Happy Father's Day!

Happy YOUR DAY, Dads! I hope your day has been fantastic.

We here at chocri are very grateful for all our Dads as well (thanks, Dads! You rock!), and we want to share the love with our Father's Day contest - we asked you to nominate your Fathers via this blog, Facebook, Twitter and email. And without further ado, here are the Top 3 Nominations, in no particular order:

My husband is the best dad in the world to our almost two year old daughter. He laughs with her, plays with her, reads to her and does anything to make her happy. Right now he is deployed with the US Army for the next year and even still, when he calls he still makes our daughter smile and laugh on the phone. Daddy is her world, and she is his. He recorded himself on a DVD reading a book to her just so she can see him and still share story time from half way around the world. He really is the greatest daddy ever.

My husband is the best dad in the world because he put on a happy face, played and laughed with the kids during the most painful days after his back injury and subsequent surgery. He was unable to work for over a year because of the pain but the kids would have never known from seeing the way their dad played and laughed with them daily!

I am actually going a bit non-traditional here. My father wasn't present for a lot of my life, but there has always been one man that I could count on no matter what. My papau (grandfather on my mother's side) took me fishing, let me work out in his woodshop with him, and has always been with me. Because of him I have always known that whatever my dad might have done, there are wonderful men out in the world. His health has been declining lately, but he still manages to find the energy to smile and give me a hug whenever I visit.

Let us know below who you think should win - and we'll send the chocri Father's Day gift back their way! Voting begins today and lasts until Wednesday June 22nd at midnight. We are excited to see who will win, but in our eyes, all these Dads are winners already for having wonderful daughters and sons, wives and grandchildren that nominated them!!

    Thank you guys for picking my story for the finals! Since I entered the contest, my papau has passed away (on June 13th), so it is especially poignant to see this here.
