 Grin Grin That is so adorible! What a great idea!  I am going to have to try that! I just LOVE it!  I love how you have the kid's pictures in the letters!  How inventive!
  That kind of reminds me of something I did way back when my boys were very young, (they are now 19 and 17) we didn't have any money so I had some different colors of puffy paints, and a T shirt that my husband had from the Navy (he had just gotten out of the Navy at this time) so I took a paper plate, poured a bit of one color paint  in the paper plate, had Jamie put his hands in it and put the hand print on the front middle part of the T shirt as if he was reaching up to his Dad.  Then I put a sheet of wax paper on the plate so it didn't dry up until we could get back to it,
then in an other color, did the same with my younger son who was just a year old.  I put those hand prints on the shoulders of the T Shirt as if he was hanging on his shoulders.  Then wrote "Daddy, we Love You!" on the chest of the T.  Waited for the prints to dry, turned the T over and then had Jamie step into the paint that was "his color" and step on the bottom part of the T, then did the same with my younger son but put his foot prints on the middle part of the back.  Then  wrote the date on the back.  After cleaning the boys up, letting the puffy paint dry, I ironed it and the paint Puffed!
  My husband was so taken by that shirt.  He still to this day keeps it, it is a bit tight on him now but he won't every get rid of that.
