a special Mother's Day gift!!

oh my!! is the weekend here already?! gosh, i'm losing track of the days... is that good or bad?! LOL... guess it's both... well, it is Saturday and our day is almost fully planned... but not before i put a little time into blogging...

after this it's hunting for the perfect plumerias (i think i'll just go get some from my old HS, perks when you have a family member working there =D), then putting the flowers together for a hair piece... breakfast with the family, then off to the photo studio for DD#1's hula halau pictures... and little play time in between and then an afternoon full of play at our annual Maui Matsuri gathering... what's Maui Matsuri you ask??? it's a Japanese/Okinawan celebration where the island of Maui honors all things Japanese... down to japanese and okinawan inspired food dishes, crafts, entertainment, the whole works... and the girls ar excited to get a visit from Hello Kitty... =D i think mommy is too... LOL...

so before i begin my day, i just wanted to share with you a very special gift from DD#1...
this is what she made in school for Mother's Day!!! a personalized mug, picture magnet and a card!! so sweet and precious!!! the magnet was actually wrapped up in tissue paper and tucked into the pot of the plant... isn't it just the most priceless and precious gift to receive?? she made me cry!!

i hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!! and i'll try and be back later to show you another creation... see you then!!
