Getting Ready for Mother's Day


This morning I woke my youngest child up, and the very first thing he said is, 'Is it Mother's Day today?' Aww! Have I mentioned lately that I love that kid?? :)

He's been making gifts all week for me and his grandma, and hiding them in a box so I cannot see them. We'll take the box to my mother-in-law's on the big day and she and I will get to be surprised together.

I do know whatever's going on in there has so far involved paint, scissors, glue sticks, crayons, a couple of rocks, and a LOT of paper. I did come across one picture this morning that he left out to dry and forgot to hide away. Not sure who this one belongs to, but I'm pretending I haven't seen a thing. ;)

If you're celebrating, are you ready for the big day?

  1. Oh so cute ... Reagan couldn't wait to give me my Mother's Day gift that she made for me. I got it on Sunday because she couldn't contain her excitement.
    Love the little ones!!

  4. So sweet!! My kiddos just asked yesterday and then got busy with the paper, glue, markers, etc. Every time I walked through the room I had to close my eyes...also had to keep them closed as my daughter fit something over my head. I'll have to wait until Sunday to see what that is-I'm curious now!! ;-)

  5. That is really sweet. Your son is going all out and thrilled to be doing it!

    Last year James made flowers and notes and taped them on the windows. Those are things I will remember! Happy Mother's Day!

    2. Now, when it comes to being s good son... that's a completely different topic. I mean, I just bought some perfume online. I'm too lazy to go shopping for my own Mom! Maybe I just don't like shopping like most men. Does that make me a bad son you think?

    3. If you thought of her and showed it in any way at all, the gift doesn't matter a bit (no matter your age). :)

  7. That is just the sweetest thing! I bet it makes you feel so happy :) He sounds like such a precious little guy. I'm celebrating with my mom on Sunday and we're having family over for a potluck. Gotta figure out what I'm bringing! I know I'm getting my mom a lilac bush because last week she told me she's always wanted one.

    PS - Thanks for posting about my farm fresh feature on your facebook page! I tried to comment there but it didn't give me the option to comment, so just wanted to let you know I appreciate it :)

  15. Every day I beg for rain to water all my new trees and we don't get any. Now it's predicted to rain on Mother's Day, the one day a year I always lie outside with a mock daiquiri in hand. We'll just have to wait and see! Coldest spring ever!

  20. That sounds so sweet!!!

    Isaak last year had a mother son tea. This year he had a grandparent son tea. It switches back and forth from year to year. They make muffins, have drinks and books that we read together. It's fun, but I feel bad that dads get left out.

  37. Super sweet! My daughter came home from school with mother coupons, good for various chores & even a 20 second hug (love her) ... also she gave me a small sunflower plant. My six year old son came home from school with a card made into a story of a Mom who has many hats and what his Mom does for him as well as a cute home made mother's day card. My youngest,I do believe the plant he had in his hand on way out of school was for me, but he ummm... well... he had his own way with it and it's ruined. lol Happy Mothers Day!
