I love my mom.

I love my mom. I think everyone could say that they love their mom even more after they've had their own child. It's only been a little over a year since Amelie was born and the time has made me appreciate the effort that my mom put into raising me even more. I love having a child to care for and my mom had four pretty close in age. She must have been supermom.  I think about her numerous times when Amelie wants me to hold her while I'm unloading the dishwasher or cooking dinner.  You know, the tasks that normally require two hands.  I can't imagine that my mom's hands were ever empty.  Even now she said that she has a habit of standing around in the kitchen to eat her meals because she never really sat down to eat when my brother, sisters and I were around to keep her busy.  My mom has always been a helper to everyone around her and she has been such a blessing to me since Amelie was born. Of course she has to have her time with her granddaughter, but I know she tries to help me as well.
I made a few cookies (surprise!) for my mom and John's mom. 

Teapot and teacup cookies
 Teapots for my mom to match her favorite collections.

Brush embroidery cookies, stencil cookies
Flowers just because for my mother-in-law.

A card I made to tell her of my new revelation.

My post today would not be complete if I didn't include some pictures of Amelie since I am a proud mother on Mother's day. I am so thankful to have been able to experience the joy of mothering such a happy little girl.

Everyone loves smiley pictures of little ones, but I like pictures with silly faces that you just don't appreciate until you see that single second captured by the camera.

On another note...I've been wanting to make my own ice cream for some time. I've looked at ice cream makers but I really didn't want another kitchen appliance. Johnny was thoughtful enough to buy a separate bowl for my kitchen aid mixer that churns ice cream as a gift for Mother's day.  I am really excited to use it. I think it is supposed to be in the 80's on Tuesday - perfect day. I'll have to get busy looking for a good recipe.
I hope every mom has had a great day today!
