Today we celebrated Father's Day with Wayne's dad and his family.
His dad was at camp on Sunday, so we did see him on that day. But the whole family celebrated it tonight.
We all went in on a gift for him. But I bought him something a little extra.
Of course I forgot it at home and had to go back to get it. They only live a few blocks away, so no big deal.
But when I went to get it I realized that I didn't wrap it.
I couldn't just give it to him in the small paper bag that it came in.
So I jazzed it up a tad.
I stamped the bag, added a tag that I stamped a sentiment on and tied it up with a nice ribbon :)
Now let me explain the meaning behind this.
When the men go hunting and they get a deer or a moose, they all have a drink of rum.
They call it the "Kill Bottle". As they have gotten older and drinking and driving is a no no. They started just taking a sip. So when I saw this little key chain flask (which is the real deal by the way) I thought it would be perfect for their "kill bottle" :)
He loved it. I also bought one for hubby.
See the year on there, its 100yrs before I was born ;)
I love that Wayne's family get together for Birthdays and holiday's. Growing up it was just my family. All our relatives lived in Winnipeg. So we never seen them. I would visit my dad and sometimes, some of my relative in the summer. But for birthday's and such, it was just my mom, dad, and sibling.
So this was such a warm feeling to see all of Wayne's family all together celebrating each other. I just love that his family is so close.
Now I am going to share something else about my childhood with you. I bought this note paper when I was about 12 yrs old. I used to save my babysitting money (or allowance) for papers and fun pens. I know I was a paper lover back then as well.
I was so excited when I finally had enough money to purchase a fountain pen and this note pad.
Well today I used the last sheet of paper for a note to Kristy's teacher.
I was hesitant to use it. I can't believe that I still had it. Maybe it was acid free, lol.
