my sweet ben

so, in honor of my wonderful husband and the father of my children, i wanted to post a tribute to ben on this father's day. here are some of my favorite pictures of ben...

ben has an awesome sense of humor. he's always doing silly things and making me laugh. and he makes a really hot "wolverine." :)



ben loves to play with his boys. he wants them to wrestle like he in did high school soooo bad. i can't say i'm too stoked for my children to be wrestlers, but they have so much fun doing it with their daddy. :)

ben is amazingly helpful around the house. i must admit, i have not cleaned our bathroom since we have been married. you're probably thinking, "eeww gross, their bathroom must be disgusting." but no, it is spic and span 24/7, thanks to ben. he really likes to make things shiny. i have to actually tell him that he can't do the dishes sometimes, so that he'll get other things done, like...eat his dinner, for instance. he's a dream.


ben treats me like a princess. i've had way more massages (compliments of my sweet hubby) than i deserve. thanks ben, for putting up with me and my brattiness. we have so much fun together. i always feel young when i'm around ben, because he's always thinking of silly things to do. he's like a kid on christmas morning, but all the time. what a great example of optimism to me. :)













here's some of my favorites of ben with the boys.




happy father's day sweetie! i love you more than words can express!

WHAT?!?!?! He cleans!? That's amazing. Hats off to you Ben. Whit, you're SO lucky! I'm not complaining, Ryan's great and helpful, but I didn't think there were really guys like Ben. That's awesome! I'm still in shock!

Are you kidding me??? Your husband sounds like a dream! And I AM complaining. (just kidding). Ok...maybe a little. I laughed so hard at his wolverine hair because Vic's hair does the exact same thing. Satan is always a good option for Halloween with that hair too.

it's true ladies...I have witnessed the insanity for myself, and I have to admit that I am jealous. Instead, I get a husband who leaves a trail of dirt right after I just mopped the floor, and one who has never cleaned a bathroom before in his life. Not that I don't love him so much, but there it is!!:) Happy fathers day ben!!

What a wonderful Father's Day post. By the way I loved your duet in church. And I second the bathroom thing. Richard does it for me because I just can't handle cleaning it.

That Ben is indeed a keeper. Shafer men are quality.

Happy Father's Day Ben!!

Hey there Whitney - I just saw your post on mine. What a small world! Molly is my sister-in-law, so we've got the sister-in-law connection here! Great post about Ben! I could even tell from the few times I saw you two that he is extremely optimistic and easy to be around! And, side note, congrats on your marathon! I aspire to be you one day! And you did it with your family - that is so fun!! Congrats!
