Disneyland Autographs with Daddy! And a Blog Train

These Disneyland autograph pages are a sweet little tribute to my hubby - the best Daddy ever!
Saturday is his birthday - our daughter Chloee's is the next day.  She should be turning 5 years old.  What a way to ruin his birthday for the rest of his life.  This year we have to do Chloee's birthday on the weekend so family can come up to her grave for her memorial birthday party and that means my hubby will spend his birthday doing his daughter's birthday memorial.  I feel so bad for him, but he just says to me, "The kids are more important than me" anytime I bring it up.
He truly is the best Dad ever.  He held my daughters while they were sick and gave Bree shots when her seizures wouldn't stop.  He was there when we buried them, closed the caskets, helped me plan funerals, picked out and carried the caskets, helped design the headstones, decorated with countless grave decorations and did some of the hard things that I just couldn't do.  He is my sweetheart and the love of my life and the person who told me that I needed to choose to live again after Bree died.
He designed special tattoos to get on his heart in memory of our daughters.

And that's not even any of the things he does for our living son! 
My hubby and son do everything together :)  From playing soccer to making crafts to playing PlayStation - he is my son's hero and idol.  It doesn't matter what it is, he's there.  From waking up for a 9am soccer game (he works nights), to little things like teaching him to tie his shoes or teaching him his phone number and doing homework with him.  Things like at Disneyland, when my son is always too shy to go up to the characters, he's always there for him.
These pages are a tribute to that small act - but it is just one tiny example of what an amazing Father he is :)

Getting autographs has never been an easy thing for you!  You are such a shy boy and even though you love the characters, it is sooo hard to go up and ask for an autograph!  But lucky for you, you have a Daddy who will do anything for you. He always goes up and helps you.  That makes all the difference.  It's just what you need to go meet those characters!  And Mom is always there to get the whole thing on camera!  You are so lucky to have such an amazing Dad.  He really would do anything for you!  I hope you always turn to him for the help that you need!
