Happy Mother's Day

Imagine waking up to these 3 faces!
I celebrate Mother's Day 365 days a year.
My birthday was Saturday & today is Mother's Day, needless to say I've been milking it.
I spent yesterday in bed with a pile of books & mags, my best friends Ben & Jerry, bad TV & 4 cutie pies waiting on me hand & foot!
I have to show you my favorite MD gift.
Aren't kindergarten projects the best?!!
Here's Lily's.
Here's Philip's. He loves me because I give him 'breaka-bars'.
That's a breakfast bar to the rest of the world.
 Owen loves that I give him money after doing chores.
I know Supernanny would blow a gasket, but if I didn't bribe my kids nothing would get done!

 In case your wondering, Owen came closest in the age game, but Philips getting an extra Twinkie for dessert!!

Apparently, Owen & I spend all day on the couch hugging & watching Oprah while Lily & Philip clean!
Thank you sweet friends for your birthday wishes.  I've got some presents to show you next week.
I hope your having an amazing weekend & a wonderful Mother's Day!

Lisa, Beautiful faces to wake up to. My children are all grown and I do miss those wonderful gifts they made. (all stored in a trunk upstairs) Enjoy your Mother's Day. I did so enjoy this post.

This is what makes blogging fun. I laughed out loud and read these to my husband, (I never do that).
Specially while you hug and kiss Owen and make Lily and Philip clean!
Happy Mom's day,

As I read this I had to say "Oh my Gosh" - you see, my Mother's b-day was Saturday and today is Mother's Day! Too funny!

Happy Birthday & Happy Mom's Day, Lisa. Your post is so precious, those sweet faces, that's what life is all about.

Hi Lisa, If I had known you became 90 yesterday, I would have sent you denture fixative cream, a magnifying class and a hearing aid instead of ..., .... and .... ;-). Well, your little ones may have missed your correct age but they were so right with picturing you as very nice, very fun and yery special.
Happy Mother's Day, my friend!
Hugs to you,
Julia said...

Adorable! So, are they fixing you your faves, roast chicken, brocoli and artichokes? Sounds like a feast!

Have a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine started great, with Lee Lee crawling in bed with me to watch Enchanted. After a snuggly morning like that, anything else the day has to offer is just gravy.

I love all the sweet school things my kids make too...I have had a busy weekend myself, my birthday was on Friday and then today. So I guess I have a blog friend who shares my week in May too.

I hope your day is a great and happy one, Lisa-

SherryRoseBella said...

Lisa, those kids are the cutest! I love, love, love the cards they made for you! I save all the ones my grandkids make for me & laugh my head off when I go back and read them. You are one blessed mommy! Enjoy each minute because they will be grown before you know it. Happy Mother's Day times 3!
See ya soon, hon!

Anne Lorys - Fiona and Twig said...

Those answers the kids gave are priceless!!! And I know how old you are, but I ain't talkin'...let's just say you're somewhere between 20 and 90. ;-)

Happy Mother's Day, Lurd!


sissie said...

Hi Lisa,
Happy Birthday and Happy Mother's Day. My goodness but you have been blessed with three of the most darling children. I love their sweet writings. Isn't it they have you somewhere between 20 and 90! LOL!


Rella said...

Those are the cutest ever! What a riot it must be in that household...all three the same age...eeekkkkkkkkkkkkk. Too cute.

Primitive Echoes said...

This was just too cute. My son is all grown up now but I remember these days like it was yesterday. Too funny, poor deprived kids. Funny age difference.


Happy birthday and Mother's Day! Sweet words from your precious babes. Enjoy those fun days and cute sayings. Thanks for visiting my lil' speck of the blogosphere. My twin? Yikes, so much for OOAK! ~ Angela

marie said...

Such sweet faces and those gifts are the best! Awesome answers. They're sure to bring smiles for years to come!
My children are 27,29,32 & 34 and they made similar gifts for me way back when...I still have them! They're some of my most special treasures.

Marie Lost Bird Studio said...

Hi Lisa,
happy Birthday and happy Mother's Day.Just too cute.You are so lucky to have them.
Big hugs,

Laurie said...

Oh, your kiddos are ADORABLE! It sounds like you've had a lovely Mother's Day weekend (and I did, too! Yay for us!) 90 years old! Hee hee! Supernanny gasket!! You crack me up!

sonya said...

Hi Lisa,
They are the cutest! Believe it or not, you will cherish those letters all the more when they are grown.
Happy Birthday and Happy Mother's Day.

suziqu's thread works said...

Oh Lisa just how special a day did you have with two celebrations. What darling little treasures and those letters will have more meaning as the years go by.
What a wonderful mum you are!

trash talk said...

I guess a steady diet of broccoli, artichokes and roast chicken is what it takes to be 90 and look 20!
Love the different responses to the same questions. You've done a wonderful job of raising each of your triplets to be unique and special individuals. Loved this post...and love you!

trash talk said...

P.S. Happy Birthday. I have one coming up this month as well. If you're somewhere between 20 and 90...that must put me somewhere betwixt 40 and 160!

Lisa said...

How funny your kids are! Happy Birthday and Happy Mother's Day! Hope you are on the mend. :)

Petite Michelle Louise said...

soooo precious! Oh my goodness....that each of them think you're either 20, 50 or 90! Hysterical! How sweet these gifts are!! You are one LUCKY, lucky mom! :)

kandeland said...

Linda Carole Bloom said...

Just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying your new book - Building Beautiful Blogs. Happy Mom's Day, Love, Linda

Sherlyn said...

Your mother's day gifts looks like the most precious gift a mother can ever receive from her kids. Your kids have tried their best to express themselves by penning down their thoughts about you ! There words are funny may be but the expression is sweet.
Mother’s Day Special
Mothers’ Ideal Mother’s Day!

Storybook Woods said...

Now there is a special Mother's day. What more could you ask for. I think it is neat the one consistent thing your children got about you, is your love of art!!! xoxox Clarice

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

Those little ones are just amazing Lisa Marie!!! I was giggling to myself the whole time I was reading this!!!
I'm so happy you had such a wonderful Birthday/Mother's Day weekend!!!!!

Cottage Panache said...

Lisa, this brings back memories of those special kid to Mom gifts before they actually have money!They are definately keepers for the memory boxes! And my how your three little cuties have grown! Hope you had a Wonderful Birthday and Mother's Day. I was singing the lazy song all day, only without Ben & Jerry!

saltbox treasures said...

So precious! Enjoy it all.
Happy Birthday and Mother's Day.

Cindy said...

What sweet faces! I love your blog!

Erica said...

OMG! These are HILARIOUS! Thanks for sharing - I really enjoyed. I remember when my niece used to believe that my mom was 30 and my husband was older than everyone.

Sharon said...

Lisa, it does not get any better then this for Mother's Day. The truth and innocence of young children is priceless.
I am glad your Mother's Day was just the way you wanted it....lazy.

FredaB said...

Hi Lisa

Aren't kids wonderful. I too laughed out loud while reading their cards. I really laughed at the 90.

Enjoy them my dear because they grow so fast. Our oldest grandson goes to college this fall and I can remember him that size playing legos at our house and it seems just like yesterday.



Linda said...

What a sweet post, Lisa! You are truly blessed with those three cuties! Hope you had a wonderful birthday, too!

Suz said...

Your kids are growing up and are so adorable. There is something so appealing about their sweet faces. The pages about "mom" are hilarious. Glad you had such a wonderful day. Lying in bed eating magazines and eating ice cream is my idea of fun!!!

Callie said...

I loved all those handmade presents and still treasure them today. I still have some of them. Wonderful photos!

vicki said...

Oh Lisa- those sweet smiling faces are adorable. You truly do have Mother's Day all year long. Their little gifts are priceless-- treasure them always! 90 years old- that's too cute!!
