With Father's Day coming up in a few weeks, I've been busy scouring the internet for ideas of what we can do for the best daddy I know- my hubs- Derek. He seriously is such an amazing father to our 3 beasties and I love that we can honor him on this day. Having a 6 year, 4 year, and 3 month old, I'm trying to incorporate them all in this years gift. I really try and have them make something meaningful for dad rather then go out and buy him something expensive and say it's from the kids. Who are we kidding? I got a bike for mother's day (yee-haw!) but the girls stole my heart with their hand-made cards and a sweet silhouette drawing of Olivia. Here are some things I'm hoping to get made for the big day (along with the regular cards):

#1 Dad Trophy - kinda cheesy but super sweet

Dad photo - LOVE this! Might switch it up a bit but I love the idea!


  1. Each year, I do either do a hand print collage or craft of some sort, or a foot print craft (alternate every other year). One year, it was a quilted pillow, the next was a quilted wall hanging, another year was garden stones. Last year was a photo collage with cut-out handprints. They are Scott's favorite gifts. I wish my camera wasn't broken (and they weren't all packed), or I would take pics and email them to you. This year, I am going to take a picture (if I find that camera) of the kids with their feet painted and in the "front" of the shot. I am going to mount it in a frame with the foot prints (in the colors to match) all around the framing mat.
