poppa’s gift from the kids

I was thrilled with how the gift idea I had for the kids Poppa, a.k.a. my hubby or Ryan, turned out.

I used large paper mache letters that I found at JoAnn Fabrics, painted them with black paint, dressed the kids up, headed to the park with a wagon full of props in tow and came up with this.

Here are some outtakes from our photo session…

There are a lot of photos that I wanted to use, but they just didn’t work to spell out “POPPA”, I’ll have to come up with something fun for all for the other cute photos.

I also had multiple prints of the photos I did decide to use printed out. I am going to put some in an accordian type album for Ryan to take on the road with him when he travels for work…might have to use my new sewing machine for that project!

As for my own father’s gift…he will be visiting us in less than 2 weeks to spend 5 days at the Oregon Coast and we will treat him to a seafood lunch at Mo’s in Lincoln City!

home is…the joy of giving gifts to those that you love.

    I’m sure Ryan loved his gift… and the thoughtfulness it took to make it… your birthday sewing machine will be put to good use I know…
