Father's Day - From Katarina

Baby Katarina and Thomas
This is one of my favorite pictures of Thomas and Katarina when she was a baby. 

Instead of telling you all the things Thomas does that make him a wonderful dad, I am going to let Katarina take over the blog for the day and share a letter she wrote for her dad.

Father's Day - From Katarina....

You are cool, because if you have hair gel, you can turn your hair into a mowhawk.

I like it when you flip me over (when I lean on your back and you are sitting down) and I like that you land me on the bed and don't drop me on the floor. 

I love you.

I like that you do a lot of silly things that make me laugh hysterically.

Sometimes when we sit in the car while mom checks our mail, we make plans to sing a funny song when she comes out...and we sing it way too much and way too loud. 

When we stop at a gas station, you get a fruit smoothie juice for me, because you know they are my favorite.

I like it when I get to go to work and help you. 

And last but not least, I like it when I always beat you at wrestling and when we call each other silly names like Koopie-Wah and Koopie-Doodle.

Happy Father's Day to the best dad in the universe!!!!

I love you,
Katarina Hope =)

Katarina and Thomas

Happy Father's Day, Thomas! 
Thank you for being such a wonderful dad to our little girl. 


  1. Who needs a lot of money or "stuff" when your child gets a lot of love and laughter? Who needs to have the perfect job when your child loves to work wherever you work? Who needs to do everything perfect when a child can sing too loud and too long and wrestle and win?

    When a child knows she is loved and is given the gift of laughter, she is rich.

  2. AWESOME letter!!

    Hooray for daughter/daddy love!!!

  3. LOVE this.. and the fact that it is the little stuff she loves about being with him..

  4. Awwww this is precious! Happy Fathers Day, Thomas!

  5. OMG, now I am crying!

    The love of a daughter for her dad is truly a beautiful thing! How blessed you are, Tracie, how blessed you are!


  6. That was the cutest letter ever. Soooooo sweet!

  7. Katarina, This is perfect! Your dad must be so proud. What a wonderful present you've given to him today. I enjoyed reading your letter, so thanks for sharing :)

  8. My daughter feels the same way about her dad. It is a beautiful thing to see and to be a part of. Thank you for sharing. This was a light in my day of darkness as was your comment on my blog earlier today. Thank you.

  9. What a sweet letter from your daughter to her dad. Perfect for Father's Day.

  10. This has to be one of the sweetest, most heart felt things I have ever read! Isn't it amazing what our children love the most about us!? Too cool!

  11. That was the best! Pure Father's Day poetry.

  12. What a wonderful tribute, something her daddy will have forever.

    And wow, as my old southern neighbor would say, are you sure he didn't spit her out? They are spitting images, aren't they?

    It's so wonderful to have amazing husbands who are good dads. Congratulations on having a good one.
