"By Small & Simple Things..."

Tony is very hard to shop for. So every June tends to be a bit hard with both Father's Day and his birthday to scrounge up gifts for. But this year, I was inspired by two great ladies with an absolutely fabulous idea for Tony's Father's Day gift.

My friend Albanie, who lives in Costa Rica (how cool is that?!), took pictures of her two kids in their daddy's work shirt as part of her husband's Father's Day gift. Which got my rusty wheels a spinnin'. And my sister-in-law Wendy gave me the perfect caption to complete the gift from Alma 37:6. And voila! Tony's Father's Day gift.


Thanks for your inspiration, ladies. You make my world a brighter place.

You are AMAZING! I love that idea...I like the idea of doing my kids in jerseys or high tops! I am glad you called and that I could help. His gift looks fabulous!

This is the cutest thing ever - I just showed it to a bunch of my co-workers! Yes, you are amazing and I'm going to borrow this idea...for a gift for Lance and probably incorporate it into my RS lesson somehow. Don't worry, I always give you credit. :)

Very cute! My dad showed me a series of photos that a father had taken of his daughter over the years. He started when she was little and put her in her mom's high heels and a dress. He took a photo every year with her in the same clothes. It was neat to see her get older and start to fill in her mother's clothes. When she was all grown she fit into them perfectly.

That turned out super cute! Nice work. I think I might take picture of all our teeth to send to dad. What do you think???
