Happy Mother’s Day!

I wish the Happiest of days to all of you Mothers on this Mother's Day.  Extra special wishes are sent to my own Mom for being the most amazing and loving role model!  I love you Mom!  We also send extra special wishes to Grandma Patti and to Grandma Grandma as well as to my beautiful Sisters-in-law, to my many Friends who are Mothers and to those of you who are like a Mom to someone and who have the Spirit of Motherhood in your heart!  This day is to celebrate you! Enjoy!

 

I had a really sweet start to my day! Ethan is always the first awake in our house on the weekend, so I awoke to him standing beside our bed anxious to show me what he had made me for Mother's Day.  Last Sunday during one of my classes he hauled a bunch of my supplies up the stairs and made me this adorable card!  All he needed was paper, stamps, ink and his own touch of creativity!  He even added some ribbon, that is a boy after my own heart!

 


 

This is what he made at school! Check out the adorable paper-pieced tulips! 

 


I just LOVE his poem! …and can't get over the tulips! He is pretty proud of them too! These projects will definitely make it to a scrapbook page along with some photos of us from today! 

 

Here is what Lennon created at Preschool!  This explains the orange finger nails one day last week!  He told me he was painting with his hands and surprisingly kept it a secret!  ..he's a good little keeper of secrets…we're in trouble in his teens!  

This is how it was wrapped!

 

This is what was inside, now if this doesn't tug at the heart strings, I'm not sure what will?!

 

 


 

Another sweet poem!

 

All of this sweetness was a wonderful start to my day! ..and it got even better!

Ethan set the table all by himself this morning…can you tell?!  Love the kid dishes he chose along with the sparkly cups!  He even got out the table cloth that was a special gift from Susie and family that her Dad brought back from Portugal.  Don't you love the DQ napkins?!  I just love it all!

 

 

The Boys all made breakfast and to top things off Ryan created this in My Digital Studio (all by HIMSELF) as a surprise and played nice music to set the mood.  We all loved it!  I have to admit I was quite surprised that he came up with this and that he played his hand at MDS!  This was a template that he added the photos to and changed a couple of things. I'm impressed and feel very loved!  It doesn't take much to make me happy!  A few handmade cards, love shared and time with my boys is all it takes!

 


 

Have a wonderful day!  I hope you get to share it with loved ones and that you keep your loved ones who are afar close at heart today!  

 

Happy Mother's Day!

Oh, Alanna………these are so cute!!!!!!  How precious these all are–even the one that Ryan made for you.   These are memories you'll have forever.  I have kept a few things mine made.  I found a card my son made about 30 years ago with  a photo of him and a poem.  I'll try to find it to post, too.  Thankyou for sharing your pictures and poems with us all.
