How sweet is this...

Before Dale left he recorded himself reading books so that the kids could read with him at night.
Ben loves watching his daddy read to him.
When I put the DVD in he instantly calms down and reverently listens to his Dad.
Ben has the same book that his Dad is reading so he can fallow along.
It is so sweet because he reads right a long and will say good job Daddy as if he was there.
On a side note It's this little monsters Birthday today , But we aren't telling him.
The reason why because Daddy will be home in just a week. Yep thats right a week from today.
So we decided to tell Ben his birthday is when Daddy gets home.
If you are local you have to keep it hush hush that Dale is coming home on thursday because I told them it was Friday
We have a fun surprise in store for them..
Time is flying by so until Dale is home we can hardly wait.

I love these pictures of your husband reading the book. It means so much to the kids to have that when a family member is serving and is away.

It will be a nice forever keepsake.
Only a few days left.
