We {Heart} Daddy :: Homemade Father's Day Gift

Well, I guess there is one nice thing about having a husband who never reads your blog...you get to share his Father's Day gift with the world before be even unwraps it!

This week Brody and I {and Baby Girl} have been working on a special collage to give to Jonathan this weekend.  Last time I went to his office I realized he was in dire need of some updated pictures.  His most recent photo of Brody was from when he was 6 months old!  {And the picture of me was from college graduation six years ago. Whoa!}

I'm pretty sure he's going to love it!

The matchbox cars forming the "heart" are all of Jonathan's cars from his childhood that he gave to Brody.

Now that we are finally finished taking the photos and editing them, we are off to the store to print them and find a frame.

Update: Check out the handmade wrapping paper Brody made to wrap this gift here!

  7. What an awesome gift idea! I love the last picture of him with the sign; that's too cute! Unfortunately, my husband reads my blog (and so do my parents and grandpa...) so I don't get to put up any posts about gift ideas until AFTER the holiday has passed. Ah well :-) Thanks for sharing at The Fun In Functional!
