It's time to Dish It again with Amanda over at Serenity Now. This time we are talking about Dads and I've got plenty to say about mine!
~ Name your favorite TV or Movie Dad?
My favorite movie dad is Steve Martin from "Father of the Bride". That is probably my all time favorite movie! I just loved his relationship with his daughter!
And this house, ahhhh! I want to move in! Come on who doesn't love it?
George: Drive carefully. And don't forget to fasten your condom.
George: [shrieks in embarrassment] Seat belt! I meant, I meant seat belt.
~ What's the best thing about your dad?
I just love my Dad! He just brings a smile to my face every time I see him. After my mother passed away he decided to switch gears and do something entirely different career wise. He has worked in Urban Planning for more than 40 years and thought he would try his hand as a farmer. He specializes in Italian Heirloom vegetables and runs a booth at the farmer's market every Sunday morning and does special orders for the University of Nebraska Lincoln catering! He is just so wonderfully funny, giving, intelligent and energetic! He is the kind of guy that everybody loves!
I remember one night in the hospital when my mom was sick, I was sitting in the waiting room paying my bills of all things. My Dad walked in and sat down and started to cry and he said, "How am I going to live without her?" That was the first and only time I have seen my father cry! I was so lucky to be there and witness that vulnerable side and I think it has made us closer! It has been very tough on all of us since my mother passed but we have all gotten closer as a family. We realize how precious life is and not to take anything or anyone for granted!
This is my Father at the Farmer's Market. His booth is called ~ Caruso Rozzano Farms!
Isn't he a cutie?
~What's something you enjoyed doing with your dad when you were a child?
When I was in 9th grade I cleaned a Real Estate office building. I cleaned it every Wednesday night and Sunday morning. My Dad helped do the Sunday morning shift. He and I would go get donuts, coffee or hot chocolate and drive to the office. He would sit and read the newspaper or do work while I cleaned. He would always help take the garbage out to the dumpster with me. I have 2 sisters and a brother so it was nice just talking the two of us, we had a lot of fun!
My kids love their Papa!
~ If your husband is a father, what does he do that makes him a great dad?
My husband adores his kids! They bombard him right when he gets into the house and he stops whatever he is doing to listen to one of their many stories. He's a very hard worker and when he can he spends all his free time with them!
A day at the Omaha Zoo!
After a trip to Colorado just the boys, they brought back these silly mustaches! Our Family joke is that we like to look like Papa (my Dad)! He no longer has a mustache, but that is how the kids always remember him, and so do I!
Our family trip to South Dakota was a blast!
Jim is very creative and whenever the kids have a school project, he gets really involved. This was James' Valentine Box for third grade!
This was Jim's idea of the perfect Valentine Box for James. Jim had to outdo the frog from the year before and he got 1st place for most creative!
Despite little hiccups here and there, I am blessed to have the family I have and all the wonderful people in my life! Hope you liked your visit to my blog!
