Kisses from Daddy


Whenever C deploys for a long time, we have a jar of kisses for T. Every day, he gets one kiss from Daddy. When the kisses are all gone, that's when Daddy is coming home to give us real kisses. I try to keep extra on hand because some days, he needs more kisses from Daddy and some days, he knows I need a kiss from Daddy too. We only needed a quart size jar (as opposed to last years half gallon jar), but it still seems like such a long time when the jar is so full.
Last night, I was thinking of how I was going to include this deployment in our scrapbooks, besides the pics of everyday life without Daddy around, and I decided to use the jar of kisses. It holds so much for us-kisses from Daddy, time, hope, excitment, love, and chocolate (!). So I thought this would be the perfect way to include his time away from us.

O.M.G., that is such a super idea for both the kisses jar AND the scrapbooking. Would it not be the coolest thing if he'd appear as soon as you ate them all, no matter how quickly? Dang, I could def do it in under an hour if I had to, LOL (chahhhhh-cluhhhhhte.....).
