DIY Toddler Made Thank You Cards

We are blessed to have wonderful family and friends surround us!  Eliana was showered with love and presents for her birthday.  We wanted to show our appreciation, but Eliana isn’t old enough to write her own thank you cards yet.  So we did the next best thing – she decorated the cards and I wrote… Continue reading DIY Toddler Made Thank You Cards
