Happy Mother's Day!

What a fun day!  Anytime my kids get together for any reason is a fun day for me.  Isn't that the way with Mothers?  I know we are gathering with my siblings later in the day to celebrate with MY MOTHER.  And she will be so excited!  

 I sent her this Mother's day greeting through Hallmark E-cards.  It's just a fun little thing!  We have something more special planned for later this afternoon.  (shush - don't tell her, but we're all getting together at my sister's condo in Park City Utah, having homemade CAFE RIO SALADS, and sharing mother's day gifts and creations)

We have a favorite Mother's Day tradition at our home.  Ever since my kids were little, we all gather together, hit my favorite nursery, load up on flowers then come home and plant MOTHER'S DAY POTS.  They turn out gorgeous, and the kids love to watch them grow and blossom throughout the summer.  It's wonderful!  With so many helping hands they all get planted soooo quickly!  

It started out with me telling the kids what to plant where, now that they are bigger they like to design their own pots.  (I do give them little clues about where to put the TALL flowers so they don't HIDE everything else:)

Just thought I'd share MY mother's day flowers 
with all of you!

Have a very happy

I love flowers and planting them too. I spent all day on Saturday planting the garden and doing my pots too. Sure wish my boys would have been out there helping me.
Happy Mother's Day!!

Planting mother's day pots, what a great idea, I might just have to borrow that one for next year.
PS: your family looks like so much fun, I wish we were neighbors!!

I'm with everyone else, too: what a great tradition...you get to see everyone, and also get to have flowers all summer long!

P.S. In two days seminary ends and I get my life back (for a few weeks until I start working on next year.) So to celebrate I --based totally on your recommendation--I bought Life of Pi and will be reading it.
