Mother's Day

Man, is it just me or is this year flying by? I cannot believe that in 2 days it will be May. Which means in 5 weeks Bryce and I will be married for 5 years. In 7 weeks, my baby girl will be 2!! And in just 8 short weeks, I will turn the big 3-0. Aaaaggggghhhhhh!!

So, with Mother's Day fast approaching, I was wondering what are you going to get your mother? Since, my mom lives so far away, I usually just send her flowers and a card. I would like to do something a little more special this year. So, if you have any thoughts please share. On another note, I have been "volunteered" by Bryce to help make the Mother's Day gift that is handed out to all the moms right after sacrament. Now, we could have gone the easy route and just gotten Hershey bars for all the moms, but we are doing something more creative this year. I only wish that I knew how time consuming it was going to be. Because if I had known then what I know now, we would have done the Hershey bars! Ivory and I spent over 7 hours yesterday (yes, 7) working on them and we are no where near done. The sad part is that this is my gift too. So, I am making my own gift. Hopefully, Bryce will realize how much time and effort that has gone into these and he will get me something wonderful! A girl can dream, right?

I'd like to say you should have gone the easy route but that would so be calling the kettle black! I'm awful when it comes to stuff like that, what starts out as something fun turns into a nightmare, been there. Good luck, I hope you do get something WONDERFUL for Mother's Day! :) Cute background, btw!

I have no idea what to get my Mother either! And this is kind of a big-deal type of mother's day, because she is very sick right now. What do you get for someone who lives several states away and you have no idea what they actually really want or need? I talk to my mom on the phone several times a week and so it isn't as though I don't know her well. But she doesn't really NEED or WANT anything. It would be different if I were closer. SO much easier. Sigh.

It sounds like the mothers in your ward will have something extra special on mother's day. That's so nice of you!

My husband DID surprise me last year for mother's day with something nice and it was the first time in 9 years. But before I knew he was going to I bought myself something really nice that I wanted and told him that it was from him and the kids and to wrap it and give it to me for mother's day. It turned out to be a very lovely mother's day. :)
