Andy and I got an amazing opportunity to go visit Paris, France and Monte Carlo, Monaco for 9 days. Andy has a job that offers these opportunities. The only downfall is that I had to leave my babies behind for 9 days. Luckily, my mom and dad were up for the job!
I thought it would be fun to leave the little guys some gifts from Mommy and Daddy to open while we were gone. I got the idea from the web somewhere... not sure right now, if it's you, let me know!!
Day 1- Family Photobooks for each boy. I used my Creative Memories program to create a book for each boy with all our immediate family. I laminated the pages, hole punched each, and then use a ring to connect them. I made it "pretty" by adding ribbon, too!
For Day 2- I made Maxwell a ribbon ring. It's a canning jar ring with lots of colorful ribbon from my stash tied to it. Jackson got an electronic game to play.
Day 3- Maxwell gets some paci's to have and Jackson gets some "Color Wonder" paints (don't worry Grandma, they only work on the special paper). Day 9 is also in this picture- Jackson got some Candy for Day 9.
Day 4- Maxwell got a binkie clip mad by Mommy find the tutorial here. Jackson got a game that was already at my Mom and Dad's waiting for him.
Day 5- "Guess How Much I Miss You" story book read by Mommy and Daddy.
Day 6- Matching dinosaur T-shirts made using my Silhouette SD and the fuzzy heat transfer material. They also get a copy of Dinosaur Train shows and a dinosaur book.
Day 7- May Day Basket for Jackson- there is a pair of gardening gloves in there to help grandma.
Day 8- Puppets that I found at Michael's awhile back.
