All righty, for Mother's Day I typically pack up the kids and we go to church, where I usually get a piece of chocolate or a flower! Then we visit my mom and my mother in law. We give them their gifts (usually picture related stuff!) and we visit for a bit. Then we go home and I try to think of something special to make myself for dinner lol. Great giveaway!

We don't usually do anything on Mother's Day, or any other holiday for that matter.

irish said...

We usually go to my mom's house. We would make a big dinner there with her and my grandmother and we would spend hours in the kitchen talking about memories of our family. It was the day I looked forward to more than any other day of the year. My mom passed away suddenly in December so it will be my first Mother's Day without her. I have to admit that it brings tears to my eyes as the day gets closer. This year we will all gather at my mother's house like we always do and even though there might be tears, we will celebrate her life with the foods she loved to bake and eat and in our hearts know that she is with us.

crystal said...

Although dinner is usually at my grandparents house,they are in their 80's and it takes a lot out of them,so this year it is at my dads house..Go dad!!

For years I would always go out of town to visit my mother at a family gathering. But she passed away a few years ago, so now my hubby & children usually take me out to lunch and I get gifts and flowers. With any luck they'll CLEAN while I lounge in bed.

Anonymous said...

I spend Mother's Day honoring my mom whom I lost to cancer. I take time to think of all the good years we had together, and how she took such loving care of us as we were growing up. I enjoy looking at photos of her over the years. I usually pick get some sweetpea flowers and make a special bouquet in her honor.

Well, I guess this is 2 fold:

FIRST, YOU WON MY TEA GIVEAWAY, SO STOP BY FOR INSTRUCTIONS. YEA!

Secondly, we usually combine my Mother's Day with my own mother. This year, we're not sure as to what is happening. Often we go out to dinner or barbecue. I just might take her to tea instead.

Hugs, KJ

Compared to previous years this one will be unique because I will be the recipient of Mother's Day appreciation. Suffice it to say, it will be spent with the new arrivals to our family! :)

For 71 years I have spent the day with my Mother. Little did I know last year I would not be able to hug her and share laughter this Mother's Day. She is in my heart and her pure love will remain with me always! This year I wanted a quiet Mother's day but...our day will be spent with our children and grandchildren joining us for a Barbeque and remembering their Grandmother!

My mother lives completely across the country from me, so we usually just call. But when I was a kid, I would make her breakfast in bed (pancakes, the limit of my culinary abilities), and we'd find something to do in the area.

Mother's day has only applied to me for two years - I'm a later then sooner mom. If I'm lucky my husband will take us out but I won't count on it, it will take him aay from his World of Warcraft game. His mom did send me a sweet gift and told how wonderful a mom I am and thanked me for taking care of her grandson so well!

I will call my mom of course - but I do the flowers thing on my b'day - which of course is all thanks to her.
