Mother's Day 2013

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day, I certainly did. ☺

We went to church on Sunday and celebrated all the Mothers there!

Then we headed to the cemetery to visit Grammy (my Mom's Mom). She is missed every day, but especially on days like Mother's Day.

After that, we went to my parents' house for lunch. The guys cooked lunch for us. They grilled pork steaks, brats, hamburgers and hot dogs. They also fixed macaroni and cheese, corn and baked beans. It was yummy. My Papa Reg (My Mom's Dad), brought dessert! It was a great afternoon spent with my family.

Jackson's not really into taking pictures these days. I think I've worn out the camera's welcome with him, but we managed to at least get one of him and I where he is at least looking at the camera. ;-)

My sister and I went together on gifts for our Mom. We made these cute little flower jars from the boys. My sister posted a tutorial on how they were put together on her blog today. We also plan to take my mom out for a "girls day" to the Painted Zebra and to lunch/dinner.

I also made my mom and my sister these sweet collages and framed them. I got the idea here.


The boys played outside after lunch. They LOVE being outside as much as possible.




 That evening, we headed over to my MIL's house for dinner and to watch the Season Finale of Survivor! ☺

I made her a flower jar with Jackson's hand print on it as well and I made her a collage and framed it. I made her jar pink to match her house a little better.

This was her collage.

And here are a few pictures from our evening with my MIL.

Drew's been the same way lately. I guess us camera-obsessed moms need to cut back a bit. :) Love those flower jars with the handprint. How adorable!!

Love your gift ideas. Personalizing things makes the best gifts!

It took us SEVERAL shots before I had one picture where Marcus was looking at the camera. All 361 photos were pretty much fails.
Your Mother's Day gifts were awesome. Love how sweet and sentimental they are.
