In my opinion, it's too often that we can't see through all the filters we put over our eyes in day to day life, the value, worth and importance of our own family. So, I felt it was time for a family oriented post! Yesterday was my Mother's birthday :) And although there wasn't the means to do a big celebration, we celebrated 'Mom' none the less!
Grandma showing Foster how it's done for his birthday next month!
Foster excitedly playing with Grandma's birthday balloons! I'm happy to report, they survived!
What do you think? It's my first attempt at a four layer cake! I call it, 'Pink Lemonade Cake'. Ok... so it's a box of Duncan Hines white cake mix with the rind of one lemon added in, and some food colouring :). Oh... and buttercream frosting with some fresh lemon zest on top. And blueberries!
Plain white gift bag and envelope for the card were stamped and a little phrase added along side.
Foster knows Grandma likes notebooks, so he made this one a little extra special by putting his footprint on the inside cover so she would always remember it was from him.
I love my Mom. She is a wonderful, warm and selfless person, almost to a fault. The world, or at least, mine, wouldn't be nearly as great without her. Through all the years of growing up, she always made things interesting and fun. She encouraged my creativity no matter what it was, how messy, or how short lived! I'm happy that my little boy Foster gets to share in a part of that with her too.
Thanks Mom :) Happy Birthday! xo
