    My daddy would always say, “Oh Father’s day is just another day!” I still would make his favorite foods, and favorite Chocolate pie. My favorite father’s day was just having my daddy to hug and tell him how much I loved him. I would thank him for all the wonderful years he gave his favorite little girl. I would also say “Daddy I love you”. My daddy would tell me he was the very first man I kissed! Love all the old stories. I would name my book “Tell me again Daddy”. They were all special to me. Thank you Rachel for sharing.

    I like the book you featured above with the little boy. That book is so adorable. I’ll have to check out your other books you mentioned above.
    I made my dad a Father’s Day/birthday book. It was the year he turned 70 and at the time, I didn’t think to do a book for him on his birthday in January. So I combined the two events and made them into one book. I used older photos, & recent ones, and had everyone in the immediate family write messages. I think he liked it. He’s a hard one to buy for, so I thought this would be perfect,

    For my husband’s Father’s Day book I made it about our son’s first year. Our son is 9 months old so it’s the very first Father’s Day. Since my husband was gone for about 5 months with the military we also included a “When you were gone…this is what I did” section.
    I’m really excited to see how it turned out.

    I made a book a few years ago for my husband for Father’s Day and he loves it still. I took the lyrics from Bette Midler’s “Wind Beneathe My Wings” and transcribed one or two lines on each page. I tried to match the backround papers to the specific lyrics on that page and put in pictures of our three boys that I tried to match to the lyrics as best as possible. The last few pages, each of us wrote him a note about how he is special to us individually. I love the way it turned out and we all still look at it often and reminisce! Here is a link so you can check it out.
