Haha you know I thought about that, how the only crafts from the kids I'd ever get would be the ones they'd make in school, lol! Well, at least that'll be SOMETHING lol!!

Here here. This morning after DH opened his lovely framed 'DAD' photos, he did actually acknowledge what a PITA I went through to have the kids do all the stuff for his b-day and f-day, and how much he really appreciated that I would just persevere to get them done and have the kids do them. He said, "I would have given up at the first sign of reluctance." LOL

Oh Colleen, those are awesome cards. Did I miss the site that you printed them from? I was looking for stuff like that and couldn't find it. Great job!!!!
