Yesterday I got to spend the entire day with both my girls at their respective schools which was a perfect lead-in to this Mother’s Day weekend!
First I headed over to my youngest daughter’s Montessori school for their Mother’s Day Tea…with lots of singing and baked goodies.
Look at the pretty tissue-paper flowers that greeted the moms when we arrived!
Then this fabulous group of children sang beautiful songs for their mommies. Here is a snippet of one of the mother’s day themed songs:
We then enjoyed iced tea and baked treats that the kids had baked earlier in the week! That mini carrot cupcake was so delish!!
Mya then presented a drawing she made of the 2 of us. And you’ll notice that the both of us are wearing crowns on our heads! She is definitely my little princess!
And here is present #2: a stunning DIY art project! I am absolutely floored by how fabulous this keepsake piece of artwork is. And it is so easy to do. Just glue the crayons to the top of a canvas, turn on the blow-dryer at high heat and watch the melted wax drip down the canvas board!! And voila, you have a piece of original artwork!!
Oh and look how amazing her printing is getting!!
Here we are enjoying some tea and baked goodies together. Look how proud she looks after giving me her precious mother’s day gifts!!
After tea, I rushed down to the Medieval Times Castle in Toronto to volunteer at my oldest daughter’s Grade 4 class field trip! Mackenzie and I had a great time watching all the cute Knights joust and sword-fight, while wearing our crowns and eating with our fingers!
I am incredibly lucky to be the mom of these 2 precious little girls who I know love their mommy very much! I’m looking forward to spending this weekend with my family – and getting a ton of kisses and hugs!
My wish is that you too have a wonderful Mother’s day weekend filled with lots of love. And if you are not a mom, then I hope you get to spend some valuable time with your own mom!!
Happy Mother’s Day!!!
