Ryan & Cannon love making cards for people. They drew dad pictures and wrote sweet notes.
Since the theme for the present was "orange ya glad", we put in fun orangey items including: orange slices, orange soda, oranges, orange polo, and a photo shopped orange ya glad card (directions are here: http://thesometimessupermom.blogspot.com/2010/06/orange-ya-glad-for-great-dads.html).
How awesome is this soda? I found this a couple of months before Father's Day & hid it for the present. :) Funny note, it tasted terrible! It was orange cream & none of us like cream soda. Yuck! It was sure cute, though!
I used orange gingham for the lining of the basket and ripped a piece for the bow. I really like gingham. I buy it every time I see it on sale.
Pitiful oranges. I couldn't believe these were the best three I found at the grocery store!
We found a basket at Goodwill that was .50. It had a wooden heart on it. We sprayed the basket and heart white. We took some orange paint and painted the word "Dad" on it and used a permanent marker to jazz it up a bit.
The boys added their names on the back of the heart. Parker has really good penmanship for a 7 month old!
Orange ya glad here is the final product? It turned out nice (and it was a very inexpensive gift...my favorite kind.)
The boys were so excited to give their dad his gift! They were proud of their work. Every picture I took of them there was always somebody moving, so unfortunately this is the best one. Happy Father's Day, Jaron!
