I hope all you moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend with your families! We were supposed to go to Kraig's parent's home to celebrate with his mom, but he felt like he was coming down with something, so we decided not to risk spreading any sickie germs to her and stayed home. But we will try to go up there to visit and make up for it next weekend. I had a nice time here at home with my two girls—Kraig gave me a bouquet of flowers and Ashley went on one of her famous cleaning binges to make the house look extra nice for me. ;-D They both made me something with their own hands, which I especially loved! Nothing makes me feel more special than homemade gifts and these definitely did the job—Ashley's message under her drawing even made me cry a little, since she's not normally so sentimental. Katie made me a beautiful card and is still finishing up a drawing for me too, so I'm really looking forward to it!
Another thing I look forward to around each Mother's Day is to plant some flowers with them, so I'm making plans to pick up some pretty pink ones to finish off our border along the front entryway. In the meantime, I did manage to capture some great pics of some of the ones already in our yard. I love getting inspiration from flowers and am already planning several different bead designs to try soon!
