Happy Mothers Day!

I love Mothers Day! Who wouldn't love a day when you get totally spoiled? I woke up to cards and a present. These are some of the cards my girls made for me. Aren't they sweet? They are so resourceful and creative. Plus they gave me a really cool docking/charging/alarm clock/speaker thing for my I-pod. I've been wanting one for awhile - it will be great when I travel. (Thanks Jake!)

We went to church where I teach the two year-olds in the nursery. I put together this card for the kids to make and give to their moms. Tracing their hands was far more difficult than I planned (I guess I forgot how wiggly a two-year old can be!) But, they had so much fun measuring the string to show how much they loved their mom. I do think they turned out cute so I thought I'd share.

After that I got to spend a couple of uninterrupted hours stamping! I made this card for my mom. I love the bright cheery colors. They match the rest of her present.....a huge bowl from Tupperware. I love these bowls because they hold a ton, but since they are tall instead of wide, they don't take up a ton of room. I filled the bowl with some bright colored dish towels and a yummy raspberry-lime candle. I think it all turned out pretty cute!

We went over to my Mom's house for a delicious dinner and a relaxing evening. It's been a really great day, and I thought I'd end it by wishing all the moms out there a very happy Mother's Day!!!

You are always so amazing at every thing you do. Your nursery kids are sure lucky to have you as a teacher! And yes your girls are darling and their cards are the cutest.
