All I plan is to help the kids in my Sunday night art class make a framed photo of themselves for their mom.

Not sure yet.  My one son is 4 hours away, plus that day he is leaving to go to school for a week for where he works.  My other son lives an hour away.  He is a high school math teacher during the week and on weekends and during the summer he works at a Christian radio station.  We used to go out for all birthdays and Mother's Day and Father's Day, etc. but not any longer with my husband's MS.  We will probably get some kind of take out and my one son will come over.

No plans right now.  We will probably make a trip to visit my mom and my mother-on-law though.

My daughter and I plan to have a garden party (a "planting party," I called it) and hope to get a lot of the plants/flowers I ordered this spring into the ground, and get our fountain going.  That is the hope. As I write this, the temp is 35 degrees, so this might not be an option after all!  My son says he might help with the "party" if he doesn't have to work.  My husband doesn't do anything for me on Mother's Day, since, as he puts it, I am not HIS mother Laughing!

My oldest grandson graduates on May 7th. All the family will be here for that.
We will probably be resting that day. I have 7 grandchildren from age 18 years
6 months so we will be busy. I love it when all of ua get together.

I r'eceived my "Mother's Day Present" from my husband yesterday....A new Dell laptop computer.  I'm still trying to move everything from my old laptop to my new one, and get it set up as I like it.  There are some things I may just leave on my old computer,,,we aren't  going to get rid of it.  As for the day itself, not sure yet.   My kids seem to always leave things to the last minute, so I must be patient.  My son's birthday is May 9th, the day after Mother's Day so we will have a double celebration.  Actually He was born on Mother's Day..(a perfect present).   He will be 46 this year.....I feel old!

I need help getting a  Mother's Day gift.
I have to come up with something great for my daughter.  She is the best mom.  She has helped me through this purchase of the house my husband and I are moving to.  I don't think I could have done it without her help.  I have known her since she was 5 when I met her dad and she has always been a responsible young lady.  I keep telling her that she is the best mom but I want to do something special.   Any ideas would be helpful.

Nikki,  How about something to pamper her.   A pedicure, or a manicure, or a facial, or a day at a spa?  What ever fits your budget.  Better yet, have a girls day together, and both of you get pedicures or whatever.

Susan and Barbara both great suggestions.  We will probably be going out anyway.  She and her husband and kids are going on a little vacation so I will be "babysitting" the dogs and cats..may be one of the reasons she wanted me to move into her neighborhood! 
I think I may get a certificate for a massage for her. Just might take the kids for a few hours one evening so she and her husband can go out for a nice quiet dinner with out kids. 
Thanks for the ideas.

My Mom and Mom in Law have been gone for awhile now so I have always done things for two of the older women on my street.If your mom is no longer here why not remember another sweet lady this Mother's Day!
