Yo Mama!

So, what are you doing for Mother's Day?
Our recent Mother's Day celebrations have gotten a little less ordinary and more fun.

We always celebrate my birthday on Mother's Day, because it's always close to the day and sometimes falls on Mother's Day. Several years ago I started the tradition of making lasagna every year. We all meet up at my parents' house and have a good time.

My ex's mother passed away many years ago, so until I met John, sharing the day was never an issue. But now we both have mothers to celebrate. So last year, I got a great idea. Since my parents and his family really like each other and enjoy one anothers' company, I invited his family to just come join our celebration. They did, and we all had a great time!

So, we made that our new tradition. This year we'll have all three of the women over who helped make my husband the awesome man he is today; his mother, aunt, and grandmother.

I'll make the lasagna, we'll exchange gifts, and hang out and have fun.

(and my mom's not mad at me at the moment, woohoo!)

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Mother's Day!

How will you celebrate?
Do you have any traditions?

Nope, no traditions around here. It's a very relaxed day for the ladies. My Mother passed away 3 years ago and we live next door to my Mother-in-law. The guys usually grill something and we just hang out.

Sounds like a lovely day. We made the rounds today, my mother and grandmother and then my mother-in-law. Lots of eating involved, which is always good. Happy Mother's Day to you and yours.

Hubby came down with the flu. We were gonna go to a nice area and look at some pretty wild flowers. (Sigh) Happy Mother's Day!

No traditions here. I just hope to hear Happy Mother's Day but usually have to remind everybody what day it is. Jessie did bring home a paper flower for me on Friday. I'm going to miss these little homemade gifts when she gets out of elementary school.

We went on a picnic with a big ol' bucket of KFC! Had the best time TOGETHER! Hope your Mother's Day was extra special!
