My Mom

I have to brag about my mom for a minute. She just made us this amazing chess set for christmas. Actually the pictures I took of it does not even do it justice. She made each and every piece from scratch. Each one totally unique. She made a set for all of us kids. This will for sure be something we will cherish forever.
My Dad is so funny, he told us he would pay us $400 if we gave it back to him.( he just wanted us to know how hard my mom worked on them, and he wanted her to feel good too). What a great Daddy.
I wish I had my mother's talent, but I don't and that's ok. She has been teaching all her grandaughter's how to sew and create magical things like her and they are becoming pretty amazing too. For Emily's 11 birthday my parents gave Emily a sewing machine ( because Emily is trying to follow in her grandma's footsteps). She is getting really good. I will have to post some of the things she has made.
At least my mom's creativity rubbed off on my daughter, and for that I am grateful.

She's amazing! I am still trying to figure out how to make those dumb bibs made out of washcloths! You do have an amazing mom! You are pretty amazing too!
