Fathers Day 2008

Thanks to Hobby Lobby, all the fathers in our family received beautiful handmade gifts from the children. I had Brittany, Alexis, Mercedes, Dakota, Alec and Savannah making Father's Day gifts yesterday, Brittany, Mercedes and Dakota until 3:00 a.m. this morning! The older girls stayed up baking the ugliest cake in the world for Doug and Jim (neither of them have been brave enough to eat any at this point)! BUT - - - - THEY HAD THE BEST TIME BAKING THE CAKE (all from scratch, no boxes and bought icing here!). The gifts were not anything expensive or anything fancy but they were handmade shadow boxes painted in each of the fathers favorite color and displaying a poem that was there description of their father. I also bought a paddle for Papaw Johnny and they painted it red with "Papaw's Paddle" on the front, "Happy Father's Day 2008" on the back, along with each of their names and the year they were born.

My girls and boys all did a great job! They worked very hard and were very proud of what they had done and I am very proud of them as well!
