Remembering My Dad

This post will be short and sweet.  I won't give much detail, but just state the horrible facts.  My dad went to be with our Lord just three days ago.  Sunday, April 27, 2014 was definitely the worst day of my life.  No one expects to ever get a phone call with such horrible news.  

My dad passed away unexpectedly due to a heart attack.  These last three days feel like they've taken forever.  It has not only been the worst week of my life, but the longest week too.  

I know it will get easier with time.  At least that is what I'm told.  I believe that.  No, I will NEVER forget him.  I will never forget how wonderful of a Pa he was to Laney and Max.  They already miss him so much.  They don't understand.  How can they?  I don't even understand.  

I'm heartbroken.  I'm tired.  I'm sad.  
But I will continue on because that is what he would want me to do.  

I love you so much, Dad.  You could always bring a smile to my face, whether it was a funny comment or just you walking in the door.  I love you and I already miss you so much.  Until we meet again....

Happy Easter!

The Reinhart Family had a wonderful Easter dressing up....

getting Easter baskets...

 spending time with family.....

 and hunting eggs.  

But the best part of Easter is celebrating the REAL reason for Easter!  
He has RISEN!  I love each year how the kids are understanding more and more about the holiday and why we celebrate it.  Yes, the other stuff is fun, but we need to remember the real reason of why we celebrate Easter!

Max is FOUR

Happy FOURTH Birthday Max Charles!!  Our little guy is super excited to be four years old!  He tells everyone that he's four and he's proud of it!  

I love how both of his hands in the above picture are showing four! :) 

We celebrated at home on the morning of his birthday before he and Laney headed out to school.  

Pancakes with sprinkles and presents....doesn't get any better than that in the morning!

His party was Alvin and the Chipmunks.  Theodore is still his favorite, so we featured him in the center!  Max has a Theodore stuffed animal that Mommy and Daddy gave him a couple years ago and he still sleeps with "Dadore" every night.  

After the birthday celebration, we took all of the kids to Monkey Joe's to burn off the cake and ice cream!!  

The kids loved running, playing, and bouncing until they were pooped!

Happy 4th Birthday to my handsome Max!  That smile brightens my day.  
We are so blessed to be his parents!post signature
