So y'all.... I saw this idea on Facebook or Pinterest or somewhere and HAD to jump on it. It's "No More Mother's Day Cards" and it's fabulous. The idea is to have your hubby buy a journal and then your kids draw and/or write your card IN the journal. Over the years it will be filled with stick people drawings, teeny traced handprints, and sweet notes. Well - that's what it's supposed to be :)
I knew if I told Dave the idea he'd be on board... but that I'd end up with a legal pad with treasured art from my kids, so I took matters into my own hands yesterday and headed to Target.
The pickings were slim, but here were a few I found that I liked.
I loooooooved these by Rifle Paper Co., but the pages had little botanical drawings on them which I was afraid would interfere with the "cards"
I found these and knew they were "just right". The pages were lined, but I got over it and ended up with two packages of two journals each. I'm going to have my kiddos do this for birthdays, fathers day, etc. for Dave and my parents as well. I liked the size, the fact that they weren't spiral bound and the clearance tag :)
I officially turned my journal over to Dave and I'll update y'all on the "cards" that I get on Sunday :)
Since I was thinking about Mother's Day, I decided to go back and look for pics of past Mother's Days.
Mother's Day 2010 - All I wanted was a cute pic of Luke and I together. Two-year old Luke had other plans :)
Mother's Day 2011 - First official picture as a family of four. Even back then Mason was super enthusiastic about pictures. Said no one ever.
Mother's Day 2013 - Brunch at the country club...
... and cereal in bed. Perfect!
So.... do y'all have big plans for Mother's Day? Do you cook? Go out to eat? Have any fun traditions to share???
And one last thought for Mother's Day :)
