Mother's Day 2017

This mother's day I wasn't able to spend with my mom as she is back in Maryland, though we plan to celebrate when we get together. I will update more about that soon and share with you all! :-)


I love my girls so much every single day and though they are always thoughtful it still melts my heart with the things they come up with to make my Mother's Day so special. This year they planned a scavenger hunt and Jerry made a big breakfast for us. This is Kathleen holding one of my surprises from the scavenger hunt. :-)


                              That I found under another bag of surprises in our pantry :-)


The scavenger hunt took me inside and outside to find everything and what a beautiful day we had!


                            These antique dishes were in the box and I absolutely love them!!


The scavenger hunt consisted of several mother's plates from Germany, a series and they are so pretty.


They also got me this chicken trinket box. One day soon we will have chickens again and be able to enjoy all the fresh eggs!




                                                                My beautiful Hayley :-)


                                           Love this picture of the three of us together :-)


Kathleen made this card for me at school....


                                           Our table for breakfast simple, yet elegant ;-)



                                  My beautiful Kathleen :-) Fresh picked daisies from our yard.



Now this plate was the only one that kind of creeped me out because of the clown, lol... I'm not a fan of them and even the little girl in the picture doesn't look too sure about him.. lol.



The card  Kathleen gave me was for a free TCBY yogurt at our local location. Love how she added in that she would like one too, lol.


                                               So yummy! Perfect treat for a hot day!



Then they took me out shopping and we had a great time. This guy here carried our bags and drove us around all day. He's always making me smile and I just love him. :-) Thank you all for such a wonderful Mother's Day!!! I really enjoyed myself and the time I got to spend with all of you. Much love to all 3 of you!!



                                                                            Blessings,
                                                                                  Jill

Wow! What extravagant love your family showed you! Your girls and husband are so very thoughtful and creative. The plates are beautiful and I agree about that little clown. I've been wondering how you've been doing. I hope you have fully recovered.

Jill, your girls are so sweet. The scavenger hunt was very creative and you scored some beautiful gifts. I imagine the girls had loads of fun putting it all together. Love your man's smile. It's so great to see your happy family on your blog. Hugs, Nancy

It sounds like you had a nice Mother's Day, Jill. These are such cute pictures of the kids. How sweet that your daughter picked you daisies from the garden. The chicken trinket box is so cute. I collect those boxes as well. And the Mother's plate really got to me, as I just posted a porcelain plate to announce some very special news.
