{Daddy's Day}

we sure do love our daddy
hopefully we shower him with that love everyday
not just on the day

this year dave's special day began on the sofa where he spent a leisurely morning catching up on DVR'ed episodes of Diners Drive-ins and Dives
there was a "rapid-fire hand-delivered-so-speedy it blurred the photo" homemade breakfast
of course

sometimes it's hard to tell who is more excited about the gifts around here
the giver or the getter??:)

we were most proud of the daddy love book we made this year
i first saw the idea in Real Simple Magazine
it was for mother's day, but we adapt well :)
i started with a blank, hardbound book we got at michaels
we put in all the saved love notes and art work the girls had made for dave through the years
i'm not a big saver when it comes to most things
but i can't part with any of this kind of lovely homemade goodness
it was so amazing to look at 9 years of daddy love
to see all the memories
the love
the growth
right there in one place
what a keepsake this is going to be
{i bought a blank book to put my things in too...is that bad?!?!:) }

here is a quick sneak peek inside

all that love took up quite a few pages
but there are lots and lots of blank pages waiting to be filled
can't wait to watch this book grow

needless to say, dave loved it!

to the greatest daddy in the world....we love you!!!!
today and every day

happy daddy's day to my sweet daddy too
we love you poppy!

  1. I saw this in my reader, but then couldn't find it when I clicked on your blog...then I saw you dated it back to Father's Day. Great idea!

    I LOVE the gift you gave him. What a wonderful idea, and I can only imagine how much he loved it. The photos of his special day are wonderful.

    I hope you have a great week!
