Father's Day Care Package

This month's care package came just in time for Father's Day. My husband loves to fish and calls me his "fish".....so a fish themed care package seemed a given.

I started by buying a very small tackle box and some fish themed candy. I printed out a simple "Daddy's Tackle Box" label and attached it to the front of the box. I then raided my daughters markers to draw some fish and such on the label.

 I wanted to add some goldfish to the box with the fish themed candy....but they got eaten before they could make it into the box.

My husband asked for a framed picture of the kiddos for his desk at work. Since it is impossible to get all six children to sit nicely together and ALL look at the camera at one time I went for individual pictures.

Lastly I decorated the box itself. I checked out pinterest for some fish themed deployment boxes and came up with the ideas below. The original box I based mine off of was much prettier and artistic. Mine was done at 10pm with just construction paper, markers, and tape.

My husband got a kick out of the fish theme this month. He is not having a wonderful time "over there" and anything I can do to make him smile even for a second is totally worth it. Just three more boxes to go before he gets to come home!

Such a cute idea and yay that it's only 3 more. I know that to you it seems like it's forever though. How are the kids liking their summer away?

Found out this weekend that we are expecting again. Very excited, and tired. LOL
