Father's Day Top 10

This year for Father's Day, we're doing a repeat of last year's Father's Day gift.

I just love this idea so much, we may well do it as long as I can coax the girls into making handprints...which I think surely I can do until they're at least 20, right?

On the center card: "The Top 10 Reasons We Think You're the Best Daddy in the World", on which I listed some of the fun things the girls love to do with their daddy...

1. You help us build the best “structures” with our blocks, and the tallest towers.

2. You are an expert tambourine-roller.

3. You never tire of sampling our tea and lemonade, and all our culinary creations.

4. You show us how to be super sweet to our furry sister Sasha.

5. You sing “Found a Peanut” every night, even though we know it’s not your favorite song, and you make up all sorts of silly lyrics to “Baa-Baa Black Sheep” at our requests.

6. Two words…tickle time!!!

7. We love to “do jedan”…and we know you do, too. [count in Serbian]

8. You give us nose kisses the first thing when you come home from work, and you talk to us through the window in the backyard when you cut the grass.

9. You’re an expert snuggler.

10. You’re ours.

I love how this list contrasts to last year's, which included things like "you give the best shoulder rides" and "you know the perfect temperature for our bathwater". And of course I love seeing how the girls' hands have grown in the last 12 months.

Happy Father's Day to my girls' sweet daddy! (And to my sweet dad, the girls' granddaddy, too!)

what a super sweet idea! I did a sentimental gift and a fun gift this year. I traced each of the kids' hands and did Daddy's too...then made a matted/framed piece of the kids' hands inside Daddy's. Saw the idea on another craft blog and loved it.

Then I got him tickets to a Detroit Tigers game for him and a friend. :-)

Hope you had a great day as a family!

What a sweet idea! I think I just may have to do this next year!

By the way, if you want to link up with our blog hop this week, you can do it here: "What I Love About Me! Mondays" :)

I love this! By the time they're 18, he'll have a whole book of why he's the best!

Such a sweet idea, and a great keepsake to look back on when A & B are older. I wish I'd remembered this idea. Maybe we'll give it a try next year (if I can remember it then).
