Mother's Day 2012 Part 2

I wasn't planning to post today. Then I remembered! It's Note Card Party Week. Mr. Linky will be up tomorrow evening between 8 and 8:30. 


~Lemon Chiffon Superbells from my son and family and an unknown climber from my daughter~

One thing is certain, they all know that I love yellow. It is a blessing to get a jump start on decorative flowers to bless the house and deck by. 

 ~My favorite gifts of Mother's Day—My Son, Daughter, and Grands~

~Look at them go!~

And the boys gave me a gift of flowers, too!

~Tote Blue and, on the reverse side, Tote Red~

Did you have a great weekend? I'm coming to visit soon!


  1. Love these happy photos!!
    So glad your family was able to spend time with you.
    Our picnic went very well and we had an unexpected family join us....that was fun.

  2. Ahh...so great! Glad you got to spend time with them!

  3. Those photos are so wonderful. There is nothing like the joy of children to make a mother/grandmother smile. What else could we possibly need?

  4. Sweet pics of your littles. I've decided - the older one looks like his mom, and the younger one looks like his dad. Just in case you wanted to know... ;)

  5. HaHa! That boy talk tickled my funny bone, so cute!! Thanks for stopping by today and leaving a comment. I'll be back to link up for your note card party!

  6. What great photos! Looks like it was a wonderful Mother's Day Vee.

  7. Such little cuties. Glad you enjoyed your day! : )

  8. What an adorable family and such cute buddies! You captured treasured moments.

  9. It looks like mothers everywhere celebrated in the same way...with visits from their children...and flowers. Great photos!

    Did the sun shine everywhere yesterday? I'm thinking it did.

  10. Oh Vee these are so great. Thanks for sharing your family with us. I took a few photos at our daughter's house but it rained all day and on top of that left my camera at her house. Getting ready for the card party.

  11. Hi Vee,

    What a sweet family! The grands are so cute, and they look like a ball of energy. :) I love your yellow flowers and the tote bags are wonderful. It looks like you had the best Mother's Day!

    I can't believe it's time for Note Card Wednesday already -- Wow! I feel like we just had one. It's such a good party; I'll have to start looking for pictures now. Have a good day.

  12. Beautiful flowers Vee! Great tote bag....love those flowers the most!

  13. What happy times! I love your new tote bags! And I just can't believe it's already time for Note cards! I'm glad you reminded me! Hugs!

  14. SO CUTE!!!!!

    Your family is beautiful, Vee!

    Glad you enjoyed your Mother's Day!

  15. Wonderful photos and mosaic Vee. It looks like you had a great day and weekend. Enjoy the week! Hugs, Pamela

  16. A very nice weekend for you!! : )
    I haven't even looked or thought about the Note Card Party yet. This once a month sure comes up quick!
    Liked seeing all your pretty pictures.

  17. Great photos of a loving and fun-loving family. I can see the mischief in your daughter's eyes!

    Yikes, Note Card party already. I'll have to look back and see what I've got. I like this party - it's fun and makes me go through old posts, sometimes wishing for a red editing pencil.

  18. Vee, you are blessed with a beautiful family. What great photos of Mother's Day you have shared. Is that climbing plant a brown-eyed Susan??
    I'll be happy when I have posted enough to have enough photos to join your note card party!!!
    Have a nice afternoon.

  19. Those little grands are so cute and getting very big!

    I think the climber from your daughter is "Black Eyed Susan vine". I've grown it and loved it - it is an annual here, but nearly perennial in warmer climates!

    It grows easily and well and is so cheery!

    So glad you had such a great day!


  20. Oh my goodness, I can't believe it's that time already! I'd better get my act together over here.
    I think your Mother's Day looks like a very happy day. The Boy Talk mosaic is so cute. The yellow flowers are lovely. I remember planting the vine years ago, but I don't remember what it was called.
    Love the tote bag. You must smile every time you see it. Nothing like those handmade children's gifts to warm the heart.

  21. It looks like you had a great day -- and I love those tote bags!

  22. How sweet! Glad that you had a wonderful day!

  23. You have a lovely family, Vee. I love the tote bag! Of course the flowers are gorgeous, too. Glad you had a happy day!

  24. Sweet family--what a wonderful gift to have them visit! Love your new header!

  25. Wow, gorgeous photos! I love all the happy smiles :)

  26. Happy belated Mother's Day to you! I love your flowers....and it looks like you had a wonderful weekend!


  27. Wonderful images, very cute kids.

  28. So thrilled you had a great day. The kids are all so cute.

    Now, is your note party every 3rd Wednesday every month? I hope so 'cause that way, I can know where I am. I am olden, ya know, and have trouble keeping up with everyone and their doings.:)

    xoxo bj

  29. i can't get over the adorable yellow
    flowers! my son is marrying a
    lovely girl with the sunniest dispo-
    tion. her favorite color?

    yellow. :)

  30. What a wonderful day! Your unknown climber is "schwarzäugige Susanne" (blackeyed susan?)
    Have a great week,

  31. Vee
    What a photogenic family you have!
    You'll be treasuring those sweet bags for a long time, I bet.
    So glad your Mother's Day was a good one.

  32. What great pictures of your sweet family. I like the "boy talk" collage. ~ Abby

  33. Absolutely precious photos! Vee! So glad your day was filled with wonderful memories..
    Your Mosaic Monday flowers of time spent in a garden beautiful!.
    Enjoy your day.

  34. Somehow I missed this post entirely yesterday! Although I am a "follower", your posts do not always come up on my Blogger dashboard (annoying!)...and since I had seen Mosaic Monday, I didn't know to come and look for another. (Grrr...Blogger.) Anyway, I'm glad to see it now, because it is a fabulous post. Love seeing the pictures of your beautiful family...and the flowers...and the tote bag! What grandmother would not treasure such a wonderful, meaningful gift?!
    Oh, you had a lovely Mother's Day!

  35. Loved seeing the family and how the Grands are growing.

    Mothers Day in march here.

  36. It looks like you had a very happy Mother's Day, Vee! Wasn't the weather lovely? I am hoping for a repeat this weekend ;)
    I love the flower design totes your grands made for you!

  37. Vee, I am glad to know that your Mother's day was awesome! Those boys sure look like little characters! What cute bags, too.


  38. I'm so behind on reading my favorite blogs ... I'm wondering if I'll ever get a schedule.

    Your family and flowers are beautiful....I see love and happiness!

  39. Looks like you had a lovely day! If I'm not mistaken the climber is a 4 o clock?

  40. Kids, grandkids, flowers and time spent outside makes for a wonderful Mother's Day! I had all of those, minus grandkids. :D Glad yours was great, too!
