Meet Neely's DadArticle posted on Friday, July, 16th, 2010 at 8:00 am
Jamie is the strong silent type. (And he is going to hate being the focus of this blog post.) He is an amazing husband and father. And if you are fortunate enough to be called his friend then you know there is no one more loyal, supportive, or funny than Jamie.
We were High-School sweethearts, went on our first date in 1990, were married on February 28, 1998, and still haven’t stopped laughing. Neely has his sense of humor (and his height!) She always say, “Don’t worry, Daddy can fix anything” and she’s right. It’s a good thing too because Neely can break anything. When Jamie grabs his tools to go to work – Neely is not far behind with her Handy Manny tool set. Date Night for them means finding the closest burger and then checking out the latest gadgets at Lowes.
Jamie can quote lines from every movie he’s ever seen, knows every song, artist, band and album title not categorized as “classical” and is a trivia King! Don’t even try to out-answer him. Ava has his love of music and ability to remember the details. He is already talking about where to take her to her first concert. (He refuses for “The Wiggles” to count.) When Ava was born, Jamie could almost hold her in the palm of his hand and now she holds him in hers.
Daddy’s little girls. They love to play dress-up. They are the princesses and he is always Prince Charming. Once Ava told me that when she grows up she is “going to marry Daddy”, but that she would still let me live with them. (Thanks, Ava!)
Jamie is a master of his grill, zero-turn John Deer, Ford Truck, and iTunes Account. So when a friend sent me a link to this video, I couldn’t help but laugh and include it here. It’s Jamie. He’s ours and we love him!
