The Sweetest Gift

Happy Mother's Day

I do not normally get gifts from DH and the kids so when a box was dropped off at the house it was very special... Inside it was.....
a dozen hand dipped large strawberries from Shari's Berries.... They are yummmmy... You can tell because there is already one missing from the box. *licks fingers*

However, that was not the best gift that I received for Mother's Day....

Wee Man made a card and gift for me while at school. He was so excited but was able to keep it a secret right until I was about to open it... *laughing*

"This little flower is special you see.
 Because it was made from a part of me.
 My painted thumb made each flower part
 to show I love you with all my heart!
 Happy Mother's Day!"

The inside of the card was so precious it made me cry and laugh at the same time. Yet, it was the handmade "towel" that stole my heart. Each flower is made from his fingerprints just like the one on the card. Now I need to figure out how to frame it....

I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day.
and of course....
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to my Mom, Nonnie and MIL!

Did anyone else get a wonderful surprise this Mother's Day?


  1. I used to just love getting things the kids made in school. They are so proud of what they did.. and of course I saved everything they made and now they ask me "how come you still have that junk?". Once they become mothers they will know...Wow a 55 corvette! That is so cool. Ours is a 75 Stingray, while we are on vacation it will be in the shop getting a new front bumper. The fiberglass cracks so we need a new one...It is a fun car...Hope you have a great mothers day!!
