MY DAD...



Thank you Dad for being such a great, Dad and Grandpa!  On Saturday Nick and I went out to a concert and knowing it was going to be late when we got home...and Sunday morning Nick had a song practice with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir....OOhhh Ahh..(so cool), and I had to teach our Primary Sharing Time at the exact same time....We needed some help!  With both of us on our "A" game, we barely make it through a normal Sunday, with our little tribe, so without Nick and two classes to teach, I needed some serious back up.... and with out a hesitation, my Dad volunteered for the job.

He spent the night with us, he took the kids shopping, on a bike ride to the park, got them fed and to bed, made home made pancakes in the morning, watched cartoons, washed dishes bathed, dressed, and brushed them and then....stayed and baked bread, and let me choose whatever I wanted for lunch and it was, of course amazing.

Those of you who know our family, know, to see my Dad (and my Brother) cooking, is common (and I have to give props to my Husband too..he makes one thing but that one thing is "The World's Best French Toast EVERY SUNDAY!) and it's absolutely the best food..ever.. EVER.. everrrr...and the poor men who marry themselves a  Tohara Girl....bettah know how to cook or be really patient, cause the men in our family are genetically gifted with cooking...and the girls......not so much.  Seriously "we been spoiled" our whole life with an amazing chef as a Father. (hey...it's only taken me 5 years to step it up....RIGHT?...ppsssst,.. Someone vouch for me...anyone??)

Thanks again Dad, for you constant, loving service you always offer my family, especially my children.  I LOVE YOU!  CHECK OUT THAT PERFECT Portuguese sweet bread...why don't cha!

I think the mothers in Kohala just knew how to raise really good sons because my dad is exactly the same way!! He's always cooked, dishes, great gardener etc.., and when I wanted my hair braided every night so it'd be wavy for middle school the next day he ALWAYS did it for me! Man, maybe I'd better move my family to Kohala, then again Carl is the same, he's a millions time better then me at cooking and is always willing to do it! Gotta love great husbands, and it doesn't hurt when they're extra good-looking too huh?! haha
