My girls LOVE any reason to celebrate - and they LOVE making, buying & giving presents.
This year for mom's day - they had so much fun helping me with the gift for Nana Hunt. They made her this beautiful necklace: which they instructed her via phone call before she got the package, that she MUST wear to church on Mother's Day (so glad it arrived in time!) They were absolutely thrilled when they saw this pic of Nana wearing their necklace at church! We also sent her a few other things, the girls picked out some gum for her (their current favorite treat), and we sent a church book and a Jillian Michaels workout video. My mom has been doing awesome on a diet she's on, and has recently lost 22 pounds!!! We thought the video would be a fun way to encourage her to keep up the great work! So proud of you mom!!! We love you Nana!
They didn't get to be quite as hands on with Grammy's gift...but they spent most of the time I was working on this looking over my shoulder, sitting on my lap, squirming on the chair next to me, etc. etc. Jen & I each made one of these "sweetest blessings" trees. She gave hers to her mom, Nan, who is Grammy's sister. This tree has pics of all Grammy's 12 grandkids, and room for lots more! We love you Grammy!!!
I would have made one for Nana as well, but I kind of ran out of time, and knew it would cost a fortune to ship one of these to my mom...so maybe for Christmas...hmm, back to the craft store - anyone want to join me on this one?
