10 things we love about mom | our mother's day

You guessed it, no photos of Mommy with her kiddos on Mother's Day. But here's a photo Gordon took of the Strawberry Shortcake we made together on Mother's Day Eve.

And you may have seen this photo I posted on Facebook and Instagram. Lucky me, Zach phoned on Mother's Day evening and the girls and I spoke to him for quite a while. There may even be a July trip home in the works. We'll see, though. 

I dropped a hint or two or three to Gordon that I'd like the girls to gift me with one of these mini books which would also make great a great Birthday gift for Mom as well. Here are some highlights for you.

You might have already guessed this, but as I was reading the reasons out loud to everyone on Mother's Day, #10 got the biggest chuckle. That's our Spunky.

There are 10 Things mini books for Dad, Mom, and You as well as an option to customize to any name {Oma, Nana, Papa, Papaw, Grandma} as well.


  1. Oh, I LOVE number 10. A good hairdo is such an important part of being a mother :)

  2. Awww, you have the sweetest girls! I bet they are so sweet because they have a wonderful mommy.

  3. Sounds like you had a great Mother's Day! There are never any pics of me either, because I'm always taking the photos:)
    Your girls are so sweet, and the flowers are gorgeous!
    You do have a good hairdo LOL

  4. Thanks, gals!

    And please know that my Zachi is a good boy, too, even if he takes months and months between phone calls. I'm blessed to have all three, but that's another story. And apparently, good hair-do's do make a difference. At least that's what I tell myself when I pay the stylist to cover the gray and give me the best haircut ever!

  5. This is the cutest gift ever!!! I love what they wrote, each entry is so precious (and oh so true ;)
