Happy Mother's Day!

We spent yesterday evening with my in-laws and we're spending today with my parents.  Hope my mom likes the two Double Knockout rose bushes I got her (that my lawn guy accidentally planted, sheesh)...

Along this line of thought, do parents really appreciate homemade gifts from their kids?  Even the obviously crappy ones like the blue ash tray I made out of playdough for my mom when I was 5 even though no one in my family smokes?  LOL

Hope everyone's day goes well!


  1. I can tell you that parents treasure those crappy homemade gifts! They get more adorable as the years go by.

  2. Definitely treasure! The ones we decide not to keep I take a lot of pictures of or scan so I have some kind of record.

    My 19 month old daughter came home from daycare on Friday with a little pot filled with playdough and handmade flowers. One of the flowers had a picture of her in the middle over some handprint art she'd made. I am definitely keeping this even though I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. Too adorable!

  3. Homemade gifts are the BEST. Absolutely the best.

  4. I'll keep this in mind for Mom's birthday! Maybe I'll make her a mixed CD of sappy songs we both like or something...
