Although Mother’s Day is typically more celebrated than Father’s Day, we wanted to make sure not to forget about our amazing fathers, dads, daddys, papas, etc. this month! Our fathers do so much for us our lives, usually the unappreciated things – pay the bills, supply the food, protect, discipline, etc. Sometimes it is difficult to show appreciation for these things that we just expect our fathers to do anyway.

When most hear the word icicles, the visions that come to mind are the water formations that hang from the roofs of buildings in winter. To others, just the mention of the word conjures up nightmares of the inexpensive foil tinsel icicles folks used to decorate their Christmas trees. You know the ones, they sparkled when the lights bounced off them, and they were so pretty, but even the vacuum cleaner couldn't get them off the floor. We would like to put new visions in your head when you hear the word icicles.
