best daddy EVER

dear daddy-o!

it's us, trace car and baby lucas. we know father's day was a few days ago, but we've been wanting to tell you a few things. for starters, do you how much we love you? you are the best daddy ever!! you always keep us smiling and laughing... we love when you tickle us and get our goozle! we have so much fun when you are around! everyone says we look just like you and our names should be nate jr, but we like the names you and mama picked out for us better. trace and lucas are good, strong names! we love how you take care of us and mama. you work 10 hour days at bsco. we know you love your job but you are tired when you go home. but you don't let that stop you! when you get home, you help mama with dinner, you make time to play with us, you watch movies with us, (and countless hours of dora and diego, and we can't forget about hi 5!) you play swords with us, and we have all sorts of fun with our toys like the trucks, animals, and mister potato head! you bathe us and get us in our pj's, and then our favorite part is when you tuck us in for bed. we love when you read the cars book, and then when you rock us and we say our prayers. then you sing "you are my trace car." sometimes you forget and sing "you are my trace car" to baby lucas, but he likes it too! :) we feel so safe in your arms, with your hugs and kisses... we just love that feeling. we know you will always be here for us no matter what! you are so strong yet so gentle with us. you make us feel better when we are sick or when we get boo boos, which is all the time! sometimes you have to get mr. pop, but we know that you are just trying to teach us and discipline us like the bible says! lucas is too little for mr. pop right now, but soon you will have to start telling him no and using pop with him too! you are so good to us. we wonder how we are so blessed to have you as our daddy! we can't wait til we're a little older and we can really start doing fun stuff with you, like playing baseball and football and you can teach us everything you know! and you can teach us how to sing and also how to play the guitar. we want to be just like you daddy. we want to love jesus like you do, and we want to help lead others to him. we want to be a godly example like you are. your actions speak louder than your words, and we love that about you. we thank god for you all the time. and so does mama. she tells us we have the best daddy ever and she is right! when she is cranky and tired, you take over. you let her go get pedicures all the time. and you let her read in the bed while you take care of us when she needs a break. you do the dishes and laundry and cut grass on your off day, so she doesn't have to worry about it. we could not ask for a better daddy, because you are the best daddy ever! we hope you had a wonderful father's day, and we hope you know that everyday is so special when we are with you!!

we love you to the moon!
