I Almost Missed Fathers Day

Somehow I wound up thinking Fathers Day was a week later then it actually was, so when Saturday rolled around and I realized it was happening the next day. I kicked into gear. We are on a really tight budget so I wanted to do something that didn't cost anything, but yet said "I love you Daddy."

So here is what we came up with...

Hope loves to paint so she painted him a rock for his desk at work... She cracks me up because she likes to repaint things over and over, so the color is constantly changing... So eventually I stopped her and we let it dry...

She put stickers on it. Then I glued felt on the bottom. I didn't want it to scratch his desk at work.

Every year since Hope was born I have made a print of her foot for Daddy on Father's day... Her foot is getting to be so big. I can't believe how much she has grown.

We baked a brownie... The little chef really believes in sprinkles.

I took pictures of the process and then made a single photo collage at our Kodak Kiosk. (Total cost of picture 32 cents)

All in all, it turned out perfect... It just made me realize how it is the thought that counts...

What a sweet idea to make the little footprint for father's day! I love that.

The collage is also adorable, I bet daddy loved it!

Happy day (and thanks so much for your comment on my post at Blissfully Domestic! I appreciate it!)
