Candy Gram for Dad {gift idea}

First things first.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!! I hope you are spending this day with someone you love…. or doing something totally un-valentine related if you’re one of THOSE people.

I tried to take some pictures of my kiddos this morning, all cheery and Valentiney… but alas, this is the best picture out of a hundred.

Needless to say, today has not been a day of love around here.

If you follow me on instagram (@natdalpias), you may have seen evidence of this.

I don’t know why I expect them to magically be all sweet to each other and in LOVE just because it’s Valentine’s day.

It occurred to me this afternoon that maybe I should do something for Casey for Valentine’s day. You know, since we’re in love and all…

But, we agreed when we first started dating that we weren’t going to make a big deal out of Valentine’s day. I’m sure it was his idea.

And since I didn’t want to break our “deal”, I had to think of something from the kids. So he won’t feel like a chump when he gets home tonight without flowers or chocolates.

And this is what I came up with:

I know what you may be thinking… Corny much? Yeah, SUPER corny!!!

But if there’s ever an appropriate occasion to be corny, Valentine’s day is it!

And it’s “from the kids”, so I’m not going to get in trouble for breaking our “deal”.

If you’d like to make your own candy gram for Dad… maybe for Father’s Day, since it’s now 4:00 on the day of LOVE, here’s what you’ll need for this version:

Dad’s Rootbeer, Skor, RedHots, Chicklets, Razzles, Mr. Goodbar, Corn Nuts, Sugar Daddy, Smarties, Big Hunk, Nerds, Air Heads, Sweet Tarts, 100 Grand, Runts, Peeps, Pop Rocks, and something to represent each member of the family.

“Dad, we know it wasn’t easy to “skor’ a “redhot” “chicklet” like Mommy, but since she “razzles” you so much, we though we’d remind you that you are a “mr goodbar”! We are “corn nuts” about yo! Our “Sugar Daddy” is a “Smartie” and  a “Big Hunk”! Sometimes you’re a nerd or an “airhead”- But you are always a “sweet tart”. You are worth “100 Grand”! We are glad we’re your “runts”. We want to tell all of the “peeps” that our “pop rocks”. Love, your “3 Muskateers”
