Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! I haven’t gotten to see my own dad yet, but tonight we’re having pizza and beer to celebrate the first man I ever loved 🙂
The girls and I have had the best time celebrating Jarrod today. He’s such a great daddy, and we wanted nothing more than to make this a special day for him!
First we made him organic peanut butter cookies…
Hoke doing what she does best… getting things out of the pantry
Hen adding the sugar…
Mixing it all up…
When the cookies were done and everyone was in bed, mama decorated the kitchen…
Jarrod always gets out of bed before I do, so I think he was especially surprised this morning when I woke him up to come have fresh ground coffee, and homemade buttermilk biscuits with bacon, egg, and cheese.
Just out of the oven.
This is an old picture! I forgot to take one today because I was too busy eating. Just picture this with eggs added to it 🙂
Then it was time to open his presents! The girls and I worked hard on these.
Just mix 1/2 cup of flour, 1/2 cup salt, and 1/4 of a cup of water. Roll into a ball. Mash flat. Make your imprint, and bake @200 degrees Farenheit for 3 hours. Let cool and then paint.
Before I baked them I poked a hole in the top of each. We painted ours a cream color and then I went back and just painted the hand print. After painting, I strung twine through them and hot glued a bow at the top. On the back in sharpie, I wrote the name date, age, and a little father’s day message.
(I know the homemade handprint Father’s day gifts are so predictable, but the girls loved it, Jarrod loved it, they were inexpensive, and all homemade!)
As a cute an inexpensive gift to my dad, I made him this:
I saw several similar ideas on pinterest, but I just spliced a few of those together and came up with this. I think it’s so cute, and he loves peanut m&ms. I didn’t use a template for the tie. I just eyeballed it. ( As you can probably tell!)
After such a heavy breakfast and with pizza for dinner tonight, we had a lovely Father’s Day salad for lunch. We used lettuce and veggies from our garden…
