Happy Birthday Dad!

Today's my Dad's birthday.


And since he lives in Florida and we're all up here in Maryland, we got together to send him a party pic...


I know he's so proud to have us all as his family...


Dad likes to read so I picked up a few books to send as a gift.  And while I was editing our family portrait, I got the idea to whip out a set of bookmarks to go with his new reads...


I just cropped pictures 2"x6" and printed them out on thick cardstock.

A simple gift but one I know will make him smile when he uses them...


I'm making something special today.  If all goes well, I'll share it soon.

Have a great weekend.

He'll love the bookmarks, I m sure! Not least, every bookworm is always short of them, but those beaming faces will bring a smile every time he picks up a book!

Can't do that with a Kindle...

You know, I really see a resemblance between you and your father. I never noticed it in other pictures. How cool! I look like my Dad too.

Happy Birthday Sue's Dad. I know you are smiling ear to ear.
