A fun and easy Father's Day for the Waith-Mairs
For Father's day this year we decided to make something for daddy rather then buy a gift. The girls and I went out to the store and went shopping for chocolate bars, chewing gum and candy bars! I had found a fantastic idea thanks to another wonderful blog that I love!
We made a fun card out of candy! I knew Travis was on a diet so I did feel really guilty for doing this at first, but knew how much he loved a fun and cheesy gift, so I couldn't resist! The girls and I got to work. It took us a good while to set everything out right, but here is the result...
Instead of a large piece of card ( like the original) I had found an old UPS package that looked like a big card, so as an added bonus this one could fold up! The girls drew an awesome picture and attached it to the front and then all we needed was the candy, a marker and some double sided tape.
|(As you can see we couldn't find a "now and later" so replaced it with his fav candy bar "Reeses" and just wrote now and later on it LOL).|
The kids rushed down the morning of Father's day and gave him his home made gift! Both Travis and the kids where excited to open it! .... and when he did boy was he surprised!!! (YAY SUCCESS!!!) The girls and him read along with him and giggled throughout!
Travis then got his second gift (which I don't have a picture of so here is a substitute from another blog) it reads ..."World's Best POP" and inside was some root beer (Soda pop), Pop tarts, pop corn and some lollie pops.
The third gift was from me and was also edible (or drinkable) which was a mountain dew saying "Thank you for everything you dew"
|(this is another bloggers work because i forgot to take a picture again!)|
Travis loved his homemade gifts and was not expecting anything (since he had already gotten his "Father's day" gift a week before). He was one happy daddy to get all three!
LATER ON THAT SAME DAY...
Travis got his fav snack.... homemade salsa and chips!
And for dinner he requested I make him my "mini burgers"....
and of course we couldn't end a celebration without having a Cold Stone ice cream cake!...
...and that was our HAPPY FATHERS DAY (June 17th 2012)
