Christmas 2012 241

Dear Dad,

This face you’ve taken to using ever since I met handsome is my favorite. It’s clearly your “You’re taking a picture of me so I’ll smile” face. And I like it. Thanks for that.

It reminds me of the time I sat on you when I was a kid and pointed out why you got all of your wrinkles on your face. Most of the reasons were smiling, or something farm related like, “This line is from thinking so hard about how to keep the cows in the barn.”

Thanks for that.

For smiling like a big goof ball and reminding me that lines like that make you beautiful and tell a story of your life.

You’re a pretty cool dad and all.
