Mother's Day Gifts from the kids

My daughter loves to make cards and pictures for people on special occasions, like Mother's Day. But let's be honest, what do people do with them? Put them on the fridge for a while, then either throw them out or shove them in a drawer and forget about them. So this year for Mother's Day, I decided to help them create something that I knew she would really enjoy.

I started with a sugar cookie and flooded a white base and surrounded it with a gold frame.

 My 2 year old son painted this one. I was really surprised how well he stayed in the lines. He isn't all that great with the following of directions or paying attention to me in general.

Caroline, my almost 5 year old painted this. I am amazed how much her artwork has progressed in the last year! Too bad she wants to be a horse riding, fire-fighting doctor instead of an artist. Oh well, at least she'll be able to pay the bills. I guess... I hear horses are pretty expensive.

Happy Mother's Day everyone!
