Happy Father's Day/Happy Anniversary Coco&Kyle
Happy Father’s Day to all you Dads! I am so grateful for my Father, Robert Rittenhouse Houser. When I was a little girl he always seemed like a giant to me. I was scared of him because of his loud voice. Now I know just to not talk about religion or politics with him an we are fine. He has always been a hard worker to provide for our family sometimes 2 or 3 jobs at a time to make enough for us. He has many stories and the memory of dates and things that were going on in the world at the time, he is telling the story about. The biggest thing he taught me was to work hard and be honest with your fellow man.
Now I have married a man who works hard and is an honest man sometimes too honest. Alan is a great Father to our children. He loves the gospel and does his best to be worthy to have the Priesthood and use it. He is the best friend I could have. We have never really gotten in argument or fights we don’t like contention between us. Alan has used the spirit to guide us in teaching our children and helping them to make the right decisions. I am so glad he is my eternal companion. I love you AL!!!!!
Coco, Kyle and Talmage left yesterday and made it home safe. Kyle left his new motorcycle here so hopefully they will be coming back soon to get it and visit again. He he Talmage is so sweet. The smile and that giggle just made me want to squeeze him. He was probably glad not to see me first thing in the morning today.
My Saturday was spent catching up on house work and a little shopping with the kiddos for items for our new compost bin I am making and dinner for Alan for Father’s Day tonight. He requested Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches, fried cabbage and tomatoes. We have a giant cookie cake for him too. The girls made cards for his yesterday and they were so cute.Faiths is the green one, the bottom one is a gun. The other one that is blue with the mouse was done by Gabby. She said it is the mouse of love.
Today is also the one year Anniversary for Coco & Kyle. It is hard to believe that they have been married a year. So much has happened and so many changes in their lives. We love you two and may you have many more Happy Anniversaries in the eternities!
Today we are going to church and maybe to visit my Father depending on what Alan wants to do. On Mothers Day I just wanted to stay at home. What a party pooper I am.
The first part of this week will be busy getting Dallas ready to go on our Stake Pioneer Trek. He will be gone from June 18th to the 21st. Then E'lyse will be going to girls camp from the 25th to the 28th. Tomorrow will be running errands and getting the items needed for these 2 things. I am also starting to work on back to school things. So for now I should go feed the stragglers who just got up breakfast. Talk to you later. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
