Mother's Day



My family came over to celebrate Mother's Day with me yesterday, a week late, because our schedules did not allow for it on the real day. The first picture is me with my son. And GOSH, in every Mother's Day picture I look shorter and shorter compared to him! Anne Marie came over in her new dress, and was so excited to be wearing her first pair of grown up wedge shoes!!! And look what she made me, she chose these flowers and made the pot herself. She chose and embedded each thing into the pot sides!! The shells are from her trips to the beach, and she bought the other things. And right in the middle, she spelled GRANDMA! If you think I posted too many pictures of it, you should see the others I didn't post! I hope you all had a great Mother's Day!!


“Good friend, follow your father's good advice; don't wander off from your mother's teachings. Wrap yourself in them from head to foot; wear them like a scarf around your neck. Wherever you walk, they'll guide you; whenever you rest, they'll guard you; when you wake up, they'll tell you what's next. For sound advice is a beacon, good teaching is a light, moral discipline is a life path.”
Proverbs 6

The flower pot is so pretty, Anne Marie really worked hard on her gift to grandma. I really like those shoes. She is getting to be a big girl.

Quite an artist your Anne Marie, and what a special gift. I'm glad you posted pictures of all the details.

Ann said...

Noe Ginny, don't you go and use that pot. Be a good girl, and put it in the display cabinet.

You are so blessed.

The day my kids grew taller than me, I celebrate.

Although my children now select wonderful gifts for me that I love, none are as dear as those they made for me as children. The flower pot is so sweet!

Best,
Bonnie

What a lovely post, Ginny! I'm so glad you have the love of your son and the grand child...who, by the way, seems to be following her grandma's creativity!

I'm glad you showed these pictures of the flower pot. Anne Marie did a marvelous job making this, and you should be proud of her and showing her work. It sounds as if you had a great Mothers Day, even if it wasn't on the official date.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I just LOVE your pot Ginny! So cute - and she looks adorable in that dress.

Karin said...

As I've often heard around here, "Every day should be mother's day and not just once a year." Your son takes after his dad - taller than you! And yes, we do shrink every year, lol! Your little Anne Marie is very creative and has good taste too! Love her outfit! Enjoy!!

Annie said...

Happy Mother's Day EVERYDAY, Ginny. Tell Anne Marie her shoes ROCK. And, her gift is so filled with love. You can practically SEE the love radiating from each treasure she placed there for you.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! It doesn't matter what day it is celebrated on. Your little granddaughter is so precious. And I love her shoes. So tell me what she used on the outside of that vase to make things stick and then dry? I would love to make one.
