Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mom's day! The one day each year where I get to do whatever I want! Laugh out loud...this morning consisted of making chocolate chip pancakes even though I have a strict no-cooking on Mother's Day rule. All it took was a please from my kids.

Being a mom has totally changed me as a person. I am more loving and affectionate. I have learned to ask for help and realize things are not usually in my control. I try to be a better, more patient person each day.

I want them to remember their childhood and me with love and fondness. I think that is why I scrap. I want to capture all the moments of what they did, where they went and how their personalities are! I think my favorite layouts are about those little moments and details that, unless put on paper, might otherwise be forgotten. We will always remember our summer vacations, but will we remember the cute things they say or their fleeting past times.

Brings me to these two layouts! The first documents Nathan's love for puzzles. He has a gift with them...since he was really young. His preschool teachers bring new ones in to try to challenge him and he conquers them each time.

He was actually putting together a puzzle in these photos. I love to watch his wheels turn when he does them!

And Ella, my drama queen and larger than life character! She always is a mess as girlie as she is!

Supplies: All from the May Nook kit: October Afternoon paper, wildcards, stickers, Making Memories buttons, flowers, October Afternoon & American Crafts alphabet

She is a diva tomboy! LOL!

These two are the joys of my life and I thank God for blessing me with them.

Happy Mother's Day to you!
