Daddy's Helpers

I love to watch Brazos and Sandy interact with their daddy.  Watching Matt with the kids just makes me fall in love with him all over again.

Actually, the first year we started dating {14 years ago!} I can remember Matt playing with my cousin Bailee, who was 4 at the time, and watching him play with her just made my heart fall for him.  Bailee is now 18 and a senior in high school!

This past year my grandpa passed down one of his antique tractors to our little family.  My grandpa did some riggin' on this tractor and added an extra seat and steering wheel.  Brazos has loved this addition because he can work right along side his daddy.  I'm sure this tractor will provide Matt and Brazos with many years of memories.

My husband is amazing and can do just about any kind of handy work that needs to be done.  I really hope that Brazos learns handy man skills from Matt and I am definitely going to encourage Sandy to find a husband that is good at fixing things.

Matt wanted to relevel our yard because he wasn't pleased with how he did it the first time several years ago.  He needed a tool to use behind the tractor, but he wasn't pleased with the condition of the tool, so he took it apart and fixed it. {He is a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to his outside work.}  Sandy saw all the little nuts and bolts that he left lying on the ground and made a bee-line to pick them up.  She quickly realized what her daddy was doing with the bolts and began helping him.  Who knows....maybe she'll be handy herself!

 After the tractor rake was put back together, Matt was missing four bolts, so who knows where Sandy decided to hide her new toys.

  1. This is so sweet!! And I know exactly what you mean - when Kyle and I were dating in high school I saw the way he got down on the floor and played with my cousin, Tristan, who was about 4 at the time (and now is a junior in high school, I think). THAT'S the way to this woman's heart too!! :)


Tell me what's on your mind!
