Homemade...and a winner NOT!

Forget that fancy jewelry, posh spa day, elegant brunch or new handbag. This Mother's Day was proudly and solely presented by a 4 and 6 year old. They did such a nice job...from that free rose from the supermarket....

..to the hand planted plants in homemade pots....
..to the button person card that Esther made for me at school...
..and the gift bag that Eloise so carefully decorated for me. (I love her handwriting)...
..and the book that Sister Sara's class made for all the mom's. I would evidently wack someone if given 5 minutes alone...
..and my all time favorite gift - the card that Eloise made. I am going to go out on a limb here and decide that she really meant "best" and not beast...maybe not...but at least on Mother's Day I am allowed to pretend a bit.
I hope you all had wonderful Mother's Day. Oh, and no winners on the Guessing Jar. Feel free to buy me a coffee though. There were 35 socks in there. All singletons. Eloise didn't want any pairs in there. That didn't seem like many to me, and I decided to go ahead and count their socks after the comments came in, and together the girls have 96 pairs of socks. Is that a lot?

ah, your girls are adorable.

And girl, do you want to talk mismatched socks? I could whine about that all day. Socks are my nemesis.

So precious! They did a wonderful job decorating everything and who knows - maybe you are the beast! I'm pretty sure my chldren thought that of me while growing up:) These are all "keepers". My favorite non-interaction with Esther yesterday was when she said she couldn't talk to me because she was "grumpy"!

This is so precious! Your girls are so sweet & I think the little misspellings are the best part of the handmade cards!
96 pairs of socks, some might call that a bit excessive...but you do live in the Great White North...we spend half the year barefoot here!
