Mother's Day Memories

Mother's Day--A day celebrating our Moms and spending time with family.  I could not think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon. 
 This year we had an extended celebration spending the day with Alex's Mom on Sunday and then having my parents over for dinner on Monday.  It has become a tradition with my mom and I to take a photo of just the two of us.  I scrapbook the memory and add it to her on-going album of  past Mother's Day photos. 

I love this tradition so much that several years ago I started an album for my son as well.  A picture of just the two of us.  It is fun to look through the book and see how much he has grown. 

Another fun tradition that I insist on each year is a picture of my Mom, Alex and I. Alex is not fond of getting his picture taken but because it is Mother's day he agrees.  However he does add his own silly spin on things.  There is a quote by Dr. Seuss that describes him perfectly......
"Today you are you;
 That is truer than true!
There is no one alive;
 Who is you-er than you!"
Truthfully, I wouldn't have it any other way....

I guess he comes by it naturally.

Fun Mother's day memories that I will treasure forever.
