Happy Mama’s Day is too much for Sesame to say so she shortens it to “Happy, Mama!” Mike and she even wrote Happy Mama down our front steps and sidewalk with sidewalk chalk. So cute.
I wanted to make something nice for my mom and actually found the time to do it. I thought I had it done and in the mail in time but I was wrong. Sadly she didn’t get it in time to open it on Mother’s Day but now that she has it, I can post it here.
I saw little mini scrapbooks at Michaels and had a “hey, I could make that!” moment. I cut the pages out of an old cereal box then covered them with small pieces of scrapbook paper that I found at work. The whole book is smaller than an index card. I cut the pages to be different widths and cut pretty designs into the edges. I love this picture on the front. It’s my mom and little baby me.
would have liked to put a picture of my grandma with my mom when she was younger, so that it could be chronological, but this is one of the only pictures I have of them together. This picture was the last one taken of my grandma. I miss her. The picture on the right is my mom with my 2 day old brother. I was a month shy of 2, almost exactly the age Sesame is now.
I’m lacking in photos from my childhood (lots exist but none are in my possession) so I jumped ahead to some big milestones- my brother’s high school graduation, my wedding and newborn Sesame.
Then comes a picture of my mom with little Sesame and an accordion-folded mother’s day message.
Mike helped me pick out this picture. It’s my mom with her 2 kids and granddaughter. I think it’s a cute picture for the back page.
