Fathers Day

During my blogging absence I've realized that, hey I'm a frugal mom. I can now blog about more than resisting Starbucks coffee and, "oops, we ate out again."

For Father's Day instead of a card my son and I spent $1 on some paint and $5 on a picture frame and we made Daddy a craft. It was my first attempt at a foot print so I think it turned out well. I saw this on pinterest awhile back and the poem caused me to tear up. My husband isn't sentimental but he does love his son. I took a chance that he'd appreciate our efforts. He did.

I let baby Abe color it with orange crayons.
And I just love it!


  1. Awww, neat! :)

  2. What a great idea. I'm sure you husband was very touched.

  3. My wife and daughter did something similar to this last year and I can honestly say, it was so much better than an actual store bought gift.

    Believe it or not, we guys deep down don't need the latest gadgets or tools, just something with a little thought like this is a great way to start the day for us and realize what's important. :)
