The Gifts


My kids are still in school full time and do not have a job. I know they only live with their allowances, so in advance I told them to not worry about getting me anything for Mother's day and  I understand if I don't get anything. They also know I don't like expensive gifts and I prefer that we all get together for a simple dinner. Spending time together as a family is more important to me than anything else.

I came home from work and the kitchen counter top was well decorated with balloons, flowers, and all these cute gifts. My husband played along and even snapped photos as soon as I walked in.. I was surprised, almost made me cry...

The kids told me these are inexpensive gifts, and they knew I would love each one of them... they are right,  I love them all ! I took as many pictures as I could and I thought I share this with all of you...





Chocolate cake from  85 degrees bakery cafe'








A really cute picture frame







If there was a day for everything you have given to me as a mother, it would be Mother's Day every day. Thanks for always helping me to remember what is important in life... and today it is you! You're the best! Thanks for all you do.
