Happy Father's Day!!! (my Mr. B and our three)

Praying that all have a blessed Father's Day! this day and every day!
Here are some photos of our "Daddies" (hmmm, that doesnt look right spelled that way, but it is. Funny, how that sometimes happens with other words too...does that happen to you?)
I would have loved to have done a slide show of photos, but havent conquered that yet! so did this on Photoshop all day and night, yesterday... I know for some, it might have taken two snaps :o)
Mr. B was and is the most handsomest daddy :o) He was an Air Force fireman when we met. We lived in Holloman AFB, NM, where "theluckiestmrs" was born. He loves the Lord with all his heart and he loves our three to pieces!!! I am so thankful for having such a loving, strong, handsome, caring, Godly man for a husband and father of our "babies".

He has always provided for us. He has an amazing voice and is musically talented (our kids were abel to get those genes from him :o) He was a postal worker, weight trainer, back to postal work and then went into the Army to fly helicopters.

While in Alabama, where "little miss" was born, he graduated from the Army helicopter flight school as a warrant officer, to fly Blackhawk helicopters. Our first assignment was to Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, where our son "heartbreaker" was born (he would be the 5th generation born in Hawaii...I thought that was pretty neat). While there, he was deployed to fly training missions and real-world missions like relief in Bangladesh when so many perished from a major typhoon.

After Hawaii, it was back to Ft Rucker, Alabama. Then two years in Oklahoma, where he went to bible school. And then it was back to Alabama, where he went back in the Army cuz they were short pilots. This time he trained to fly the Apache. He was assigned to Fort Campbell, KY-home of the 101st Airborne - whoo ah (supposed to sound like how the Army soldiers yell).

In 2004, after 6 years at Ft Campbell, we were brought to where we are now, in coastal Georgia. Mr. B has been such an anchor and support for me and our whole family. A month after moving here, my mom passed away suddenly. It was so hard and seemed more so with living so far away from our families. And then in Feb of 2005, our son was diagnosed with Burkitt's-like B Cell lymphoma, as a 14yr old high school freshman. (In one photo, you can see Mr. B shaved his hair when our son lost his. Both "boys" actually loved the feel of their bald heads haha. ...although, as you can see in the other photo, after treatments were done, "heartbreaker" grew out the most beautiful curly hair! He was growing it to donate to Locks of Love.) *Our son is healed and doing great-he is a Sophomore now in college*

Mr. B retired 3 years ago from the Army, but oversees safety at the airfields here... definitely the right position...he is always aware of every.thing. and is Mr. Safety!

So, in whatever situation or challenges, I can not say enough how blessed, blessed, blessed our family is to have Mr. B as my husband and as our kids' daddy!
