Happy Father's Day 2010!

Happy Father's Day to the most wonderful husband/ dad in the world! This year we had a totally homemade Father's Day. As you saw, the girls made the pancake batter squirters, and they also "helped" me make this duvet cover. Poor Daniel has been sleeping in a sleeping bag at work for the last few years -- this present was long overdue!

Once finished, I wrapped it back up in its original plastic, but added my own tags! (Thanks, Martha!)

We also put our own labels on some of his favorite treats from Trader Joe's.

Pancakes for breakfast... what else?!!?

The girls were so proud of their present, they couldn't wait until Papa ate to make him open it!

After breakfast, Papa showed the girls how to make the crystal "sing."

Checking out his new comforter... I think he likes it!

That afternoon, Daniel and Allison went to the park to play soccer, while Natalie and I baked his favorite cookies. (Of course, we had to add some chocolate for the ladies in the house!)

Grilled fajitas for dinner, and now enjoying the wide open windows and playing some Wii... gotta run!

Total Cuteness!!! We used the same cupcake toppers, but for donuts! We also did a fun homemade gift for Wayne. One of these days I will get around to posting the pictures so you can see. LOL

Hey Mel! I made Daniel a pillowcase before through Walgreens photo, but they didn't do duvet covers. So, I googled photo duvet covers, but the prices were way expensive, so I just thought to use iron on material and do it myself. I got a package of 10 at JoAnn's using a 50% off coupon, and the duvert cover at Ikea. I used acrylic paint for the words, as I know it stains. Hope that helps!
