Mother's Day and 12 on the 12th

The mom's plus a granddad and a kiddo.

Had a good Mother's Day. After church we had lunch at Macaroni Grill with my family, then that afternoon I got a 2 hour nap. It doesn't get much better than that!
For my mom I did completely handmade stuff! I made her a tote and had it monogrammed and also made her card. Even though I'm a big paper crafter, I don't really do cards, so it's fun to make one every now and then.
I'm participating in a little project called 12 on the 12th. I'm supposed to have 12 pics to represent my day, do a layout with them, and do this for the next 12 months. We'll see how well I do to remember! I really like this idea, because as you'll see I got some pics of things I wouldn't normally capture with the camera.

Lunch time and yep, she's still in PJ's.

My scrap desk mess with part of a current project I worked on during N's nap.

So with a few hours left in the day, that's the wrap up in snap shots. AND I got all that laundry done!!

The 12 on 12 is a pretty neat idea. Maybe I'll jump in next month. Somebody at you house loves them some nuts, don't they!?

Yep Telah- it seems like they must be nut lovers. Maybe they are just concerned with eating a healthy, high in fat snack.

WOO HOO & Congrats on that laundry.
I will be home Wed. if you get bored- come do mine!

You are so lucky to be able to get a photo with four generations in it. That is totally awesome!!

Happy "Belated" Mother's Day. Love the gift that you made for your mom. It turned out really nice.

That is a neat challenge. I might have to check into that.

What is up with all those nuts? You guys having a big party or do you just eat that many?
