I've been doing a little preparing for father's day this week. I bought my husband a small gift, and then at his suggestion, one more. :) I bought the ingredients to make lasagne tomorrow for dinner.
I bought a gift to send to my own father, but I am worried he already has one, so I also sent the receipt. I also sent him some containers of different kinds of snacks: dried apricots, dried strawberries, pretzel mix, and chocolate covered peanuts and toffee mix. It cost me a lot to send, but my father is 85, and I won't have very many chances to send father's day gifts to him, so I sent what I wanted to send. :) I also sent a gift to my husband's step father. But he reads my blog, so I'm not telling what it is. ;)
Today I need to make some cookies for the fathers at church. My two counselors in my church position are also making some, so we will make up bags with three different kinds of cookies. It's not fancy, but they seem to like it. I'm making ginger snaps. They aren't really crispy, so don't really snap, but they taste good. :)
We stopped by my father in law's house and took him a combined birthday/father's day gift. Then the four of us went out to dinner. None of his other children have a good relationship with him, so I'm glad we could make his weekend special.
Happy father's day to all of my father blog readers. Raising children is something to be celebrated!
