resulted in chaos and laughter.
Looking at this picture, can you imagine being him? That is a lot of women to live with but it doesn't faze him. He is the calm in the hormonal storm when needed and keeps me encouraged when I need it.
That is a lot of estrogen.


We had a birthday girl this week and Father's day so instead of spending money on a gift bag that you will just toss, we put the gifts in reusable buckets. A nice white one for the daughter that just moved out filled with home keeping supplies and gift cards and for the hubby a new car washing bucket in his favorite color. We filled his with lots of his favorite things and gifts cards as well.


A nap on Father's day is much earned but of course he had to have his two smallest girls included. These two puppies love their daddy. Can you tell?

I agree that your husband is a great guy for keeping up with all his girls - and not letting it faze him, either! My dad was in a household of "only" 3 women (me, my sister and my mom) and he used to go hide in the bathroom with his newspaper, lol.

You've got yourself a good husband there. That's a man with a lot of patience. My dad lived with 4 girls in the house and he has the patience of a saint. I once asked him about not having a boy and he said he wouldn't have had it any other way. My dad is the best!

Even the pups are girls! Too funny. But he is the king of his castle.

Love that pic of your husband napping with the pups! You have a great family and I can see by the big smile on his face that he loves being surrounded by all his girls.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

Happy Father's day to your Hubby and a happy Birthday to your daughter ...
I love the idea of the gifts being in a reusable bucket..... I often wrap gifts in tea towels instead of wrapping paper...
