Gifts For Dads

>



My girls needed to give something to their Dad for Fathers day. We thought long & Hard.....

Well he has a serious sweet tooth.....

& he Loves Chocolate....

Then I asked my Daughter..."what else does daddy like?"

She said "he likes work."

He has been working a lot lately and we haven't seen much of him, so I guess she assumes he likes work. The mind of a 2 year old. Then I thought about it...and he really does like work. He loves what he does. Actually he is almost married to his work. Its okay ...it is the one affair he can have that I'm okay with. Ha!



So..we put two + two together...
I'm sure a lot of you know where I'm going with this.

Here is a clue....





YES...he is a Carpenter!


So Carpentry + Chocolate...and we came up with...



These handyman tools are going to be the cupcake toppers.


Don't You Love it?!






I don't think there would have been anything more fitting for their dad than little mini Fondant edible hammer, saw, tool belt , and a wrench.(I don't think a wrench is a carpentry tool..oops!)



He also told me the other day that his tool belt broke. We thought that maybe we could replace his broken one with a new one but I wouldn't even know where to start looking for the right tool belt.

So this is the best I can do....





If you are reading this Dad...."Happy Fathers day to you too!"



With all said & done....we packaged up the cupcakes in a new cooler, with a gift card to the movies. (Toys Story 3-- for a date with him and our daughter)
