Happy Mother's Day!

I know that a Mother's Day wish is a few days early but, my Mom flies in tonight so I won't be online much between now and Sunday evening.

We are going dress shopping for my Mom's 'Mother of the Bride' dress. This is also the first Mother's Day weekend we have spent together since I finished university. It will be a great weekend as a weekend with my Mom always is. Ian is heading north to Edmonton after work on Friday - I guess there is a little too much woman in this house for him this weekend plus he gets his new wheels on his Mini tomorrow and I think he wants to hang with his best friend, Chris as Chris will have a better appreciation for his new 'rubber' - little does he know - I appreciate new rubber just not the kind that goes on a car!

This first picture is my Mother's gift to my Mom. The tin has a set of all 8 Michael's second set of clear stamps and the block that goes with them. I happened to stumble into Michael's at the right time. I also got a set for myself but I only have 7 of them missing the 'girl' one. The baggie contains a whole lot of Bath and Body Works products that I got for my Mom while we were in Vegas. The 'r' is for Rita.

This second picture is Ian's Mom's gift. I am sure she has never got anything like this from Ian before. Here tin contains some loose English breakfast tea, the individual spoon container for the tea and a lotion from Bath and Body Works. I haven't sent this to her as we are going to Halifax on the red eye next Thursday night so on Friday morning (the 18th) we will be able to give her this gift. The 'd' is for Denise!

These are gorgeous, Shannon! Great job! That's so funny, I made the same thing for my Mum for Mother's Day. I couldn't decide on a theme so I just went with her initial. Great minds must think alike! lol :) I had a great Mother's Day weekend, thanks for asking, and my breakfast in bed was great! :)

I'm looking forward to your trip here so we can get in some crafty time together. :) See ya soon!
