Happy Father's Day

Alex got three father's day this year, American, Brazilian and Australian... hahahaha
Anyway, even though I did this for him for the first one, and we had a nice lunch for the second one, I thought the third one would be a good excuse to tell him how much I appreciate what he does for the kids :)

I created the layout inspired by this week’s challenge at the hawtest blog there is. The challenge is to write a letter to a loved one, perfect timing right?

Journaling
I wanted to let you know how happy I am to have you as the father of our children. Hopefully you will know by now how much I love you, but I think you don't know how much I appreciate everything you do for the kids, and how proud I am of you. You are the perfect dad. Sure, you don't give them attention all the time; after all, you need to work and some time for yourself too. But you sure make up for the lost time whenever you can. I have never seen such magic between father and son that you have with these kids. You can make them giggle just looking at them. You have this supernatural power of soothing them and putting them to sleep (which I can't). You can be strong when needed but you also melt when they ask the right questions. You take the time to care for them, take them out to have fun, play games, just... make them happy. You have a special bond with them, which will only grow stronger. You are an amazing father. Thank you for always being there for us.
Love you always, the mother of your children, your wife, Michelle

Great layout. When is Australian mother's day? My husband kind of forgot the American one, so it would be nice to give him a second chance.
