Happy Mother's Day

I hope all mothers had an awesome day!

I had such a wonderful day with my family I am very thankfull for having them. I am thankfull for my two beautiful, healthy children, for my dear husband my parents, my sister, my in-laws all my family members and friends and for even those people who are not my friends...for those who touched my life in any way, I am thankful for them since I could not be the mother I am today.

In the morning I had to run out to pick up food for our lunch. I went to one of the restaurants in town - Chinook - and I picked up some tasty Rosemary Chicken in mushroom sauce. I am a vegetarian so I could not tell you how good it was personally, but my family loves it. I also went to an organic grocery store - Nature's Emporium - where they have a little cafe and I bought some dishes from them: tofu in spicy plum sauce, potatoe salad, kale salad, roasted vegetables and quinoa. The lunch was very nice. Than we opened presents and had some yummy lemon poppy seed cake I made Saturday evening. After a slice of cake and some coffee we moms went for a walk with the kids. I really enjoyed spending some time with Linda ( MIL ) since she is so busy with her business all the time we hardly get to see each other.
I made an acrylic album for my mother-in-law. You can see the pictures below. It is very simple nothing fancy I mostly used CTMH products, all the paper is CTMH and some of the embellishments.... Since my mom is not here I wanted to include her in the album too.
I am very thankful for having such an amazing lady as my mother-in-law. She does so much for us and when you need her she is always there to support you. She is a great mom and grandma too. I miss my mom too since she is in Hungary and I am really looking for my parents visit in the summer!

This is a picture of Riley, he just mastered how to hold his shaker and shake it. He had so much fun with his little toy.

My babies and I.

Me with my babies. Good thing I got this picture done since we were not taking pictures today.
That is all for today. Off I go to relax with my hubby. Finally Chloe stopped coming out of her bedroom, I have no idea what has gotten into her....and Riley is asleep for a little while now.

Have a good night!


  1. What a cute family!!! I really like your album and it's kicking me in the butt to get mine done! LOL

  2. Great job making your acrylic album...very nice!
    I also have one posted on my blog that I made as a bridal shower gift for a young lady that I've known since she was a little girl.
    If you get a chance, please stop in a check it out. The pictures got posted kind of flipped around though. :-/
