We Luv Dad!

(We are in the Israeli airport, waiting to board in a few hours.  I will post about our trip here later, but since Father's Day passed a week ago, I wanted to do this post first!)

I love really personal, one-of-a-kind gifts.  If you have been following this blog for very long, you probably already know that.  So, for Father's Day this year, I did a Google search for ideas and found this picture (below) and knew that was exactly what I wanted to do for Father's Day 2011:
Since I have four children, not three (like were pictured in the original picture), I had a little more freedom when choosing what letters to write on my childrens' feet.  You can see in the pictures below that it took a *LOT* of tries, but you can also see how much fun we had!

Take 3: (below)  Oops!  Got Mommy's feet too!

Take 5: (below)  What happened to Davey?!
Take 6:
Take 7: (below)  Perfect!  (or close enough anyway!)  Cropped and changed to black and white...
(Below)  Custom-framed and matted in a stunning silver... A special gift for a special Daddy!
Happy Father's Day 2011 to a hero Daddy who provides strong, protective hands for his adoring four children!
