happy mother's day


to all you mom's out there... and to all of those who are mom figures to someone... go out, have a little fun on the house! it's your day! :) be silly. laugh a lot. think of the million and one reasons being a mom is the best thing that ever happened to you... even on those crazy weeks when life seems to be falling apart.

make a silly face behind your child's back when they're not looking...
my mother's day gift to me!


to my mom:
thank you for teaching me to laugh at life,
even the things you might not be quite ready to laugh about!

to my grandma:
thank you for taking the time with me to just be together.
thank you for painting with me when i was growing up and for painting with my kids now.

to my children:
thanks for making me a mom. i love you both.

oh, and i just had to share a little slice of my sweet day. this was my breakfast in bed. (planned and implemented solely by my girls.) the wine glass is filled with flavored water... that yummy kind from costco. and promptly after the tray was dropped in bed i was asked, "hey, can i have a bite of that buttered toast? i love buttered toast. buttered toast is so yummy! wha-aaat???"

my mother's day loot! :)

happy mother's day!!!

You know you've done a great job training your girls when they bring you breakfast in bed on their own. What a treat.

Happy Mother's Day Noel!

Looks like you had a great Mother's Day!!! GREAT pictures! Do you have a studio set up in your house? Besides these pics with the black background, I've noticed your cards have a white background. Just wondering how you are setting up these pics!

hey tracey,

nope, no photo studio... these pics were taken with a black sheet draped over the back of my couch. i turn my couch to face my sliding glass door, since it has nice natural light coming through.

the white back ground on the cards is done with my ghetto fab light box thingy... http://paperpassionpixels.blogspot.com/2008/02/my-ghetto-fab-light-box-so-i-was.html

:D
