Father's Day

Being the procrastinator that I am, I did not get these done in time to post them BEFORE Father's Day, but I still wanted to share our little creations.

Each of the four girls gave Daddy a card with a funny little inside joke, so to speak, that incorporated one of his favorite candy bars...
"I will try not to make c-reeses in your pillow tonight..."
Because she has been waking up in the middle of the night and ending up in our bed.  He hates creases in his pillowcase!

"I will try no to have butterfingers when I get your cold drinks from your room..."
We have a small fridge in our room upstairs that we keep soda in.  Chey has taken it upon herself to be the drink runner.  But more often than not, she ends up dropping it on the way down the stairs!

(Sorry about the picture.  Blogger keeps auto rotating it! Grr!)
"I will let you enjoy this treat without asking for some..."
As with most little kids, Charly hates to see anyone eating a treat without asking for a bite!
**Before she gave him the card, I had to remind her not to ask.  I even had to go so far as bribe her with her own special treat!**

"I will try not to snicker when I beat you at Wii Golf..."
Daddy is good, but Kota can beat him.  She loves it!  We're working on being gracious winners and losers!
The cards were made out of soda can boxes that I covered with scrapbook paper.  I just hot glued the candy bars on.

Daddy also got this... (found at Walmart for $1)
and this... (found at $ Tree)
They were both full of his favorite movie-watching-snacks and a movie.
He was pretty Stoked.

I hope your Father's Day was as awesome as ours!
