Mother’s Day Mom and Me Class

Here are a couple shots of two of my favorite Mom and Me attendees. This month we made a gift for Mom so, Mom had to stay away. I helped the kids paint and glue and stamp and color their way to a beautiful jeweler holder for Mom. They even made their own wrapping paper so Mom couldn’t see what they made until it was time to open it up. They were so proud of their creation and I am so proud that they were able to wait till Mother’s Day before letting Mom know what they made.

As you can see, I forgot to get a picture of them with their completed project before wrapping it. Sorry.

Some Easter Shots, better late than never!

Wow! Has it been that long since Easter? Holy cow! I was going through my pictures last night. Maggie wanted to scrapbook and I was trying to find some photos for her and there were the pics from Easter.

Maggie and her friends were having a blast decorating cupcakes and a bunny cake that I saw on Love that site!

I was standing on a chair so I could get a better vantage point. Aren’t they precious!?

Playing Catch-Up!

Sorry I have been so lazy lately and haven’t blogged. But, I have been busy. I will show you a couple things that got done that I neglected to share with you.

First is the second stacking toy for my Niece and Nephew’s first Birthday.  I showed the outfits that I made for them in an earlier post.


Then, this is a bird’s nest that is in my Mom’s garage. How cool is that. She thinks it’s a Cardinal. It fly's in with nesting goodies and hurries out when anyone comes into the garage. I will have to check it out again to see what progress he makes. My Dad didn’t realize what it was and almost cleaned it out until it dawned on him what was going on.

On the sad side, we lost another hermit crab and held another funeral. This one was Rob. So, we now have Rob and Bob buried out in the back woods. Now Maggie wants a fish.

For now, that’s all I have time for but I promise to try harder at keeping up with my posts.

Thanks for stopping by, XO, Mimi

Happy Mother’s Day

Today is the day to celebrate everyone of the women in our lives who have touched our heart in the special way that only a Mother can.

This Mother’s Day came a little bittersweet for me since my oldest daughter and I are “at odds” to say the least. Therefore, all of the wonderful things that my baby, hubby and Mother have done for me seem to be amplified.

I am having a wonderfully peaceful day. Just enjoying all the blessings that the Lord has given me and all of the gifts that my loved ones have given me.

Look at that “Loot”! Wonderful smelling sprays and lotions. Hope they aren’t a hint. LOL! A gorgeous orchid plant and pot that was hand painted by my baby, a priceless card from my baby, some lavish Victoria Secret goodies in a cute little purse, a charm bracelet with many thoughtful charms made by my Mother, and an awesome old tool caddy. But, more than that, so much love. I am surrounded by so many loving people that truly bless my life.


I hope that all of the Mothers out there have a wonderful day, full of love, and laughter and only happy tears. Thank you for sharing this day with me. XO, Mimi
