Father's Day Gifts

For Father;s Day, we decided to  make  our own gifts for my husband instead of buying.  The Burritos did some paintings for their Dad and we prepared some other stuff as well.  We did not spend much for our gifts since we used what he  have at home like photos, empty jars, and other  materials.  The only thing that we bought was the frames for their paintings.  
Since the theme of our gifts is recycling, we used an empty cardboard box  to put our gifts in.  Ms. Burrito  covered it with the  colorful  papers that we used  when my husband celebrated his birthday.
"It's the thought that counts" is still being practiced at home.  We want to kids to learn how to appreciate  small and simple gifts as long as you put  effort and love in preparing it.
So these are what we have for him.  We used empty candle jars, put some colorful sand at the bottom and  put a photo inside.
The kids card is also "handmade" literally, lol.
They  wrapped their gifts personally and wrote  their messages on it.
Even my son did really well in wrapping his painting.
I gave my husband the notepad holder that he likes.
Our Father's Day celebration was very simple but very meaningful as we are all together.  How about yours, how was Father's Day at your end?

Playing Toccatina at Home

My mind is wandering  this week.  Last Monday, I totally forgot that it was my children's piano lesson day so I did not wake them up early.  The teacher texted me  and asked if we are coming, I was taken back to my senses lol.  We went ten minu0tes late but glad that  we were able to make it  even  a little late.  This morning, I am trying to ogure out how a psr 172 digital piano works as it is for sale?  Can anyone explain?  But anyway, here is a short video of my daughter practicing Toccatina at home.
