First, here's what was ordered for me for my garden. A Chinese Empress Tree and a Sungold Butterfly Bush, I can't wait for them to arrive!
Next, this is a really big card made by our two teenagers (13 & 14.5), with a little help from Dad. :O)
This is an envelope taped to the bottom left of the big card, which said "To the Best Mom". After opening it up, it said, "If there were a billion ways to say 'I love you' then we'd say them all. But since there's only one, then we'll say it a billion times!! WE LOVE YOU, MOM!!"
This was the bottom center part, using scrapbook letters and some letters that my daughter did herself beautifully in Calligraphy (the really fancy black letters cut from white paper), which says, "Happy Mother's Day! Love, Chris & Taylor 2009" The other picture is from the top right; a note from my wonderful husband. :O) It says, "To the Dear Mother of my children. Happy Mother's Day! 2009 John"
These were across the center of the big card. They say things like, "Dream" "Cherish Family" "Celebrate Together" "Treasure the Gift of Friends" "Mom"
The drawing is from the bottom right of the big card. Such a cute & sunny scene! I love it! The other is the note from my daughter (the 13 year old). It says, "Mom, I love you so much. No matter how many times we fight, or get mad at each other, just know that nobody on this Earth has a better mom. You are the Best!! I will always love you! Love, Taylor"
God has surely blessed me with a Wonderful family! And I had a blessed Mother's Day, with happy tears!
